Multi-Tool for Truckers Is A Crowd-funding Success
The Tool For Anything
If you haven't heard about the Lil' Trucker Multi-Tool, perk up your ears. This nifty little gadget has just made it successfully through crowd-funding and is entering production.
What is Crowd-funding?
In short, crowd-funding is where an idea or a product is listed on a specified funding website from a private person or a manufacturer. A monetary goal is set to be reached for initial production costs, just to get the item off the ground. If it is a popular idea, people will literally donate the money to get it into production. That's what the crowd and the funding are all about.
This multi-tool is specifically designed for truckers, and other motor vehicle applications. It features a small axe, a glass breaker, a seatbelt cutter, a gas shut-off wrench, and a can opener -- thank goodness -- to name a few of its handy functions. It is made in the U.S. and will fit easily into a glove box or a cargo pants pocket.
Power to the People
Although this is a neat idea, it needed a little help to get it from conception to manufacturing. That's where the people came in. It was listed on Kickstarter with a goal of 25,000 dollars over a period of 1 month. Amazingly, it became such a popular item, that it made over 120,000 dollars in pledges, easily surpassing its original goal.
The Drivers Seat
Crowd-funding, for virtually anything, from music to gadgets, and everything in between, puts you in the drivers seat. Your interest in a project and your pledges make it happen. And that's exactly why the Lil' Trucker Multi-Tool, will soon be coming to a retail store near you! For a variety of crowd-funding links, check this out.
