Happy Thanksgiving

It's the time of year where we take a moment to remember everything that we are thankful for. Here at SwiftPaws, we are thankful for each and every one of YOU for making this incredible journey possible.

 

Production Update:

We have been at work nonstop at SwiftPaws HQ getting the first sub-assemblies into production and lining everything else up for production. We've continued to rigorously test the unit, making tweaks and performance adjustments as necessary, and we're even sourcing things like boxes and labels.

We were very excited to receive our first samples of production plastics (the SwiftPaws housing!) a couple weeks ago. Overall, we were very impressed with the quality, but there were a few minor adjustments that needed to be made to some of the measurements and tolerances. We're confident that, with these changes, the plastics will be ready to go into production. They will likely be the very last "piece of the puzzle" that we will have on-hand. Our goal now is to have everything else produced, assembled, and ready to go for when they finally arrive. Our timeline on this looks like we should be getting production plastics towards the end of December. Once we receive them, we will work around the clock to get them assembled and packaged for shipment.

Timeline:

With everything falling into place, and with us having already begun production with the first sub-assemblies, we are still hopeful that we can begin shipping SwiftPaws before the end of December. The timeline is very tight, and should any hurdles come our way, we will be sure to update all of you just as soon as possible.

Thank You:

We want to say, "thank you" once again to each and every one of you for wholeheartedly embracing the idea of SwiftPaws. We are so close now to being able to produce the very first batch, and even though we've had our fair share of typical development frustrations and setbacks, we couldn't be prouder of the product we're making, nor more impressed with the community behind it.

      Hi Catherine, we are hoping to put out another update by the end of the week. While the wait is SUPER frustrating everything is coming together slowly but surely. Thank you for hanging in there with us!

      I've tried to order extra pulleys a couple times in the past, but don't know the status of those orders! Can you help?
