Spinlock are thrilled to have won the DAME award for our lifejacket lights, winning the category Lifesaving and safety equipment and also winning overall.
"The DAME Jury always welcomes rethinking of everyday items of marine equipment, especially when it leads to enhanced safety at a price point that is affordable by all. Spinlock’s Lume-On is a tiny LED light that attaches underneath the bladder of any lifejacket. When activated, it uses the bladder as a diffuser, turning the whole lifejacket into a glowing light. Designed to work alongside existing lifejacket lights and sold in pairs, the Lume-On’s cleverness of thought, simplicity of application and very accessible cost was widely admired by the Jury. An excellent joint winner of the DAME Awards, perfectly illustrating the value of design in every detail, however small the item."

Spinlock also got a special mention for the Rig-Sense, the new rig tension gauge for repeatable settings.
"The Jury recognised this as well designed re-work of a traditional piece of equipment using modern technology. Spinlock’s Rig-Sense was developed to generate consistent and repeatable measurement of loads on 2mm-5mm wire and fibre. It utilises a calibrated composite leaf spring to output load readings to an App. These measurements are displayed in kilogrammes without the need for calculations on tables."
