      I've used my iPad and iPhone CableKeeps all over the country this summer. Everywhere I go, people ask me where they came from. What a great product! Road-warrior worthy and good looking to boot.

    2. Creator Ian Stearns on August 7, 2012

      Jim just a quick thank you, I really am loving my CableKeeps and use them everyday! One thing my wife suggested is it would be nice to have something like this for the Macbook Power supplies, it would help keep things tidy and keep the power brick from getting scratched on the floor. Maybe a modified whale shape? just a thought/suggestion for you.

      @Joao - sorry you haven't received the product. Email us at

    4. Creator John Calistro on July 24, 2012

      Hi Jim, I did not receive mine yet. :(
      Could you have the tracking # to send me?


    5. Creator Jim Young on June 27, 2012

      Excellent! Glad to hear that Tobster.

    6. Creator Tobster on June 26, 2012

      Hi Jim. CableKeeps received. They look great! Thanks for following up.

    7. Creator Jim Young on May 25, 2012

      @Tobster - we're looking into it. I remember personally packing your order because it was the only one to South Korea.

    8. Creator Tobster on May 25, 2012

      I have yet to receive my pledge. can you please check my message I sent.

    9. Creator Jim Young on May 22, 2012

      @Max - your welcome to fillet our fish, but be nice. These critters have feelings.

    10. Creator Max Ziebell on May 20, 2012

      oh... my fishy is hurt! But still can swim… just gave the cut-out (mentioned before) some polish with my rasp. I know… I am every designers worst nightmare. :-)

    11. Creator Max Ziebell on May 20, 2012

      The Cablekeeps finally arrived but for me didn't work. Well the cable wraps around but I was looking forward to lay my IPhone on top of them as it always is on the floor up till now. Well that didn't work thanks to the silly fish-tail-slope. I rather have something functional. Well I had to get creative : (WITH MY KNIFE). Fail!

    12. Creator RMP on May 15, 2012

      Not USPS's fault I would think. Boxes tend to get crushed during transport when packed in envelopes. The important thing is the cable keeps arrived in one piece and they're lovely!

    13. Creator Lester Chan on May 14, 2012

      Blogged about it

      The boxes I got was pretty damaged thanks to USPS!

    14. Creator Jim Young on May 14, 2012

      @Tobster - Yes, should have received a confirmation email when shipped. Shoot me a message at and we'll check it out.

    15. Creator Tobster on May 14, 2012

      Are we supposed to receive confirmation of shipment?

    16. Creator Lester Chan on May 14, 2012

      I got my unit today!

    17. Creator RMP on May 13, 2012

      Got it yesterday in Norway.

      I will definitely be buying more of these!

      Just point me at the website!

    18. Creator Jonathan M on May 9, 2012

      Got mine yesterday ;)) looks Sweeet
      I sent you an email Jim regarding a small issue

    19. Creator jonathan platteau on May 9, 2012

    20. Creator Jim Young on May 8, 2012

      Everything has shipped. Already receiving a few returns and will contact you for an alternate address if that happens. We had about a dozen backers that didn't fill out the Address Survey. You will be contacted if we didn't get your info or reward selection.

    21. Creator Vasanth Subramanian on May 8, 2012

      I also haven't received any shipping confirmation. Still waiting...

    22. Creator Adam King on May 8, 2012

      I still haven't received any shipping confirmation email yet either. Have all rewards been shipped?

    23. Creator Jonathan M on May 6, 2012

      Has all the rewards shipped out? Still didn't get a shipping confirmation email.

    24. Creator Josh Wright & June Lai on May 4, 2012

      Got my Gulp CableKeep! Looks, feels and works great. I sincerely love the humor and warmth in all elements of your design, packaging and instructions. Really great work. Thank you for this, I love it. :-)

    25. Creator Brett Rothenberg on May 3, 2012

      Got my set of 3! love it! Please let me know if you have something for the 45w Macbook air adapter.

    26. Creator Elie on May 2, 2012

      Thanks Jim, I love it!

    27. Creator Jim Young on May 1, 2012

      Glad you like it Quijana. Send them to to get their own!

    28. Creator Quijana Byrd on May 1, 2012

      My Nibbles arrived two days ago. I unpacked them and a friend noticed them sitting on my table. "Wow, where can I get these?" was the immediate comment. They look wonderful. Now I just have to figure out where I left my charger. If only there was a way to make it more visible.... Thank you for a great product!

    29. Creator Darrell Kok-Fang Loo on May 1, 2012

      got it it!

    30. Creator Jim Young on April 30, 2012

      @Jean-Claude Thanks for the comment. Next project is coming soon enough. I was up till midnight last night completing part of it. You backers will get first crack at the initial release reward.

    31. Creator Jean-Claude Landau on April 30, 2012

      Got my Keeps Today, love them, and as other people have said already, "Where is your next project...I cannot find it yet on kickstarter so I can pledge for it... what's the hold-up ! :))) "

    32. Creator K.W. on April 30, 2012

      Got a Goldie and a Nibble today! Great product! Definitely a tight fit for both- but I'd rather have that problem than a loose fit.

    33. Creator bronwen on April 30, 2012

      Just got my Goldie today! Love it! Nice work, and I'm happy for you that it all turned out well in the end.

    34. Creator Rose Vines on April 28, 2012

      @Jim - Bring on the next project. :-)

    35. Creator Jim Young on April 27, 2012

      @Rose - Glad you love them Rose! Thanks again for your support. You guys ready for another project yet?

    36. Creator Rose Vines on April 27, 2012

      Two Goldies and two Nibbles just arrived and I already love them. One Goldie was a little stiff to get on, but persistence paid off. The other three slid on more easily. They have a great solid feel, despite their light weight. Thanks for your work; I'm very glad to have invested in this project.

    37. Creator Jim Young on April 27, 2012

      @Sami - Glad you love them. It feels so good to see these going out to happy backers!!

    38. Creator Sami Laine on April 27, 2012

      Mine arrived today in CA, got two Goldies and two Nibbles. Fit is great, both work great. Thanks Kickstarter and thanks Jim for hanging in there!

      Only nibble (no pun intended): the image on retail packaging of red Goldie is more of an orange as opposed to the actual red plastic, color matching is hard.

    39. Creator Paul Selby on April 26, 2012

      Received my shipment notification today. Excited to see this product come to life!

    40. Creator Nathalie Adams on April 21, 2012


    41. Creator Jim Young on April 21, 2012

      We started shipping this weekend!! You'll get a confirmation email when your package label is printed and finished prep. We'll alert everyone when we've shipped the last ones.

    42. Creator Jim Young on April 16, 2012

      @Everyone - thanks for the amazing support - we're through the fire and shipping soon
      @Tamas - thanks for the tip on a new molder

    43. Creator Lois Dirkes on April 12, 2012

      I understand your frustration. Thanks for keeping it in the US. I'm not certain that it would be any better any other place.
      Hang in there and don't worry---easy to say and hard to do

    44. Creator Ira Rush on April 12, 2012

      I feel your pain, hang in there. Sometimes simple looking projects are the hardest... As far as getting the product, I trust it will come and I can tell your very close on producing!

    45. Creator Tamas Kovacs on April 12, 2012

      I don't think anyone is charged unless they ship product. Manufacturing can be frustrating; I know from recent experience.

      Jim - if you are having so much trouble with your injection molding, you might want to try Caroba Plastics ( ) and talk to Jason Spratt or Carl Hart. They know what they are doing.


    46. Creator Luis Eduardo Garcia Diaz on April 8, 2012

      I think we lost our money

    47. Creator bronwen on April 7, 2012

      please give us an update

    48. Creator Randall Kane on April 6, 2012

      Are you guys kidding? It has been seven months since this was promised to ship, there have been no updates, and you DON'T RESPOND TO EMAIL. Are You for real or should I come to terms with the fact that I have thrown $50 away?! Please PLEASE respond.

    49. Creator Clint Hardison on April 5, 2012

      Have they shipped yet?

    50. Creator James Hanlon on April 4, 2012

      It's going on seven months since you met your goal ... about time to get a product out the door, isn't it? What is the current status?
