About

PLEASE BACK OUR PROJECT AND HELP US ROLL OUT THE NEW 2015 COURT GRABBERS. CHOOSE YOUR REWARD & SAY "GOODBYE" TO SLIPPERY COURTS!

Stop slipping on the Court!

Slipping on dusty courts is no fun and it happens all the time on even the best courts around the world, no matter what sport you play. Wiping your shoes with your hands is really unhealthy and not a good way to restore your traction. Court Grabbers put you in control of your traction, where you need it most, on the court, while you're playing. You lace the Base Strip onto your shoe once and then apply a small amount of Traction Gel to the Traction Pad. Slide the Traction Pad onto the Base Strip and you're ready to go. When you need traction, just wipe your shoes over your Court Grabbers and in less than 2 seconds you have the best traction on the court. All without using your hands. The complete set weighs 1/2 an ounce, so you never feel them on your shoe. 

It's your choice: Keep slipping, or get equipped with Court Grabbers today & Grab an Edge on your opponent.

Rocky Carson  

is Professional Racquetball's "Golden Boy" & is currently the #2 ranked Pro in the World. He used to wipe his shoes with his hands before every serve. Rocky made Court Grabbers part of his permanent equipment in July 2013 and within 1 month stopped using his hands to regain traction. (Test model is shown in this video)

are a European acrobatic basketball team that has been amazing audiences for more than 10 years. They have performed in 35 countries on 5 continents. They just recently discovered the increased safety that Court Grabber's traction brings to their performances. They even use our Traction Gel to keep their trampolines from sliding on the floor.(Test model is shown in this video)

BUYING FOR CHRISTMAS? Once we hit our funding goal, you'll be able to email or print our Christmas Gift Certificate from our site.

Based upon the performance of our test model, which was available July of 2013 until November 2014, we have received rave reviews from players, both professional and amateur, coaches and parents here in the United States and in 11 different countries. 

We've heard from players, pro athletes, coaches and parents involved in sports from Basketball & Volleyball to Handball & Ping-Pong and the same reactions are repeated over and over.

Players - Love how Court Grabbers elevate their performance by providing winning traction on any surface, where & when you need it most - on the court, during play.  

Parents - Love the way Court Grabbers stop players from licking their hands and wiping their shoes to gain traction. This is an unhealthy habit that can cause illness and worse.  

Coaches - Love the confidence that Court Grabbers provide their players, who can now execute plays on even the slickest of courts. 

WHY KICKSTARTER? 

OUR PATRONS SPOKE & WE LISTENED! 

Our original test model was introduced in July of 2013. We used that model to determine that this concept indeed worked, was in compliance with established rules, and that there was strong demand for a completely new approach to traction. We listened to feedback from players, coaches, and pro athletes and found that while the performance provided by our equipment far exceeded any other traction option, Court Grabbers needed a "cooler look". So we went back to the drawing board and completely redesigned every aspect of Court Grabbers to make them a fashionable addition to the equipment of today's athlete. 

The new streamlined design makes Court Grabbers super easy to use for players of all ages. The rainbow of colors provide the flexibility to mix and match colors with virtually every shoe on the market. The potential combinations are endless.

Reaching our initial goal will allow us to produce the molds to manufacture the new, streamlined Court Grabbers and fulfill your rewards for helping us reach that level of funding. Funds raised over and above the initial goal will allow us to roll out additional exciting color combinations to enhance your Court Grabber experience.

Risks and challenges

We've been through the design, production and distribution process with our current model and we know what needs to be done to bring this new model to market.

Our team of design engineers, packaging and fulfillment pro's, chemist, printers and several others, all count major corporations among their clients, so we have the team to deliver Court Grabbers to your home court.

Once we have the molds finalized, our production process is not complicated, and our experience has prepared us to address any challenges that may arise. While we are targeting a February 15th roll out date, we have to make sure the actual model provides the same incredible traction that has become expected from Court Grabbers. We’ll keep you updated as we move through the process.

Here's the 2 main potential challenges:

1. Mold Production: Once we hit our funding goal, we’ll authorize production of the molds. Turn time is 6-8 weeks. Molds always have to be "perfected". While the refinements are usually minor, they do take a few days to be completed. If the molds are completed sooner, than our timeline could move up.

2. Testing: We will have to "court test" the new model to make sure that it delivers the same incredible traction as our current test model. If all goes well, this takes a few days. If we find unexpected problems, it could take a little while longer.

Once we have the molds finalized, we can produce thousands of kits weekly, so we'll be able to fulfill any level of rewards promptly.
No matter what, we'll keep you informed on a regular basis. Anyone who has dealt with us during our first year of testing the current model knows the high level of our customer service and our devotion to the making your Court Grabbers the best traction equipment on the planet.

Thanks for investing in your game with Court Grabbers!!
