Are there SwingFrame knockoffs in the marketplace?
A few attempts have been made to duplicate the SwingFrame System or create a similar swing-open frame and display system. We have not seen any exact knockoffs but have come across other systems that tried to imitate the SwingFrame design. There is no real comparison to the original SwingFrame and a noticeable difference in the quality and function.
How can I tell if it’s an Authentic SwingFrame?
The SwingFrame design is a two part system with a front and a back attached together with our custom
designed hinges and Gravity Lock.
SwingFrame’s original design used steel latches to keep the front frame door closed. This snap method of closure has been replaced with a recently patented gravity lock. Many of these original SwingFrames; poster frames, sign holders, shadow boxes, floor stands, display frames and cases are still being used today - after 15 years!
If a swing-open display offered does not have a Gravity Lock or Side Plunge Lock it is not an Authentic SwingFrame!
SwingFrame’s patented display system comprises of the following:
- Hinges and Gravity Lock are located behind the front frame.
- The Gravity Lock slides up to release and open the front frame and slides down to lock behind a stopper and
secure the front frame door.
- The back part is made with laminated solid wood sides.
- Wood Z-bar and hanging Brackets are mounted to the back structure for easy wall mounting.
