MEET NANOHOLD - NANOSUCTION FOR PHONES, CASES & TABLETS
With NanoHold, it's easy to stick your mobile device to many smooth, flat surfaces. NanoHold provides a new dimension in hands-free mobile device usage.
NanoHold is like having another person to hold your phone, allowing you to take better photos and use your mobile device in new and useful ways not possible before. With NanoHold, everyone can be in the picture.
Behind NanoHold's simple appearing exterior are decades of advanced materials design technology. While NanoHolds may look like simple pieces of plastic, they are powerful and can hold hundreds of times their own weight.
NanoHold material has microscopic suction "cups" on its surface. Because they use suction, NanoHolds stick without being sticky. NanoSuction does not leave a residue.
Each NanoHold is engineered with 5 layers:
NanoHolds have two sides, the top side with nanosuction (blue in the diagram) and the bottom side with adhesion (red in the diagram). The bottom side of each NanoHold holds tightly to your device. NanoHolds are shipped with a protective liner on both sides that must be removed to use the product.
WHAT WILL NANOHOLDS STICK ON? NanoHolds stick on many clean, flat, smooth, dry, non-porous surfaces including:
WILL NANOHOLD WORK WITH MY DEVICE OR CASE? NanoHolds work best on devices with flat backs or with flat cases.
CAN I TAKE THE NANOHOLD OFF MY DEVICE ONCE IT HAS BEEN INSTALLED? Yes. NanoHolds are removable.
WHAT COLOR ARE NANOHOLDS? NanoHolds come in black or white. You can have any color you like, as long as it is black or white.
CAN NANOHOLDS BE USED WITH TABLETS? Yes. Just use two or more NanoHolds depending on the size of your tablet.
WILL NANOHOLDS WORK ON HORIZONTAL SURFACES TOO? NanoHolds work like an anti-slip pad when laid flat, to help prevent your device from moving around or falling. By holding tightly to the surface, NanoHolds can also keep toddlers from moving your phone.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY NANOHOLD? NanoHolds come with a cover to protect them and extend their life. Clean and rejuvenate your NanoHold by wiping it with a damp cloth or paper towel and allowing it to dry. You can also use cellophane tape (like Scotch brand Tape) for a waterless method to clean the surface of NanoHolds.
CAN I USE MY OWN PROTECTIVE COVER WITH NANOHOLD? Yes. Choose your favorite object that is the size of a credit card. A laminated, plastic, or glossy object works best. Examples of covers can be ID cards, photos, business cards, hotel room keys, etc. Use your imagination and make your NanoHold even more fun. A two sided cover is provided with each Nanohold - one side is white, one side is black.
CAN YOU PRINT CUSTOM ARTWORK ON THE COVERS? Yes, for order amounts of 250 units or more, we can print custom four color images on the cover. You supply the print ready art. Great for promoting your business or organaization, school fundraising projects and swag giveaways at conventions. There is no better endorsement for your business than to have your image on the back of a customer's smartphone. For larger amounts, contact us at email@example.com.
HOW LONG WILL NANOHOLDS LAST? NanoHolds keep suction power over time when kept clean and undamaged. Cared for NanoHolds will last many months to years. By cleaning your NanoHold with a damp cloth or paper towel, you can repeatedly rejuvenate and indefinitely extend the life of your NanoHold.

Will NanoHolds interfere with induction charging, WIFI or other wireless functions? NanoHolds will not interfere with induction charging, and actually helps by keeping your device from coming off the induction charger accidentally. NanoHolds will not interfere with WIFI, Bluetooth, NFC, or other wireless functions of your device.
Does temperature affect NanoHolds? NanoHolds work in normal living temperatures from 0° C/32° F to 120° F/50° C.
What surfaces will not work with NanoHolds? NanoHolds will not work on wet or oily surfaces or surfaces that are uneven, dirty, or porous. Certain chemicals or solvents can damage NanoHolds. Unsure of your surface or suction contact? Exercise caution before letting go of your device.
What is the "NanoHold" Test"? Use the “NanoHold Test” to assess the suction contact with a slight pull on the device, like checking a suction cup for suction. The device should adhere tightly to and not come off of the surface. Do not let go of your device if it does not pass the “NanoHold Test” or if there is any doubt about whether there is sufficient suction to hold the device.
Will NanoHold always work? Test your application. Make sure the condition of the NanoHold, the surface chosen, and the suction contact are sufficient to support the device for the amount of time you plan on NanoHold supporting the device. NanoHolds stick temporarily, and like all suction devices, the duration of suction cannot be predicted. Use NanoHolds responsibly and at your own risk. Be smart and enjoy your NanoHolds safely.

Risks and challenges
Because NanoHold is a product with worldwide reach and demand, Kickstarter funds will help us with needed upgrading of our website to feature all major languages on web pages and video voiceovers, improving our current retail package design, and streamlining the order fulfillment process. Kickstarter funds will also allow materials acquisition in sufficient wholesale quantity so that we can maintain a quality product at a low price with free shipping worldwide. Sourcing bulk materials, tooling & die cutting, and shipping have all been worked out. Patent and trademark filings have been done. Thank you Kickstarter backers for pushing NanoHold to goal in JUST 3 DAYS!! Then you helped us reach our Stretch Goal of $15,000, and 500+% of our Goal!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
