About

If you’ve got an electronic device with a cord, you’ve probably had this happen... Fraying... Splitting... The death of a vital part of your technology. If you can’t charge, or you can’t sync, your device is pretty much useless.

SpryngThing was conceived as a way to combine all the great cord fix ideas out there into one simple, effective, and efficient product. Here’s why it’s the perfect solution:

  • It’s designed specifically for your cords.
  • It’s made of materials appropriate to the task.
  • It requires no tools or special skills to install, use, or remove.
  • It’s transferrable (from one cable to another).

SpryngThing is made from the best PVC plastic on Earth. It’s both lead and phthalate free, making it the most environment friendly PVC out there. The PVC filament used to make SpryngThing is also CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2007)-compliant.

SpryngThing is about as USA as you can get. It’s made right here in the USA by a US Army veteran (that’s me) using materials, packing, and shipping from the US as well.
 

As we start to make money with SpryngThing, we’re giving some of that money back 15% to be exact. 5% of our profits will go back into other Kickstarter projects, 5% of our profits will go to programs that help out our military veterans, and 5% will go into educational scholarships.
 

Now, SpryngThing won’t repair or fix your old cables, but it will help keep your new ones in like-new condition. And if the damage to your old cables isn’t too severe, a little colored electrical tape and a SpryngThing will do the trick until you can get a new cable. Then just transfer your SpryngThing to the new one.
 

SpryngThing in action - doin' its thing!
SpryngThing in action - doin' its thing!

For the past few months, I have been hard at work developing and testing SpryngThing, with the goal of making SpryngThing available online, accessible to everyone around the world.

Now I need YOUR help! The initial goal is $10,000, and the money we raise here will cover the final precision measurements of several cables, engineering & tooling, initial production costs, creating the packaging, and moving from a provisional patent to a fully patented product. Should there be the opportunity for stretch goals, they will be glorious...

Thanks for checking out my project!

Risks and challenges

I don't anticipate any major risks or challenges, but just in case, I've got a group of friends and family with legal, financial, small business, manufacturing, and operational management experience waiting to help out, should the need arise. I've also got a business plan & product release timeline close at hand to help keep things on track.
