InventHelp Invention Designed to Prevent Cutting Injuries (SAH-595)

Share Article

InventHelp is submitting this idea, the Safety Tip, to appropriate companies in the hopes of a good faith review.

Whether you raise grapes as a commercial enterprise or simply enjoy growing them on your property, there is now a safer way to pick them. Thanks to two inventors from Sonoma, Calif., the grapes can be harvested without the risk of cutting your hands or fingers.

They developed a prototype for SAFETY TIP to protect those who harvest grapes against cuts to their fingers and hands. It thereby eliminates the time wasted in treating injuries caused by the sharp blades of standard knives.

Furthermore, it saves time and effort because of its improved cutting effectiveness. For grape farmers it reduces absenteeism resulting from worker injuries. Therefore, it improves productivity since it prevents interruptions to the work schedule. What's more, it is convenient, efficient, durable and easy to use, carry and store. In addition, it is compact, lightweight and affordably priced.

The inventors were inspired by their concern for safety. "We’ve seen workers who harvest grapes often get cut since the blades they use are sharp and the grapevines are thick and difficult to cut," one of them said. "We wanted to find a way to make this job easier and safer."

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