What is Cablox?
What is Mini Cablox?
Mini Cablox is simply a smaller version of the standard 8x8 Cablox. Mini Cablox has 2x8 knobs.
When do I need the Mini Cablox?
This slimmer design makes Mini Cablox easy to it useful on the edge of your table or desk, or in other narrow place. It may be all the Cablox you need if you don't have many cables in a specific location.
Why do I need Mini Cablox?
Can't I just cut the original 8x8 Cablox into smaller pieces? Yes you can, and this is exactly what we did in order to make the Mini Cablox prototype you see in the photos and video. This is not an optimal or scalable solution, however, for seveal reasons:
- Cutting the Cablox destroys adhesive tape that holds Cablox to the desk or table surface.
- The plastic is very tough and difficult to cut. (We actually chose this type of plastic - polypropylene - because it is able to bend many times without breaking.)
- If you cut the plastic, it will create rough edges that may hurt your fingers when you press the cables in place.
If you back our Mini Cablox project, you'll get a set of 3 Mini Cablox which is enough to resolve a lot of cable clutter problems. Want more than one set? Then just multiply your pledge with the amount of sets (the shipping cost outside the US is fixed regardless of the number of sets). NB: In some reward categories it is stated that the reward is "Cablox". This is not correct. It is "Mini Cablox".
We have now introduced Stretch Goals which mean a bonus will be given to all backers (pledging for physical products) if we reach 200% funding:
How will the money be spent?
Risks and challenges
We have already designed, produced and sold the original 8x8 Cablox. As the Mini Cablox is less complex, we do not expect any surprises. We will use the same injection molding factory that made the original Cablox and the same plastic compound. We are confident that the factory can make the simpler product work in production. The adhesive is also the same as used with the original Cablox, so we expect no surprises there, either. However, with new products anything can happen. We have a lot of experience in tackling unexpected production issues and we will inform our backers about any unforeseen events and what they may mean for the progress of the Mini Cablox project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Just add N x $8 to your pledge for the Mini Cablox where N is the number of 2-packs with the original Cablox 8x8. When the 'live phase' of the project is over, we will make a survey asking for your preferred color.
