You may have seen the previous video link from one of our Beta testers in which he shows how he secured a canoe to his RazerLift. He continues to customize his unit, and has now successfully mounted TWO canoes to his RazerLift. Here’s a video of his unit in action:
Analysis & Testing
Company Van – installation complete
So here’s an exciting development; we have a company van, and one of the dozen early-production RazerLifts has been successfully installed on it. Here’s a quick video.
The next RazerLift field unit
I have found that starting a business is mostly just day-to-day progress; it’s a whole lot of little steps. Sometimes it is difficult to remember how much progress you’ve made because each day is only infinitesimally further along than the day before. But every once in a while a series of events converge that provides … Read More
Product Testing – a look under the hood
Most of us don’t think about all the testing and development that goes into a product, we just buy it and expect it to work. But developing and manufacturing a product that “just works” when it is launched into the general public requires significant behind-the-scenes testing and proving, especially when the product is mechanical in … Read More
Major updates (business and personal)

By the end of next week some of those units will be up-and-running on customer … Read More

A recent study claims that roof racks can add an astonishing 25% to your fuel consumption, even if they don’t have any cargo on them at all. Naturally, many people are curious about how well … Read More
First satisfied customers!
We built two alpha prototypes of the RazerLift. One was mounted on my vehicle and the second remained at Tangent’s shop. After reading the article about the RazerLift at Driving.ca, a local Calgarian and his son contacted me. They were planning a road trip across much of North America and they wondered if they might … Read More
A question I often get asked is about the wind noise generated by the RazerLift. We have some initial feedback on that very question, particularly by two recent incidents.
Prototype update – Feb 24, 2016
Since the prototype was mounted on my vehicle a few weeks back I’ve been really swamped. Lots of people have wanted to see it and we’ve done lots of testing and tweaking. This will be a fairly short summary of some of what’s gone on, just to bring interested readers up to speed. First, the … Read More
