Important!!! PAD ASSEMBLY

Hey backers! If you don't have yours yet, hang in there because I'm on a roll!!! The warehouse just sent a bunch out on Friday. HERE'S THE DEAL:

In order to speed things up I have not assembled the pads! This part takes a long time in to assemble 2,500 units so I thank you for assembling 2 of them for me :-) Please follow this to properly place the foam on the backing and the NanoSuction layer on top. BE CAREFUL to place properly... ALSO, I got samples of the gum rubber silicone mentioned in the comments and will be sending it to people for free who would like to try it in place of the NanoSuction. I'll be setting up a survey monkey page soon so be on the lookout! The stuff works GREAT on literally anything - walls, any case, textures, etc.. I'm excited about it, things are moving ahead.

 If you haven't received yours yet, you will have to follow these steps, as the remaining rewards will arrive without the pads put together. Again, this was simply for time's sake and thank you for taking a couple of minutes to complete this step for me!!!

Post Kickstarter Changes

Hi backers,

Just a quick update to keep you all in the loop looking forward. As many of you know, one of the biggest benefits of Kickstarter from a creator's perspective is the invaluable feedback received on the first run of a product. Here are the new production samples that will be going on the market in December - they're still samples so they're not 100%, but I wanted you to see some of the changes based on your feedback!

P.S. We're very close to having every reward out, if you don't have yours in hand right now it will be very soon. Thank you so much for your patience!

Also, I'm trying to figure out the best way to hook up the original backers with the new and improved products that we'll be distributing - I will keep you posted, but know that I want to do whatever I can to get you the final and retail ready versions of the product that you helped create and make happen. More pictures will be coming as I receive additional production samples... Thanks again :-)

Just wanted to address some questions that have been asked multiple times. Check out the 45 second video below for some quick tips and to get started... also, we're on a good roll getting items shipped. That means if you don't have it already, it's either on its way now or very shortly. That being said, it doesn't get to your door faster if you ask where it is repeatedly - in fact, it takes longer to get there because that means I have to read and possibly write back telling you that it's on its way. Thank you for the support and awesomeness everyone!!!

Update #20

Update

Hello backers,

I'm well aware that an update is overdue and thanks again for your continued support. We are literally putting the finishing touches on the remaining Gekko Stands to be sent out, which will be set 100% no doubt about it, by September 30th. 

There will be a highly detailed explanation given as to why we're a couple months late as soon as things slow down for me a bit. In a nutshell, we've had manufacturing obstacles with our NanoSuction pads... the pad backing was breaking during the assembly process due to inferior acrylic pieces. That took 7 weeks to get worked out. In the meantime we've been assembling the rest of the components and we're almost done with every pad backing assembly now. 

Yes, we have been shipping out rewards but a bad batch of product really slowed us down. I'm getting it done and have learned a lot in this process. Another thing that slowed us down was our warehouse/assembly area that was compromised due to a leasing issue with a friend of mine. The operation is now 100% in my garage and that took some time to move everything and get it setup again. 

Again, thank you so much to those of you keeping positive with me. I know the conversations on here and social media can be heated, but I appreciate getting a message that says "I get it and keep going." I want to stress again that I completely understand why some of you are mad, I've had $600 rewards arrive 8 months late and I certainly was mad as well. 

Attached are some photos, which are also LONG overdue, of our operation. I am working as quickly as I can and I am grateful to each and every one of you. Thank you!

Update #19

2.0 Postponement and Shipping

Hello backers,

First of all, as always, thank you for your continued support. And even more importantly to those of you who haven't received your reward yet, thank you for your patience!!! We have decided, due to a few factors, that it would be best to postpone the Gekko Stand 2.0 campaign. Our main concern for us is to keep our backers happy, and a lot of backers were upset that we launched 2.0 before delivering every original reward. We'll now be able to transfer all of our attention on the remaining assembly and shipping on the original rewards.

The time conflict is also a large concern, because I have accepted a job offer as a Product Designer with a large manufacturing and distribution company. They will be taking care of the Gekko Stand's distribution, sales and manufacturing immediately following the commencement of our reward fulfillment. So, the good news is that you will be seeing the Gekko Stand on the shelf and in stores within a few months! I wouldn't be in this position without all of your support and I can't thank you enough!

Thank you all so much for the support and we look forward to sending you an update regarding how you can get the new attachments ASAP!

If you haven't received your reward yet, it is coming soon. Again, we'll have every single reward shipped by the end of the month. Thanks again everyone!

Dwight
