About Me


Hello my name is Pat and I created BASTENS back in 2008 and I am located in Minnesota USA. I provide unique high quality items I have invented to offer directly to you. With my forward-looking vision, engineering expertise, and creativity I have turned my day to day inventions into a family business.

With inspiration of every day family life I offer my gadgets and widgets to you. Thanks to orders from people like you I have now brought BASTENS to the small business level, in 2017 I filled 5,000 orders!

I pride myself on my past 10+ years experience selling online through  Amazon.com (including Amazon.ca, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.es) along with Walmart.com, eBay.com, NewEgg.com, Sears.com, Buy.com and Rakuten.com. I got my start creating products though Gomadic which I co-founded back in 2003. At Gomadic my creations like the ComCube and TipExchange gave Gomadic the competitive edge. After a successful 12 years in 2015 I sold my ownership of Gomadic to dedicated more of my time to my family ... but I couldn't stop inventing ;-)

What do our customers say about BASTENS? During 2016 on Amazon.com 203 customers took the time to leave me customer service feedback using Amazon's impartial third party feedback system. I am happy to report *ALL* reviews left in 2016 were ★★★★★ (5/5) Star ratings!
