The Grypmat – The World’s Most Versatile Tool Mat


Organize and Revolutionize how you Work with Tools

Columbus, OH December 29, 2016 - Grypshon Industries, a veteran owned start-up based in Ohio, have just launched the Grypmat – a high performance, non-magnetic, non slip, chemical resistant, anti-static rubber tool mat keeping tools and hardware in place, no matter where you need to put them. Thanks to the Grypmat, tool users can focus on their work without having to worry about runaway screws or misplaced hardware.

Due to its unique polymer-silicone blend,the Grypmat’s insane grip can hold tools at extreme angles (up to 70 degrees) on a variety of work surfaces, making it the ultimate companion for working on engines, cars, and planes  – simply anywhere tools are used. The Grypmat is resistant to all types of chemicals, and if it gets gunked up with grease, dust or any dirt, wiping it with a damp cloth will make it as good as new. Grypmat’s versatility and ease of use makes it an essential tool for trade professionals, mechanics, tinkerers, gadget junkies and DIYers alike. With Grypmat, users can get the job done without ever having to chase a runaway screw again.

To suit a wide range of needs, the bright orange Grypmat is available in three sizes: large, medium and small. The small Grypmat consists of six compartments that keep hardware organised and within an arm’s reach. The medium is designed to help keep hand tools together in close proximity, and the large Grypmat is designed for more advanced jobs with larger tools.

“Working as a mechanic in the United States Air Force, I grew increasingly tired of not having my tools within easy reach when working on top of the aircraft – tool loss and missing hardware was a constant problem, and I nearly fell off the plane chasing a sliding tool! I invented the Grypmat to prevent these issues, and to make it truly easy to keep tools and hardware within comfortable reach – so you can just focus on the work in front of you,” says founder Tom Burden.

Grypshon Industries was founded in 2013 by Tom Burden, an F-16 mechanic in the United States Air Force. In late 2013, Burden showcased the Grypmat to the judges at the Toledo Startup Weekend and won first prize. Having spent over two years prototyping and testing, the Grypmat has received exceptionally positive feedback from mechanics and tool users – and is now ready for large scale production.
