About this project

How many times have you missed a call because you can’t get your phone out of your purse, pocket, even holster in time?  

We all have our phone frustrations.  As an avid jogger and rollerblader, mine is having to carry my phone in my hand.  I’ve tried the armbands, holsters, all sorts of crazy carrying options but they mostly got in the way of enjoying my sport and nothing gave me the instant access and freedom I needed.

So, I came up with a solution of my own. 

The Mag Hook.

The Mag Hook has two main components:

A magnetic case for the phone;
A magnetic band – very flexible and comfortable – that secures to your waist with a clip.
 

The simple, yet ingenious system of fix and click allows the Mag Hook to be quickly and securely attached to your waist band, providing a one-handed operation that's ideal for everyone, it’s even secure enough for jogging.

A small magnetic band covered in soft fabric slips under your waistband and secures with a clip. This magnetic band couples with a companion magnetic smartphone case. You simply slip and click!

The thin magnetic band is a piece of flexible plastic measuring 5 inches long and 7/8” inches wide covered with soft performance material for maximum comfort.

The smartphone case will be made of an impact resistant plastic interior and covered with a soft silicone exterior. The magnetic material is attached to the back of the plastic interior.
Easy one handed access and storage.
Easy one handed access and storage.

The initial production will be limited to the IPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus models. Future plans will expand to include other popular brand cases. 

Right now the Mag Hook is a working patent pending prototype. Your funds will be used for final design review, tooling, and manufacturing. Help us move the Mag Hook from prototype to product with your pledge. After your pledge please help spread the word about our project using the “share this project” button. Let your friends know what you’re backing!

Risks and challenges

As a former Plant Manager I’m very aware that challenges and delays can happen when rolling out a new product. The good news is the Mag Hook is very simple in its design and simplicity definitely helps minimize quality control issues. The size of the order can obviously also impact our timeline. If problems do occur that affect the shipping schedule we’ll let you know about it. After all we couldn’t do this without you! With your support you will help us turn a patent pending prototype into a tangible and cool product.

Kickstarter will release backer funds about two weeks after the campaign ends. At that time we will get the ball rolling with our suppliers and manufacturing partners.
