We’re just hands-on hard-working folks providing customers handcrafted hard-wearing products at a fair price. It’s really quite simple.

Founder & CEO, LOCTOTE INDUSTRIAL BAG COMPANY

OUR STORY


The idea behind LOCTOTE came as a result of a family vacation in St. Croix. My wife and kids had all gone back to the room for the day, and I decided to stay out on the beach and do some snorkeling. Before heading out into the water, I put my phone, earbuds, and cash in my shoe, which I covered with a towel and left on a beach chair. I swam out about 100 yards, and when I looked back to shore, I saw an individual shuffling through my stuff on the beach, and then walk away with something in his hand. I yelled to him, and swam back to shore as fast as I could, but by the time I got there, both he and my stuff were gone. This was a real downer for the vacation, and I decided that I needed a solution to prevent something like this from ever happening again.

That night I got on my laptop (because that’s what I do on vacation), and I began my search for a solution to the problem. To me, the problem was more complex than just a way to prevent my personal items from being stolen when I was at the beach. I had a whole list of requirements for this product I was seeking. First and foremost, I wanted a way to carry my personal items that would enable me to securely fasten them to a stationary object so they couldn’t be tampered with or stolen. In my mind, this would require a locking mechanism that couldn’t be broken, cut, or torn, and the container itself also needed to be made of something that was resistant to cutting or tearing. I basically wanted a product that would be impenetrable to thieves of all kinds, including protecting my credit cards and passports that contained RFID chips from unauthorized scanning (digital pickpocketing). Conversely, I wanted something stylish, attractive, and functional — something that would seamlessly fit into my everyday life, that I would enjoy using and be proud to be seen using. More and more, this was sounding to me like some kind of a bag.

That’s what I needed — an everyday “go to” bag that would meet all my technical requirements, and still be soft, foldable/packable, comfortable, highly functional, attractive and fashionable, and durable — and one that my wife would want to carry too. That shouldn’t be hard to find, I thought. Well, it was. In fact there was no product on the market that was even remotely close to what I was looking for. After exhausting my search, I began the process of creating the bag I was seeking. It took hundreds of hours of research, and countless prototypes and failed attempts. In the end, we have created a product that will blow your mind. Bags that are soft and beautiful, packed with features, and insanely durable. Some people say that our products are overkill, and that we must be over-compensating for something. Maybe.

OUR PHILOSOPHY


Create products that enable people to Live More and Worry Less.

This is our mission, our passion, and the reason Loctote exists. We saw an unmet need in the marketplace, so we set out to create the best ultra-tough, practical, functional, and attractive theft-resistant products that ever existed. Products that people desire to use, are proud to use, and that perform beyond expectations.  

Our approach is simple. Every product starts out with a clear understanding of the problems it is intended to solve. We focus on pragmatism and practicality in developing real-world use cases and design alternatives. We stretch way outside the box to implement proven materials and components in ways that are both novel and innovative, or to develop new materials and components altogether. We push ourselves, and our partners, to the edge of our capabilities in order to create things that have never been done before.  

Our success is rooted in a set of principles that define who we are and how we work. Day in and day out, they guide us in everything we do.

  • Keep it simple.
  • Solve real problems.
  • Learn from mistakes.
  • Embrace innovation.
  • The customer is our boss.
  • Never cut corners.
  • Always be truthful.
