/PRNewswire/ -- Four years ago, electrician – Jason Stile – encountered a highly frustrating situation, while doing some volunteer construction work, and dreamt of a solution to the problem, which he subsequently named AjustLock – "Ajust" without the "d" because the company represents a philosophy of just causes and noble products. Based on that principle, the new company was named Ajustco, – short for "A
Company" – that creates innovative solutions by making simple
to existing products that make them well...
The Patent Pending AjustLock solves the common problem whereby doors, gates and stalls get misaligned due to loosing of hinges, and the barrel bolt lock no longer secures the door properly. The typical solution to this age-old problem would be to shift one or both parts of the lock back into alignment, which requires unscrewing them, drilling new holes and then patching and painting the old holes. Stile wanted to come up with a better solution to this dilemma, and his dream back in 2009 provided the answer. Four years later, with the formal market introduction of AjustLock, at the National Hardware Show in
, the management duo of Stile and Serial Entrepreneur,
, supported by an array of angel investors and incubation by Blueliner Marketing, is bringing Stile's dream to life.
"I knew from the start that this dream had to become a reality," said Stile, "no matter what it took. That is why I approached the most successful people that I know for advice, partnership and investment. I am learning from them, and together, we are going to make a lot more dreams come true."
AjustLock threatens to unseat a cadre of current household names that sell what Stile calls "now outdated" barrel bolt locks, in what is a billion dollar slice of the enormous global hardware security market. "There is no reason to use the old lock anymore," adds Rousta, "as Jason's invention renders is obsolete. It is like when they added wheels to the suitcase – you just don't see the old product in use much after a while. Within five years, we believe that AjustLock will be the de facto barrel bolt lock, effectively phasing out present day models."
