The Journey Begins

The Craft Easy Tools safety eye pliers had it’s beginnings in 2023 when a crocheter asked an inventor to create a tool to take away the pain of applying safety eyes. The idea was to create a plier type tool. After many hours of designing and adjusting those designs, the safety eye pliers were born. There have been many variations created, with improvements made along the way. Many hours were spent with the mold manufacturer, many sleepless nights and body aches from long days at work after. It has all been worth it to see the testimonials that keep coming regarding the tool.

Refining The Design

The design took on a 3 size format for a couple months when we started offering prototypes for sale. This allowed us to pay for our prototyping materials and to get some very valuable feedback on the tool.

Sizing was updated in February 2024 thanks to lots of feedback and testing. The tool is now available in just two sizes that cover all safety eyes. There are still some new design aspects that will come to light but we are well on our way to a great tool that is changing lives.

In April, Kickstarter was launched to raise funds but the details were not made clear to everyone and so that campaign was ended for some time to restructure and later relaunch. During this time, Mike spoke to the manufacturer who will be making the tool and we were able to redesign the tool into one tool for all sizes.
