Every idea starts in one person’s mind. Everything you see around you have been invented this way. Advanced ideas, like smart phones, are many single ideas put together. New ideas are often solutions to problems that has been accepted as unavoidable, until someone think “Why are we doing this so difficult?”, and start thinking of a better way.
The birth of ratchet straps.
Earlier the main method of cargo securing was with rope, until one person had a better idea. The Ratchet Strap is now established as the fastest and safes way of securing loads. These tools, often called tie down straps, comes in many shapes and sizes, and is sold worldwide by the millions. This is now, but I am sure there was a lot of resistance from the rope fans in the beginning. It is like this with all new ideas. The small town where I live, called Skudeneshavn, remained a small town because sailing ship fans did not believe in steam engines. This is just the nature of healthy skepticism combined with human strive for efficiency.
Skepticism can be the death of a great idea.
I guess time will show if my idea, called the DrumRoll, is good enough to withstand the skepticism from people that are used to roll up their ratchet straps by hand, or not rolling them up at all. I know my simple and efficient tool has many benefits that will serve large groups of professionals like the transport-, warehouse- and farming industry, among others. My biggest challenge is not raising money, get distributors or manufacturers. It is breaking the skepticism. It is making people open their mind and give my product a chance. There is no way around this. This is the YES or NO for this innovation in the long run.
Everything adds up.
It might seem like a small and trivial innovation, but with millions of ratchet straps in operation, there will quickly be a lot of time saved. By using the DrumRoll for quick and easy strap winding, you will always end up with your strap rolled up with the hook on the outside. This makes it safe and easy to throw the strap over the load, with the metal hook safely in your hand. The DrumRoll makes it possible to roll up your tie downs almost without touching them. This will help keep your hands and truck or tractor clean. With the convenience of this tool it gets much easier to actually roll up your straps, instead of dumping them in a pile. This way the DrumRoll will help keeping your working area tidy. The signal effect of not wasting your employer or customer’s time, also add to the benefits.
Can I overcome your skepticism?
I hope, and believe, these reasons are good enough for professionals, like yourself, to spend the money I am asking for this tool. I believe enough in this product to give you a 30-day money back guarantee. This way I have reduced your risk and by this I hope to overcome your skepticism.
