InventHelp Inventor Creates Graffiti Prevention Device (SFO-277)

Share Article

InventHelp is attempting to submit this idea, the GRAFFITI FOOT BLOCKER, to companies for their consideration.

An inventor from Fremont, Calif., wanted to find a means of preventing graffiti artists from spray painting bridges and overpasses. As such, he developed the patent-pending GRAFFITI FOOT BLOCKER – a fitting that would prevent access to the “I”-beams of bridges and other such structures.

The GRAFFITI FOOT BLOCKER makes it impossible for an individual to stand on or grasp a bridge or overpass “I”-beam. Thus, it discourages the application of graffiti and prevents public eyesores. It also spares municipal, city, and state governments the costs associated with having graffiti removed from infrastructure surfaces.

The inventor was inspired by seeing graffiti on public bridges and overpasses. “I have even seen graffiti artists holding onto bridge “I”-beams while applying spray paint,” said the inventor. “I wanted to create a device that would prohibit access to bridge and overpass “I”-beams and thus ultimately prohibit the application of graffiti on public infrastructure.”

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