Inspiration & Idea


Exposed components (shunt, battery terminals, breakers, etc.) in our campervan make us feel a bit uncomfortable due to the risk of short circuit. Before installing the electrical system in our new van conversion, we are slowly working on designing and making enclosures and covers for the components we plan to use:

It’s still a work in progress at the time of writing these lines, but we’ll add more to our Store as we go… Here is what we have so far:


ABOUT THIS PRODUCT


Do It Yourself.

We couldn’t find a way to protect a shunt, so we made one.

This is an homemade product.

Each enclosure/cover is individually 3D printed, takes about an hour to complete, and requires manual labor. This is not a mass-produced product. This is a crafted, hand-made product.

Low Volume.

We created this product for our own needs, to make just a few units. There is no way for us to ramp up the production and lower the price, unless we take it to injection molding manufacturing but that’s a whole another level we’re not considering at the moment.
