The Dango Loop Hook and Wall Mount is a functional and modular hook system that adapts to all lifestyles. The Loop Hook can convert from a stationary houseware to a utility grapple that will hang on most ledges, rails and branches to keep your everyday carries off the ground and always in sight. In addition to being an accessory to your backpacks, bags, and garments, this product is also a key chain, bottle opener and essentially a tool that surprises you by giving you new ways of connecting to the hook.
In addition to our existing colors: raw tumbled aluminum, anodized jet black, anodized burnt orange & anodized peacock teal, we're now offering 2 new colors, crimson red & champagne gold as part of our stretch goals once we hit $15K.
It is important for us to keep things made in the USA, supporting local San Francisco Bay Area businesses and providing superior quality to our customers.
We have made several rounds of prototypes leading up to the design that we have settled on bringing to the market. Through progressive development, we have learned a lot and went through several changes to provide the best product possible. We designed a product to essentially help you out, not hold you down. We want you to be satisfied and pleased with our product. That is why the design and development process is so important to us.
To provide the best quality product, we strategically chose CNC machining for the manufacturing process of the Dango Loop Hook and Wall Mount. The most challenging part was balancing aesthetics and manufacturing costs to the look, function, experience and MSRP that we felt was most appropriate for this product. We have tried making prototypes and cheaper alternatives through laser cutting, water jet cutting and even thought about die-casting the Loop Hook, but these processes did not meet our quality standards. Although an expensive route to go, we felt that no other manufacturing process would give us the strength and precision for the Dango Loop Hook and Wall Mount that CNC machining would help us achieve.
We have done extensive research partnering with the best suppliers and machine shops in the business to keep production running smoothly. We have already conducted pre-production runs without issue and feel confident that we can start production immediately after the campaign ends. We are committed to providing quality product and meeting demand as needed. Our suppliers have dedicated capacity to support our project, ensuring that product can be delivered timely.
