A warm welcome to the new product ideas from June 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.
Hinged aluminum tents you could fold up for easy transporting. They'd be waterproof and rustproof and would reflect the sun to make a cool shelter. - R.Eschleman, Reading, Pa.
Car top garment bags fitted with long straps that could be passed through the windows and buckled. Clothes hung inside a car cut visibility. - F.M.Matthews, Millington, Tenn.
Obviously this was a great idea as you car rooftop storage nags are commonplace nowadays and are used for storing all kinds of things, not just clothes.
Ice stick freezer trays. Depressions the size of a carpenter's pencil would turn out ice shaped to slide through the neck of a small pop bottle. - Phil Liston, Wooster, Ohio.
A safety lock for power windows on cars. An electrical switch, controlled by the driver, would cut off power when children were in the car. A.J.Dallaire, Opa Locka, Fla.
Another great idea that is commonplace in most cars today.
Head markings on bolts that require cotter pins. With a notch in the same plane as the hole, even working blind you could slip the pin in with ease. - G.Wilson, N.Guilford, Conn.
