What is the SleekEZ? Some sort of miracle grooming aid, perhaps, as claimed by many of its users. We've put together a few questions and answers that might help you out in your quest for knowledge:
WHO CREATED THE SLEEKEZ?
The SleekEZ was created by SleekEZ, LLC, a company located in the USA and organized in Wyoming. Our patent application is filed with the USTPO and we have requested that it be unpublished.
THE SLEEKEZ IS CREATED WITH WHAT MATERIALS?
The SleekEZ is comprised of a water-based ("green") lacquered, poplar wood handle embedded with a metal blade The blade material is manufactured from high carbon alloy steel. A special heat treating process gives a spring tempered hardness to back of blade. This quality allows more tension for added rigidity. The unique wave tooth pattern is comprised of a unique tooth pattern manufactured exclusively for SleekEZ, LLC. This is not a blade that can be purchased at your local hardware store or anywhere but with SleekEZ.
WHERE IS THE SLEEKEZ MANUFACTURED?
We at SleekEZ are proud to claim that our product is made 100 percent in the USA. All products used in the manufacturing of the SleekEZ, from the wood, to the glue, to the blade, and the lacquer are manufactured in the USA. We know that we can have our product made much less expensively outside of the US, but we feel that it is morally wrong to use labor that makes pennies per hour. Furthermore, all of the components of the SleekEZ are "green" for a reason. Countries outside of the US do not usually have the same standards set for release of pollutants and often dump toxins into their waterways injuring the same people that are getting only pennies for labor. We don't want to contribute to such practices.
After pulling some strings, SleekEZ can now offer free shipping on international orders. However, there are strings attached.
The order must be $120 or more to have the shipping costs waived. That total is equivalent to six horse SleekEZs. The shipment will be sent via USPS First Class mail.
"We have had a number of inquiries over that past couple of years from Europe and Australia wanting breaks on shipping costs," Jennifer Tipton, president of SleekEZ said. "We also were sending SleekEZ to people that boarded at the same facility. So, it made sense to offer free as we occasionally offer free shipping within the United States."
Presently, SleekEZ has a significant amout of purchasers from France, England, Australia, Switzerland and Canada.
It has been brought to our attention that the links to various retailers on the Retailers Page by Country are not functioning. We have submitted a ticket to the webstore host and hope to have this matter corrected as soon as possible.
Bright Future Farms Equine Charity had such success with SleekEZ's Give Back Program last year that they requested another this year.
Beginning April 15, 2013 all supporters of BFFEC will need to enter "BFFEC" into the discount code box. SleekEZ will give back 50 percent of all sales with this code to BFFEC at the end of one month.
They are a 501(c)(3) equine charity that "saves, rehabilitates, and finds loving, forever homes for horses that have been abused, abandoned, or rescued from shipping to slaughter. [They] also provide permanent sanctuary to elderly and disabled horses that former owners have callously discarded."
