Thank you for your patience and for giving us the opportunity to make the best product possible. We do realize that there was a gap between this and our last update, but we did not have any concrete details from our manufacturer until now.
The adjustments and debugging of the molds were scheduled to be complete by March 10th, but our manufacturer took longer than expected. They actually had to go through four additional rounds of adjustments to get the parts fitting just right. This was due to an accidental damage to a component’s mold, which forced them to remake it.
Last week we received their latest samples. After close examination, we’ve determined that most components are ready for production, with only a small number requiring minor corrections, which are scheduled to be ready by the end of next week.
In the meantime, we’ve also been busy getting everything else prepared so to compress the time required for production and packaging. The Fit Cards that will be included in each package are ready.
Even these tiny boxes for holding adapters for anyone who’s ordered extras.
Also, the carbon fiber skeletons that get embedded in the legs of the tripod are prepped for production.
Changes to your details
We’ll be keeping BackerKit open until we start shipping, for anyone who needs to make changes to their address, or size/color selection.
About the Pocket Tripod PRO’s fit
The Pocket Tripod PRO’s soft-touch openings give them a stronger grip compared to our 2016 model. With that in mind, the sizes recommended on our device guide are still correct, but will give you a tight fit. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, or for less strain on your screen protector, we recommend switching to the next larger size. If you have any trouble with the fit once you receive your reward, please contact our support team, who will be happy to find a solution for you.
Contrary to what some commenters may suggest, our policy has always been to offer hassle-free cancellations and refunds for anyone who chooses not to wait. If you need to cancel, please email our support team, and they’ll take care of it for you right away.
As always, thank you for your continued support. We’re excited to get the rewards shipped as soon as possible. We’ll be keeping you updated as we complete each milestone.
