The goal of this project was to design a way to organize and deploy filmmaking gear, through a system of universal attachments.
Here you can see the resulting design of a clip and rail system. The clip engages the rail with a hook and a tongue. This tongue is protected by the rigid extended guard around it, the tongue deflects and snaps into place. Most of the weight is supported by the hook and those guards, not really the tongue, giving it a longer life. The advantage here is the clip is made in one piece, unlike similar products on the market that have multiple parts with screws and pins.
These attachments with their corresponding gear could be migrated between various rails; rails that would be mounted on walls for gear organization, gear boxes for transportation, carts during field use, car boots for storage, etc.
