Steven Plastics is the inventor of the original Untangler rotating tooth comb in 1996.
How Untangler was invented:
Ron Owen a technical designer engineer at Steven Plastics, developed the original rotating tooth comb for the love of pets. Ron noticed that his dog Wilson, would ‘flinch’ and pull away every time he tried to untangle its matted hair with a comb. After close observation, Ron noticed that pet hair was snagging on the fixed pin and pulling on the hair follicle causing his dog Wilson to groan and snarl.
Ron was driven to explore a new design that would allow comb pins to move freely in the spine resulting in less pulling force when combing through pet hair. After many prototypes, Ron successfully designed a honeycomb spine which allowed each pin to independently rotate 360 degrees while moving up and down. He discovered that this constant pin movement and rotation significantly reduced the pulling force on pet hair and skin and significantly reduced pain.
Ron patented his design and The Untangler® was born! Untangler rotating Tooth Combs and Rakes are manufactured and hand assembled at Steven Plastics Inc, Hoffman Estates, IL. USA.
Since 1996, Untangler® rotating tooth grooming tools have been sold in more than 15 Countries worldwide. Groomers, Breeders and Vets recommend Untangler® Products for less pet grooming pain.
Benefits of Untangler rotating teeth
1) Significantly reduces painful grooming: Rotating teeth is Key is reducing grooming pain. Stainless steel teeth continuously rotate 360 degrees while moving up/down to wiggle out matted hair and knots without pulling. Pin rotation prevents pet hair from wrapping and clinging to the pin which significantly reduces the pulling force on skin and reduces pain.
3) Cleans skin and massages: Silky smooth teeth, with tumbled smooth tips rub and massage the skin as the teeth rotate. Rotating pin action stimulates circulation, relaxes muscles, and increases natural oil production keeping keep skin and coats healthy.
4) Secure Binding: Pins are securely sonic welded keeping children safe from swallowing loose pins.
5) Tarnish Free: Pins are American made solid stainless-steel and never tarnish. Tools can be safely sterilized in cleaning solutions to prevent the spread of allergens
6) Made in USA with precision care in Hoffman Estates, Illinois with a veteran team of loyal employees. Untangler has sold globally for 16 years to millions of users.
