A warm welcome to the new product ideas from February 1959 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1959.
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 1959 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.
Dual-purpose hubcaps lined with red reflective material. Supported on a folding stand, the hubcap would warn off other motorists after dark. - Frank Palmieri, Paterson, N.J.
No-pump grease guns for cars. They'd use gas cartridges for pressure. Add a grease cartridge loading feature and you'd have a honey of a gun. - Leon L.Morris, Baltimore.
Take-apart flower pots. Big pots cost a lot and sometimes have to be broken to remove a plant for transplanting without damage to the roots. - Mrs. Harley Utz, Vandalia, Ohio.
Dial guards for tiny radios that get lots of handling. A push-in knob to lock or free the dial would prevent loss of the station setting. - D.Pulaski, W.Springfield, Mass.
A fingertip bandage about the size of the rubber fingers used in offices. Adhesive tape around the open end would hold it securely in place. - Jane Maxwell, Tuscaloosa, Ala.
