What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

The QuickIT (TM)

Building on my previous successes, I'm proud to bring you the QuickIT (TM). This multi function cord tool is made from high quality, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 aluminum. It's very quick and to use and is sized perfectly to work with 550 paracord or other cords the same size or smaller. 
Use it to quickly secure:
  • Tent lines
  • Tarp lines
  • Bug nets
  • Outdoor projector screens
  • Cargo
  • Canopies
  • Fishing rigs
  • Flags
  • Signs
  • Banners
  • Clotheslines
  • Sleeping bags
  • Kites
  • Ballons
  • And more!
It's easy to set and adjust. Keep several of them in your daypack, bug out bag, disaster preparedness kit, first aid kit, vehicle, backpack, tackle box... basically everywhere.  Tie up a sleeping bag, hang a bear bag or use it to help apply a tourniquet... it will work. Use it as a hook to fish out your keys from a street drain or use it as a trigger for a trap, water balloon launcher or trebuchet.  Use it to store your cord in a nice compact package. Yep... It can do that too.  The QuickIT (TM) is similar to a cleat that can be used anywhere on the cord. Seriously... I'm still discovering more uses for the QuickIT (TM) and I'm very excited to bring it to you! I know you'll love it!
During the campaign, the QuickIT (TM) is being offered to backers at a 10% discount under what I expect them to retail for.  As an added bonus for you believing in the QuickIT (TM), the higher the package you select, the more you save!  The "Byte" package is the best value with the deepest discount!
Take a look at just some of the most common uses.

Risks and challenges

The QuickIT (TM) is my 3rd KickStarter project. It's built on the foundations of two successful campaigns. I continuously refine my processes and have partnered with US based manufacturers for the QuickIT (TM) production and high quality paracord. While there's always some risks, I've commissioned test runs of parts to refine the design and production process mitigating as much risk as possible.
