One of the great things about working at SeaSucker is seeing inspiration hit people when they comprehend how incredibly versatile our vacuum cups are. Stand near our booth at a boat show for a while and you’re sure to hear someone say “I’ve got the perfect application for your SeaSuckers …” I personally love it when they then try to sell me the idea or ask me to sign a non-disclosure agreement. After I talk them into giving me a hint about what it is, I almost always tell them that we’ve already thought of it. Sometimes I’ll just turn around and grab the exact product they’ve just described off of my display.But that’s not to say that we don’t want to hear your ideas! On the contrary, I personally enjoy the back-and-forth with people who expect a piece of the profits from their great idea, and most importantly, we get some of our best product ideas from our customers. For example, David Neblett wanted a console-top cup holder with a dry box built in, which then became one of our top-selling cups holders. Jeff Braaten wanted a holder for a couple handles of rum, which became our Party Barge. We just finished a tabletop tray for a customer in California; maybe that will become a popular item as well. So, keep on telling us about the cool and unusual things you are doing or want to do with a SeaSucker. Tell us when you see us at boat shows, bike events, or wherever. Feel free to email photos of your best stuff (to email@example.com) and if I use your photo in the blog, I’ll send you a SeaSucker t-shirt.
