Shu-Lok Shoes, Part 2:

The Shu-Lok Fastener was manufactured by Talon, Inc., Shu-Lok Fastener Division, of Meadville, Pennsylvania, and a freelance inventor-mechanic named Clive B. Forrester originated the idea for the shoe fastener and brought it to Talon in 1948. It was not until 1955 that Forrester, retained by Talon for seven years, had improved his closure enough to go into production.
