rüT is a unique solution to vertical planter hanging. rüT gives you the freedom to create the visual landscape of your dreams anytime you like. This new hanger does not require any hardware and its simple form leaves a clean look, putting all the attention on your plants. This model was designed to fit the standard wooden balusters of wooden decks and patios.
The Story of rüT
This is an idea that I would like to expand further and your pledges can help me do so. I would like to expand the line to accommodate hanging on a variety of other structures, as well as adding accessories to further enhance the diversity of your landscape.
What do you get
Where does it go?
Standard wooden balusters measure roughly 1-1/4” square. While there are decks built with other components, the standard baluster is the most commonly used.
rüT affords you new opportunities to make use of an incredibly under utilized space. Renters are not allowed to make permanent modifications to the structure of the dwellings they reside in, be it apartments, townhouses or single family homes. Homeowners know how expensive decks are to build and maintain so they would rather not put unnecessary holes if it can be avoided. rüT's simple installation solves that problem. rüT lets you give a simple facelift to your front porch or create a beautiful landscape across your entire patio, all without a single screw.
Through the process, I looked at a variety of materials and manufacturing methods. I have decided to forge ahead with 14 gauge steel. Punched with a turret press from a single sheet and bent to exacting tolerances. To protect against the elements and add a bit of grip, these will be coated with a polyvinyl coating. rüT is strong and durable and will be perfect for any environment.
rüT is manufactured, finished, and packed locally here in Chicago.
Strength & Stability
How does it work
rüT’s design offers ease of installation and flexibility of placement.
Once this campaign is fulfilled, I would like to investigate further options for different environments; looking into wrought iron and picket fences as well as other accessories to allow for other hanging options such as hanging baskets and non-standard pots.
Risks and challenges
The production schedule is set and timely, and the manufacturers are eager to start the process! After manufacturing is complete, all the parts will make their way into my hands for a final QC check and packing.
I don't foresee any complications, but I assure you I will be communicating with you every step of the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
