A warm welcome to the new product ideas from November 1960 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1960.
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 1960 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.
A car-trunk hatch hidden away in the back of the rear seat would enable you to reach into the trunk from inside the car to get small personal articles. You would just lower a center arm rest. This would expose a sliding door that you'd unlock with a key. - Stewart A. Collins, Hackettstown, N.J.
Easy-out wood screws for the jobs around a shop that call for a temporary fastening. A wing-nut head would be just the thing for quick removal. - S.N.Strensic, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
No-squeeze caulking guns powered by gas cartridges. In winter, when the compound is cold and stiff, it takes a strong hand to operate the hand lever. - Andrew Vena, Philadelphia
Rifles that lock so they couldn't be loaded, cocked, or fired. A key-operated device would keep the bolt or other firing mechanism from being moved. F.E.Martz, Calverton, New York.
Illuminated Dustpan Brushes with a flash-light cell pocketed in the handle. Then the user could see in dark closets and under low furniture. - Fred Lettino, Long Island City, New York.
