Sedalia Chamber Cuts Ribbon for SpotterCone
SpotterCone was honored by the Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce with a ribbon cutting ceremony held Wednesday at 600 E. Third Street to launch its Kickstarter campaign.
SpotterCone is an innovative product that will revolutionize how operators of large vehicles put their vehicles into reverse and is in need of support to start production. SpotterCone’s Kickstarter campaign launched on Friday, Dec. 16 and will run for 30 days.
The goal of SpotterCone on Kickstarter is $20,000, which will help fund necessary tooling needed to produce the product. SpotterCone is also being pre-sold on Kickstarter.
George Owens, inventor of SpotterCone stated, “I’m excited for our product to be on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a great way for us to share our product that started in Sedalia with the masses of the world and to also get the last push of funding we need.”
Owens says no matter the amount of experience a driver has SpotterCone will help, seasoned truck drivers or weekend RV drivers back up quicker, easier and safer.
SpotterCone takes the guesswork out of aligning and stopping a vehicle in the correct position. SpotterCone is placed at the spot the vehicle needs to go, the driver then uses SpotterCone with or without a human spotter to efficiently and safely back into the desired area.
SpotterCone is equipped with laser guidance, which provides lines that run parallel to the vehicle. The cones are illuminated and each cone is color coded using the universal colors for right and left. SpotterCone has an ultra-sonic sensor built into the cones that will alert the driver with a stop light when the vehicle is within the desired area.
SpotterCone, when placed, indicates to others in the vicinity that a vehicle is backing up, which could lessen the number of back-over fatalities. SpotterCone is a versatile product and can be used in any weather condition. The cones are equipped with flashing warning lights, which makes SpotterCone a great choice in a roadside emergency. The cones are easily transportable and are built to withstand a variety of environmental conditions.
The founders of SpotterCone know from experience that time is money. SpotterCone is designed to decrease trial and error on the job, making businesses more efficient and profitable.
SpotterCone was the brainchild of George Owens, who developed a prototype after working in the oil fields and seeing first-hand the difficulties and lack of safety when backing up semitrailers in tight spaces. Owens’ prototype started off as two five gallon buckets, but with engineering and years of trial and error Conesafe LLC now has a patented product to begin producing and selling on a mass scale.
Conesafe LLC was founded in 2014 with the purpose of making operating vehicles of any size easier and safer. Conesafe LLC was co-founded by George Owens and Jim Cook. Conesafe LLC is in the process of creating new ways to make operating vehicles safer.
