This Charlotte Inventor Raised $60,000 On KickStarter By Gluing Magnets To A Strip Of Plastic


Brian Conti is a native to the Charlotte region who still has a day job as a design engineer, despite his numerous inventions and product launches. That may soon change when his most recent product hits the assembly line, a product that has now been featured by Huffington Post and ABC News.

Conti’s new invention is the bottleLoft, which he calls, “the world’s first magnetic bottle hanger for your refrigerator.”

The device is a plastic strip with three strong round magnets attached to lift and store metal-capped bottles in the air, freeing up shelf space in the fridge. An adhesive back makes it easy to install.

Through Kickstarter, an online fundraising tool, bottleLoft attracted 1,300 backers who ordered 3,300 units.
