Cloop is easy, fast and portable. Keep cables untangled!
Cloop is easy, fast and portable, keep cables untangled! Ideal solution for earbuds, cell phone chargers and usb cables.
Do you constantly hassle with tangled and messy cables? Keep it simple with Cloop!
Cloop is a creative personal project that began in 2013. Cloop is a cable companion band that helps keep your cables untangled while in transport and use.
We are in an early stage and this is reflected in our pricing. Through supply chain improvements and incorporating an automated online store, we are hoping to reduce pricing at a second stage.
Cloop is a patent pending product.

How it works
Cloop features an elastic silicon band along with two strong magnetic ends that provide a quick locking and release mechanism. Additionally, the band includes a cable passage to always keep the Cloop in place and readily available to use at any time.
Cloop is very easy to use. Simply insert the cable through the passage, hold the Cloop in your hands and bundle the cable around it. Finally, snap the two magnetic ends and that's it. The band will always stay attached to your earbuds or cables so you don't need to worry about losing or searching for the Cloop every time you need it.
Warning: Choking hazard. Not a toy. Uses embedded magnets.
We used several years of product design experience and numerous hours of 3D CAD software design to engineer Cloop.
We developed more than eight fully functional prototypes using several techniques, including 3D printing and low-cost plastic molds. We also performed systematic tests on several materials to find the specification that rendered an optimum cost and performance ratio.
Cloop is compatible with a wide variety of cable diameters including earbuds, typical USB cables for iPhone, iPad and tablets in general. It is elastic enough to work on some laptop power supply cables, small in-home appliances, TV and game console cables.
Special Metal Pack
This special pack gives you a metallic Cloop that you can use as a base on your desktop to attach your cables and keep them organized and always within your reach.
We have already invested in several aspects of the project including website, design, legal services and materials. We will use the funds to complete payment of some of the initial expenses required. Below is the estimated budget distribution:
·75% Mold, Cloop production and packaging sourcing
·10% Legal services
·9% Testing tools
·3% Online Marketing
·3% Artwork, Photography, Graphic Design

We'll do our best to keep the timeline proposed. However, we are subject to many uncertainties. Associated risks and challenges are described below.
Cloop wants to help other Kickstarter projects and is now participating in the http://kickingitforward.org program.
Risks and challenges
Cloop is a patent pending new product category that we are trying to make available to the masses for the first time. This can bring unexpected startup delays due to numerous factors including unexpected manufacturing startup problems, customs, shipping and logistics issues.
We have done extensive design and final prototype tests including silicone and magnet performance to meet our final product specifications. Also, we have an excellent relationship with a contract manufacturing and sourcing agency with representation in U.S. and China. The agency can monitor the manufacturing at all stages and thus increase the chances of a smooth production.
We will have an open communication through the Kickstarter, our Blog site and social media channels to keep you informed about the manufacturing status.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
