InventionHome is pleased to announce the successful completion of their 112th marketing/license agreement, 32 of which occurred in calendar year 2010 (as of September 30th).  An impressive tally of brokered deals.


InventionHome’s most recent licensing success is a product called CapTails™.  The patented device connects glasses (sunglasses, safety glasses, etc.) to a hat by means of stretchable and adjustable clips and a cord.  CapTailsTM allow the user to wear their eyewear on top of their cap and not have to worry about them falling off and getting lost or broken. Also when your glasses are on, your cap can not blow away.

The licensee of the clever device took interest in the product because of its simplicity and unique position in the market.  It will complement the rest of their product line nicely, and has already drawn the interest of a national retailer.  CapTailsTM should reach the retail market in early 2011.

Monroeville, PA. June 29, 2010 – InventionHome is pleased to recap our recent tradeshow adventures.  In early May, we sponsored the “Inventors Spotlight” area of the National Hardware Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  InventionHome president, Russell Williams, served as a judge/panelist along with other esteemed invention-industry experts.  Nearly 80 inventors participated in the pavilion, and found immeasurable value in both the educational speaker series and the show traffic which included representatives from Black & Decker, Ace Hardware, Home Depot and thousands of other hardware manufacturers and retailers.

When inventors Mark Higgins and Vivian Hurd first conceived the idea of a new invention that would transfer conventional recessed lighting into directional lighting, they never imagined that one day their invention would be sold under one of the world’s most recognizable brands, General Electric.

The inventors, with the help of InventionHome, licensed their patented invention to Jasco Products Company.  Jasco is a GE licensee of consumer electronic accessories, computer accessories, home electric products, personal security and surveillance products.  Their products are sold in thousands of retail stores, including Lowe’s, Home Depot, Target, etc. 

Mark and Vivian never aspired to develop, manufacture and sell their invention themselves.  They knew that the financial risks were far too great, and frankly they preferred to team up with a company that already had the knowledge, resources and distribution channels needed to make the invention a success.  So the pair set out in search of licensing opportunities for their invention, and soon teamed up with InventionHome whose streamlined marketing program quickly brought exposure to their invention, and ultimately, the license with Jasco.   

 It is every inventor’s dream to see their product on retail shelves, and inventors Mark and Vivian are very close to realizing that dream.  Says Vivian, “It is such a thrill to see our invention come to life and be packaged under such a well-known brand as GE.  The potential for financial success is now very real for us.”

Monroeville, PA – InventionHome is pleased to announce a versatile pet product available for licensing called the Tug Toss and Bait Training Toy. 


Independent inventor Candy Lynch searched for a tool  that would function as an outdoor training aid for her medium-sized dog and provide fun and amusement when inside the house.   After careful thought and a series of designs, she came up with a hybrid product called the Tug Toss and Bait Training Toy.


The Tug Toss and Bait Training Toy is a rugged product that allows a pet owner to teach a dog to retrieve or fetch the item during training sessions.  The versatile unit is also well-suited as an indoor toy that the dog can enjoy during play time. 


Lynch’s toy can be customized to appeal to various breeds, sizes, and skill levels.  While a Golden Retriever or larger breed may require a toy with a handle suitable for tossing, an agility dog will respond better to a tug toy which can be thrown over obstacles by the handler.  Each design contains a handle on one end and a tennis-sized ball on the opposite end.  A compartment located between the handle and ball will hold a squeaking toy or treat to encourage the dog while training or at play.


InventionHome  is actively seeking companies interested in licensing the Tug Toss and Bait Training Toy.  If you would like to see additional images or learn more about the product, please call (866) 844-6512 x 119.

Pet Belt

Monroeville, PA – InventionHome is pleased to announce an innovative pet product, available for licensing, from independent inventor Roy Garcia called the Pet Belt.


California resident Roy Garcia watched fellow pet walkers juggle keys, a leash, cell phone, dog treats and waste bags during his early morning and late afternoon walks.  Although Garcia made it a rule to only carry essential items with him during his twice daily excursions, he found himself searching for keys and a cell phone on more than one occasion.


Garcia came up with a solution to better organize pet walkers’ personal items called the Pet Belt.  The Pet Belt is an adjustable product worn around the waist that includes two pockets attractively designed to fit an MP3 player and cell phone.  The product has storage compartments to hold smaller items such as keys, currency and even a garage door remote.  A small zip-top bag component is perfect for dog treats and a second unit of the same size is ideal for waste bags. There is also a unique cup-holding component to carry a beverage or water container.  Each compartment can be easily removed and replaced along the belt, as desired. Several heavy-duty clips are permanently positioned along the belt so pet owners with more than one dog can enjoy a leisurely stroll or run.     


Garcia and InventionHome are actively seeking companies interested in licensing the Pet Belt.   If you would like to see additional images or learn more about the product, please call (866) 844-6512 x 119, or email us at member@inventionhome.com.
