Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am not a clumsy guy, but when it comes to handling my smartphone, I totally feel like one. These devices got so small and fragile; it only takes one little unfortunate slip and… BAAM. Like many of you, I once broke my phone. Another time, I almost flushed it down the toilet! Uncool.
So I started thinking, what if there was a little leash on my phone, like on cameras and key sets? I started experimenting with duct tape and plastic parts, and soon came up with something that would prove to be very useful. With this gadget on her phone, my girlfriend was now able to walk out the door with her bag in one hand, scarf, keys and coffee in the other, and her phone to her wrist like a bracelet! As for me, when out on the town, I preferred the loop around my fingers. Soon enough, friends started asking for loops that matched their cases, which lead to case-matching improvements.
After many tries and enhancements, I finally came up with a one-size-fits-all loop for hand-held devices: the petite loop! No more dropping your iPhone on your face while texting in bed, no more losing your Galaxy at the bottom of your bag, no more Nexus down the toilet… eew! With that petite loop on your phone, you can now reach, drag, find, and hold your phone without ever skipping a beat.

Extra : Get your friends and family something creative and useful for the Holidays!
Petite loop turns out to be very useful around the house. It works as a lanyard for my key set, I use it as bookmarks for books, and there is definitely a loop on the Apple TV remote control, which somehow always find its way into the couch. And I'm sure you'll find many more uses for your loops! More pictures to come...

Risks and challenges
Shipping in time for the Holidays: To ensure you have your loops in time for the Holidays, you must quickly confirm your pledge by responding to the email survey that Kickstarter will send you on our behalf when the project is successfully funded.
This is a tight schedule but we are prepared for this. We actually have the capacity and the experience to deliver thousands of loops within a two week time frame. This is not our first time filling orders, stuffing envelops and packages, printing labels, talking with manufacturers, and answering emails. The manufacturing process is already in place and the crafters are waiting for your pledges! We will start our pre-production (plates manufacturing) mid-November, according to pledge momentum, so that loops are ready to ship by early December.
Everyone who completed their survey by December 5th will have their loops shipped by December 7th. Shipping normally takes 5-10 days, which leaves a one (1) week buffer. We will update you guys on every step of the process so you can have a backstage experience of that Kickstarter madness.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
