About

Lynx was designed for anyone who is faced with a closet of unkempt brooms, mops, buckets and other cleaning tools. It is our answer to the sloppy way we are now forced to buy and store cleaning tools in our homes.  We want to take that mess and make it so clean and appealing you might even leave it out for others to see.

Together with Prime Studio, a professional New York based design firm, we have refined and iterated on a design that would be both beautiful and easy to use. It combines the most essential cleaning tools into a kit that is easy to use and store.

Our innovation lies in the dock connectors, which allow a single pole to connect to any number of cleaning heads with ease (broom, mop, duster and more).

Simply click the pole into any cleaning head! One click and you are ready to clean as you normally would. When you’re done, just place it back in the dock and twist to disconnect. Rubberized feet keep the dock in place, with a removable tray for easy cleaning.

   Every Lynx dock Includes:

  • Dock - Clean and simple storage 
  • 3 Essential cleaning heads with custom connectors - Sponge Mop, Duster, and Broom
  • Microfiber dusting add-on (not shown in image)
  • Removable Tray
  • Pole - With built in innovative connection mechanism to securely connect to all lynx cleaning heads

We chose Kickstarter for its great community and innovators who take chances and appreciate the value in new ideas.

Your help will make possible:

1. Moulding - The process of building an injection mould for all the parts to be manufactured. We need to build and perfect the mould to make sure all of our kits work properly. This is something we have extensive experience in. We estimate this process to take 30 - 45 days.
2. Production - This will include all of the sets built for Kickstarter backers as well as initial stock following the campaign. Getting this product out to people is why we are here. With much excitement, we look forward to its arriving in homes around the world.
3. Patents & Trademarks - The unique design and function of Lynx means we need to protect it. We have already begun the patenting process in the USA and some other countries. We need additional funds to secure these patents as well as others around the world.

Risks and challenges

Most of the work is already done. Three years of work has gone into prototyping and refining the design. The design and function now work together better than we could have expected. We have fully working units and now need to get working on the expensive bits. Moulding is something we are familiar with and understand how to deal with any possible problems. Molds are made Steel Safe to ensure we get all the mechanisms working beautifully together. We are working very closely with our manufacturer and Prime Studio to ensure that any production hiccups can be dealt with swiftly.

All Kickstarter backers can expect regular updates during and after the campaign. We feel everyone deserves to know exactly how we are progressing. The feedback we receive from backers will be crucial in helping us to deliver the best possible product.

Design Changes: In the video we are using the latest sample. Here are some improvements you will see in the final box:

- Broom bristles will be longer and have a tighter pattern
- Final accent blue color will be improved to pantone 801c
- Mop will have removable sponge mopping pads for reusability/disposability
