InventHelp Inventor Designs Convenient Hands-Free Umbrella (OCC-953)

Share Article

A Pittsburgh-based invention submission firm, InventHelp is working to submit the HELPING HAND to companies for their consideration.

"I had a difficult time pushing a grocery cart while trying to hold an umbrella,” said an inventor, from Compton, Calif. “I thought it would be helpful if there was a hands-free way to use an umbrella, so I came up with this. Also, my mother, as well as others (who are handicapped), are limited by bad weather.” She invented the HELPING HAND.

The HELPING HAND provides hands-free protection from rain and sun. It also enables an individual to use an umbrella while using a wheelchair or walker. As a result, it ensures that hands are free for other tasks and it could help to increase independence and self-esteem. The invention features a lightweight and durable design that is convenient and easy to use so it is ideal for use by individuals who employ mobility aids, parents and shoppers. Additionally, the HELPING HAND is producible in design variations.

The inventor described the invention design. "My design provides protection from the rain while leaving your hands free for other tasks."

The original design was submitted to the Orange County office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 14-OCC-953, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at -
