Pinnacle: The Simply Perfect Phone Stand

$5,139

We are Great Lakes Innovations and we've been working hard on a new product. We call it the Pinnacle Series stand and we know it will change the way you live!

We want you to be the first to get your hands on it. 

 

Two years of designing and countless prototypes have yielded the Pinnacle Series Stand; the companion your smartphone has always needed. Engineered for function, the Pinnacle elevates your device to the perfect viewing angle, smoothly rotates 360° for seamless viewing, and allows for charging. Pinnacle's solid base not only holds your device, but enables you to actually use it. No cumbersome suction cups or adhesives mean you can grab your smartphone and go. All this stability without damaging the surface it is being used on.

The Pinnacle Series is not only functional it is beautiful. Even without your device it makes a statement. Perfect for your office, kitchen or nightstand, you'll find yourself wanting one wherever life takes you.

Solid and stable. Pinnacle's solid metal base means it won't move when you use it. The base also has non-slip pads on the bottom so it will not mark and mar your surface. Pinnacle is designed to allow you to use your phone.

Charged Up. Pinnacle was designed to allow your device to be charging while you use. No running out of power when you need it most. Simply using your existing charging cord and power supply.

Perfect Viewing Angle. Each Pinnacle smoothly rotates 360º while elevating your device to ensure you can see the screen no matter where you are.  

Exclusive Kickstarter Backer Edition. Each Pinnacle stand will feature a special laser engraved Backer Edition and serial number. The sooner you back the lower the number you get. (Picture below is a concept, actual engraving may vary slightly.)

 

Made in Michigan. Every Pinnacle Series stand is precision machined from the highest quality materials in our manufacturing facility just outside Detroit. This means Pinnacle is "built for life." To us this means Pinnacle is not only of the highest craftsmanship and quality, but also engineered to make your life better and your days more productive.

 

We have designed three styles of Pinnacle, which will allow you to showcase your own style. Each style is designed to fit anywhere your life takes you. Pinnacle's sleek design transcends both time and place.

 

 

 

 

 

The hard work has been done. We've spent months, years actually, developing, testing, refining, and further testing to ensure you get nothing but the best.

Great Lakes Innovations is a small manufacturing business located just outside Detroit, Michigan. We enjoy developing simple solutions to some of life's complex problems. Although we are a small business, we have many BIG ideas.

In a world of consumerism and built-in obsolescence, we set ourselves apart by crafting products "built for life." To us this means our products are not only of the highest craftsmanship and quality, but also engineered to make your life better and your days more productive. Our products are built to last your lifetime and beyond. Good is not just enough for us. We keep working to make sure our products are better.

 

    

 

 

  

 

    

 

Risks and challenges

As we have 40 years of experience manufacturing quality products and components for a number of industries, we are confident in our ability to fulfill all backers by October of this year. We own and operate our own manufacturing facility so the production is under our control. We have planned production for the anticipated quantity of Pinnacle stands and can produce these in one or two months.

All that being said, we realize unpredictable things can happen during the production process and are fully committed to being completely transparent throughout the process. To accommodate a higher than anticipated demand, we already have some partnerships prepared to take on the production of additional Pinnacle stands.

Thank you for helping us bring Pinnacle to life.
