Well, we are almost there and it won’t be long before we will ship the Flex kits.  Fortunately, we began designing the skin back in July and the frame assembly in August.   Naturally, we had to go back and forth between design and engineering to work out the tiny details like getting the frame to snap perfectly onto the thin ledge between the glass and the aluminum.  By November we had our first prototypes of the frame and pivot and were simultaneouly sourcing the manufacturing of the straps.   Actually cutting the steel and building the injection molds only took six weeks and by early January we had our first production samples.  Upon receiving these samples is when we launched this project, there were still minor issues to correct, but we’ve already worked through them.  This is why we’ll be able to ship very soon after the project funds.  We’ve received a handful of the units and we expect to receive the rest by the end of this week.  We will package and ship soon thereafter.  The packaging will be minimal to keep the cost of shipping low.  So thanks again for everyones support...all 300 of you.
