Have You Developed An Automotive Tool?

It May Be Valuable!
Lisle Corporation currently pays royalties to more than 80 individuals.

For almost 100 years, Lisle has been a leader in developing and marketing new tools for the automotive service industry. Most of these new tools were developed by our own engineering department ... but many successful tools were invented by individual mechanics who recognized a problem and made a tool to solve it.

If you have an original tool idea which others may need, Lisle Corporation is interested in evaluating your idea.

Your idea may be produced and sold by Lisle Corporation under an attractive Award or Royalty Agreement that will bring you income for years to come. Even with a very good tool idea you need someone who can manufacture and sell the tool.

Lisle Corporation has been working with inventors of new tools on an award or royalty basis for many years. The following story shows how mutually beneficial this agreement can be ...

Mr. Dick Rulon of Avon, Connecticut, invented our #70500 Tap Socket Set and is one of the more recent inventions added to the Lisle tool line. This tool is ideal for use in areas where a T-handle won't fit. The set comes with 8 sockets that fit taps made to M.C.T.I. standards.
