Production Update 2

Dear Backers, 

Thank you so much for patiently waiting while your rewards get ready to ship. Our manufacturer had promised to start production two weeks ago, but we’re told that they are facing challenges in obtaining consistent results. This comes as a surprise to us, given their past experience with making the Pocket Tripod, and the extended time they’ve spent on tooling. 

For this reason, we are flying to China next week to examine our manufacturer’s process. While there, we’ll troubleshoot and optimize their production methods and ensure that they are producing the products per our specifications and as fast as possible. We’ll also take this opportunity to give you a tour of the production process, which we’ll share with you in our next update. 

Our support team will remain in the US and will respond to any questions or requests that you may have within one business day.
(Support@Pocket-Tripod.com

We know that you’re anxiously waiting to get your hands on the Pocket Tripod PRO. We want you to know that we also share this feeling. In fact, we’ve ordered tens of thousands of them to keep up with the growing number of orders that we’ve been receiving. We're grateful for the amazing support. So rest assured, we feel an incredible sense of urgency as well, and we can't wait to ship them to you. 

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.
Update my details ->   

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.

      Did they get kidnapped in China??? I would have expected some kind of update by now if not.

      Hi, any further updates regarding this project? When are you going to ship this project?

      The reason why I backed this project was because you were successful on your first backer project I would expect you guys to learn from your mistakes and are able to create a product maybe little quicker. I guess I'm wrong whoever is your project manager needs to be replaced. History is about to repeat itself.

    9. Tim Henschel on

      It's been over a year since I've backed this project. I've received nothing from you except a bunch of BS promises.

    10. Richard Sison on

      Any update to report? Like many others, I'm getting pretty frustrated with the timeline and lack of communication. Depending on when it will arrive, I might need to update my details if I get a phone upgrade…

    11. Rachel Diane Childers on

      Are you going to reply to any questions or comments? It is bad when even the Superbackers are given no reply. Have my bank looking into options and have contacted Kickstarter to get involved even if options are limited. What is worse... I understand the iPhone 6s+ has been available and yet nothing was shipped. About to reach out to the New Stations to cover this story. People should be aware of this kind of thing happening when dealing with Kickstarter. You are only doing harm to other projects as I am now worried about backing any other projects.

      There has been so many delays over the last 1 year. Please give regular updates (and I mean at least once a week) to make this a bit less painful.

      One month later simce the alleged trip to China, and no update. I'm reporting the project, and I demand an immediate refund!

    14. Rachel Diane Childers on

      Question: Was I billed for this a year ago? If yes, can I get a refund? Sorry but the production of this is way overdue. Please let me know so that I do not start the dispute process with my credit card company as you have failed to supply said product in any sort of agreed upon timeline. Thank you.

      @Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard And why are there links to amazon and website? What's wrong with you? Tell us that you will never get us the product. There is no justification to this mess!

    23. Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard 2-time creator on

      @John P Benedict Sr, the link you provided is to website that forwards buyers to our own store, where they can then pre-order the product. All pre-orders will ship in the order they were received, which means that Kickstarter rewards will ship first.

    24. Franz Quiroz Cornejo on

      Totalmente decepcionado! Fui uno de los primeros en apoyar su proyecto y durante mucho tiempo le tuve fe! Pero, hasta cuándo? Ha pasado más de un año y siguen prologando....
      Estoy pensando seriamente en pedir mi REEMBOLSO.
      Por favor, pónganse las pilas y hagan algo efectivo.
      Gracias

      Why is it that these are being sold in online stores and little convenience stores locally? http://odditymall.com/pocket-tripod I think someone is getting screwed here and it's us the backers !!!

      Really? One more delay? I'm really trying to understand if you're just unlucky, or full of scamming shit! I'm trying to understand how a company that has already produced a product, can't bring on time to the market a variation of the original!!!

    28. Kosso on

      To Support@Pocket-Tripod.com: (copying here):

      I have had enough patience. I have had enough of the delays and excuses.
      This project is a total failure and since you have not kept up your side of the deal, I wish to receive an immediate full refund from you.

      I have had enough of the clearly disingenuous nature of your updates. I simply do not believe you will ever launch this product if you keep fiddling with the design.

      Ideas are one thing (it was a good one), but execution is everything. And you have failed.

      I look forward to your reply. Sometime THIS YEAR would be nice.

      Thank you. For wasting everyone's time.

    29. Kosso on

      In fact. Yes. I TOO WANT MY MONEY BACK. NOW.

      How do we go about this? You have consistently let down your end of the CONTRACT.

    30. Kosso on

      Another total cop-out. This product could have easily been made in time. Along time ago.
      We'll be lucky if we get it before they go change the flipping sizes of all the phones again.
      Very disappointed that I gave you my money.

      I've never read so many excuses for such a simple campaign and product. Shame on you.

    31. Drew Parrott on

      Thanks for the update. I'm sorry to hear that you're having issues with your manufacturer, but I have faith in you guys.

      Haydn Mowbray on

      Like many on here I struggle to understand how a company that has already produced a successful product is struggling to produce what seems to be a variation in a reasonable amount of time. I do appreciate that there are often hurdles in design and production processes but there's no excuse for the lack of regular communication. Can you provide an update immediately following your trip to China on the status and revised timeline for delivery.

      A weekly update with:

      This is where we are
      This is when production is due to commence
      This is when we'll be despatching

      Would be enough to provide those of us that still see a need for this product to have faith you're going to deliver something. We've given you our money and faith, it's not an unreasonable thing to ask

      You're saying a bunch of BULLSHIT! I WANT A REFOUND NOW!

      This is just a huge disappointment. I thought how hard can it be to deliver a piece of plastic on time, but I was wrong. Maybe you chose the wrong manufacturer

      suddenly decided to check my email, excitedly opened your update only to be disappointed yet again. my fears are slowly being realized, and it seems like we have been scammed. this is my first (and most likely, last) time to back a project on kickstarter. how do we get a refund?

    39. Wilfred on

      Backing this project has been a year long exercise in patience building

    40. Justine Guest on

      Really disappointing. How do we refund please?

    41. Jay Gallman on

      We're well past absurd at this point. Like others I've written this project off as a complete loss. I know a little about injection molding and similar processes. The excuses offered here smack of "the dog ate my homework."

      You are joking aren't you? From a very successful first project to this catastrophe - it has been a long slide downwards. Looking forward to getting my standeazy and filing this in the "disappointments" folder when it arrives.

      I was just thinking about this today and then here's an update. In fact, I wondered if it had been delivered, and I had already lost it. So ... I guess this is good news for me.

    44. Stacey Basse on

      How do I get my money back!?

    45. Hayley Eiden on

      July 4 2016. That's when I backed this project.
      It is June 7th, 2017.
      This is why I hate backing projects. Nothing, and I mean, NOTHING, is ever done remotely on time.

    46. Winston Cruz on

      Lol. As expected with a typical kickstarter project

    47. Rusty Painter on

      HOLY SHIT!!!! Why don't you just come out and admit that you intend to steal our money?? Seriously, you are selling a PIECE OF FREAKING PLASTIC!! It's not rocket science!!

      Oh wow…just another delay…what a surprise :(
      Guys, it's about time to think about a little extra for the patient backers who are willing to wait…

      Hi David, thank you for your patience. yes absolutely. As long as we haven't shipped you can easily change your details through BackerKit. We know people change phones and cases all the time, and that's one of the main reasons why we made the Pocket Tripod PRO universal to keep up with that. You can change the size, color, and your address at any time. (https://pocket-tripod.backerkit.com/)
