GoGo Grip is a patent pending handle and cord wrap for monitors up to 27" and HDTVs up to 29" that attaches to the standardized VESA mount for easy, one-handed portability. GoGo Grip is made from 16 gauge steel, powder coated black and comes with low profile, button socket cap screws with Black Oxide finish. And that's not all! Each GoGo Grip also comes with a hex key allen wrench so you can attach GoGo Grip right out of the box. GoGo Guard is an optional neoprene screen cover to provide scuff and scratch protection in transit. GoGo Guard is available in two stretchable sizes... one size for 23.6-24" monitors and 24" HDTVs and the larger size is for 27" monitors and 28-29" HDTVs. GoGo Guard is constructed from 3mm neoprene with 70 denier nylon woven laminated to each side. The seams are serged with a safety stitch to finish the edges and reinforce the corners. The opening is trimmed with 1" elastic and sewn with a zigzag stitch.
GoGo Grip emerged from a “scratch my own itch” need of the inventor, Kyle Hilla, creator of CollabraCam, a social video production app for iOS. “As a designer, a coworking space is a difficult proposition without the added productivity of an external monitor,” said Hilla. The thought of lugging a monitor around was definitely unappealing, but the desire for the community, camaraderie and collaboration of coworking provided the spark for Hilla’s simple, ingenious solution to take advantage of the existing VESA mount to secure a handle to a monitor. From there he created CAD drawings, started prototyping and made connections at GR Makers, a local maker space, to help bring the product to life. After showing some of the prototypes around for feedback, the most critical aspect wasn't even about the handle... it was about protecting the screen. That was when he knew he had to develop a companion product and started researching Monitor and HDTV dimensions for what would be the GoGo Guard. The rest of the story is on Kickstarter.
GoGo Grip was designed with coworking professionals in mind, but it's not just for people who work hard… It’s also great for people who play hard! Gamers can easily take their monitor and rig to a friend’s house, LAN party or eSports tournament to get their game on. Sports fans can bring their TV to the tailgate to stay updated on all the games or watch the home team out on the deck while playing cornhole in the yard.
