InventHelp's INPEX, America's Largest Invention Trade Show, announces that Edward Knittel, from Trenton, Tenn., has invented an electronic way to close a storm door automatically. This provisionally-patented invention will be exhibited at INPEX 2013, June 19-21, in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. |
The "Automated Storm Door Closer" would automatically hold open a storm door on a home or building and close it automatically when the doorway is cleared. It would be convenient when carrying packages or small children into or out of the house and for people with limited mobility.
The invention would be a direct, do-it-yourself replacement of the existing closer. When the door is opened, it would hold itself open until the doorway is cleared; then an electronic circuit would close the door. This would also eliminate the storm door slamming shut, trapping fingers or items in the door.
The inventor designed the invention because he wanted to improve on the existing storm doors on the market. "I've worked in home improvement for many years, and I am aware of the sore points of storm doors," said Knittel. "This is the age of electronic gadgetry, so why not automate the closer?"
Knittel is exhibiting at INPEX with the hopes of finding a manufacturer or licensee.
