    Hi Peter,

    Inventors make the world go round – if nothing else, they make it all the more interesting!

    I wish you all the best with your invention, and I hope someone will get in touch with you to help you bring your product nearer to fruition and commercialization.

    Hi Folks,
    I am inventor with no skills on marketing and my invention is about safety.
    The patent number is 6, 042,130.
    My product is a safe way to transport a 20 pound gas grill propane tank to and from sport events, camping and refilling.
    The name of this device is ( PRS7 ) Propane Refilling Seat.
    A quick reference is the baby car seat just take the baby out and put a 20,lb propane tank in it with the same seat belt action. This would be a safe way to transport and protect the auto seat.
    The PRS7 will have 2 wheels and a retractable extended handle.
    I have more inventions that are on hold until I can obtain a friend to help make the world a safer place to live.
    Thanks for this opportunity.
    Peter

    Hi Florence,

    Whoa… you may want to ease off on the caps! =)

    In any case, your cause is just. However I’m not sure if the judges are looking for something along this idea.

    Wish you all the best!
