About this project

TabletHookz can securely mount your tablet or smartphone to the back of a seat.

TabletHookz stick to a surface when used as a traditional stand so your tablet or smartphone doesn't move.

 

 

TabletHookz is a simple, robust, secure, hands-free device to mount tablets or smartphones to the back of a seat when travelling, or for use as a secure traditional stand.

  • small enough to fit in your pocket and can be attached to an edge, such as the back of a meal tray on an aircraft, train or coach/bus.
  • also works as a traditional stand around the home, office,  or even when you're on the move. 
  • feature a securing mechanism to secure it and your device in place, variable viewing angles and fits a wide range of devices, without the need to remove your device from its case.

Our Story

As airline passengers travelling with young children, we found the need for a device to mount the kids’ tablets securely, so they could watch their favourite programmes, hands-free, leaving them able to hold their favourite teddy or comforter and perhaps even fall asleep.

As time went on we wanted TabletHookz to be more that our initial idea and ensure viewers of any age or height could use them, and not limit their usage to aircraft. It's taken nearly two years to get this far and a few weeks ago we had our first patent granted.

 
We got to work designing and producing hundreds of slightly different prototypes and tweaking them to create the best , most secure tablet and smartphone mount that we could that will safely hold a device of any size or model and keep it safe.

We needed TabletHookz to be secure to cater for all those times when things don't stay still.

We needed adjustable viewing angles to cater for everyone and reclining seats.

We wanted it to work as a secure traditional stand too, so when a train or a bus went around corners or braked the tablet or smartphone wouldn't move.

We needed TabletHookz to be universal so they could fit a wide range of different aircraft seats and trays.

We needed TabletHookz to be able to fit a range of tablets and smartphones, both in and out of their cases.

So, how does this Kickstarter work ?

The way Kickstarter crowd funding works is relatively simple. A campaign is created to try and find people, who like your idea or product and believe in our ability to deliver. These people (known as backers) will pledge a financial amount in return for a reward, so in this case it is pledging an amount to pre-order our product.

The aim is that enough people will back the campaign to reach the financial target required to get things up and running and get your rewards to you. Only when/if we reach our campaign target, do Kickstarter actually collect the pledged amount from backers.

Timeline

Please see our time line below to understand what we have been doing to bring TabletHookz™ to you.

 

What about stretch goals ?

A stretch goal is something a campaign may offer once they achieve their initial target, in return for a slightly higher pledge.

We have some stretch goals in mind if we're fortunate enough to reach our initial target.

Custom Colour stretch goal

One of these would be the ability to choose the colours of the TabletHookz reward. If it looks like we're going to achieve our initial goal we will be contacting our backers to find out what the most popular colour options would be and adding a stretch target to make this happen.


Car Adapter - stretch goal

Another stretch goal would be a small adapter that comes with each set of TabletHookz so you can fit the TabletHookz in place on the back of a car seat. The images below show how the tablet would look in place when mounted in the TabletHookz in a vehicle.

Rewards

Our Rewards are listed below, all TabletHookz sets will come with their own individual Microfibre bag big enough for the TabletHookz and other items you may choose to carry with them, like earphones.

We will be making sure that early backers get their rewards first too.

 

 

How can you help us ?

  • Please back our campaign - We'd love it if you would consider backing us through one of our rewards, remember there are early bird discounts, but only a limited number available.
  • Please share this campaign - We would also love it if you would share our campaign on social media with your friends and family so they might consider backing our campaign too. Facebook share  Tweet

Who are we ?

‘We’ are Mike and Katie and we live in Derby in the United Kingdom with our two children (who feature in the video and some of our product photos). As a young family, we know only too well that anything that makes travelling more pleasant is welcome, our children were the inspiration behind TabletHookz.

We have created a company called TabletHookz Limited for our business. Mike works as an airline pilot and Katie previously worked as a flight attendant, but since having children, has retrained and now works as a teaching assistant in our local school.

Intellectual Property

TabletHookz is a registered trademark and our concept & designs are covered by international designs and patents.

Looks Familiar

This is our re-launch on Kickstarter following an unsuccessful launch in November 2016 (4 months ago). Since then we have managed to raise some further capital so our financial goal is now much smaller. With the invaluable help of the Kickstarter community (thank-you) who gave us great feedback on our first campaign - we are trying again.

Thank-you

Thanks for reading this far and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

 

Risks and challenges

All projects have risks but we'd like to think we have mitigated most if not all of them. We have had samples made, our prototypes (made of the same material as the final ones) have been in use for a number of months. We've chosen our suppliers, they have tested our production models in preparation for the plastic injection moulding process (flow and tooling). We're ready to put the parts together and the logistics are all in place for getting the product to you.
