Rick Hopper, creator and founder of Readerest, knows that people who wear glasses often misplace them when they take them off, or else put their eyeglasses in a pocket or case, from which they slip and fall. And he has an answer for these annoyances.
Being an eyeglass wearer himself, Hopper explains, “Like most people I had a problem with my glasses, my reading glasses especially. I’d stick them in my shirt when I wasn’t using them because I didn’t have place to keep them. Then I’d bend over to pick something up and they would fall out and get scratched on the ground. Or, I’ll leave them lying around and then I can’t find them when I need them.” Inspired by this annoyance, Hopper developed a product that keeps glasses safe and sound, using stainless steel and small powerful magnets strong enough to hold the weight of 50 pairs of glasses on most shirts and blouses.
Hopper details the durability and strength of the product, explaining, “It’s a lightweight product, but it’s super powerful. The product works on sweatshirts, fleece, denim, and just about every type of clothing except for a thick motorcycle leather jacket.” Beside its wearing flexibility, the Readerest illustrates flexibility in its usage as Hopper has known some customers to hang their Bluetooth earpiece, golfing tees, as well as fishing hooks and lures on the product, in order to keep them secure and handy.
Moreover, Hopper says that the clever product sells well at swap meets. “I do great at flea markets and street fairs. Wherever there are a lot of people wandering around,” he says. When vendors show how the product works, sales are easy, he says. “That face to face opportunity is so effective.” Although the Web site lists retail price, the Readerest can be provided at a wholesale price following three different order price points of $250, $1,000 and $5,000.
