Jon Batarse and his 8-year-old son Gavin and daughter Morgan presented Gavin’s company Glove Wrap on
With Glove Wrap, just drop a ball in the pocket and wrap it up! It’s super easy to use no matter your age. Glove Wrap was designed to make the most of your baseball and softball gloves, breaking them in and shaping them with ease, while forming the perfect pocket. Glove Wrap is super easy to use, no matter your age! Made for hockey goalie gloves too!
From driving over it to covering it with shaving cream and baking it, Gavin knew there had to be a better way, so he invented one!
Glove Wrap is basically an elastic band that is the exact width, shape, and thickness of a glove, allowing you to easily break in a baseball or softball glove while also forming a perfect pocket.
As Gaving demonstrated for the sharks, to use the product you just put a baseball in the glove, place the Glove Wrap around it, and wait for it to do its thing.
Lori Greiner asks him how he came up with this idea and Gavin shares that started when his dad bought him a new baseball glove.
They were going to break it in the old-fashioned way with rubber bands, but they didn’t have enough. Meanwhile, Gavin found a piece of rubber that his dad had left over from physical therapy and he wrapped it around his glove.
We’ve partnered with six companies to put together a Shark Tank Stocking Stuffer Box that’s worth $100! Here’s everything that’s in the box:
- Sheets Laundry Club Travel Packs x2
- Honey Bee Bars - 12 Pack
- Snactiv Finger Chopsticks
- FryAway Cooking Oil Solidifier
- Pizza Pack
- Nature’s Wild Berry Sampler Pack
His dad thought this was a great idea, so he looked online to see if there was a product like his. When he discovered that there wasn’t, he helped Gavin start the business.
Kevin O’Leary asks about sales, and Gavin says they’ve already sold over 1,000 Glove Wraps. Further, lifetime sales are $19,000.
Each glove wrap costs $3.99 landed to make. They retail for $19.99 and wholesale for $10.
The wraps are sold on Amazon, the company website, and at six mom-and-pop shops. They also recently met with Big 5 Sporting Goods and they want to sell Glove Wraps next to their gloves.
Barbara Corcoran wants to know what is different about this product compared to exercise bands. Jon says that although similar, they’ve made these to fit the exact specifications of gloves.
Mark Cuban says he can see the product in professional baseball clubs, especially as fan give-aways.
Kevin O’Leary half-jokes that if he does a deal with Gavin, he’ll actually have to quit school and work for the company full-time. Ultimately, he drops out.
Lori loves the product but feels that there are more sporty sharks that could be of better help. For this reason, she is out.
Meanwhile, Barbara is sure that an exercise band would work just as well. She drops out, but not before saying Mark would be the best shark for Gavin and his family.
Guest Shark Michael Rubin, Fanatics chairman and CEO, has all the right contacts that Gavin needs. He says he’ll make a deal, but only if Mark joins in.
Mark eventually agrees, and together they offer $50,000 for 22% equity, and Gavin quickly accepts the deal.
Will Michael and Mark make big things happen for this company? Keep reading our Glove Wrap update to find out!
