Airhook will help the passenger to travel more comfortable. It is a multipurpose hook where the passenger can put the jacket, headphone and phone or iPad on the Airhook. The Airhook was funded in just over 73 hours.
Airhook is invented by a Seattle-based Craig Rabin and it is an insignificant piece of plastic, now installed in many airbuses. This hook was created to hold a jacket, a cup and now the device. Airhook is a stable drink holder, and it has a secure hook to mount the electronic device. The installation of Airhook is very simple. A traveller can simply attach the device’s anchor over the top of the tray table. There is a place for a beverage in the opening.
The idea of Airhook came from a flight that Craig Rabin took several months ago. He was wearing a sport coat and considered using the tray table as a way to hold his coat up. A few weeks later on another flight, Craig Rabin ordered coffee and realised he had had nowhere to put his cup if using his tray table for a hook. This sparked Rabin to create a solution that incorporated Airhook, with a device holder that features an adjustable cord, so it could hold a larger range of mobile phones, smartphones and the tablets.
Airhook slithers in behind a latched tray table on just about any aeroplane. Previously, it was demonstrated in “The Museum of Flight”. Airhook is easy to install and stays in place, even if the person in front shakes the seat. There are about 20,000 Airhooks in 3 colours are currently installed in the aeroplanes flying all over the world.
This Seattle inventor donates a percentage of each sale of the Airhook to cancer research to honour his mother, who died of the disease.
