Available for licensing.PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Wrapsit™ is a coated mesh & polyester slipcover that attaches around the base of traditional, scissor-legged folding quad chairs creating a large, dry fully enclosed space anytime the chair is opened.
Wrapsit gives active owners of small pets a convenient pet containment option during attendance at many activities without the need for a separate, bulky stand-alone crate and without taking up extra space. It's also great for corralling and securing all the stuff we drag along to events. Adds comfort, security and freedom on the soccer sideline, around the campfire, during tailgate parties, on the beach, at RV rallies... goes everywhere our chairs go!
To install Wrapsit, place the closed chair in the center of the durable polyester floor of the Wrapsit unit and open chair until all four feet rest in the Wrapsit's corners. The four mesh walls are then lifted around the outside of the chair legs where 3 security clips on the upper back of the slipcover attach to the rear seat of the chair between the back uprights. The security flap covers the clips and lays between the uprights and the back of the chair where it secures at each side of the chair with hook and loop. The seat flap lays on the chair seat and secures on both sides with corresponding hook and loop on the upper sides of the unit. The entire process takes less than 3 minutes to complete and creates a dry, ventilated roomy cubicle for small pets or for all those extras such as blankets, purses, cameras, etc. right beneath the owner's seat - literally! Three zippers meet at an upper corner of the chair and unzip to expose the large diamond-shaped opening at the front corner of the chair for easy in-and-outs and access to the interior.
When ready to go, Wrapsit simply collapses with the chair and wraps closed to become a carrying case with sturdy handle and convertible shoulder strap/leash. That's right... once in place, the cover remains with the chair and only needs to be removed for washing or, if desired, for transfer between chairs. How much more simple and convenient could it be?

How does your product differ over competing products?
Wrapsit logically fits within the pet category but crosses easily into the outdoors and sports and recreation categories offering several display locations within a store. Wrapsit offers customers an instantaneous, roomy 5 cu. ft. soft crate in the same footprint as the folding chair it is installed on - great in tight spaces! Wrapsit fits over the base of the chair without inhibiting the chair's function as seating. It is always ready to go anytime and anywhere the chair is used.
