About

THE STORY

Pablo and I are always looking to improve everything we do, whether it's at work, at the factory or having a barbecue for friends. That’s why we are so passionate about our new DIVOT TERMINATOR. We have invented lots of things, but none have brought so much fun to our Golf Game? LOL. ;)

We know how frustrated we feel get, and we imagine you feel the same, when we come onto the green of the golf course and find severa multiple divots poorly repaired, leaving bumps, etc. Thats why we felt so compelled to create a tool that perfectly and flawless fixes any divot, on any golf course, in just one simple step

DIVOT TERMINATOR came to life as a way for all golfers to find and leave the green in the best possible condition, as if it was never used before. With this invention you can cross out one thing that is not helping? you play your perfect round.

We want you to have your own DIVOT TERMINATOR as soon as possible. 

Here’s our plan to achieve that:

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Divot Terminator is the greatest divot tool ever engineered. With just one quick downward stroke you will effortlessly repair the divot and leave the green pain flat and smooth as the grounds keeper had intended.

The product features an ABS handle that is rubberized to provide a soft touch and solid grip, with 13 retractable metal pins designed to deliver the perfect green fix with a removable magnetic ball marker for personal branding and communication.

The tool head, where the magic happens, consists of 13 pins with a precisely engineered, radial arrangement, sized to match a golf ball and to optimal repair the divot it leaves. The tool is available in 12 colors, to match your look, and comes with 

  • Rubberized body, shiny ABS top
  • Metal pins
  • Removable ball marker

DIVOT TERMINATOR VALUE

  • Sized to match professional golf balls and their divots 
  • 13 specialized, retractable metal pins
  • Optimal length to avoid bending over with use
  • Robust, long-lasting materials
  •  Full Golf Ball Size: Simply press down once and repair the green to perfect match play condition.
  •  13 Metal pins: The perfect repair is done effortlessly as the pins enter just deep enough into the green to precisely level the playing surface by drawing up the compressed soil below.
  •  Size Matters: matched to the size of a full iron. Removing any need to bend over during use.
  •  Robust long lasting Materials: All of our materials are prime quality designed to last, so this is the the last divot fixer you will ever need to buy.

HOW DOES IT WORK

Divot Terminator works magically It's as easy as it can be and leaves the perfect green repair. All Golfer s know the frustration of a green that has holes or bumps because someone didn't fix the divot properly and sometimes other players try to fix it but they don't do it well or the tools they use is not easy to made a proper repair. With Divot Terminator Up you can't miss it. It's straight forward.

Only 4 steps are required.

  1. Buy it
  2. Place it in on top of the divot
  3. Press.
  4. Brag about it with your other golf friends…. 

Here are some design of our product. It's well design, measured and crafted in a way that never fails and only requires one push and its done.

The product has two key elements

  1.  The 13 pins have different sizes to allows the tool to enter the greenfield and retrieves 3 to 4 soil layers. 
  1. The pneumatic pressure of the spring has been measured in more than a 10.000 tests with different springs and materials to ensure the perfect balance in speed, strength and result.

THE DIVOT TERMINATOR WAS BORN

Playing Golf is a fantastic sports! You can play all day make friends and have fun. But what happens when you hit your perfect pitch get the ball into the green and on there way to the hole and bump to a bad divot….. that frustration is high!!

This happen to Pablo and he thought! There must be a way that someone can fix the divot properly every time.

That's when the idea come to his mind! Divot Terminator was born.

We search the web for existing product and even that we found some really cool ones, none of them really actually do the trick properly, either you have to do it 3 or 4 times or it just does not work.

The first draft was done really professionally in a napkin.

Our first product test was made with wood and nails to test the concept and off course was handcrafted by Pablo itself ;)

The second concept was built with water pipes, nail-arrow kind of thing and we in we introduce the first spring to test the pressure.

The third release was really close to the end product and it looked great, it worked perfect and was the first one we send out to friends to really test in different golf courses.

Risks and challenges

No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly. We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what I see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this quality is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds for a product of this quality and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility we're working with tooling manufacturers partners with a track record for prompt quality.

PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: As the DIVO UP gets geared up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced manufacturing partners. These will always be for the benefit of you, the consumer, and we will let you know exactly how and why any are made.

FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go awry that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of manufacturing setbacks we will enter the manufacturing stage with at least one back-up supplier for each component pre-located and my product commercialization experts will help ensure smooth sailing from our suppliers and factories.

We will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you, our DIVO UP customer.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make the DIVO UP idea a product by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.
