Innovation Direct™ Set to Represent Patented Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension Invention to Industry

Miami, FL, December 03, 2011 --( An innovative new patented product targeted at the millions who use socket wrenches for a variety of tasks, the Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension, has been developed by Frank Vance of Akron, Ohio. The invention's unique design renders it an effective and efficient tool that can be customized to work comfortably within virtually any space.

Conventional socket wrenches are one of the most often used hand tools for a wide variety of jobs, but have certain key limitations. One of the most common is the difficulty their design presents when one attempts to utilize them in an area with limited space, which provides a very restricted degree of leverage and can lead to potential user injury.

As described in the product’s patent, the Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension will be implemented with a standard ratchet wrench that features a square male drive on one end attaching to a normal socket and square female drive on the other end that attaches to a conventional socket wrench. However, the product will feature the important addition of a wrench slider component to provide increased length to reach. This will allow its users to gain optimal leverage when working in confined spaces by enabling them to customize the reach of the wrench to the exact amount needed for a particular task.

The Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension will save its users time and money when completing tasks. Its proprietary features will also enable them perform a higher quality job and will help to greatly reduce the chances of causing damage to equipment. Additionally, it will also contribute to a safer working environment by eliminating many of the potential hazards inherent in attempting to use a conventional socket wrench in very restrictive spaces.

The Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension is the subject of Utility Patent # 7,185,568 with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Mr. Vance now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the hardware and tool accessories industries are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension on a worldwide basis.

In October 2011, Mr. Vance contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Adjustable Socket Wrench Extension to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through its unique and patented licensing methodology and its participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year.
