Trackitback Partners With Egrips® Appliques to Create a Loss Recovery ID Label With Grip

Trackitback Powered by Egrips® Technology Provides Gripping Power and Loss Protection for Portable Electronic Devices

WINNIPEG, MB -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2006 -- Trackitback, North America's leading lost and found recovery service provider, and egrips® appliqués, makers of unique gripping appliqués that prevent devices from sliding on dry surfaces, have partnered to create the Trackitback appliqué powered by egrips® Technology. This one of a kind product will have a dual function -- providing a mobile device with gripping power that will also offer Trackitback's unparalleled lost and found recovery service.

The egrips® appliqués are designed to prevent portable electronic devices such as cell phones, PDAs, satellite radios and MP3 players from sliding on dry surfaces like car dashes, counter tops, desktops and laptops. In addition to the powerful gripping technology, the Trackitback appliqué powered by egrips® material maintains a low profile to allow for versatility in tight applications.

"We are thrilled to be adding the unique egrips® technology to our successful line of loss protection ID labels," says Jason Wagner, president of Trackitback. "With this new application, consumers have the assurance of knowing their device will grip on dry surfaces and be protected from loss. This partnership makes portable electronic devices twice as secure."

The Trackitback appliqué powered by egrips® Technology offers a distinct and tangible difference for those shopping for a complete loss protection solution."

    device and register the unique ID code through Trackitback's website --

    call the toll free number provided on the Trackitback label (they may use
