Riesgaard was annoyed with having to climb up and down his ladder to unplug various tools while working on projects in his garage. He approached Quirky with an idea for a cord that could wrap around the leg of a chair or the side of a ladder.
Quirky designs and manufactures real people’s inventions by inviting the public to submit and participate in the development process. At meetings held online and in person at Quirky’s headquarters in New York City, members gather to evaluate ideas. Quirky’s designers, engineers, and marketing experts work closely with the community on nearly all aspects of development to bring approved ideas to life. Each Quirky product is a direct response to an everyday problem.
