Our story

One day more than eight years ago, Gary Bryant’s wife lost an earring on their gravel drive, despite frantic searching, sadly it was never seen again.

This small disaster set Gary thinking. His background is engineering with 14 years in medical engineering, working on life support equipment in hospitals. He couldn’t believe there wasn’t a better solution to conventional earring backs, given how easily and frequently they fail. So in a shed in his garden he started making prototypes.

Three years later he found the solution, and made what he believes to be the world’s best earring back. Since then, his amazing invention has been patented and has several patent pending improvements. It’s been scientifically tested for the equivalent of 50 years of daily use without failing – Lox back can actually lift a house brick. Gary insisted that its plastic part is hypoallergenic and biocompatible. The stainless steel element was also tested for nickel release at the Birmingham Assay Office. The results were negative – another milestone passed.

After eight years of work Gary’s invention came to market. Since then it has already sold over 80,000 pairs to delighted women (See our Testimonials) and appeared at the Clothes Show at Birmingham’s NEC.

Great investment. I bought these after I lost a fairly expensive earring when the back of it fell off in the middle of the day. These earring backs have been amazing – they work exactly as intended and I have peace of mind that I won’t lose another pair of nice earrings the same way.

I would recommend these to everyone they’re fantastic value for money and now that I’ve tried them I won’t use any other type of backing again. In a word: Perfect.

Good product, does as it says. Swift despatch, packaged well. Would recommend these brilliant earring backs – prevents lost earrings and sore ears as they hold in place safely and firmly but do not have to be so tight to your ear that ear gets sore.

Good service too. Heard about these on TV shopping channel. They’d sold out so searched Amazon of course! Have lost a couple of pearl studs at different times in the past and recently had a problem with the backs of quite heavy drop earrings. These solved the problem. Great invention!
