Actually, I think we had a discussion of this word a couple of years back,
and, if memory serves, it derives from the manufacturer of the kit.
But that's about as much as I can remember.

Anyone ever hear of the word "doppkit" used for the shaving kits
servicement used in WWII? Tom Murray has heard it from a 60ish colleague,
but its not in DARE or anywhere else.
Also: The elliptical construction with "like," e.g., "the dog likes
petted." This is similar to "the car needs washed" or "the cat wants
out," both well attested. Anyone heard of similar ellipses with "like"?
