I have a new product, U.S. patent # 7694430.
It is a locking plug system.
First application is a harley style locking oil plug,Thats a good product,the plug goes in,then the dipstick,when the dipstick goes in the plug plumps up and locks. The second application is replacing caps for truck fuel tanks with this system and every thing else with a tube on tank desighn.
The Locking fuel caps Offered Currently usually dont work well , there part plastic and not very secure,Most of the truckers I talked to wont buy them because they can be broke off easey and that leads to a damaged or scratched tank, or damage to the threds on the fill tube, this plug has a sleeve that fits over the threads,and once this plug system is on,it wont come off or leak unless it is unlocked, theives will know this and just move on to a differnt target.With this locking plug,it secures at the bottom of the fill tube,
there is nothing much to pry on,its all metal and rubber,and will spin in the hole.
You can check out the patent at uspto.gov,To see the provisional desighns, type in the issued patent number, then continuty data, then click on one or the other provisional numbers , every possible desighn style is covered in the patent and provisionals.
I have practical drawings and am looking for some help manufactureing,I am in Florida,Tampa bay area,We will need some mold work,cast work,and machining.I'd like to find some one close I can work with,but if I cant,i'll deal with some one elsewhere. This product line has a lot of potential.I also need some custom style locks for the dipstick and other applications,if you know any one that makes custom locking systems please send them here.
