About


The Zeus Handy Tool was born from an idea to equip the city urbanite and outdoors adventurer with a super tough, compact, affordable yet extremely functional toolbox-in-one. Versatile enough to tackle many everyday jobs, it's the ideal home, office, dorm, car and outdoors companion that stores away neatly into any drawer, shelf, glove compartment and bag. 

 

Innovatively designed with each function in mind, the Zeus Handy Tool is extremely versatile and tough with a capital 'T'. With rust-proofed steel tools and a hard cased aluminium shell, it really is the ultimate toolbox-in-one.

I came up with the idea after realizing I didn't have the right tools to disassemble IKEA furniture. With a full toolbox at hand, yet not the right tools for the job, I just knew there had to be a better way. That’s when I thought of a tough yet handy, single unit that could house multiple functions and the idea behind the Zeus Handy Tool was born. Together with the right team, I spent plenty of time perfecting it to what you see today.

It began with a rough sketch that was then modelled into computer-aided designs and drawings. Next, a plastic prototype was fabricated for a three-dimensional look and feel of the unit. A metal prototype soon followed with each function set in place. Extensively tested, modifications were made to improve each tools accessibility, functionality and durability. A second metal prototype was followed by a small sample production run to reveal the super tough, compact, yet extremely functional toolbox-in-one that is the Zeus Handy Tool.

 

By backing this project, you can be one of the first to own this innovative toolbox-in-one. Once the project has been successfully funded, the pledges will be used to fund a first major production run of the Zeus Handy Tool. Based on estimates provided by the manufacturer, the tools will be ready to ship within 6 - 8 weeks after successful completion of the project. Thank you for your interest and support as this project would not be possible without you!

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Designing and manufacturing new products always involves risk. I’ve spent over two years refining the Zeus Handy Tool with ongoing advice from tool experts to minimise these risks. Essentially, I have selected a manufacturer that specializes in product development, and has a track record of reliability, quality assurance and on time production. I am completely committed to ensuring the Zeus Handy Tool lives up to expectations and have kept the reward tiers as simple as possible to ensure fulfilment goes smoothly. Understandably, this is where other Kickstarter projects have slipped up in the past and I do not underestimate this challenges of this stage. I have already teamed up with a fulfilment company to ensure you get your Zeus Handy Tool on time.
