BEACH POCKETS® HONORED FOR CREATIVE SPIRIT & PRODUCT EXCELLENCE BY NATIONAL INVENTORS HALL OF FAME & US PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE
NEW BEACH & PATIO PRODUCT STARTS SUMMER AS A WINNING PRODUCT
PAOLI, PA (June, 2004) – Seabreeze Products, Inc., a company specializing in the manufacture and sale of beach and patio accessories, announced that the company’s signature product, Beach Pockets®, was recently chosen from thousands of inventions by Invent Now® America to participate in a special event honoring the best patented inventions of the past year. This outstanding new product, conceived and designed at the kitchen table of a working mother frustrated by beach umbrellas that would not stay anchored in the sand, is now available at select supermarkets and sundry stores located in Mid-Atlantic states, as well as through the company website (www.beachpockets.com).
Beach Pockets®, an easy-to-use and environmentally-friendly beach accessory that prevents beach umbrellas from blowing away in the wind, was honored for both the compelling story behind the product’s genesis and the representative inventive spirit used to create it. Invent Now® America was founded by the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the United States Patent and Trademark Office to encourage and celebrate the creative spirit of invention. Designed with durable, lightweight polyester fabric and a large plastic turning knob perfect for all strengths and finger sizes, this product is the must-have beach and patio accessory this year for singles, families and seniors.
“We are very excited that our product was honored by Invent Now America and will be sold in Acme stores in four states, reminding us that the hard work and dedication to get the product right and bring it to market has been well worth our dedicated efforts,” said Barbara Bigford, company founder and chief inventor. “We are confident consumers will love this new beach and patio product.”
This convenient and compact product features three pockets that attach to a lightweight barrel easily secured on any standard size beach umbrella pole. The pockets, when filled with sand, weight down a beach umbrella, preventing it from blowing away in the wind. The product can also be used at the top of beach and patio umbrella poles to store or protect sunglasses, baby bottles, suntan lotions, cell phones, condiments, napkins, bug spray and eating utensils, among others.
Beach Pockets® effectively stops beach umbrellas from blowing away in winds up to 20 miles per hour. Available with pockets in three styles – yellow, blue & white stripes, and Palm Tree Paradise – it is sold separately with bonus sand scoop or with matching umbrella in a convenient carrying case. Available at the company’s website, Beach Pockets® is priced affordably under $20.00 (shipping included) and Beach Pockets® Plus (with matching umbrella set) sells for $25.00.
Headquartered in Paoli, Pennsylvania, Seabreeze Products, Inc. specializes in the manufacture andsale of a growing selection of beach and patio accessories. To learn more about Beach Pockets®, visit www.beachpockets.com.
