About

here we are. go customize your key chain. be a urban city ninja. 

Known from sites like:

Designed for function. If you ever tried to watch a movie on your phone you have probably felt frustration. Trying to place it on a cup, your wallet or a corner can be really difficult. Most stands are made out of cheap materials and are not designed to last very long. Often they look funny but they are not functional. It seems like is has never been thought of the functional aspects of the products.

That's why we designed the TiStand. The TiStand is simple to use and easy to carry around. The titanium ensures maximum durability. The quick snap also guarantees a fast access whenever you need it. 

Simplicity for longevity The TiStand is made out of one piece of titanium. This unibody design guarantees maximum strength and makes it even more enjoyable. The TiStand also ensures to last a life time. We don't want to be a part of a wasteful society. We choose titanium for longevity.

100% made in Germany. We also asked ourselves where we are going to produce the product. Asia is probably a way cheaper option than Germany. But we are concerned about the work conditions and enviromental problems. The decision was simple for us. We are proud to announce a carabiner which is 100% made in Germany.

Remarkably attention to quality The TiStand is completely CNC manufactured. The combination of observation and CNC controlled laser cutting makes the TiStand such a unique everyday stand.

Sizes. You can choose between three different sizes. And three different colors.

TiStand small for example iPhone or other phone that has a profile less than 10mm. TiStand medium for example iPad mini or any other tablet that has a profile less than 9,7" or 10mm thick. TiStand large for example iPad or any other tablet that has a profile less than 11" and bigger than 10mm. All TiStands can function as a bottle opener.

The TiStand small works with any smart phone that has a profile less than 10mm, and we also have a special edition for your iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 4/4s HTC one // Google Nexus 5 // Samsung Galaxy S4 // Sony Xperia Z // HTC One Mini // Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and many others . You can choose between black // silver // gold

The TiStand large is the biggest stand. But still small enough to fit perfectly on your keychain without even noticing it. You can choose between black // silver // gold

From an idea to titanium grade II. After the Idea was born we have build a couple of prototypes made out of wood and PLA with a small laser cutter. After we found the right shape we tried to find a material which was light and allowed the quick snap mechanism and of course lasted long. We tried several materials and alloys. Long story short, Titanium Grade II was just perfect.

It is just perfect. Titanium is more than just a material. It is one of the materials which is used within the medicine industry, a lot of light gear and even on the Mars rover. You may know that titanium will last longer than your keychain, and probably longer than you do.

Titanium is highly corrosion resistant. 200 times more expensive than crude steel. It resists sulfuric acid, hydrochloric and nearly any other acid. The laser wich is used to cut the titanium has a temperature above 7500°F

What will happen after we reach the goal of £5,000? After we reach the goal, we are going to make some changes on the TiStand. Pretty small changes but before we start shipping we want the bottle opener to work even smoother. After the printed TiStand works perfectly we are going to order another run of prototypes. If this works just like we expect it, we are going to order a huge plate of titanium, which a company in South Germany will provide us with. This company will also prepare the titanium for the laser cut (brushing and polishing)

The money raised will help us to complete the last prototypes and send you a perfectly working TiStand. After the TiStands have been produced, the edges are pretty sharp. Hence a couple more steps are involved. We still have to brush each TiStand and afterwards polish and stain the surfaces. The final step is to anodize the TiStands. Colours you can choose from include black, gold and silver. This will happen in South Germany as well. We already ordered a couple of prototypes but at the moment we have to wait up to 4 weeks to get a 4,5g small stand anodized. This is because it is not very economical to fill a huge tank to anodize a small piece of titanium.

So if you you place a pledge, you will get a perfectly working TiStand. 

Schedule

Risks and challenges

To minimise the risk of failing we already approached a company not far from our hometown in Germany which agreed to help us manufacturing this product. We already had a few conversations via mail and phone. The price is save, We only have to place a big order to guarantee the price. We also ordered a couple prototypes so we already know what we will get. But right now the price is extremely high because is is not economicle to anodise a small piece of titanium like the TiStand. But this will change after we placed a big order.
