The Caution Clip
The Caution Clip is a reusable clip with an attached safety ﬂag that can be secured onto a variety of products that over hang or extend past the back of a vehicle or truck bed. The product was invented by life long friends Keith Nielson, Kevin Vann and Tommy Hills. After setting up a portfolio site for the Caution Clip, InventionHome began to identify companies in their network that would be ideal candidates to license the product. After a little bit of time, the Caution Clip started to garner interest and ultimately, a licensing deal was struck with an innovative, global company.
Shortly after the deal, the Caution Clip received its ﬁrst purchase order from Lowes for 43,200 units to be shipped to over 1,200 stores. The product is still going strong at Lowe’s and other fine retailer nationwide. You can read all about the Caution Clip success story from a past post→
