InventHelp Inventor Develops Improved Electrical Box (LAX-460)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp is working to submit this idea, the Lay-in Drop Box, to companies for their review.

"I was in my attic tracing wires, and I wanted to add a drop, and the cable was too tight to install a box and wire nut, so I looked online and could not find anything that would work. This inspired me to invent this," said an inventor from Azusa, Calif.

He developed the LAY-IN DROP BOX to provide a very easy method for providing one or more extra drops from an electrical cable when the existing cable was too short to make the extra connections with wire nuts after being cut. The design eliminates the need to take the time to run extra cable to an area so as to install one or more extra lines. It allows for connection to another drop box, if required at some later date. The box is designed for ease of installation, compactness, time savings and reasonable price. Additionally, it is producible in larger sizes, and it is designed for ease of use.

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