About Us

 

LAZY-HANDS Thumbs-Free Grips for mobile devices by Kernelope Enterprises were created by Colorado inventors, Christine and Danny Potter.  LAZY-HANDS grips are thumbs-free grip attachments for tablets, eReaders, smartphones, clipboards, remotes, protein powder kegs, over-sized coffee mugs, small tools and other lightweight objects. LAZY-HANDS grips attach to the back of the mobile device or its case and allows the user to comfortably, easily and securely handle the device with just one hand without dropping it.  No more awkwardly gripping and pinching the device with both hands.   The dream of curling up and reading a good book will come true with LAZY-HANDS, allowing you to recline in any position and relax while reading anywhere.

LAZY-HANDS was launched at the 2011 National Hardware Show and was awarded a 2011 Retailers’ Choice Blue Ribbon Award from Hardware Retailing Magazine.  Judges in the hardware trade were impressed with the unique LAZY-HANDS product design, and viewed it as an outstanding product for the retail industry—with the potential to sell extremely well at the retail level.

LAZY-HANDS attended the January 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Consumer Electronics Shows in Las Vegas, and the National Retail Federation The Big Show as a Partner with Microsoft in New York City in 2014 and 2015.  They will be in Las Vegas for the 2016 CES.
