Inventor Develops Device for Securing a Trash-Receptacle Lid (HLW-1837)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Secured Lock, to applicable companies for their consideration.

"I hate to see garbage bins without lids. I knew that there had to be a better way to ensure that the lid remained secured to the bin," said an inventor from Miami, Fla. "That way, lids would no longer blow away or get lost. My invention solves this problem."

He created a prototype for the patent-pending SECURED LOCK to ensure that the lid remains connected to the trash receptacle. It prevents the lid from being blown away by strong gusts of wind. Thus, it keeps the lid from being lost. Also, it stops trash inside the can from flying around. This improves safety and sanitation. Additionally, the unit keeps the trash receptacle looking neat and clean.

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