The Instagate: Tailgate In A Box™ is the perfect solution for those looking for an easier and more affordable way to tailgate, BBQ, or picnic. Spend LESS TIME packing, setting up, and cleaning up and MORE TIME enjoying your party with friends and family.
No matter where or when you want to grill and chill, the Instagate has you covered with a grill, a cooler, and more than 10 other tailgate party essentials.
The Instagate tables and cooler can be reused more than once. I've used mine multiple times and it still gets the job done. The only item that is truly 1x use is the recyclable grill. We will offer grills for resale at a separate price when we are up and running. When the party is over, if you do want a truly hassle free clean up you still can simply recycle the grill and cooler and dispose of the eco-friendly biodegradable party supplies in the included compost bag and you are good to go. It's up to you!
Chip in with a few friends and it costs significantly less than a stadium beer or hot dog. Instagate accommodates up to 10 people!

Scroll down for more details on what comes inside...
3 FOLD OUT TABLE PLATFORMS
INSTAGATE has 3 fold out tables that provide all the room you need for all your plates, cups, food, drinks and even tailgating games.
The convenience tray is the first thing you'll see when you open up your INSTAGATE. It holds all of your tailgating essentials and is easily removable and can be placed on one of the three fold out tables.
All the essentials you need for tailgating come INSIDE the INSTAGATE. Including (3) grilling tools, (1) lighter/bottle opener, (2) pong balls, (30) utensils, (20) condiment packets, (12) cups, (10) plates, (20) napkins, and (1) disposable bag!
EASY LIGHT GRILL LASTS UP TO 2 HOURS
The grill also comes included and can cook up burgers, hot dogs, chicken, steaks, brats, and other tailgating favorites! It uses natural lump charcoal that adds great smoky flavor to meats.
60 QUART COOLER
The 60 qt. cooler really packs a punch. There's even enough room to fit the grill and convenience tray on top of all that is shown above so you literally can bring an entire tailgate with you...in ONE box.
GRILL STAND HOLDERS LOCK GRILL INTO PLACE
Another feature of our patent-pending design are the locking grill stand holders. These make sure your grill locks into place and is secure while in use.
LOCKING TABLE HINGES
All table surfaces have folding hinges that lock in place and make sure your tables are sturdy and help prevent the risk of table legs getting kicked out.
BBQ FORK, TONGS, AND SPATULA
We know in order to get the job done right you need the right tools. That's why we made sure to include 3 different BBQ tools so that whether you are cooking burgers, brats, or ribs you have the right tool to get the job done.
Opening bottles with a lighter is A LOT easier when there is a bottle opener built right in. This also comes included and is perfect for those who like to grill and bar-tend at the same time.
CUSTOM PONG BALLS
You can't have a tailgate without games right? Use these with INSTAGATE's fold out side tables for a unique twist on a classic tailgating game. You gotta try seated pong. With the cooler built right into the table you literally never have to get up! Sorry we couldn't fit chairs in the box though! (We're workin' on it)
INSTAGATE IN ACTION:
Instagate: Tailgate In A Box and Instagate: Tailgate For 2:
If we reach our new stretch goal of $50,000 we will be able to manufacturer a smaller version of the Instagate that is perfect for a 2 person tailgate. It contains everything the original Instagate comes with but in a smaller more compact size.
I love tailgating, BBQ-ing, and hanging outside with friends and family, so I figured any way to make those things easier is a good thing. Hence, the Instagate: Tailgate in a Box™. Now you can just grab an Instagate and head out to your event or party with everything you need.
The grill, cooler, and grilling tools are all made using recyclable materials and the cups, plates, utensils, and disposal bags are made from easily renewable resources like sugarcane and cornstarch that biodegrade within 90 days. We believe tailgating & BBQ-ing can be easier and eco-friendly.
We are working with a team of experienced professionals who are helping us out tremendously and share our vision of bringing this eco-friendly tailgating solution to you. We have employed one of the largest corrugated manufacturers in the USA as well as other suppliers who are committed to making this dream a reality and are ready to work with us in all aspects of operations including manufacturing & production, quality control, assembly, order processing, and shipping.
Here is our timeline for how we are going to make this happen:
September to Early October: Get the word out on Kickstarter, connect with as many people as possible, sign sales agreements with manufacturers.
Early October: Meet with manufacturers to finalize production details, place tooling orders, finalize logistic processes.
Early to Mid October: Begin manufacturing, quality assurance, and shipment of goods sold. Express manufacturing/delivery for 1000 unit order.
Late October to Early November: Assembly of kits, further quality assurance, and begin fulfilling early delivery INSTAGATES.
Mid November to Late November: Assembly of kits further quality assurance, and begin fulfilling remaining orders.
Risks and challenges
We know that execution is as important, if not more important, than the idea itself. Our team is 100% focused and committed to fulfilling all orders accurately and on time. Here are what we see as the potential risks and challenges:
SHIPPING: We are all aware of the risks in any logistical campaign that involves high volume shipping. Incoming shipments from our manufacturers and suppliers to our outgoing order fulfillment shipments all require the highest level of attention to detail and clear communication between all parties involved. We are well aware of these challenges and are working closely with multiple shipping providers to assure that we have the best execution possible in all aspects of shipping.
MANUFACTURING: We have focused the majority of our time over the couple years designing our product and sourcing manufacturers that can turn our dream into a reality. We are working with world class manufacturers with years of experience including one of the largest corrugated manufacturers in the United States to assure that your Instagate is made to the highest standards while keeping the price as affordable as possible.
PRODUCT IMPROVEMENT: While we believe we have an awesome go-to-market product ready for deployment, there is always room for improvement. We will focus our efforts on balancing making sure that you get the best designed Instagate possible while also making sure your deliveries are made on time.
We are very excited to begin mass production and get Instagates into your hands as soon as possible, but we are aware that we need to exercise a certain degree of caution so that if any unexpected surprises arise, we will be ready to address them and move forward in the best way possible. We are very much looking forward to making this a reality and with every dollar you donate, we get one step closer to revolutionizing tailgating!
