EveDrop makes hanging Christmas Lights quicker and easier than any other related product on the market. Say goodbye to your ladder.

EveDrop System
EveDrop System

Evedrop began almost one year ago while I stared at my roof wishing I didn't have to get up on a ladder again and take down the lights I had  put up three weeks prior just to do it all over again the next year.

We have spent the last year developing a way to keep your lights up year round and without the use of a ladder.  It has become the only accessory that can convert your Holiday Lighting into either a hidden system in the off position or a backlighting system if left on. 

It is the fastest and safest way to display your Christmas Lights and can be done without the use of a ladder. 

Hidden Position
Hidden Position

Some systems out there allow you to fairly quickly hang your lights each year, but they typically cause your string lighting to droop between clips and you still have to take it all down and throw it in a storage box when the Holidays are done.

This product is currently patent pending and will eventually include adapter kits that will be compatible with icicle lights and rope lights.  The adapter parts for these kits have already been created, but will be part of the second phase after production is well under way.  We are also currently developing methods that utilize the EveDrop functionality while being compatible with home styles in the Eastern United States.  Namely gutter style roofs and closed eaves (Soffits). 

Kickstarter is the means by which we hope to fund our initial production order.  Our manufacturer is located overseas and we have been working together over the past few months to establish the cost of the item as well as the startup costs for the molds.  There are multiple molds needed because of the number of parts that make up EveDrop.  The minimum order quantity, freight, customs fees, and shipping costs are all considered when making the goal for this project, which we plan to supplement our own investment.  The expected April delivery date is a little ways out and is due to the time needed to produce and approve the production line samples that will be sent via air mail.  Once approval is given for the samples to the manufacturer, the order is placed and will ship overseas to the Los Angeles dock by container.  The shipment will then be brought via common carrier to our location in Las Vegas where we will package and send to each of our Kickstarter supporters.  This process can take some time, but April is easily achievable.  We have also been working with a packaging company overseas, but will be shipping this initial order out to you all in bulk package as opposed to spending money on packaging at this time. 

Here are a few more picks of EveDrop in action.

You should always consult with your local municipality before leaving your lights in the on position throughout the year for the backlighting.  There are certain agencies that may prefer that holiday lighting not used as a method for permanent lighting as mentioned in the national electrical code.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

It would be naïve not to acknowledge the possibility of challenges that may arise going forward with this project. Arriving to this point in the process has not been without its bumps and sudden turns in the road.

That said, we have a very sound understanding of where we stand with our production costs. If we reach our funding goal it will supplement the amount that we have already raised toward our initial startup order. With that in mind, the risks are not high for this project.
