Gary and Ruth's Twister Caps

Gary and Ruth
“It has been an overwhelming experience. Our idea sold over several million units and went multi-platinum!”

This invention was created using:
The Davison® 9-Step Inventing Method

Davison’s 9 Step Method offers our clients an informative experience that utilizes our technology and leverages our dedicated team of project managers designers, builders, and licensing agents who walk with inventors down the path of turning their idea in a product or app.

Twister Bolts - Before
Twister Bolts - During
Twister Bolts - After

Gary and Ruth were cleaning up and getting their house ready for a party when they noticed the white cap that covers the bolt that holds the toilet to the floor was missing. The exposed, ugly, rusty bolt gave the impression the bathroom was not clean. That’s when they got the idea for a cap that will never come off the bolt.

We applied The Davison® Inventing Method on their idea and then successfully negotiated a license agreement with a corporation that wanted to include it in their product line. They agreed to pay them royalties on each unit sold for the life of the product. Their product has earned a profit and has sold in Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, Menards and more.

Gary and Ruth thanked us with this wonderful statement, “It has been an overwhelming experience. Thanks Davison.”

Twister Caps and Twister Bolts have sold in:

Home Depot
Ace Hardware

Confidentiality Agreement

1 Confidentiality

Protect your idea with an Idea Security Agreement (ISA), or a Confidentiality Agreement before you speak with anyone, including a patent attorney.

2 Pre-Development

We want to know as much as possible about the market where the idea will be going, the companies, products, and patents (patent search) in that market.


3 Brainstorming

Brainstorming is a very critical component of the inventing process. A team of people who are highly skilled in design, manufacturing, raw materials, and communications work together.

4 Ideation Sketch

Once a cost-effective solution is brainstormed, create an ideation sketch. The sketches are great communication tools, and let other people in the process understand the invention.

Concept Model

5 Concept Model

A concept model is a preliminary 3D working model based on the ideation sketch. In app development, the equivalent to a concept model is a wireframe diagram, which reflects the various types of functions and screens to be incorporated in the app. In gaining knowl- edge of a functioning model, changes can be noted for production and engineering.


6 Engineering

Engineering takes precision thinking and the patience to contemplate every single part needed to build the product & how those components fit and work together.

Package Design

7 Package Design

After the packaging is designed, graphics are then created to showcase and maximize appeal to the customer. In the case of an app, graphics are designed for an app store sales display page.

8 Graphic Design

The 3D virtual rendering represents what the actual product sample and packaging will look like. The drawings are transferred to machines that can create the components needed to make a product sample. For digital apps, a similar method applies, except the wireframe is utilized to move forward into the development of the final app.

Product Sample

9 Product Sample

The development process continues when a fully functional product sample is created, and we begin to speak with companies about potential licensing opportunities and filing and paying for our client’s patent work. In the case of apps, the inventor is given access to a test version of the app to begin the process of placing an app into the market for downloads.

The “after” in the above case study is not meant to represent that all ideas go to market, get licensed and sell in stores and online. All ideas have their own journey. Some ideas go on to make history while others at least fail while daring greatly. Davison offers our clients an informative experience that utilizes our technology and leverages our dedicated team of project managers, designers, builders, and licensing agents who walk side by side with our inventors on their journey every step of the way. Davison charges fees for services. The typical inventor’s product is not licensed, profitable or sold in stores.
