Boss Products USA, LLC was founded in the early 1990’s by native Australian Len Kelsey. The MagneFine In-Line Magnetic Filter for Automatic Transmissions was Len’s flagship product until early 2008 when he founded and began selling the first of the RapidFix line of products in the U.S. and internationally. The Dual Adhesive System quickly grew in popularity. The RapidFix line was expanded to include the UV Adhesive and the UV Fiber Patch. In 2017, the assets of Boss Products USA and the RapidFix product line were purchased by Lighthouse for the Blind, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation headquartered in St. Louis, MO.
The Lighthouse for the Blind

Today, the Lighthouse helps children and adults who are visually impaired maintain dignity and independence by offering employment, education, and support services to the blind community. The Lighthouse currently employs 48 people who are legally blind in two assembly and packaging plants in St. Louis County.
