New Product Ideas From July 1962

By Martin Gilliard

A warm welcome to the new product ideas from July 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.

Sand Runners

This is an idea for a sand runner that you would clip on to shopping carts. Then you could use the cart for hauling picnic food and equipment to the edge of the beach using the wheels and then drag it over the sand by using the runners. - R.A.Shaw, Ardsley, New York


Trap Doors In The Floors Of Cars

Trap doors in the floors of cars would enable you to whisk out sand and dirt that can't be swept out over the rise at the door sills. - Mrs. W.S. Wilbur, Miami Springs, Fla.

Safe Power Mowers

This is an ide for a safe power mower with a deadman's switch built in to the handle. Releasing the pressure of your hand, as in a fall, would cut off the current from the magneto. - Jim Sutro, Los Angeles.

Self-Sealing Pockets On Swimsuits

Self-sealing pockets on swimsuits. A waterproof flapless pocket of heavy polyplastic, grooved at the top so the sides stick together similar to Zip-Lock bags would do it. R-J.West, Chicago.

Precast Building Block With Molded In Recesses

Precast building block with molded-in recesses to take electric outlet boxes. This would save a lot of hammering and chipping out of concrete. - H.P.Fischer, Rochester, Pa.
