Tom Burr created Kwik-Hang in 2013 to solve a common, stressful household chore. After working in the jewelry business for most of his life, Tom saw the need for a simple way to hang curtains — one that didn’t involve multiple people, expensive tools and endless parts.
With 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, 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.
We've come a long way since Tom created the first Kwik-Hang prototype out of a folded piece of cardboard. (And we're just getting started.)
