Outdoor Lumber Protector Invention by InventHelp Client (POO-221)

Share Article

A Pittsburgh-based invention firm, InventHelp is submitting the BOARD BOOT to companies for their possible feedback.

Outdoor items such as picnic tables, playground sets and decks are often constructed with pressure-treated lumber, which makes the lumber more resistant to the elements. That does not mean that the pressure-treated lumber is not susceptible to rot or corrosion caused by the weather.

An inventor from Culver, Ore., has invented the patent-pending BOARD BOOT, a newly designed piece of hardware that protects the lower end of dimensional lumber from rot. "My wife and I invented this item during a DIY project," said the inventor. "We did not want our outdoor wooden storage rack to rot at the bottom of the boards so we developed this invention to combat it." BOARD BOOT eliminates ground contact with the supports of wooden structures to prolong its lifetime.

The original design was submitted to the Portland office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 15-POO-221, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368.
