Why We Need Your Help
If our project is funded your pledge will help us continue to produce XFLEX in the USA. With your help we'll be able to lower our production costs through bulk ordering of materials. The last thing we want to do is outsource production overseas.
We know how much people love XFLEX from all the positive feedback and reviews. Since it was clear that we designed a versatile product with great functionality we invested in a CNC machine for in-house manufacturing and decided to sell direct until the ideal retail opportunity came along.
Your pledge is greatly appreciated and you can sleep well at night knowing you personally helped keep jobs in the USA. In return we'll send you an amazing product in a timely manner that we guarantee you'll love.

Risks and challenges
The potential obstacles we face are production and supply delays along with quality control.
Production delays should not be a problem since XFLEX has already gone into production and we are prepared to fulfill orders. We cut the XFLEX aluminum components in-house using a brand new and reliable Haas CNC machine, but we've established a good business relationship with a large local machine shop that can help supplement our production if orders exceed our expectations. For components that are not produced in-house we have established relationships with reliable vendors that we can count on to deliver on time.
Aluminum production entails many variables and as a result shipments might be delayed. We'll prepare for this supply delay by forecasting demand and staying in constant contact with our supplier. Orders will be placed early enough to ensure delivery in time to fulfill orders.
Quality control is another challenge we're fully prepared to meet. We re-engineered XFLEX for greater functionality with the help of feedback from users of the 1st generation model. Our full-production model now incorporates rare earth magnets for quick release of the arm along with a new power-locking "sticky" suction cup.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
