"Grease Saver" Keeps Spare Tubes Handy
This new "grease saver" lets you securely store a pair of spare grease tubes so they're always handy and undamaged whenever you need them. They come with a bracket that bolts onto any flat surface, and with a hinged lid that snaps into place.
  "It gives you easy access to clean, undamaged grease tubes and keeps them off the floor so they won't get broken, and it stores them vertically so they can't leak out the cap," says inventor David Mezez of Twin Falls, Idaho. "It's designed so you can open it with one hand and pull out a tube without ever having to set your grease gun down.
  "The holder is designed so you can join several units together, which comes in handy on larger equipment where you use more than two tubes each time you grease."
  Mezes is the manager on a large dairy and farm operation with 140 employees. He came up with the idea after watching spare grease tubes get ruined. He made a prototype in which the tubes were laid flat. "However, I found that if the sun shined on the tubes and they get hot they could leak out the caps. They can't leak if they're in the vertical position," he notes.
  Mezes is looking for a manufacturer.
