    I've seen and held a Chinese knock-off. It's when I was working the 303 Booth at Meccum Auctions.

    Come Meet Mike Phillips at the 303 Booth at the Mecum Auction in Kissimmee, Florida! Friday, January 10th and Saturday, January 11th



    I took a picture of it and sent it to FLEX. Not sure what happened after that?

    Interesting! I was in their Glendale, AZ booth and did not catch it...... I was busy signing up for a Kendall bucket and buying a vacuum attachment.

    Hard to aggressively enforce patents and not go broke. Years ago I represented a line of foldup hand carts that was a division of a large corporation. They had a quality product and aggressively enforced their patent on copy after copy that "washed" ashore at cheaper and cheaper prices. One day the fax came...... litigation was killing them, the "mother ship" said enough.
    The worst case I experienced was, a manufacturer I sold for, worked with a supplier for two years developing a new product only to have them sell it "out the backdoor" to our biggest competitor...... before we got it!!!

    Kinda like when Callaway golf had a clone club hit the market the day before they launched it!
