Being a hockey fan for several years, I had
collected pucks from both major and minor league teams, traveling to
arenas from Anchorage, Alaska to Belfast, Northern Ireland. At
first I just sat them on a shelf in my office, then I mounted them
on the wall with the use of large screws...
Since I didn't care for the real estate the
pucks took up sitting on my shelf, and the appearance of screws was
unattractive I soon found myself searching the internet for a way to
properly mount them on my wall. All I could find were
expensive frames for single pucks and even more expensive frames
that held thirty pucks and thought to myself "there's got to be a
I sat down with pencil and paper and designed the Puckcup. My
first prototype was made from cardboard and tape but it served its
purpose and showed me my designs were on the right track. I
then refined my drawings, had AutoCAD files produced, which were
then used to manufacture my first prototype. While the first
prototype was good, I knew improvements had to be made. So it
was back to the drawing board for more corrections and more
prototypes. Once I had a prototype to my liking I started
showing it to family, friends, hockey fans, arena employees,
strangers, and anyone else that would shoot down my idea and tell me
not to waste my time and efforts. But it was through their
support, suggestions and encouragement that I proceeded on my way
and began production.
you see today is the results of those efforts. A hockey puck
holder that is both inexpensive and effective.
The small footprint and use of black ABS plastic make the Puckcup
virtually invisible when displaying a puck.
So enjoy the freedom to display your pucks,
