Hello! My name is Tim Krejci, a boat enthusiast and the maker of Slick Sticks! My product is designed to improve the safety and styling of your boat trailer lighting. Boat trailer lighting has remained the same for many years. The major problem with the current industry standards is that the lights for the trailer are the first things that go underwater when you load or unload your boat.
This problem leads to many safety issues with trailers having dim lights or lights that are not functioning at all. Slick Sticks’ innovative new design allows boaters to have LED brake lights, turn signals, running lights, and even a top marker light that never need to touch the water!
Macy Leopold grew up in a small town in central Texas, with two brothers and a father that all love the outdoors. So, hunting and fishing have always been a big part of her life. After meeting her boyfriend, a fishing guide and tournament fisherman, she relocated to the Gulf Coast in Galveston. While guiding he met a great customer named Tim Krejci which quickly formed into a lasting friendship. Not too long after meeting Mr. Krejci he introduced us to marine product he had invented, an innovative trailer light system for boats to solve the constant headache of trailer lights from the past. After seeing my boyfriend’s issues dues to faulty trailer lights, we thought the product was absolutely GENIUS. With that I decided to take a leap of faith and jump into a field I had no experience in and go all in helping Slick Sticks grow. I knew we had a great product with a team around me that not only REALLY believe in me but also believe in the product. Now we are years down the road growing faster than we ever imagined, still backing a great product with some amazing people. I can’t to see what the next few years has in store for our great company!
I originally invented Slick Sticks in 2014. At that time, I had just cleaned and waxed my new Shoalwater bay boat. I had spent a great deal of money to get the boat exactly how I wanted it with custom colors and accessories. However, while looking at the boat, I thought: “Why do I have a $2 white PVC pipe on the side of my trailer as a guide post?”
This led me to think of solutions that would both improve the cosmetic look and the safety of my current trailer setup. It was from there that the idea for Slick Sticks was born. For the next several years, the design and production method of Slick Sticks would evolve into the product that you see today.
This new design also allows boaters to have their trailer lights moved from the bottom of the trailer, where they are often difficult for other drivers to see, to a higher position on the trailer that will put their trailer lights at the eye level of the drivers behind them. Slick Sticks offers boaters a new option in trailer lighting that will improve safety and styling.
