RINGWOOD, IL – July 20, 2021
Race Sport Lighting is pleased to announce that the USPTO office has issued a second continuation patent (Patent No. 11,054,127) on their innovative GEN4® LED design. The GEN4® was first launched at the SEMA Show in November of 2019 and was in instantly embraced by the marketplace just a month after applying for the first patent. That patent (Patent No. 10,801,714) was issued in October of 2020.
The GEN4® patented lighting system features a 360° ratchet-style adjustable base for aiming, an anti-glare optical beam deflector and a rotatable heat-sink rope for heat dissipation in tight lens/cover locations.
Retailers and installers were supporting the product at a rapid pace until the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States in March of 2020. At that time, the contract factory making GEN4® exclusively for Race Sport took a huge hit from the pandemic and had to close its doors.
We have been working hard over the last year to move the tooling over to their main factory and make some small adjustments to the design before relaunching. Those adjustments were captured in a continuation patent application that has evolved into the recent patent issued by the USPTO.
“We are very anxious to relaunch the GEN4® LED system to the marketplace with a few upgraded adjustments that will increase the performances even more. It was disappointing that we had to switch the tooling to another factory in the middle of the pandemic, but we are still receiving a high demand weekly for this patented high-performance system to relaunch into the marketplace. We are doing everything possible to keep our relaunch target around SEMA Show 2021, just in time to kick off the new year with some major excitement. We are thankful to the USPTO for awarding us a second patent and recognizing a lot of hard work put into this kit.” – Steve Jergensen, President of Race Sport Lighting
Orders are building up as distributors and dealers nationwide have requested to keep orders open in anticipation for the relaunch.
