About

UPDATE: We've canceled this campaign but continue our pursuit to bring the Collar Keeper to market!  

For the latest on the Collar Keeper, visit our website. If you'd like to know if we re-launch, please subscribe to our email list or follow us on Facebook. Thank you!

Our video and pictures feature homemade prototypes that were handy for proof of concept. A successful Kickstarter campaign will bring you this new, sleek design! 

The Collar Keeper (patent pending) is a simple invention - a hanger with an extension and two clips - designed to make it easy to hang collared shirts properly and keep your closet neat!
 

When we designed the Collar Keeper we wanted to make it as easy as possible - one hand holds the hanger and the other slides the collar into the clips.  SIMPLE!  

If you're tired of buttoning your shirts, you're not alone!  In a survey, 81% of respondents reported that they find it annoying to button the shirt when hanging; of those surveyed, 34% find it either very annoying or so annoying that they don't button it at all.

Do you balance your shirt on your knee, on your chest, under your chin, or in your mouth to clasp that top button?  Maybe you lay it on the bed or a dresser? What a pain!!! We've even heard of ongoing marital disputes around whose job it is to button shirts after they have been laundered. Well, not anymore!

We set out to design a hanger for collared shirts, but soon realized it's utility extends to a variety of button-up, zip-up, or split neck tops!  

Use the Collar Keeper on dress shirts, polo shirts, golf shirts, blouses, flannels, fleeces, jackets, vests, and more!  

Some people don't bother buttoning, and we get it!  Unfortunately, those nice collars will go flat. Preserve the life of your clothes with the Collar Keeper!

If you do not button your collared shirts when hanging, not only do they fall off the hanger, but your collars get droopy. The Collar Keeper gently clasps each collar leaf, keeping your collars upright and crisp.

Risks and challenges

We have already partnered with a manufacturer who has finalized our CAD design and is ready to begin tooling for our mold. If we succeed in obtaining our funding goal then we will begin tooling and proceed with manufacturing. We are confident that we can deliver our product quickly and appropriately. Unexpected problems with the Collar Keeper production process may delay reward delivery. As we continue to proceed with the project, we will update our backers on the progress of our product, production, and shipping related news as soon as we have them.
