About

My name is Tracy Cener and I think I found a simple solution to a very common problem. 

My dog Brody was full of energy and constantly playing with his abundance of toys in the house. Every couple of minutes something was bound to go under the couch and Brody would start his insanely high pitched bark until someone got down on their hands and knees and retrieved it for him. 

This is Jamie the dog!
This is Jamie the dog!

We had to start stacking things around the couch so his toys wouldn't go under. I started realizing that all of my friends with pets and children had this same exact problem and thats when I came up with Gap Bumper. 

Not only does Gap Bumper keep your pets happy, it also helps with children as well! I have seen many a bottle and binkys under couches that parents did not even know was there! And whats worse is you know its there but really have no way of getting it out without having to crawl on your hands and knees to get the items.

After creating the product I realized that it also helps a third audience, and that is people with disabilitues or elderly people that cant get on the ground if something rolls under the couch. 

It took a few different prototypes to figure out a material that would be strong enough to hold the force of of a dog toy getting thrown at it and also easy enough to use on all different couches. 

We used a pet/child safe rubber to cause friction between the bumper and the floor making it harder for objects to slide under it. We didn't want people to have to struggle with cutting things to length or attaching it to different size legs so we made it out of layered, flexible stainless steel to easily wrap around any shape or size furniture. The flexible steel also makes it east to wrap up for shipping and storing. 

Its 10 Feet long and 3 inches tall so it will fit under most furniture. 

We need to place a substantial minimum order for the first production run that is why we are asking for your support! 

Risks and challenges
