About Us

Tom Burr created Kwik-Hang in 2013 to solve a common, stressful household chore. Although he worked in the jewelry business for most of his life, Tom saw the need for a simple way to hang curtains, which didn’t involve multiple people, inconvenient tools and endless parts.

Using a piece of cardboard as his first prototype, Tom took his invention to various manufacturers until he found a partner who agreed to make it.

After his health began to fail, Tom passed on the business to his son Derrek, a police officer and veteran, who now runs the company.

While Kwik-Hang has since expanded to offer new styles, the first Kwik-Hang product created over five years ago is nearly identical to the one sold today.
