Slingshot designed and engineered The Walkie Way, a combination pet collar and leash. Through the design process, Slingshot proposed multiple forms and functional solutions for the pet product. Slingshot engineers implemented three different sized designs that would be appealing to the consumer and easily manufacturable. The key challenge was minimizing the spool size while achieving maximum pull strength.
Slingshot’s Engineering team also worked with the manufacturers to make the product cost-effective and robust. Additionally, Slingshot completed the artwork for marketing hang tags and information sheets. In the end, Slingshot delivered a fully designed, engineered, manufactured part that is being sold through Direct Response Television and local retailers.
