About

What is uBond?

uBond is a unique dual-purpose smartphone stand and grip that offers much needed ergonomic benefits for smartphone users.

How does it work?  

uBond uses micro-suction cups which when attached to a phone provides a stable grip allowing you to relax your holding hand. 

Easily attach & detach.

It can also be converted into a stand effortlessly:

  Your phone can now be positioned at any desirable orientation.

Now you can relax and use your phone without holding it.

Wait! Why do I need another stand/grip?

Gripping a phone tightly for a prolonged period of time excessively burdens muscles. uBond is specifically invented to address this particular problem.

If you haven't heard terms like "Smartphone Pinky," "Text Claw," and "Cubital Tunnel Syndrome," perhaps it's time to do some reading on "repetitive strain injury."

uBond relieves some of this mechanical stress by providing a relaxed tension-free grasp, therefore alleviating the fatigue involved in holding a cell-phone.

Bonus: uBond can also help prevent your phone from slipping out of your hand. 

While being small enough to fit into your shirt pocket!

Why is uBond the winner?

Existing adhesive-based grips will not only ruin the beauty of your phone, but will also leave adhesive residue on your phone once it is removed. These types of grips also are hard to detach from the phone and have a very sticky surface. uBond only uses suction force and does not leave any residue. 

PATENT PENDING
PATENT PENDING

Patent pending.

We have filed US and International patent applications for uBond.

Top quality material and craftsmanship.

Each uBond will be made of durable Zinc Alloy and precision CNC machined after die casting. Each piece will also be hand buffed, glass beads blasted, and nickel electroplated to render a timeless surface texture. 

Multiple color options. 

These are the colors of uBond's silicone grips:

Help Out By Sharing uBond With Your Friends! (#uBond)  

Like uBond? Great! The more people who know about uBond, the more people will benefit from uBond! Please help us spread the good news!

 Why do we need your support?

After arduous effort, we've arrived at the final design of uBond. In order to introduce uBond to the world, we need to place a substantial minimum order for the first production run. That's why we're offering uBond to you before anyone else. Your pledge will help pay for the startup costs associated with manufacturing the die-casting molds, injection molds and the initial production run. It will also help us protect the intellectual property of uBond.

Dear International Backers:

Please note that we could not charge any additional amount on our end for any applicable VAT/duties that may occur due to your country's local tax code. Therefore, these fees may be incurred upon receipt of your reward. These fees are the responsibility of each backer.

Usage Instructions

1. Micro-suction cups can only be attached to a flat, smooth surface material such as glass, metal, silicone or plastic. 

2. Micro-suction cups are designed to prevent your phone from sliding. It is not meant to carry the full weight of the phone and will detach after a while (depending on the weight of your phone) if you keep the device upside down.

3. In order to maintain proper suction power, the micro-suction cups need to be cleaned with a wet tissue periodically to prevent dust accumulation. 

4. ALWAYS slip your fingers into the silicone grip first before attaching uBond to your phone (as shown in the video.)

5. For big size phones (such as iPhone 8 Plus), we do not recommend portrait orientation when using uBond as a stand.

Risks and challenges

Although we have completed testing our prototypes, finalized our designs, and sourced potential suppliers in China, we may need to source additional suppliers to meet increased demand. This could delay shipping.
