A new product that ensures cell phone and smart phone users will never drop their mobile devices again has now gone nationwide. Developed by a Tampa-based company, SnapALoop attaches to the back of mobile devices and features a loop for users to slide their finger through so the object doesn’t fall out of their hand.
“I’ve dropped my phone plenty of times while trying to multitask or while texting and that’s how I came up the idea for SnapALoop,” said company President and CEO Bryan Karle.
SnapALoop’s ring, which is made from a soft flexible plastic also swivels 360 degrees for greater customer comfort Karle noted.
SnapALoop is now being sold nationwide with advertising running on more than 20 cable networks including Animal Planet, Disney XD, The GameShow Network, Hallmark, MSNBC, Nickelodeon, Ovation, Oxygen, SyFy and TV Land.
Manufactured entirely in the United States, Karle said dropping a smart phone can prove to be costly. “You can spend $300, $400, $500 or more on some of these devices and when you drop one on tile or cement, even on a wood floor you run the risk of having it break apart.”
But Karle said destroying a cell phone or smart phone by dropping it in water is not unheard of either. “Living in Florida I know boaters who have dropped their cell phones in the water, people who have dropped their phones in a pool and I know people who’ve accidentally dropped their phone in the toilet.” SnapALoop he said is designed to prevent that from ever happening again.
The company also touts the product as perfect for runners or walkers who want to attach it to an MP3 player, or for putting on the back of tablets and eReaders.
Sold online through the company’s website, SnapALoop is available in multiple colors at a cost of $9.95 for 2 bases and 6 loops. The loops come in three sizes; small, medium and large and each order includes 2 of each.
