Anyway, the Lee Valley Cargo Liner is on the left, my two products are on the right.

Huh… it is a very different product though. Theirs is meant for lining the inside of a bed. But yours seals up a load water tight like a pouch.

I can’t figure out what’s upsetting. Am I missing something?

I guess it’s the silver poly, and the fact that they gave no reason for backing out, then suddenly something at least partly similar.

Or as I said, I just wanted to vent! ;-)

well, if you showed them the product, or even Described it to them…i’m sure someone smart probably said hey, why don’t we just make our own! sorry to hear man, life’s a bitch in so many ways these days…keep your head up though, cuz it’s never what you do, but How you do it…surely there’s enough market for you to still have your chunk out there, where there’s a will there’s a way =]

That does not seem like imitation even. I sometimes use a blanket or moving pad when I load something in the SUV. I don’t know who I am imitating, if anyone. The choice of material maybe.

Lee Valley will soon loose interest in their product. You can make yours whatever you want it to be. Do you market yours through your local lumber yard? If you can buy one when you need it, like when you’re leaving with the sheet goods and it’s looking like rain, you may be more inclined to add it to the bill. Who thinks ahead anyway?

Best,

-- Jim

I think you are right on with your comment. Lloyd wish you the best with your business but the idea isn’t that unique and identifiable that people would look for your name brand. I think if the market exists for a product like yours, everybody and their mom is going to come out with their own version of the pouch.

My point is yours is a good idea but don’t take it too hard because if they really wanted to steal it from you they would have already done that and several people at that.

Mr Kerry -

Your comments are innaccurate – and slanderous. I look forward to your prompt apology in this thread, the other thread, and on your blog…. and any other place you have printed your accusations. This has been a standard item for us (and other firms) for the past three years.

Sincerely -

Robin Lee
President
Lee Valley Tools Ltd.

I see them as two separate applications…one is a liner for an enclosed area. The other a bag for an uncovered bed.

Don’t be shocked when Harbor Freight starts selling your bag for half the cost imported from China.
Every market deals with this these days. I fly RC airplanes and we use LiPo batteries. They can volatile at times resulting is lots of flames. Chemical fires are nasty. A guy came up with the idea to make a fire resistance pouch with industrial strength Velcro on the flap. The videos show these bags containing everything except the smoke. Not long after his videos were posted…the Chinese distributors started shipping cheap knock offs.

Sucks…but happens.

I have a similar cargo liner like LV’s since 2006. I also have a couple of tarps I got from costco – also silver poly. I don’t see whats the fuss about. different products, similar material.

fwiw, i just bought a cargo mat for our New Mazda from the dealer that is custom fitted for floor the area.
I sure they did not consult with anyone in order to make this option . I would not be surprised if there is an OEM model out there to retrofit most SUV’s etc.
Not really a patentable product in my opinion.

Lloyd, what in the world is the matter with you? The only similarity between these two products is the colour. You are making yourself look like a fool! Give it up!

Well, wooden, if you read the other posts, and I assuming you have, you would have seen that I apologized to Mr. Lee of Lee Valley Tools. And if you didn’t have all the facts, there’s nothing I can do about that.
