This is a boy meets girl story. The boy loves welding and fabricating metal. The girl loves football. Thankfully they had other things in common – a mutual love of spending time with friends, good natured competition and of course a little party.
Girl took boy to his first – yes, his first – football game and boy fell in love with tailgating. And with her, of course.
But the boy saw problems with the tailgate. Errant footballs nearly took out the TV. The host struggled to find his grilling gear behind the TV propped up in the back of the truck. “Enthusiastic” tailgaters randomly wobbled into the fold out table nearly crashing the TV. The boy knew there must be a way to have fun without fearing for the life of the TV. And thus, Tailgate TV Stand was born.
Design, testing and market research began in 2010 with the first prototype ready in 2011. We wanted the Tailgate TV Stand to be an affordable American made product so we partnered with local machine shops in Georgia and South Carolina to find the best materials. Tailgating is not a gentle sport so the product had to be robust. We also wanted the Tailgate TV Stand to be universal for any tailgater. The Tailgate TV Stand offers a 360° rotation to allow for access to gear and grub that you can expect with a tailgate and allows the user to adjust the view and avoid the unbearable glare from the sun.
The response our Tailgate TV Stand has been far beyond our expectations since its introduction to the wonderful world of tailgating. We are proud to say it has been embraced by tailgaters across the United States and is considered essential gear for those who have experienced it. We are excited to see many new happy tailgaters in the future.
