Featured Invention: HydroRoot

hydroroot

HydroRoot is an eco-friendly plant watering receptacle designed to quickly and easily deliver water and liquid fertilizer to plant root zones. The device reduces water consumption, time, and expenses for all plant growers.

When watering a garden the majority of individuals use a garden hose to saturate the ground until they feel the plants are adequately watered. However, the amount of water coming from a hose averages three to five gallons per minute. This amount of water not only over-saturates the plants, but also increases water consumption and therefore water costs. Surface watering with a hose or sprinkler also waters the surrounding soil, which encourages weed production This can result in hours spent weeding. At the same time, the plants in the garden may be under nourished. Plants that reside on a slope may not get the water or fertilizer they need due to the run-off. It is difficult for a gardener to tell if the plant has received the proper amount of water and nutrients.

 

Featured Invention: HANGTIGHT™

hangtight

HANGTIGHT™ is an ultra-convenient ladder accessory that enables tradesmen, homeowners, and more to hang tools from either or both sides of an extension ladder—increasing safety and productivity.

Working on ladders with various tools can be extremely dangerous, especially when tools are placed loosely on ladder rungs or hang precariously from tool belts. Additionally, people may drop expensive tools and pieces of equipment, not only damaging the dropped items and surrounding property but also potentially injuring others on the floor.

HANGTIGHT™ holds tools and equipment at arm’s length when working on a ladder. This innovative product comprises a compact, durable, and lightweight ladder accessory that holds up to 35 pounds of tools, equipment, and supplies on either or both sides of a ladder. The HANGTIGHT™ makes ladder work safer and more productive by reducing the number of trips required up and down ladders. This unique accessory fits all modern Louisville® or Werner® extension ladders and many others for nearly universal use. An anchor ring also allows for attachment to tool lanyards and leashes, preventing dropped tools and equipment from elevated positions.

To install the HANGTIGHT™, firmly grasp the accessory like the handlebar of a bicycle and turn the knob clockwise with the other hand until it expands to almost fit a ladder rung. Next, climb the ladder to the desired height and insert the HANGTIGHT™ into the open end of a ladder rung until it stops. Turn the knob clockwise until it securely locks into place. To remove, simply turn the knob counter-clockwise until loose and slide it out. Single-handed installation means the accessory can quickly be moved from rung to rung. Its compact design also allows the HANGTIGHT™ to be easily stowed in a tool belt or jacket.

Then, the device is placed against the skin where facial hair needs to be removed. The spring can grasp onto facial hair, and the user twists the handles inward and outward in a continuous motion as the spring is moved along facial hair. Users may feel a slight tingling sensation as hair is quickly and efficiently removed.

Featured Invention: Zipper Genie

Zipper Genie is a device that assists women with zipping and unzipping dresses and other garments quickly and conveniently without help from another person, while doubling as a fashion accessory when not in use.

It can be difficult for women to zip and unzip dresses and shirts with a zipper down the back, whether dress shopping alone, traveling for business or pleasure, or simply home alone. Women often find themselves twisting around or painfully contorting their body to shimmy the zipper up or down. Additionally, this can be especially problematic for plus-size women, the elderly with limited mobility, and pregnant women.

Zipper Genie hooks and zips any dress in a few simple steps, allowing women to confidently flaunt their look. This innovative product may comprise a curb chain, a metal hook, a metal clip, and a suede leather tassel. The hook can attach to a zipper by inserting the hook through the hole on the zipper’s pull-tab. The clip can be secured to the dress until ready to zip up.

When ready, women can firmly place one hand near the base of the zipper, and pull the chain straight up. They can then secure their clip to the dress, accessorizing the ensemble with the decorative tassel and chain. For zippers without a hole in the pull tab, simply attach the hook to the jump ring. Additionally, the tassel can be offered in a wide range of colors to complement any outfit or look. The exact specifications may vary upon manufacturing.
