Improved Marking Tool Invented by InventHelp Client (MLM-554)

Share Article

Founded in 1984, InventHelp is attempting to submit the ZIP LINE to applicable companies for their review and potential feedback.

While a standard chalk reel comes in handy as a marking tool, it has one drawback: The string has to be manually rewound. Well, thanks to an inventor from Muscoda, Wis., that is no longer the case.

He developed ZIP LINE to automatically rewind string in a chalk reel. As such, it eliminates the need to manually rewind the string. As a result, it prevents the string from becoming tangled. Another advantage is that it is designed for one-handed use, leaving the other hand free. Besides saving time and effort in retracting the string, it is also convenient, easy to use and affordably priced. In addition, it is lightweight, portable and built to last.

The inventor's personal experience inspired the idea. "Since all of the other chalk reels I could find on the market had to be manually rewound, I decided to simplify and speed up the rewinding process," he said.

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