Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Twist Lid, to applicable companies for their consideration.

PITTSBURGH...Opening conventional tin cans can be a difficult and even unsafe task, and once they are open the contents are vulnerable to contamination. Also, many women risk breaking their nails while opening the cans. "In order to solve these problems, I came up with the MODIFIED/RETROFIT CAN OPENING," said an inventor from Pacoima, Calif.

This modified can lid can be opened more easily and safely. It prevents hassle and broken nails, as well as keeps contents fresh and safe from contamination. It also eliminates the inconvenient step of wiping the lid because of belief that it’s dirty and contaminated with harmful microorganisms, or viruses. Consumers will appreciate and value this new innovation, and the FDA may see this change as a pro-safety step improvement to protect the consumer’s safety, thus indicating that the client cares for its consumers. Overall, it promotes enjoyment and peace of mind.

Ergonomic, easy to use and producible in different sizes, colors and designs (such as logos), the MODIFIED/RETROFIT CAN OPENING serves as an improved alternative to conventional tin-can lids.

The original design was submitted to the Los Angeles office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
