The NEW Sock Slide - Save Time, Money and Aggrevation
The Sock Slide holds your socks together in pairs through washing and drying so there is no mating, sorting or losing socks.
We are re-launching our Sock Slide with a new lower goal in hopes that we can achieve it and get into production.
We are able to reduce our goal because we have researched the composite materials to use for the Sock Slide and have found one that is not only stronger and more durable but it is also lighter which will change our shipping costs to send them out to you.
As the father and husband, I have frequently helped my wife sitting on the couch and mating socks together. Some socks look the same but have just a slight variance in decoration. Some that have the same decorations but are slightly different sizes. And then there are those that end up orphans and have no mate.
I decided to do something about the exorbitant amount of lost time and the money wasted on lost socks. Thus the birth of The Sock Slide. After making several prototypes and design changes, We have a design that holds the socks together gently but firmly through the wash and dry cycles.
All you have to do is to put a Sock Slide on your socks when you take them off and forget it. When the laundry is done, they will already be matched and sorted by color. There is nothing more to do.
Unlike other products on the market or a rubber bands that make you bunch up your socks to get them on, the Sock Slide does not bunch up your socks so it allows them to get entirely clean. The Sock Slide's teeth are offset to allow for excellent cleaning and secure holding.
We are trying to get these produced with an injection mold for an even smoother finish and we want them to ultimately be made of Polypropylene which is more durable and has a higher heat tolerance than the ABS from which they are now made. In order to do this, we need to have funds for a mold and an initial minimum product run of 25000 pieces.
It holds just about evry style of sock together through the washing and drying process. You don't need to do anything but put your socks in the drawer and pull out a pair when you need it. Take the Sock Slide off and wear the socks and when you take them off at the end of the day, simply slide the Sock Slide on them and toss them in the laundry.
Ultimately the Sock Slides will be sold in packs of 10 pieces with 5 or 6 different colors available. This will give every member of the family their own color. They will retail for around $9.99 for a sleeve of 10.
Risks and challenges
The challenges we might face are - colors and delivery time.
The colors might not be the same as in the prototypes we have built out of ABS. We will do our very best to make sure that the final product is as vibrant and attractive as possible.
As we get further into production, our shipping time will decrease as we become more familiar with the processes involved.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
