As well as illustrating I'm one half of a company called Factoryroad, who come from a background of pirate radio, music and art, and have long collected these curious and somehow never-out-of-favour iconic plastic shapes.
They’re odd, but they’re a shape strangely recognised the world over, by all ages.
Currently available in 8 colours, with 8 more due this autumn:
Red / blue / yellow / green / white / black / silver / pink
After months of meeting demand for these little record adapters by supplying boring yellow ones - the only ones we could find, new ‘old’ stock imported from the US - we decided to make our own.
Years of work later, these things are sturdier, re-designed, refined, with better grip, superior material and produced in a range of colours. In fact, we can make them in virtually any colour, right here in the UK.
"Thanks for redesigning and continuing to manufacture such an essential piece of vinyl culture!!! I can not thank you guys enough for saving me from those crappy little yellow pieces of plastic I have been using up till now."
- Hasan Sidiq, California
Designed and made in England, these things have been a big part of my life for many years!
