Tail Lights Rider Safety System

Tail Lights, Inc.

We have changed how the world sees horses with the invention of the worlds first LED lighting safety system specifically for equine use.  We help horses and riders to Be Visible.  Save Your Tail.

Why have Tail Lights?

Every year thousands of horses and riders are injured and killed by collisions on the roads.  We at Tail Lights believe that now with technology we can make everyone safe and improve our streets and urban areas.

 Be Visible on the roads

 The Tail Lights Rider series comes with a sleek and compact front unit that attaches onto a breast collar, and a beautifully designed rear Tail Light unit with 4 strands of the most cutting edge LED strands made.

 It is easy to use with a small hand held remote controlled keychain fob. The Tail Lights Rider series is the perfect way to just slap it on and go ride.

The Tail Lights Rider series attaches to the base of the tail with our patented Tail Lights tail wrap. Just wrap, clip and GO!

 Not riding on the road and want a different  color other than red?  Just like our Tail Lights PRO series, the Tail Lights Rider allows for changes of color to match your mood and your riding style.  Here are just some of the colors.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

We have almost everything lined up from assembly to shipping.  What we don't have is the tooling.  The money we are raising in this campaign is going straight into the tooling of the product.  This will give us the ability to make the housing of both the hard plastic cases as well as the custom LED strands that we use for the product.  

We have been very lucky as to date we have not had to take on outside investors and have been able to keep control of the company and where we manufacture and assemble.  This allows Tail Lights Inc. to be in total control of who we hire, where we manufacture and how we do things.  This is something we want to continue.

WHERE WE MANUFACTURE AND ASSEMBLE

We have a US based assembly office in Traverse City Michigan.  Home office is in Woodland Hills California.  Some of our product comes from overseas, but we try to keep as much as we can local, and we believe in bringing manufacturing home.  Our goal is to bring manufacturing back to the states and to hire military veterans to help get outstanding people back to work.  

 Backing this project will help bring our dreams to reality - that we can help change the way the world sees horses.  So help us help you to BE VISIBLE. SAVE YOUR TAIL.

Thanks!!

Risks and challenges

Because we are already in production of the Tail Lights PRO series, we have already secured manufacturing, and we are just waiting for the working capital to start tooling and production.

We have a very aggressive time frame to get these out to the public for Christmas, and we plan on ramping up production as soon as our goal is met.

We will be using a drop shipping company to package and ship products after the funding and production runs. We have 2 other companies we are working with in case any setbacks arise with shipping.
