About this project

"The Hangman" was designed and engineered to make construction jobs easier and more productive for both homeowners and contractors. All Talyn tools are precision engineered and made in the USA.

In addition to getting one of the first Talyn Industries tools produced, your support allows us to secure packaging and documentation for our product launch.

Help make working on ladders more convenient for yourself and contractors worldwide!                      

The Hangman is both adjustable and extremely versatile.

Simply insert "The Hangman" in any open ladder rung of your extension ladder.

 "The Hangman" can be used on either side of your ladder.

"The Hangman" was invented by Kay Saucier, a Connecticut residential contractor of 15 years. We are considering offering custom colors to large contractors and building supply retailers. What are your thoughts about how you would use "The Hangman?"  Comment and let us know.

"The Hangman" holds any standard size paint can from either the paint ring (Painter's version) or the thumb. (Located on the hook).  The hook rotates 360 degrees and easily locks into place.

"The Hangman" fits inside any standard commercial ladder rung.  We've tested our product with all of the major ladder manufacturers.  Shown below is the adjustment mechanism that is raised and lowered by turning "The Hangman's" crank.

"The Hangman's" hook has a durable rubber coating that will be long-lasting and protect tools from scratches.

The articulating arm has a super-duty, rubber coated fastener that is easy for even small hands to torque down.

The locking crank features a screwdriver insert hole for providing additional locking confidence for extra-heavy items.

"The Hangman's" surfaces are made from solid aluminum and built commercial-grade in the U.S.A.

Risks and challenges

This precision tool, "The Hangman," engineered and manufactured in the United States and secured with a US patent, is finally ready to be introduced to the world at large. The challenge is now in your hands. We need your help and support to make "The Hangman" a household name.

The final step is the launch of Kickstarter and this is where you are the vital rung and we welcome your participation in our exciting new venture. Join our team and climb to the top of the ladder with us. Along the way, there will be regular project updates so you will experience the progress right along with us. Hopefully, each little step will bring us closer to our goal.

We have already developed good relationships with suppliers and manufacturers to support the fulfillment of our dream. All assembly and testing will be completed by our team to give maximum control over the end product. Your input is welcome.

We will begin manufacturing the minute we reach our funding goal. Our manufacturer is lined up and ready to start. Your support is the last rung of the ladder! Because we want to include FREE shipping for all U.S. backers, and the lowest possible cost for international customers, we are working to establish the quickest and most affordable way to ship this product to you. We hope to get the product to you in approximately 6 weeks time from the date we hit our pledge goal. Thank you for your encouragement, guidance, support, financial pledges, and for getting the word out to ladder climbers everywhere. We could not do this without you.
