Mechanical Support Tool Invented for Duct Installation (DPH-105)

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Residential Trunk Jack, to applicable companies for their consideration.

PITTSBURGH…Until now the installation of HVAC dusts in residential forced air systems has required brutally uncomfortable tasks for the workers involved. To alleviate this situation, an inventor from Denver, Colo., has come up with a much less time-consuming and labor-intensive option.

He developed RESIDENTIAL TRUNK JACK to provide a comfortable and safe mechanical alternative to the painful manual process of HVAC duct installation. As such, it enables one worker to install an entire trunk line unassisted and without enduring any pain. Similarly, it allows two installers working together to do the job easier and faster. As a result, it saves time, effort and expense, which improves worker productivity and enhances customer service. In addition, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced.

The inventor’s work experience inspired the idea. “In current residential HVAC duct installations, one installer holds the trunk pieces in position by hand while another worker secures the trunk in place,” he said. “Since this is a grueling and painful task for the one holding the trunk, I wanted to find an easier way.”

The original design was submitted to the Denver office of InventHelp. It is currently patent pending and available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
