About this project


  

                        GREAT NEWS FLASH

Our injection molder has graciously offered to contribute to the campaign by DOUBLING the amount of plastic parts in every order.

NOW...every order for one unit, will actually receive TWO complete products.

                     USE THE "2 FOR 1" REWARDS.

            ................................................................

  • One size fits all...Apple iPads, Mini's, ASUS, Sansung...+
  • No metal means no airport security problems
  • Works with YOUR tablet cover also
  • We use recycled materials
  • LifetimeWarranty
  • Made in USA
  • We are committed to employing our service personnel and the disabled

We need your help because...

  • You will enable us to bring this product to market .
  • We must purchase injection mold dies that cost over $15,000.
  • Each reward costs about $4-5.00 just to ship to you.
  • We have other costs of inbound freight and the parts
  • YOU will know that you assisted in creating jobs in the USA.

"Why so much money?"

People say..."seems like a bunch of 3D printed parts."

Here's your answer:

  • 3D parts are not nearly strong enough to withstand the strains placed on these pieces.
  • Properly designed, Injection Molded parts enable us to offer the Lifetime Warranty. 

Here's a chart of where the money will be spent.

Here are several ways to use your ScreenSuspenders:

AS A HANDHELD:

Coach Don loves ScreenSuspenders.  WHY?  It has eliminated the cramping and tendonitis he used to experience when gripping the tablet.  It also allows the tablet to be down and out of the sunlight, so it doesn't shut down from being in the hot sun.

Notice how uncomfortable it is to grip the tablet on the left.  It's also easy to drop the device as well.  The hands naturally work together in an ergonomic movement to eliminate strains when using ScreenSuspenders.

Current product, holds tablet high and secure. As seat tilts, screen rotates.

On the latest aircraft seats.  NO SCREENS IN SEATS!  Only a magazine pocket.  This is the future.  See that the ScreenSuspenders hangs your tablet on a "HINGE" so the angle will always be upright; Even when the seat is reclined. DOESN'T USE TRAY TABLE!
