About

SLNGR props your phone up front and center for easy, hands-free viewing. 

  SLNGR securely holds your phone and other personal essentials such as your charger, keys or ear buds. 

  Place your smart phone into its adjustable spring-mount holder and hang it around your neck. SLNGR folds out (opens) for quick and easy access to your phone. You can rotate your phone screen for vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape) viewing/access positions.

SLNGR keeps your gear near and dear while you’re out and about. 

  No need to carry a bulky purse or backpack. Replace clumsy belt clip holders or dorky fanny packs with a SLNGR. No fumbling around trying to locate your phone when it rings. (and no butt-dailing)

  No more sagging sweat pants or sport shorts due to the weight of your phone, wallet or keys. SLNGR helps lighten the load.

  Kids will be less likely to misplace their phones when they are attached to a SLNGR.

It’s a phone extension.

  SLNGR really delivers as a simple extension for viewing your phone. You will come to appreciate how nice it is to simply view your phone in a comfortable, natural hands-free position. Especially on those long, crowded, confined travel trips where you’re sitting or standing for long periods of time.

SLNGR works with phones up to 3.5" (9cm) wide

Premium SLNGR colors. 

  Early SLNGR supporters can choose from these limited first-run colors. (All other SLNGR’s will be standard black on black) Select a special color to personalize your SLNGR. The same $50 pledge also includes the SLNGR Waist Strap Harness.

Useful features and functions. 

  SLNGR’s outer material is made with durable polyester canvas and strong woven nylon straps. The neck strap is adjustable and padded for comfort. It also has a safety breakaway feature that pulls apart if it gets unexpectedly caught or yanked. We are pleased to be working on SLNGR with www.everestbag.com

First-person shooter

  When the front support is in its upright and locked position, SLNGR holds your phone’s camera facing forward so you can capture first-person video footage. Hands free. Great for skating, snow boarding, cycling or touring/travel videos. Yes, it will hold your phone in proper landscape video position.

Bud-free listening

  Another simple SLNGR feature is being able to listen to your phone without having to wear headphones or ear buds. With your phone positioned right in front of you, you can hear your phone/music/podcasts well enough without them. You can also hear your phone ring.

Mobile point-of-sale credit card capture  

  SLNGR is perfect for accommodating mobile credit card capturing/reader devices such as Square, PayAnywhere or PayPal. Great if you are operating mobile businesses at street fairs, night markets or food stands.  SLNGR will be your bosom buddy.

Voice command performance

  SLNGR holds your phone in an appropriate hands-free position for speaking voice commands via Siri, Google Now, S Voice or Cortana.

  SLNGR features a well engineered inner support structure and phone holder/mount. This will support your phone in a firm and stable access position. The injection molded parts are strong and lightweight. Due to the use of different materials, we have to make separate tools for each component (costly).

Optional SLNGR waist strap harness

  This may appear to be taking the phone-holding thing to the extreme... but it is actually useful if you’re running, biking or bending over a lot. It’s not neccessarily a necessary neccessity. The SLNGR performs well enough without it.  But it’s an available option that may better suit your needs.

Buy a vowel. 

  Help us achieve our goal with a generous $10.00 “encouragement” pledge. You will receive our sincere gratitude and be updated on SLNGR progress and promotions.

It has begun...

  SLNGR is clearly the next step in human evolution. We already can’t bear to be without our phones. SLNGR will help us comfortably adapt - and adopt - as we transition into cyborgs. Singularity, people. Get on board early. 

The mobile phone has evolved.  It's time for their accessories to evolve with them.

Thanks for your support.

I’ve had so much fun working on this SLNGR project. I was able to explore and utilize so many of my personal skills and interests. From engineering to design to development to production. SLNGR has become a legitimate product that I am proud and committed to bring to market. 

I know you will be pleased with the quality and care that has gone into the making of SLNGR. And its practical function and features. It really is a purposeful... useful... thing.

I will be sure to keep you up to date on SLNGR’s progress and provide insight to the production process. Thanks for the support.

Risks and challenges

SLNGR has been pretty well developed and refined. It's ready to go into production. Solidwork designs have been rapid prototyped and fit tested. Patterns have been finalized and samples sewn. Materials and parts confirmed. I have worked with this toolmaker for years on more complicated projects. Chinese New Year (in February) may effect the tool making process, but this has been factored into the expected delivery date.
