The clipiT range saves time and money while ensuring all connections and related cables are in place when needed.

The perfect example of functional design and fabrication to overcome missing or lost cables and protects against accidental pulled leads and damage to wires and connections.

Initially designed for the education sector, where the client needed to reduce downtime and the costs associated with constantly replacing leads and cables in AV wall plates situations, the ClipiT isn’t limited to AV and can be an addition to any electrical sockets.

The ClipiT products are currently available as UK 1 and 2 gang versions (Bespoke sizes can be manufactured). The removable ClipiT bar is secured with M3 screws, allowing cables to be replaced quickly and easily if a failure occurs, securing them in place and avoiding their disappearance.

A cost-effective solution.

They are perfect for protecting leads and ensuring uptime while reducing the costs for replacement leads, whatever type of business or facility you have. Great addition as part of an AV installation or used for other sockets where cables or leads are required.

Retrofit or at point of installation.

If you are looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to protect equipment and reduce the nuisance of missing or lost leads, then ask your AV or Electrical supplier and installer to use ClipiT from AV Plates when specifying your project, or upgrade to ClipiT and have them retrofitted to any existing installations

Lunch and Learn

Lunch and learn is our way of bringing the exhibition to you.

Lunch & Learn is a personalised event we bring to your premises for your sales, technical and purchasing teams during lunchtime or a pre-arranged time to suit you. Choose an invite-only for specific team members or a drop-in for all of your staff. As always, we can make it bespoke to suit you.

Your teams will be able to see first-hand how you can offer bespoke custom-designed, fabricated and manufactured solutions for your current and potential customers' other requirements that they cannot readily find in the marketplace.

And of course, the extensive range of quality branded connected custom AV Wall, Desk, Floor and Rack-mounted plates, that AVPLATES is well known for manufacturing and supplying.

Bespoke AV connectivity plates.

Enabling your teams to offer bespoke, custom and branded plates to match your client's wish lists with the knowledge, understanding and ability to provide a solution while with the client. Having the confidence to say "yes, we can offer the perfect solution" to any questions regarding AV plate connectivity will enhance your teams' opportunities to sell.

Bespoke, custom, design, fabrication, and manufacturing solutions that are not readily available in the marketplace.

How can this help you?

As you are saying your "see you next time goodbyes", the customer asks:

"Could you provide some protection for the large speakers in the GYM? Unfortunately, we can't find a suitable solution that will work. Do you know anyone?"

"We need a solution to stack a large number of Sky boxes safely and securely on a Yacht. But, unfortunately, we can't find quite what we need. Can you do that?"

Or another request that appears to be unrelated to your typical AV installation or a product you can provide.

Can you be the one that says YES, the one that provides a solution to their perceived unsolvable problems, be their go-to person? Can you add more value to your offering and increase the sale?

So customer will not need to go to another provider or search to solve their problems elsewhere.

See the below link to some case studies where we have provided the complete solution for bespoke designed and manufactured products.

Lunch & Learn will help you say yes.

As designers and manufacturers, AV plates have and can provide bespoke fabrications that solve your customer's problems, giving them what they believe they cannot obtain. So why wait until they ask? Instead, learn how you can offer that service, that you are a solutions provider and the right person to do business with.

Your monthly sales meetings or quarterly event is a perfect opportunity for a pre-arranged Lunch & Learn, or any day of the week that you wish, at lunchtime or any other time—no need to wait for events to be open. Arrange your own. We are sure you will find it beneficial.

And there's more...
We will buy lunch!!

Sandwiches or Pizza
You choose what you want on your plate!
