Inventor Mike Esposito invented the Vertical Grill to solve the problem of grease drippings creating smoke flare-ups that leave carcinogens on the food.

The Vertical Grill was designed so that grease drippings fall into a basin at the bottom of the grill. Food is placed in a custom grilling basket and hung between two charcoal heating columns. This also enables the food to be cooked on both sides simultaneously in half the time as conventional grilling. The Grill also has a standard grilling surface at the top which is ideal for toasting buns or roasting corn on the cob.

Monroeville, PA– InventionHome is pleased to feature a patent-protected tool for splitting pills of any shape called the Rotatable Pill Splitter.  Independent inventor Walt Cheney is working with InventionHome to market and license his product to companies in exchange for royalties.

Walt created, prototyped and was awarded a utility patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for his tool that gives individuals the option to halve and quarter pills with great accuracy.

The product consists of a lid and base with interchangeable pill beds in a variety of colors to accommodate a number of standard and unique pill sizes.  When the user wants to split a pill he selects the correct bed to match the pill size and inserts both into the device.  The pill bed holds the pill into the proper position and aligns it with the blade below.  The user rotates the outside lever of the pill bed and presto….the pill is split!

This is a great product for any individual who has a difficult time cutting a pill of any shape.  How many times has a doctor increased or decreased the dosage of a frequently prescribed drug and decided to write a new script for the medication?  In many circumstances the individual could have a supply at home and would love to split or quarter his previously purchased meds to get the right dosage.  The Rotatable Pill Splitter allows the user to be economical and accurate with his medication.

InventionHome continues to market Cheney’s product to interested companies.  For more information on the Rotatable Pill Splitter or invention-related services please contact InventionHome at (866) 844-6512.

Monroeville, PA – InventionHome is pleased to feature a patent-protected teaching tool for children called Skissors.  Independent inventors Dawn and Bob Kenny are working with InventionHome to market and license their product to companies in exchange for royalties.

 

The idea for Skissors began when the mom and dad team noticed their children handling scissors at home.  Fearing their children could injure themselves, Dawn and Bob thought about solutions and created a prototype combining hole covers built into a traditional pair of scissors.  The simple and effective prototype forces a child to properly insert their thumb and index finger the correct depth into the wholes and safely use the tool for home and school projects. 

 

The Kenny’s product was awarded a utility patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. 

 

InventionHome continues to market the Kenny’s product to interested companies.  For more information on Skissors or invention-related services please contact InventionHome at (866) 844-6512.

doghats36Invention Home announces their “Invention of the Week”, “Dog Hats”.  

 

doghats21

Independent inventor Irene Bray wanted her dogs to strut their stuff in style AND comfort…and she enlisted the help of Invention Home to assist her in finding marketing/licensing opportunities for her invention, “Dog Hats”.

 

Do you like to dress your pet, but feel that the look just isn’t complete without a hat?  Inventor Irene Bray likes her pets to be dressed for success, and tried other dog hats/accessories on the market but found them difficult to attach. Irene noticed that they didn’t properly secure to the pet’s head and would fall off with any moderate movement.  Not so with “Dog Hats”!  In addition, many standard pet hat fasteners are uncomfortable for the dog; the dog will squirm and resist the accessory, making everyone frustrated. Not so with “Dog Hats”!  While some existing hats are designed to fit securely, their harness attachments are cumbersome and so noticeable that they take away from the fun aesthetic design of the hat.  Not so with “Dog Hats”! 

 

This invention features two adjustable, elasticized straps, which are designed to criss-cross under the dog’s chin and are fastened to the hat in front of and behind each ear.  They are fully adjustable to fit very large dogs as well as very small dogs and even cats!  Dog Hats may be offered in many sizes and designs.  Irene has an issued Utility Patent as well samples available.

Invention of the Week:  Pet Gard

 

Invention Home announces their “Invention of the Week”. 

 

pet-gard1

 

Independent inventor David Rice enlisted the help of Invention Home to assist him in finding marketing/licensing opportunities for his invention, “Pet Gard”.

 

David wanted a safe way to take his pets with him on his daily errands…

 

Are you a pet lover who wants your pet’s company at all times?  Do you like to take your pet with you in the car, but worry about the heat rising as the animal sits awaiting your return?  Inventor David Rice has designed the perfect product for you!  Pet Gard is a heat and sound activated alarm system designed to warn pet owners that the interior of their vehicle has reached a dangerous temperature. The portable unit consists of two separate components: a monitor and a pager. The monitor is plugged into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter, which activates it.  When the interior of the vehicle reaches a predetermined temperature (factory set), and three similar sounds are detected within 20 seconds, a signal is sent to the pager. The pager will beep until the user presses a “dismiss” button. The beeping will sound again, every 60 seconds, until the user goes back to the vehicle, checks on the pet and either resets the monitor or unplugs it.  David has an issued Utility Patent as well as a finished sample.
