Idea Program

HAVE YOU DEVELOPED AN AUTOMOTIVE TOOL?

IT MAY BE VALUABLE!
LISLE CORPORATION CURRENTLY PAYS ROYALTIES TO MORE THAN 115 INDIVIDUALS.

For over 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 the ideas of individual mechanics who recognized a problem and came up with 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 many individuals on an award or royalty basis for many years. The following story shows how mutually beneficial this agreement can be ...

Mr. Jason Jantzer of Phoenix, Oregon's tool ideas (our 43300 Pneumatic Fan Clutch Wrench Set, our 18980 Pneumatic U-Joint Driver and our 36880 Dual Overhead Cam Lock Tool) are all submissions that have been added to the Lisle line.
