Industrial designers Alan Harrison and Ben Millett, along with logistics manager Michael Culleton, comprise a Dublin-based product brand called Stayhold. Their eponymous product, which we looked at here, is nuts-and-bolts ID: Just a simple object for preventing cargo from sliding around in your trunk.
