My wife’s and my little business

Post by MatthewL »

Hi everyone - I’m always looking for ways to tell people about my wife’s and my little business and our invention which received its patent confirmation yesterday ….but I’m not sure if rules prohibit it on the forum.

If it helps…. Like my lovely 420 Tourer… it’s made in the U.K., sold about 4000 to date, is great value for money, great fun, brings an enormous sense of satisfaction from the envy it causes…..

If it’s ok … I’ll even offer a club discount code! Let me know… (hope you’re intrigued!)

You won't be breaking any rules posting about it in the 'Lounge' forum (as long as it's legal, decent, honest, etc :laughing2 )

Thanks mate! Well… you know Elon Musk is trying to solve the lack of travel options to get to Mars…. And some scientists are managing to fuse atoms to solve our global energy needs? Well, this is far more important…

We think we’ve solved Britain’s most prolific unreported crime, probably :D

We’ve invented a locking milk carton cap called UdderLok for when you take your milk into your work shared fridge and everyone tries to take it. We sell loads to the Police weirdly - mustn’t all be as honest as we think!!!

If you guys fancy one use code LEAF10 for 10% off at our website www.UdderLok.com

And all made in the U.K.

What do you think?

Thanks everyone! It was a bit of a gamble but having had milk nicked off me fit 25 years in offices I’d had enough. Getting prototypes made, injection moulds, packaging, patent lawyers and what have you will take a few years to recoup but we’re really enjoying selling it - it’s something that seems to affect a lot of people. I now have to work out how I can get it sold in some shops - anyone know the Chief Executive of Tesco? :D
