DIY Network is hosting a national competition for enterprising inventors of cool new tools. The winner of the competition will receive $10,000, and their tool invention will get a featured spot on Cool Tools with Chris Grundy.
You can submit your invention by posting a photo or video of the tool in action and describing what it does and how it works. And if you’re not entering the contest, you can still view the gallery of awesome homemade tools on the DIY Network page. The one that intrigues me the most so far is the “Zip Pic” zip tie remover — it allows you to remove zip ties without cutting them.
Take a look around, or perhaps pull out that tool you invented years ago and submit it.
