Inventing is about more than just having an idea... It's about taking a chance.






Gary and Ruth Dared to Invent

Eastern Pennsylvania couple Gary and Ruth Frazer came up with their home improvement product idea in the same place that many people do a lot of their thinking... the bathroom. Ruth got tired of loose toilet bolt caps falling off after cleaning or getting carried away by family pets and toddlers. Along with her husband, Gary, she wanted to find a way to secure loose caps to the bolts, for a better-looking, safer bathroom.

Watch as the Davison Inventing Method is used to invent Gary and Ruth's "Twister Bolts!"

About Dare to Invent:

Dare to Invent is a new webisode series from Davison that shows what can happen when everyday people with ideas take the leap of faith - and Dare to Invent. Each 6-8-minute webisode features the true story of a real person's journey through the challenging process of bringing their idea to life, and then trying to take it to the masses. New webisodes will be loaded every two weeks, so be sure to come back. Also, check us out on YouTube.


Davison's research, development and presentation services are provided for an upfront fee paid by the client and a contingent fee (which is a percentage of royalties obtained by the client, if any). New product development is an uncertain endeavor and the use of Davison's services typically does not result in a license agreement, sales on any market or profit to the inventor. Davison does not perform analysis of the feasibility, marketability, patentability or profitability of ideas submitted to it.

About Gary and Ruth

Something in Gary and Ruth Frazer's bathroom really stunk... the existing caps covering the bolts that secured the toilet to the floor were always either loose or broken. Not only was the problem annoying, Gary and Ruth wanted to protect family pets and toddlers from the potential dangers the loose caps could create.

The eastern Pennsylvania couple patented their idea for toilet bolt covers and brought it to Davison. Now, Gary and Ruth's Twister Caps and Twister Bolts have sold at Lowe's, Home Depot and several other major retailers.
