Click and Carry

click and carryKim Meckwood seeks an investor for Click and Carry, her “handle” for carrying multiple shopping bags, in Shark Tank episode 1125. The idea literally came to her in a dream back in 2008. She took the idea and hired a student from the Pasadena Design School to make a 3D printer prototype. After some tinkering, she found success with her second mold and decided to manufacture, patent and sell the product.

Kim has a background in medical device sales, so she knows how to get a product “out there.” Initially, she sold Click and Carry at Farmer’s markets and swap meets, but when she developed breast cancer, she put her product on the back burner. After beating cancer, she decided to go full throttle with Click and Carry. Her life changed when a buyer from QVC saw the product at the Home + Housewares show in Chicago. After having some success on QVC, she was able to get the product into stores like Ralphs, The Container Store, CorningWare, ShopRite and on Amazon.

The product itself is fairly straightforward. It’s basically a gel grip handle with a rotating top that lets you slide in multiple shopping bags. You can carry them with your hand or hang them over your shoulder. You can literally “wear” your shopping bags. Kim wants to expand on demonstrating the product in stores by creating mini screen point of purchase displays that demonstrate the product in stores. That takes money and she hopes a Shark will help with that.
