We have all the perks 3D printed, packaged, and sent! With that behind us, we look forward to servicing all your new orders at our new website at http://www.rjclip.com
Thank you All.
Who we are and what we want (the Campaign)
We are a home-based business, Bit64 Solutions Ltd., primarily providing IT professional services to small, medium, and large enterprise clients. The RJClip is our first venture outside of selling services. Everyone in our family is involved with bringing the RJClip to the market. It's an exciting time for us.
We are launching the RJClip through Indiegogo because we feel this is the best place to launch a product such as ours. Here, our crowdfunding campaign will help us understand our customers, create media exposure, and raise capital to fund product and business expenses.
What is an RJClip?
The RJClip is an easy and inexpensive way to replace the broken clip on a RJ45 connector at the end of a network cable. It allows the network cable to securely plug into a switch or wall jack.
NOTE: Telephone cords use RJ11 connectors. Despite the fact that they look similar, the RJ11 connector is smaller than the RJ45 connector. The RJClip is designed for RJ45 connectors, and therefore is too big for an RJ11 connector. We are planning to develop this version later in the campaign.
What does this mean to you?
Using the RJClip to fix broken network cable clips allows you to save time and money. Instead of spending time crimping a new RJ45 connector onto the cable or spending money to buy a new network cable, you can simply clip an RJClip onto the broken network head and continue to use the cable. The design and material of the RJClip ensures it lasts many times longer than the original clip. As a result, it mimimizes waste and contributes to a greener way of life.
What colours does it come in?
The RJClip is currently available in Red, White, Black, Green, Yellow, and Blue.
How do we make them?
The RJClip is made with a state-of-the-art 3D manufacturing system. Our vendor, Anubis3D, can produce the RJClip in a rainbow of colours in a medical grade nylon 12 material. We are proud to say the RJClip is invented, designed and "Made in Canada". We think this is one of the best things about our product. The biggest advantage to 3D manufacturing is the ability to have the RJClips ready to send to you soon after the end of the campaign.
What's in it for you? (the Perks)
All our perks are about getting you RJClips in the quantities and colours of your choice. We will also provide customization to suit corporations or individuals looking to hand out personalized gifts. (Hint: trade show handouts).
Are there risks?
We do not foresee any risks at this time as our patent pending design for the RJClip has tested successfully on almost all occasions. That being said, we are still making minor design changes to make the RJClip the best it can be. If the RJClip(s) you receive do not work, we will either exchange your RJClips or refund your money.
Other Ways You Can Help
We know it's not always possible to contribute funds. The best way you can help us otherwise is to pass this campaign to anyone you think would be interested, especially people who work with computers (network and office administrators, etc.).
