A warm welcome to the new product ideas from January 1962 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1962.
Perhaps there is something here that sparks your imagination? Maybe you too can come up with a fantastic, new idea for a product. If so, and if it's something that you would like to share with the rest of the world then please do so by visiting my creative ideas page where you will find a form for submitting your creative ideas.
Please note that as these ideas were from 1962 some of them may now be in common use today or simply irrelevant due to them being related to an old fashioned product or concept.
Here is an idea for sandpaper shoe soles. They'd be ideal for icy weather. They would have contact adhesive on the back. You would strip them off and discard them when indoors. - Dr. S.M.Dooreck, Brooklyn, New York.
A combination door and cap for automobile gas tanks would eliminate reaching behind the access door. The cap would be made out of soft rubber and attached to the door with an extended spring. - N.G.K bler, Rome, New York.
A pipe fitting that would be a combination check valve and a globe valve. Why not a ball knuckle on a stem to mate with a socket on a clapper? - A.Weigle, Newberry, S.C.
Hinged steel mesh for reinforcing concrete. Then a handyman wouldn't need a truck to haul it and six men to stomp it when pouring a patio. - Darrell Huff, Pacific Grove, California.
This idea for a cordless vacuum cleaner would use batteries that could be recharged. This would mean that you wouldn't be hindered from the dragging cord. - Ruth Schrader, Clarksburg, California.
