The time has come to unveil the most advanced and versatile laptop stand on the planet, The Crane Stand Elite. We need your help to get there.

  We are a very small and independent company that depends on supporters like you. With your help, we can get the tooling finished and complete the first run of production. In return, you will receive a host of gifts and be among the first to use this state-of-the-art Laptop Stand.

 Check out the awesome review by DJ Worx:

Here at Crane Hardware we subject our products to extreme conditions and testing. Check out how we test our gear : http://bit.ly/1kgjOGD

This is the re-launch of our Kickstarter campaign. We realized through tons of feedback that launching this during the Holidays was a mistake. Now, we will have more time to allow for everyone that wants to support to do so! You can also check us out at NAMM 2013 in Anaheim California and see the Elite in action!

We are proud to report that we were able to lower some of the costs associated with tooling AND we can now launch this product for much less than originally thought! This is due primarily to the tooling cost of the main locking component. We were able to find a factory that can tool for this part for almost half of the originally quoted price. 

Risks and challenges

In all manufacturing there can be delays, setbacks, and roadblocks caused by a host of unknown risks. However, in our time of designing, tooling up for, and manufacturing the previous Crane Hardware Products, we have tackled many of these issues before. We have the manufacturing experience and fulfillment infrastructure to overcome potential obstacles efficiently and in a reasonable amount of time. For this new Crane Stand Elite Project we already have tooling makers and manufacturing facilities in-line and waiting. We are confident that with our current resources we can continue to provide the very best products. Furthermore, we are proud that Crane Hardware is known for its exceptional level of customer service and we remain dedicated to our supporters. Our toll-free hotline can be routed directly to our mobile phones keeping us in constant contact with our fans.

    Crane Hardware Universal Cable Lock Alarm. The Screamer Lock by Crane Hardware
    This alarm lock features a couple of modes. One acts as a lock with a combination. The other mode is a motion sensor. Also, should the cable be cut a low voltage that runs through the cable is interrupted, triggering the 100dB alarm.
    The 2 included anchors are great for laptops and a variety of interfaces. Also great for bicycles and snowboards on roof racks!
