Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 14, 2009
InventHelp®, America's leading inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Anderson, Ind., has designed a modified guide pole to aid the truck driver in judging the distance between the front of the truck's bumper and other obstacles. This invention is patented.
The "B.U.M.P." (Bumper Utility Mechanical Poles) would enable the driver to determine the exact position of the front of the truck without having to get out of the cab. The invention could serve as a reference guide to eliminate guesswork when trying to maneuver the truck, and could enhance the driver's ability to navigate the truck through tight spaces. Designed to reduce the incidence of accidents, the B.U.M.P. would remain virtually out of view when not in use.
The invention would consist of retractable guide poles that attach to the front bumper of a semi-truck. Each unit would consist of an antenna-like pole and housing. The pole would be telescopic, featuring a yellow light positioned on top to aid nighttime driving. To use, the driver would push a remote control switch similar to a garage door opener. The poles would extend out of the housing so that they would be in the driver's view. The B.U.M.P. could be produced for both square bumpers and round bumpers. According to the inventor, the poles could also be mounted on one or both sides of the truck.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
