What is Yono Clip?
The Yono Clip is your ultimate solution for keeping your possessions off the ground and free of germs. If you’ve ever cringed after setting your bag down on a dirty restroom floor, then the Yono Clip is for you.
Yono stands for “you only need one” and with this product, that’s completely true.
The clip, which is available in various colors, utilizes a DURAFLEX® suction cup to adhere to nearly any surface. The clip features a durable hook for your bags and jackets that can hold up to 15 pounds.
Who Owns Yono Clip?
Today, Yono Clip inventors Michael Green and Bob Mackey are still going strong. Before their Shark Tank appearance, Mackey worked as the CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central Georgia.
Green, on the other hand, was known for giving science presentations at various locations.
According to his Linkedin profile, Green is still an active entrepreneur and currently works as the president of a company called Science is for Everyone.
Mackey originally got the idea for Yono Clip when he tripped over someone’s bag at the gym. Armed with some paper towel and a pencil, Mackey started sketching plans for the Yono Clip right away.
Later, when Mackey shared his idea for a portable clip online, he caught the attention of Green. Along the way, Mackey and Green ran into some issues when multiple engineering companies told them the design would never work.
So, the pair opted to 3D print the Yono Clips instead. Mackey and Green quickly filled out a Shark Tank application and the rest, as they say, is history.
