INTERNATIONAL BACKERS:

Average shipping range for international backers, for a single flex shot is $30-$50. However, if flex shot is funded it is Wild Iron's plan to get international shipping prices reduced by working with a third-party international shipping vendor. That is why we are not charging International Backers a shipping fee upfront. If you would like a quote go to USPS.com. Calculate shipping from Hackensack, NJ UNITED STATES to your country. flex shot with packaging weighs 4 pounds.  Box dimensions are 5x5x5.

Risks and challenges

MANUFACTURING
flex shot's moldable rubber casing will be injected here in the United States. Similar to our process in producing the Steadywheel, we will seek out suppliers not only in the U.S., but locally within a day's drive of our facility in Hackensack, NJ. We feel it is important to visit the facilities making our components. Being able to meet face to face with prototypes in hand significantly reduces miss-communication, and streamlines the entire development process. flex shot's billet aluminum top will also be made here in the U.S. and locally. The top, in manufacturing terms, is a rather simple component. Many machine shops local to the tri-state area have the capabilities to produce this component.

PACKAGING
Packaging is an entire engineering discipline unto itself. In order to save costs and reduce our overall carbon footprint for this project, we have decided flex shot will only be packaged in its shipping box, which is used for delivery.

INSTRUCTIONS
flex shot is simple to use. However, one can always benefit from some basic guidelines and tips. Our intention is to have a skilled artist sit down with the Wild Iron crew and create an Infographic. The completed Infographic will be available for download from our website www.wildiron.com. Additionally, Wild Iron will create instructional videos that will be available on our website and YouTube channel.

ASSEMBLY
flex shot will be assembled in our facility in Hackensack, NJ. Parts will arrive from several different vendors. One vendor shall provide the Industrial rubber casing. The aluminum billet tops will be provided by another. The internal locking agent will be prepared by us. These components will then be assembled here on site so Robert can directly oversee assembly and keep a close eye on these little guys.
