Thank you for your continued patience as we prepare your rewards. Since our last update, we’ve been producing components and assembling them non-stop.
We were experiencing a bottleneck in speed with producing the Adapter components, causing part shortages for the assembly line which resulted in delays. To fix that, we immediately began making a second set of molds for the Adapters, which became ready two weeks ago and increased the output to approximately 1000 tripods per day. Production of the inventory for our Kickstarter backers completed yesterday. Packaging is also in full swing. However, work will be on hold until the end of next week, due to a one-week national holiday in China.
Preparation for shipping
We expect to start shipping by October 16th approximately. We will post an update and send an email a few days in advance to remind you to finalize your reward selection and shipping address by Oct 12th. We won’t be able to make any changes after that because our fulfilment centers will need a few days to prepare the shipments (print shipping labels, pick & pack items, etc.) and won’t be able to make any changes after we submit the ship-list.
If you’ve pre-ordered any extra add-ons in BackerKit, your credit card will be charged for those items after Oct 6th. If the card that you’ve provided at the time of answering the survey is no longer valid, you will receive an automated email to let you know to update it.
iPhone X and iPhone 8/8+
If you plan on upgrading to the new iPhones, please update your size selection based on the following recommended sizes. (Safe for screen protectors)
Bare iPhone 8 7.5 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare iPhone 8+ 8.0 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare iPhone X 8.0 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
If you will be using a case, please add the case’s thickness to the sizes recommended above. If you don’t know your case’s thickness yet, you can measure it later using the included Fit Card and order the appropriate Adapters.
Also, we recommend these sizes for the following devices:
Bare iPhone 7 Plus Jet Black 7.5 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ 8.0 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare Samsung Note8 8.5 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Adapter Discounts for Backers
We know you’ve waited a long time to get your rewards, and we’re infinitely grateful for your patience. So we want to thank you by extending our Kickstarter pricing on Adapters for one whole year after you’ve received your reward ($2 instead of $5). After we ship, we will send you an email with a unique discount code.
Natural disaster victims
If you’ve been affected by the recent hurricanes or earthquake, we hope that you are safe. Please let us know if you need us to hold your shipment until you’re ready. Otherwise, you can tell us to ship it to a new address on BackerKit.
Changes to your details
We’ll be keeping BackerKit open until October 12th, for anyone who needs to make changes to their address, or size/color selection.

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 for the PRO version. If you need to cancel, simply let us know by emailing our support team, and we’ll take care of it for you right away.
As always, thank you for your continued support. We’re excited to start shipping the Pocket Tripod PRO. We’ll be keeping you updated as we complete each milestone.
