Power Couple

Over the past few years, Ilovehandles has expanded into a number of categories: home furnishings, kitchen products, personal accessories, and even puzzles. Well today we’re launching two new products that hark back to our roots in tech accessories. Introducing Tug and Node!

If you have an iPad pro, you probably have an Apple Pencil. If you want to charge them both at the same time, you need two cords AND Apple’s easy-to-lose adapter for the pencil. And if you have both of those devices, chances are you have an iPhone. How do you charge all three at once?

Enter Node, the lightning multi-charger. It’s tiny, but it’s powerful.

Node. One for all.

As cool as USB-C is, many of us were sad when Apple killed off MagSafe, which has undoubtedly saved the lives of countless laptops over the years. That disappointment led us to a key insight: Why not place the magnetic break-away connection at the outlet?

Meet Tug. It works with any power cord you might trip on! It also works as a quick switch; just tug to turn off a lamp or vacuum.

Tug. Make a clean break.

Both products will ship March 1.

Plus Size Model

Plank was one of our first products after Rock Band, the viral product that launched Ilovehandles. Plank solved a personal problem for us, and we thought we might be able to sell them. Mostly, it was for us. We quickly realized that we weren’t the only ones who appreciated Plank’s simplicity and utility.

When we launched Plank, the idea was that you could unload everything from your pockets onto a shelf that is no bigger than it has to be. As phones got bigger, so did Plank. For most phones today, the Plus size is simply a better fit.

The wait is finally over the for those of you who requested a Walnut or Black Plank Plus. There is no longer a tradeoff between the size you need and the finish you want.

How well do you know your city?

Maps are beautiful, but they are also fun. Introducing Puzzle Places! (Like “puzzle pieces”… that are places…). Puzzle Places are wood puzzles of your favorite cities. Each piece has the neighborhood on the underside, so it’s both fun AND educational.

We’re starting out with nine cities: Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Portland, and San Francisco. Let us know if we missed yours.

Say hello to our little friend.

Introducing the most minimalist wall-mount and dock for your smartphone. It’s both super functional and portable!

Tiny is a minimalist wooden wall mount for your smartphone, with a slot for your charging cord. Place it at your bedside, at your entryway, or use Tiny on your desk as a simple stand.

And, for the rest of your devices—for all of your devices, we took Tiny, beefed it up, and stretched it out. Today we’re also announcing Tiny’s big brother, Stretch!

Stretch is a device rack that allows you to store and charge all of your home’s devices in one place. There are seven slots to hold your cables so you can keep everything topped off.

Tiny and Stretch. Put ‘em up.

Tickled Pink…and White

“There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. The reason is that pink being a more decided and stronger color is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.”

-Ladies Home Journal, 1918

At ILOVEHANDLES, we think pink can be both for girls and for boys… just like our minimalist smartphone mount, Barnacle. Today, after a number of your requests, we’re adding two new colors to the Barnacle family, a strong pink and an uncontroversial white.

Pick your favorite colors, or buy a set!

Beyond Measure

Over two years ago, we released the Wrist Ruler, and it has since taken on a life of its own. Just look at this stylish chap, or these custom red rulers for a store in Brooklyn, or this special moment.

Today, we want to let you know about some additions to the Wrist Ruler family: Wrist Ruler is now available in black (with a brass closure) and natural!

We also created another leather tool, the Cord Protractor. First, use it as a cable keeper; open it up, and you can use it to measure angles.

We think these new products really *ahem* measure up. Enjoy!

Finishing Touches

This spring, flirt with the dark side (of our product line). Today we are launching new finishes for two of our wood products.

Smorgas, our wooden magnetic bulletin board, is now available in black, and it’s pretty sleek. As always, you can buy Smorgas as a set, or you can buy the pieces individually. (The black magnetic accessories look particularly great on the fridge.)

We also gave Keep Track a new finish. If you have darker wood in your home, this will be a sophisticated addition to your entryway or home office.

New Year, New Product

Keep Track is a coat rack and shelving system. It’s wall-mounted and adjustable. Metal pieces slide into and along a track in a solid block of alder wood. The smaller metal piece creates a hook, while the larger piece can be used in two different ways. Insert it one way, and it’s a small shelf for sunglasses or a phone; flip it around, and it’s a mail holder.

Configure Keep Track to fit your needs at an entryway, a desk, or wherever it fits in your home. We hope it will help you *ahem* keep track of your daily items.
