About

 We've all been there at one time or another, but with Wrapsit™    slipcover crate, it doesn't have to be this way.

  • Simply and easily converts the wasted space beneath the seat of a standard folding quad chair into 5 cubic feet of dry, mesh-sided security for your pet and/or your personal valuables. Instantly ready for use anytime and anywhere you open your chair.
  • Keeps personal items secure from theft, protected from the yuck 'n muck of the day and out from under foot where they may become damaged.
  • Allows pet freedom from the leash, the sun, the crowds and other pets and pests.
  • Easily closes with chair and wraps for carrying - no more fighting to re-bag.
  • Eliminates the hassle of locating and carrying a pet crate and/or stake-out leash.
  • Provides for visual contact between pet and pet parent.
  • Increases opportunities to take small pets to activities and events decreasing episodes of separation anxiety.
  • Prevents chair legs from sinking into the sand and/or mud.

1.   Simple one-time, slipcover installation secures in place with hook and loop
2.   No more re-bagging your chair Wrapsit™ becomes its own convenient carrying case
3.   5 cubic feet of fully enclosed area for pet containment and/or storage of personal items
4.   Waterproof base and interior floor added protection from the elements
5.   Extra pockets on wrapping panel accessible even when unit is closed
6.   Large mesh windows on four sides allow for pet ventilation and viewing
7.   Large zippered opening for easy access to interior
8.   Padded handle for ease of carrying your chair
9.   Releasable shoulder strap for use as a convenient pet lead
10. Staking loops for those windy days

 No, it's not a Ginsu knife, but it is really, really sharp! Just imagine... your day of fun is over and you are bushed. The last thing you want to do is struggle with rebagging your chair. With Wrapsit™, you don't have to - simply close your chair, wrap and go!

Author Malcolm Gladwell claims that the key to success in any field involves the rule of 10,000 hours of practice!  Over the past 5 years developing Wrapsit™ slipcover crate, Carla and I each have designed, fitted, sewn, pitched and polled over 10,000 hours and are confident that we have refined the design of Wrapsit™ for optimal convenience, functionality and style.

We have located a factory, procured samples and are ready to begin the first manufacturing run! 

Early prototype, labeled for prospective manufacturer. ● Piles of outdoor textiles and hardware for prototypes. ● Keeping things positive and fun. ● Forest of chairs needed for fittings.

Now we need your support for:

  • inventory manufacturing
  • product packaging
  • shipping
  • Kickstarter campaign fees & costs
  • fulfilling and mailing your Wrapsit™ slipcover crate to your door!

Together we can make the convenience of Wrapsit™ slipcover crate a reality for millions of active pet parents, their furry little companions and individuals interested in making leisure time safer, easier and more enjoyable for everyone.

Risks and challenges

We have located a factory and, after several refinements, have a factory sample of Wrapsit™ slipcover crate. We are confident that we have developed a simple to use quality product that will add value to your leisure time while maintaining a sleek and stylish appearance. With the difficult and time-consuming development process behind us, we are ready to begin the first production run as soon as Wrapsit™ has met its funding goal.

Production should take between 60 to 90 days; however, we will be competing with very large companies for a place in the summer manufacturing queue, which means there is a risk of production delays. We will do everything possible to fulfill all rewards within 90 days of the Wrapsit™ Kickstarter Campaign completion and will keep you posted of major timeline events during production.
