TedTec was built off the passion for developing the sailing community through innovation and technology. The idea of the need for a low-profile soft attachment came about when founder, Andrew York was sailing VX Ones that had a range of stainless steel saddle attachment points on the cockpit. These are painful to stand on, even in boots, and if you fall on them it can be excruciating. He set out to design the most innovative, light, strong, and effective fittings for all manner of use.


Our Why

We are inspired to create the most innovative, light, strong, and effective fittings for all manner of uses. If you want the cleanest and most functional set up on your boat TedTec have the products for you.

    Andrew (CEO) built a sports boat (Reo 7.2 m) and installed soft fixings through the cockpit floor before it was laminated to the hull. While this worked well, it was not viable for boat building. So the seed of an idea to make a soft attachment fitting to solve this problem was planted.

    Andrew purchased a button head socket screw. He then drilled a hole through the middle through which he fixed a Dyneema line with a knot in the end. This showed good strength during testing. Andrew then drew a plastic prototype. This was CNCed up to his design.

    The testing of these prototypes was successful and the order was sent to do a production run of the Ropescrews.

    REO 7.7m One Design Sportsboat uses approx 50 Acetal and Titanium Ropescrews throughout the fit-out.

    Mat Belcher and Will Ryan used 45 Ropescrews on their Olympic Gold Medal winning 470. After the games the two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Mat Belcher joins TedTec to further spread the awareness to the sailing community.
