Bathroom Product Inventor Walks Into a Big Box Retailer and Sells His First Batch

TRIPLUNGER for BOB GINTHER – After Mako designed, prototyped, and manufactured Bob’s first invention, he had a unique selling method… He walked right into a Co-Op Home Center with a box of TriPlungers, hunted down the store manager, and showed the manager that his TriPlunger was better than any plunger out there.  Voila, first box sold!

Product Description: Redesigning the bathroom toilet plunger to fit the shapes of this toilets made in the year 2000 and up!

Mako’s Involvement: Bob Ginther came to Mako Design with the simple idea: Why don’t we make a triangle shaped toilet plunger, since most new toilets are closer to that shape?!  Done.  Mako did research, sketching, industrial design, product development, prototyping, and manufacturing.
