They appreciate quality craftsmanship and American made products which led them to found Metals Unlimited, LLC in 2014 – CustomBootJack’s parent company. After success in custom metal sign manufacturing, Blaine and Philip enrolled in the MBA program at Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business. During this time, they developed a new product line and launched Custom Bootjacks. Since its inception, Custom Bootjacks has sold hundreds of bootjacks across the country.
What’s a bootjack and why do I need one?
We’ve all been in those uncomfortable and awkward positions, hopping around on one foot, trying to get out of your boots or even having your loved one yank at your heel while you lay on the floor. It’s no fun and you can hurt yourself. A bootjack fixes all of those problems. Simply slide your heel into the gap, put your other heel on the jack and lift your knee. Our bootjacks are cut from thick steel using a CNC laser, then wire-brushed clean and powder-coated clear for all-weather protection. The horns are hand-wrapped with soft leather to protect your boots and floors for worry-free use. Customers can customize the bootjack with initials, brands or company logos or choose from one of our standard in-house designs. We set the standard for the ultimate boot removing tool.
