About this project
Introducing the world's smallest phone grip. The Hold Button is a tiny rubber button that sticks to any phone. The patent-pending design offers surprisingly secure grip to avoid drops. For iPhone, Android phones, and most cases. So much grip, you might even dare to go caseless!
It's surprising what a difference the Hold Button makes. After a few days of using the Hold Button, you'll discover lots of new ways to hold your phone one-handed while typing, tapping, and swiping.
The Hold Button creates a secure one-handed grip that totally frees your thumb to tap, type, and swipe. Two hands aren't required anymore.
You'll discover you can clamp your phone between the Hold Button and your palm's finger pads. This makes gravity-defying holds possible.
The patent-pending design allows it to hold on to a few other things for added convenience, like the edge of your laptop.
The Hold Button uses a 3M adhesive that's secure and removable whenever you want. We recommend the adhesive for one-time use, so you get three per pack.
Wanna take the Hold Button off, then put it back on? That's why we send you three per pack in a matchbox-style container. Save your extras for later, or share 'em with friends.
We designed and tested the Hold Button in Santa Monica, CA. The Hold Button and packaging are manufactured in the USA. For added peace of mind, consider that the Hold Button uses far less material than typical silicone phone cases, and our tiny recyclable packaging minimizes waste.
Questions or Feedback?
We'd love to hear from you. Please reach out with any questions about the Hold Button. After you receive your Hold Buttons, please let us know what you think. We're especially curious about all the new ways you hold your phone.
Domestic shipping is FREE. Yay! And we've included discounted shipping prices for popular Kickstarter countries. Please know that VAT/Duties may result from various country's local tax codes. These fees are the responsibility of the individual backer, and may be incurred upon receipt of your reward.
Some Final Thoughts
We use the Hold Button everyday. We really dig it, and so do our friends. The Hold Button is the world's simplest way to reduce drops with or without a case. However, the Hold Button doesn't totally eliminate drops, nor protect your phone if dropped.
We're discovering that our friends use the Hold Button in a variety of surprising ways--including hooking their phone on their laptop screen for Instagram stories, and hands-free pinched between their ear and shoulder. As we discover new ways to use it, we'll keep everyone updated via Kickstarter Updates and social media. Using the Hold Button can be magic, so let's have some fun.
Risks and challenges
We’re ready to produce a lot of Hold Buttons and deliver quickly to Kickstarter backers. We’ve already created 300+ prototypes with a U.S. manufacturer.
Regarding risks, we're focused on product quality and consistency. Our production Hold Button will be the best we've ever made. From material durometer to die-cutting specifications, our goal is simple: Deliver a product that customers love so much, they wanna tell their friends about it.
Regarding challenges, we're focused on a simple fulfillment process. As purchase totals increase, we have to scale our shipping & handling services. That’s why we’re keeping our Kickstarter process basic: Support our project, and we’ll send you some Hold Buttons. We’re avoiding unnecessary reward tiers (i.e., t-shirts, stickers, etc.) to help you start enjoying the Hold Button as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
