About

Holding is Tiring! Take the weight off your hands!

The Handee Holder is a wearable smartphone holder that you can use in many situations. It frees your hands from holding your smartphone which can be tiring and painful to your arms, wrists and hands after a while.

Overall the Handee Holder gives you a better smartphone experience, because you do not have to constantly change posture, swap supporting hands or place your smartphone on a supporting surface in order to relieve your hands of the holding stress.

For more challenging positions, the user can use a combination of the frictional joints, balancing act of the telescopic tube and the bag's main zip mechanism for extra stability. As we mostly focus longer on our smartphone during low movement activities such as standing, sitting and lying down, the holder's mechanism works out efficiently in these situations where there is no extra movement pressure on the holder's frictional mechanisms.

The Handee Holder is a cool wearable waistbag which ingeniously hide away the holder's mechanism during non-usage. The design of the Handee Holder has taken into consideration the user's appearance and has revolutionized the classic waist bag's design for the smartphone era.

The journey from initial concept to a fully working prototype has been challenging but all the hard work has paid off as we believe we have a product that will really make smartphone users' lives easier. My family's life and my life have certainly improved, just imagine you are sitting on your sofa watching a video on your smartphone at the ideal position and you do not have to hold the smartphone. Well the Handee Holder can make these kind of situations come true.

The Handee Holder will be ready end of December 2016 and delivery for  the priority Kickstarter backers will take place by the end of December 2016 itself or early January 2017. All other backers will get their Handee Holder by the end of January 2017, just in time for an exciting and promising handsfree 2017. The waist bag smartphone holder will be made to high quality standard to meet your expectations. We have spent many hours in designing and developing prototypes, therefore we are confident we have a great product ready for production.  

The Handee Holder is here to be your companion in this smartphone era. We believe the main advantage of this product is the way it will blend with your existing appearance. We can guarantee you will never be the odd one out when you wear the Handee Holder, on the contrary you will look trendier with this cool and modern waist bag.  

Smartphones are so important in our lives today that we kind of forget our poor hands, wrists and arms are working even harder nowadays to keep up with the demand of constant access to our smartphones. Because we use our smartphones anytime and anywhere, the Handee Holder is our wearable companion and comfortable to wear even for long hours.

Smartphones are a global phenomenon, therefore hands and arms all over the world will be feeling the pain of holding them for long periods of time. We would like to give smartphone users a better experience by taking the Handee Holder to the world as fast as possible!

For the production, there are different parts required to make the Handee Holder. The manufacturers need 30-50% deposit upfront to start production and for the holder's mechanism parts, we also need to make customized ABS moulds, which is a big investment. The different components will be assembled in the UK.

We also have to showcase the product to potential distributors and retailers to increase our chances of success in the market. The activities will include making new contacts, visiting trade shows/ exposing the Handee holder at trade shows, sending samples to potential retailers, working out on the best quotes for potential business clients as well as having personal meetings with potential clients in some cases. We will have to invest in marketing to reach the potential customers/clients and letting them know about the benefits this amazing product and it can add value to their business and enhance the smartphone experience of their customers.

The Handee Holder has been active on social media for the past few months and has had many fans on facebook/handeeholder, twitter/handeeholder and instagram/handeeholder. Even working on a small marketing budget, we found that smartphone users are interested in our product.

We have a patent pending for the Handee Holder and although the cost of the intellectual property will rocket as we start investing in global protection, we are confident we will offer a unique product which will be handy for many years to come.

With your help and backing, we will be able to make the first production and reach out to the world. Your support will enable millions of smartphone users to find out about the benefits of having their arms and hands relaxed. The more people know about the product, the more demand there will be and hopefully we will be able to clinch a deal with a major retailer.  

'Using your smartphone is great but killing your hands isn't'. Your hands deserve some rest from time to time. Help us make the initial production and put us on track for a 'Handee' journey. We cannot do this without you. Thank you in advance.

Risks and challenges

From the initial concept, through the design process and finally making the working prototype, the journey had its challenges which we overcame because we believed in the product. There is no denying the manufacturing of the parts and making the Handee Holder will be get us into new territory but we really believe we will fulfill all our promises through our hard work and good planning. To minimize any uncertainty, we are already in contact with reputable manufacturers for the different components and we can assure you these manufacturers are the best in their fields. The Handee Holder will be assembled in the UK and shipped to you using one of the UK's reputable courier service.

There may be resistance in the perception of some people that the Handee Holder is a fanny pack and therefore they will be unwilling to wear one. However the design of the Handee Holder is a modern upgrade of the classic waist bag and it will certainly look cool on any person.

The main challenge will be to spread the word that our campaign is live. We are a small company with limited marketing funds and it might be a struggle to reach out to potential backers. However we are sure the product will appeal to many smartphone users due to its unique design and they will spread the word to their peers.

We are sure we can achieve our goal here on Kickstarter and help you to get your hands free.
