About

“Because taking 2 trips is for the weak” … and because sometimes there are elevators, 3 doors, a flight of stairs, your bike and a dog. Let your body do the lift, and free your hands for the important stuff!

URBAN STRAP™ lets you focus the weight on your strengths; not your weaknesses 

Adaptability 

Very easy to use like putting on any belt, the Urban Strap™ is ergonomic due to it’s Torso Modulation Capability (meaning, it rotates around your torso very easily).

Weight Distribution

Lets face it, your hands and fingers have been taking a beating your entire life; shopping in the bustling city and walking endless blocks, setting up sound equipment for a show, and taking your bike up to the loft is just getting to be too much. 

With multiple configurations and creative uses, Urban Strap™ complements your lifestyle.

Maximum Weight – More than 80 pounds

The Situation(s)

Daily Life – has been made complicated; we need free hands to look at ingredients and tags while we shop, use our smart phones while we walk, or simply hold hands while we jostle stuff:

  • Going to the Beach 
  • Walking the Dog 
  • Carrying your Bike 
  • Carrying stuff while you Ride your Bike 
  • Baby Carriers

Setting up Gigs – Musicians have it the worst; bad shoulders, strained hands and multiple set-ups is a drain. Imagine the release in tension and stress.

  • Guitar Cases 
  • Cello Cases
  • Bass Cases
  • Amps 
  • Monitors / Speakers 
  • DJ Cases
  • All things Drums and Percussion
  • Visit our Facebook Page for more uses...

School/College Life – Honestly college dorms seldom have elevators, and kegs are not built for your hands, nor can they be rolled up the stairs!

  • Carrying School Supplies (Bags, Books, Laptops) 
  • Kegs (!!!!) 
  • And everything else you take to your dorm (Groceries, Bikes, etc...)
  • Visit our Facebook Page for more uses...

Recreational – Wouldn’t you wish going up the mountain, or down the cliff was a tad bit easier? Well now you have a few possibilities.

  • Camping Equipment

  • Snowboards 
  • Skateboards

the Pledge

It's Simple, you get your Urban Strap™ at $35 (to start). Projected retail for the Urban Strap™ will be approximately $49.

GOALS 

We feel a clear and simple directive regarding goals is where it's at. 

Our reached goal of $17,000 will first and foremost prove that there is a verified demand for the Urban Strap™. That in itself is priceless! 

Second, the molds for the hardware are high in initial costs, and there is a minimum quantity this campaign will help meet.

Third, are all other costs calculated into this campaign; package and freight costs, customs fees and shipping to the pledgee, you! 

Once the finished strap arrives to our fulfillment facilities, each step of the way has a down-stroke.

Monies above our goal will expedite our two latest test phase prototypes, that will be brought to production within two months of the end date of this campaign. We have mentioned some additional attachments which is just the beginning; reaching this goal will secure a second patent filing ensuring some fanfare not limited to the Urban Strap™ alone.

Risks and challenges

Production of any item never before created will encounter some hurdles. This idea and concept began almost a year ago. The countless emails/phone calls and numerous prototypes have all been a deliberate process. Its purpose was to not only test the actual products capabilities, but the manufacturers relationship and integrity as a provider.

I have not let the fate of production lie in the hands of any one company. I have built relationships with several leading manufacturers and feel quite certain that the second and third options will work just as well if the first fails to achieve our standard.

I intend to see this through. Any questions or concerns, please contact me personally urbanstrap@outlook.com.

Regards

Thomas Leach, President
