Keith was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War. After being honorably discharged; he proceeded to work a lifetime in the food sales industry. In 1989, he welcomed his one and only son into the world; Tyler. Tyler served four years in the Marine Corps Infantry, and completed two combat deployments to Helmand Province, Afghanistan. After being honorably discharged from the Marines, Tyler worked a multitude of jobs to include corrections, private military, and 5 years as a police officer.
T & K was born in August 2018. On an absolute whim, Tyler broke out some leftover material in the garage and began designing gear as a hobby. From October 2018 to the summer of 2019; T & K only sold a few products a month. It would have been easier, and much cheaper, to completely give up on this crazy business idea. Instead, T & K went to the bank and received a 10K line of credit. The rest is history. Today, T & K has developed numerous successful products and continues to grow every single day. The innovation and opportunity to make products better will never stop, nor will our commitment to make our products in the good ol' USA.
Your purchase keeps the lights on in our small shop, employees paid, and allows us to live the AMERICAN DREAM. You, the customer, are appreciated here. If there is anything we can do for you, please do not hesitate to reach out to us!
