The home for inventors in the construction industry

Hi everyone and thank you for giving people like me (inventors) a place to meet and chat about new things.

My name is Greg, and I worked as a carpenter / contractor for 40 years. I have come up with a new bracket

system for homes that subject to damage from highwinds such as hurricanes, tornadoes and they even work

on homes that are subject to movement from earthquakes as well.

There is nothing like it on the market today, not even close.  My unique bracket design is patent-pending in the

United States, Canada and some other countries.

I am trying to find a company that would be interested in perhaps purchasing my invention and manufacturing it

to the public or to contractors or to both.  Any suggestions to companies that do such a thing?

It  soundes  like  a  good  idea.I  live  in  central  AL.We  don,t  use  hurricane  strpping,extra  brackets,etc.Maybe there  are  some  companies  in  FL.  or  LA.  that  make  these  type  products.

That's a tough nut.  I developed a seismic hold-down bracket back in 1992/94.  It worked really well,  But the big metal fastener companies - SImpsons, Silver - had their own in-house solutions.  Check out a company called 'Hardy Frames' in California.  A possible opportunity.

Hi guys,

I have contacted many companies that do build brackets and I do have a couple that are very interested.  As of Simpsons, they cant come close to my bracket in any way, shape or form. I am trying to find some company that does have the equipment already to do it without having to spend a bunch of money to get started.  I really appreciate your help, thanks and if you think of anything else, please let me know, and Mike, I will chech out Hardy Frames, thank you.

Keep me posted about any possibilities with Hardy Frames.  They already have a distribution system in place.

Hi Mike,

I did send an email along with drawing to Hardy Frames quite some time ago, did not hear anything yet.

Will let you know if i do, thanks.
