Eclips launches Eclips FLIP, a new generation of flip-up, clip-on, polarized sunwear constructed of high-quality stainless steel. The precision-geared chassis can be adjusted to three stages: 60 degrees, 120 degrees and 180 degrees. It can be assembled in five simple steps in as little as 30 minutes, fits most standard metal and plastic frames, and accommodates a wide variety of Rx lenses. The chassis are offered in three sizes and five popular colors—black, gold, gunmetal, rust and silver. Lenses come in brown, gray, G15 and vermilion.
“Eclips FLIP is a high-quality, custom-made, clip-on sunglass that flips up at three different angles,” says David Salk, Eclips CEO. “It is engineered with a gearing system that will not wear out. Eclips FLIP can be made for most (90+ percent) frame styles. It’s great for people who drive to work each day and go through tunnels or simply want a clip they don’t have to remove when they go inside to shop or pick up a cup of coffee before getting back on the road.”
A finished FLIP clip comes with a polarized lens and case. An assembly kit consisting of pliers, pin vise, drill bits, rivets and instructional CD is available.
