CableKeeps secure your USB docking cable to the power adaptors of iPads, iPhones, & iPods keeping them tangle free and organized.

CableKeeps is funded and moving into Production!

Thank you to everyone who backed us.  We couldn't do it without you!  If you missed our KickStarter campaign you can order CableKeeps at Nice, Inc. We'll have inventory shortly after we ship to our backers.  

Stay updated on news and events for this project and Nice via: Twitter & Facebook or sign up for our mailing list and we'll alert you through email or text message.  

CableKeeps™ give your dull white transformer some personality and added utility.  They secure your USB docking cable to Apple power adaptors used with iPads, iPhones, & iPods so cable & charger stay together.  The intuitive design will keep your cables tangle free when shoved in a bag, pocket, or purse and can shorten and organize when plugged into the wall.  Goldie features a secondary function as a charging pedestal for iPhones & iPods. 

The Story - After the success of PadPivot on KickStarter it was clear in my mind that I wanted to do something totally different.  I wanted to do a premium product that was designed right here in my own backyard and was as socially and environmentally conscience as we could make it.  Anybody who creates wants to explore new palettes and canvases and that's what your support on KickStarter would help me to do.  Josh Greene of Service-Works fame said it best, "Artists don't effect change, they plant seeds to get people thinking".  With your support we can accomplish a little of both.

Product Details:  Each CableKeep is produced locally in Woodinville, WA, USA and minimally packaged in environmentally friendly materials.  We're molding these out of a Santoprene rubber so they can flex and fit snug.   If we can make it over the $50k mark we'll offer these in more color options and personalize further.

Our Plan . . .  We've been working with our local manufacturer this last month to prepare the final design for production. The 3D files are complete and ready. So once our funding goal is reached we'll hit GO and start the mold making process.  

So what's the Money for? - In order to make CableKeeps™ durable, high quality, and cost-effective we need to injection mold the parts. This means expensive steel molds - cha ching!   We've been covering all the costs for prototypes and design up to this point, but now we've come to the place where we need your help. The money we raise will go directly into purchasing the tooling plus pay for parts, packaging, and shipping plus help move our new brand "Nice" along a little further.

If we can reach the $50k mark we'll be able to offer a palette of color choices.  So share out this project with friends and family to be able to personalize CableKeeps further.

The Team - CableKeeps™ were conceived by Jim Young and detailed by Christine Park as part of a new adventure called Nice.  Nice creates and manufactures premium design products from the studios of James Arthur Young Designs. (www.nicebydesign.com)
