A warm welcome to the new product ideas from September 1961 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1961.
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 1961 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.
Double-life shipping cartons for gas-station supplies. Per-printed with signs in fluorescent ink, they could be given to customers when empty. A.J.Preuss, Campbell, California.
Changeable glue spouts for squeeze bottles. One wide-spread, one needle-nosed, and one regular would take care of a variety of glueing jobs. - Terry Dawson, Manhattan Beach, California.
Socket-wrench extensions with knurled ends to permit easy spin-off of loosened nuts, even though the tool and your hands might be oily. - J.I.Mitchelle, Horseheads, N.J.
Book matches with pressure adhesive on the back. Then you could stick the folder to the cigarette package and it would never be mislaid. - Clarence Brady, San Fernando, California.
Transparent fuel tanks on power lawn mowers so you could tell at a glance how much gas you had left instead of running dry in the middle of the lawn. - Sam Gainer, Austin, Texas.
