LockerBones is a customizable shelving system designed specifically to organize school lockers. Greg Cronin of Clinton, Mississippi came up with the prototype for his teenage daughter Ashley. Cronin and business partner Steve Coachys pitched LockerBones on Shark Tank in 2014. They went into the Tank seeking $175,000 in exchange for 10 percent equity. They accepted Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec’s offer of $175k for 50 percent.
Three days after the LockerBones Shark Tank episode aired, Cronin says he was contacted by Staples, and invited to participate in their popular Back to School program. “While Shark Tank was a great success for us, Staples has moved us along faster and further than the sharks would ever have time to do,” said Cronin. However since 2014, LockerBones hasn’t been active online, and the product is no longer available on the Staples website. But it is available on Amazon (see link above) and on the company website.
