A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Cloop® is an elegant magnetic cable keeper, which serves as a cable management solution for people on-the-go. We are back with the new Cloop XL! which is specifically designed to help you keep your medium to large sized cables neat and tangle free. Patent Pending. USPTO application 14/611,254, and PCT International application PCT/US16/12538. US priority date of February 10, 2014.
Cloop® keeps your cables quickly organized and ready to go!
Keep your cables tidy to easily access them
Always have your cables ready to use
Simply snap to keep your cables untangled and organized
No more untangling knots
No more messy cables
No more cables going to that dark place behind your desk
We have surpassed our 45K stretch goal! Now all Cloop backers receive a FREE Cloop! :o)
Cloop XL lets you stay organized so you can quickly retrieve the cable you need. We all have busy lives so don't waste it untangling.
We have listened to our previous backers and have created Cloop XL with new and improved features designed especially for larger cables.
So what’s new about Cloop XL?
Cloop® is easy, convenient and fast! Save time, get organized and stay on-the-go!
Hate having to wrap Velcro around too many times? With Cloop you only have to tie it around once and hear that snap!
We have carefully designed Cloop XL to offer you more capabilities to tackle your larger cables. We have given Cloop XL an elegant and more powerful closure mechanism with stronger Neodymium magnets. This, together with a high-quality silicone that is more elastic, will allow Cloop XL to fit many cable profiles. The silicone material makes Cloop safe, durable and very resistant to frequent use. Also, the silicone will not stain your cables.
The magnets are embedded to avoid scratching your other accessories and to prevent them from coming out. Nonetheless, this doesn’t prevent you from attaching Cloop to your bag, clothes or anchoring it to a metallic surface.
The cable passage keeps your Cloop attached at all times so you don't have to worry about losing it. It also facilitates easier cable wrapping. Patent Pending
Cloop XL uses strong neodymium magnets and a new closure design. See below, it holds up to 4.9 lbs (2.2 kg) weight before opening.
We have done numerous prototypes and testing using our own 3D printed molds to optimize the new Cloop XL design.
Cloop XL’s new design is not only elegant but also includes detailed features optimal for its purpose.
Our earliest priority date for our U.S. nonprovisional patent application (14/611,254) is February 10th, 2014. And our invention was conceived of even before that priority date. We also have a PCT international patent application (PCT/US16/12538).
Cloop XL is the perfect organization companion for your bathroom accessories!
Cloop XL Tackles Those Power Cords
We didn’t forget about Cloop XL’s younger siblings. Now Cloop Small and Large 2.0 come with a more elastic silicone and we have also updated the Cloop Large profile for more enclosure capability.
Now, with the complete Cloop® family you have three different sizes and a numerous range of applications. Your imagination is the limit!
Cloop Family Size Comparison
With its 115 mm of length Cloop XL is 155% larger than Cloop Large and 213% than its youngest sibling Cloop Small.
Cloop is compact, but it elongates to wrap differents cables profiles!

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING
We started Cloop as an idea we had to remedy a common daily problem we encountered while traveling for business - messy cables that we had to sit and untangle before the plane even touched up off the ground, etc. We realized we had a similar problem at home with cables and cords that took up far too much drawer space, chargers that we had to sidestep and constantly pick up off the floor. We launched a successful crowdfunding campaign in April 2015. We surpassed our goal by 180%, which helped us open our online store to reach the online market.
It has been an amazing journey and we're committed to the evolution of this product! We received amazing feedback from our backers last year for our small and large Cloops. But we've heard your requests to develop an even larger Cloop for those even larger cables you have around the house.
Cloop is Patent Pending and International PCT registered.
