About this project

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for checking out my project. I'm happy to share with you HotFingers! HotFingers is a handy backpacking accessory to store all of your small camping items in one convenient place. It also transforms into a camping pot holder so you'll never have to worry about burning your hands or dropping your food. Check out my video to see Hotfingers in action.

You're able to store everything from multi-tools and flashlights to spices and band aids. HotFingers fits on the bottom of standard 8oz and 16oz iso/propane canisters, sealing off the concave space underneath and creating a convenient storage place.

HotFingers then transforms into a convenient and comfortable hot pot holder. You don't have to worry about handling your hot cookware, and there's no need to carry an additional tool for the job.

I have already designed and produced several working prototypes and now it's time for the real deal. The plan is to release HotFingers in three fantastic colors: orange, green, and grey.

How HotFingers was Born.

As an outdoor-products designer it's no stretch to imagine I'm always coming up with little ways to make the experience easier and more convenient. After spending so much time looking for all my small items camping it was time for a change. 

One item I always have with me on trips is my stove and its fuel canister. It hit me! Now I not only have a place to store my numerous small camping essentials, but I always know where they are and can access them easily. 

How to Use HotFingers.

Just pop it on the bottom of your fuel canister, add your small camping items, and get outside. Slip it on your hand to hold or carry hot cookware, and stay worry-free. 

Your Support.

I would really appreciate your support so we can have production tooling made and bring HotFingers to everyone. I want people to share in the convenience HotFingers can bring to the outdoor adventure so they can focus on the journey instead of all the little things.

Rewards. 

Check them out and hopefully with your support Ill be able to send you a HotFingers soon!

Risks and challenges

As an industrial designer I have experience working with manufacturers. I've already designed and prototyped HotFingers utilizing the newest 3D Printers and now it's time for the real deal. I have already lined up a company that specializes in high temperature silicone and with your support we can get started on the production tooling. I'm ready to pull the trigger and get this ball rolling. I'm confident you'll soon be taking HotFingers on your next adventure.
