Variety is great… too much variety is limiting.

** UPDATE ** I’m excited to say that both the Mall Rat Sled and the Louse Lips Tray have proven to be enough of a success that they are now available in the following colors:  Orange, Green, Blue, Black, and Pink.  Thanks to all of you who have made these products a success. All are now available here: ** /UPDATE ** I’ve been asked a few times now why the products I’ve released to date have been available in only one color, pink.  The reasoning is grounded in the spirit and goals of 47 Products, LLC, so I figured I’d answer it here and point to if each time I’m asked. Let’s first start with what 47 Products, LLC is and what it is not.  While we do manufacture exciting new products, it is not our goal to be the long-term manufacture of these products.  We leverage the FFF manufacturing method to quickly bring products to market; though it is fantastic for many needs, it is not necessarily the best method of manufacturing most products.  Using FFF we feel we are able to create a great product (we would not release them to the public if we didn’t), but there… Read More

What is 47 Products, LLC.

To be honest with you, I’m still trying to figure out what 47 Products, LLC is going to be.  In the spirit of the name (story here), this company grew out of embracing the unexpected.  It all started on a cool evening, sitting on the back porch, whiskey in my hand, and thoughts rolling around in my mind… I’d just recently taken up precision 22lr shooting and was going to be testing some different ammunition in my Ruger American Rimfire to see which grouped best. I’d done this before with my Ruger 10/22, but it was a pain reloading the magazine time and time again.  I wished that there was a way to just have a single shot loading tray, like my daughter’s Savage Rascal rifle. This wasn’t the first time I’d wished for such a product. I’d searched many times and I just kept coming to the same conclusion, “Somebody ought to make that!” Well, that evening it finally hit me… I’m that somebody! After months of design and many, many failures, I have succeeded in designing two solutions. The first product I finished is the Louse Lips Feeding Tray. To use this device you simply remove the feeding… Read More

What’s in a name?

47 started as an inside joke…  So many things in life are predictable, they come in simple steps you can count on.  Well, starting in late summer of 2016, my life changed. While jokingly talking to one of the sources of this unpredictability, I mentioned that my life used to be 1 2 3, but now it’s 1 2 and then something, sometimes that something is even me, comes swinging in on a rope yelling 47! 47, to me, is an attitude now.  It’s the expectation of the unexpected.  It’s figuring out how to embrace that twist and find out how to make something fantastic from it… and forming a corporation built around bringing some exciting new products to the market, well that’s a great example of one of those 47 moments. So, 47 Products has nothing to do with a count, it has everything to do with a spirit that I hope you will find in everything we produce.
