MATLACHA, Florida (August 26, 2014) – Lure-Guard, the revolutionary new safetydevice that keeps sharp treble hooks harmless while in transit or storage, has just been granted U.S. Patent Number D709,589 S and European Design Registration 001408397.
Lure-Guard snaps around the lure, hooks, and line without having to untie the lure, and it unsnaps quickly when you are ready to cast. The soft plastic won’t damage the fishing line or guides and the label removes cleanly, so you can see your lures in the tackle box or on the rods. Lure-Guard keeps fishing lines from getting tangled, it protects the upholstery in your car and boat and, most importantly, it keeps passengers and pets from getting hooked.
After a successful debut at ICAST, the world’s largest sport fishing trade show, the easy-to-use safety device, which retails for just $3.99, has taken the fishing world by storm. “The response to our first product has been so positive that we are already working on a larger version for deep sea fishing lures” said Norbert Zebny, inventor of the device and owner of Lure-Guard, LLC.

Unable to find a user-friendly solution, he got to work on designing Lure-Guard.
