Slip Valet is “an accessory valet designed for a simpler and more elegant means of storing everyday personal accessories at home or at the office.“-taken from CCDG website.

The idea was very simple–Reduce the idea of storing your daily personal effects in a clean unobtrusive manner.

I also really wanted the installation to be as fool-proof as possible. The easiest way I could think of doing this was with an extrusion with laser-etched instructions on the bottom. The form had to be rather invisible so it would disappear and all you are left with is a tidy and simple spot to place your things.

I received the prototypes that I had made very quickly and they worked just as I had hoped.

I’m currently working with a few vendors on pricing and executing the finished part. When I head off to China next month, I’m hoping to talk to a few addition vendors to talk about packaging and such.

    I really love this piece! It is very elegant and concise. My only concern would be the end-users who are installing this unit. Using a typical drywall screw might be difficult to get the right amount of tension on the fastener to hold the valet in place over long periods of daily use. A custom fastener with a stepped flange would do the trick nicely.

    Really great work sir.

    Hey thanks! I know what you mean on the drywall screw. The extrustion design actually uses the arc of the head of the screw to flex the part into place. The tolerance is a little bit on the high end, however, it seems to work. I like the stepped flange fastener idea. I also thought about a secondary slot that runs along the face of the mounting area that would allow for post-installation tightening. Hmm….
