A warm welcome to the new product ideas from June 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.
This idea for a canoe outrigger made out of foam with flexible fiberglass boom support would stabilize a canoe and be light in weight for easy transporting to the waters edge. - Peter Mundy, Libertyville, Illinois.
This is an idea for an aluminium foil covered dog feeding dish. The dish would be weighted at the bottom and would have a collar at the top to secure the foil in place. This would remove the need for cleaning the dish - you would instead just throw away the foil liner. E.Bloomingdale, Lindenhurst, New York.
A lift up handle on the front of power mowers would make them safer and easier to lift into a car trunk or to carry it to your shed or down into your basement. - Allen Kast, Tell City, Ind.
A sliding roof panel on station wagons would enable you to transport tall cargo. The cost of the change shouldn't be too great if the tailgate is fitted with crank down windows. - R.A.Couture, Somersworth, N.H.
Screwdriver with spider gears in the handle would enable you to cut the turn ratio in half and give you a lot more power for those difficult to budge, heavy screws. - Charles E. Tuma, Lombard, Ill.
