We love our Apple AirPods. Between calls, podcasts and talking to our friend Siri, they are constantly in use. But all this love is meaningless, if we can’t find them. We thought about how we could attach AirPods to the items we carry throughout our day, but couldn’t find what we considered a great solution – so we made it. Introducing Anchor, an innovative carry solution utilizing the Lightning Port to connect your AirPods Charging Case to just about anything.
To attach Anchor, a carabiner was needed, but again we couldn’t find what we wanted – so we made that too. In fact, we made two of them.
BUT WON'T IT FALL OFF? NOPE.
Our proprietary connector maximizes Anchor’s attachment strength without doing harm to your AirPods. We have tested, measured and analyzed. In fact, Anchor can support more than 15x the weight of AirPods and Charging Case. Gravity alone will not detach Anchor from your AirPods, swinging forcefully or pulling with intent will.
WE WILL BE SHIPPING IN 30 DAYS
We have Spent the last year doing all of the hard work before launching this project. We have designed every component, have the supply chain selected and tooling is being manufactured now. You will have your Anchors in time for the holidays, just in time for gifting... your friends and family will think you are the most thoughtful person they have ever known.
PURPOSEFUL. ELEGANT. SECURE.
Our mission was to deliver a convenient carry solution to complement Apple's design and promote ease-of-use. After thousands of hours of design, prototyping and testing - Anchor was born.
Anchor clicks into the Lightning port with a proprietary connector and features high strength composite wings to help prevent side load damage.
Titanium's unique combination of incredible strength and lightness make it the ideal material for the most demanding applications. It's been used on space missions, race cars and medical devices, now it can be in your hands. We utilized Titanium's flexible properties to create one-piece carabiner with an integrated spring.
MAKE IT MINE WITH ANODIZED ZINC ALLOY
For those looking to personalize, we offer our Anodized Zinc Alloy carabiner in four colorways. Compliment your Anchor to the devices you love in beautiful silver, grey, black or rose gold. Leave a comment and let us know which other colors you might like!

THE KICKSTARTER COMMUNITY - WE'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE.
In 2011, Patrick O’Neill introduced olloclip, an iPhone lens system, here on Kickstarter. Within months, olloclip was available in Apple Stores globally! Always an inventor, Patrick is back, now with co-founder James Wharton, to introduce their new company… Jura.
OUT FOR DELIVERY
Anchor isn't a concept. It's designed, tested and ready for manufacturing. Your support allows us the funding to press go. As soon as this project completes, we'll begin shipping the Anchor product to backers within 30 days!
MADE IN CALIFORNIA
We designed the Jura Anchor in Southern California and we make them here too. This allows us to personally inspect every one of them and make sure they are perfect.
THANKS TO A FEW OF OUR PARTNERS!
Without a hand from a bunch of talented and generous people and companies, none of this would be possible. A huge "thank you" goes to the people at Solidworks (CAD design software) for accepting us into their Entrepreneur Program. To PRUSA for the 3D printer which is truly a member of our team and has been running 24/7 without a hiccup. So many folks have touched this project, if you are one of them - we can't thank you enough.
Thank you for your consideration. We hope you will join us on this journey.

Risks and challenges
While we've been successful here before and have worked tirelessly to get to this point, there are inherent risks to any endeavor like this. Our founders have a track record of successfully navigating unforeseen events. Olloclip was an entirely new category of products that sold millions of units. The learnings from design, production, supply chain, and fulfillment don't ensure success, but they certainly put this venture in a good position. We believe in this enough that we've dedicated the past 18 months to launching it and have self-funded to this point. Everything is ready to go from tooling, materials, packaging, logistics, etc. The plan is laid out and fully developed. If things happen, we'll deal with them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
