make it happen!The most accessible, aerodynamic,
attractive, convenient, functional, theft proof and
weather proof tonneau cover EVER designed for a pickup
thing you need to do is have an idea that is actually
going to get you somewhere. If you come up with
something, that no one can use, than it's no good to
anyone. Come up with something useful and something that
everyone can use or will need. That's just common
sense. To get started you need to have photos, drawings
or a prototype of what you want to invent. After you
contacted a patent lawyer, you will have a meeting and
discuss your invention. If you still want to file for a
patent, you pay a non-refundable fee to do a patent
search. The search takes about 3-10 days. After the
search is complete, you will find out if you can proceed
with your idea or go back to the drawing board. Not all
searches come back positive. If there is an idea close
to what you have or if your idea is hazardous it can be
If you passed the search process and still want to file
for a patent, you will work out the details and start
from there. After everything is finalized your patent
application gets sent off to Arlington, Virginia just
outside of Washington D.C. After your application is
sent off to Virginia, you are now "Patent Pending".
Patent Pending means that you have filed for a patent
and have your idea under review.
Being "Patent Pending" means just that, it's "Pending".
You may or may not be granted with a Patent! If by some
chance you get rejected. You lose all money invested.
Yes even after doing the search from the get go, you can
still be rejected during the patent process! Just
because you pass the search does not mean you will be
granted with a patent!If you get to the point to where
everything is going good and you are approved for the
patent. You have ONLY 90 days to pay an issue fee
to have the patent finalized. If you don't pay within
that time, you lose your patent FOREVER! Just
getting a patent, is an accomplishment in itself.
Everyone has an idea for something that will make them
rich. But most often enough, nothing happens and they
let someone else invent it for them, and they are left
saying. "Hey that was my idea!" That's right it "WAS"
your idea.If you are serious about filing for a patent,
you better be prepared and have your pocket book ready.
It's a long and expensive process, but if you do sell
it, the reward will be well worth the headache. And yes
you will get headaches! There are many more things left
to invent. Not all inventions are good ones. It's up to
you to decide what the next big thing is. I mean does
anyone really need a singing fish on a plaque? But I bet
he is sitting pretty from his patent!!
There are so many different ways to go about getting a
company interested in your idea. Some cheap, some
expensive. You could hire a marketing company, have
brochures made, a website, business cards, photos,
prototypes, videos, infomercial’s, or even go to trade
shows. Find a way that you are comfortable with and
stick to it. My suggestion is to have a prototype of
your invention to show companies. Drawings are okay and
they get your point across, but would you buy something
sight unseen? If you don't try your best to sell your
patent, then why get a patent in the first place? Unless
you are going to manufacturer it yourself. These are
just some of the ways to go about getting a patent and
getting your idea on the market. It will be costly, you
decide when to much is to much. My advise is, no matter
how long it takes, DON'T GIVE UP!!
Tonneau Gate is the first and ONLY tonneau cover
with its shape, features and design. It has been
designed to fit any truck application with a bed,
regardless of dimensions, shape, make, model, or even
the year of the truck. The current prototype will
give you a good example of what a production piece could
look like. Since the tailgate is being lifted instead of
being lowered, you gain up to two feet of loading and
unloading room using Tonneau Gate. Gas mileage is also
increased due to better air flow with the more
first glance you don't notice that any modification has
taken place. Since the license plate and reverse lights
are located on the cover together, they really blend in
with the rest of the truck giving it a factory
The handles and keyed locks that are commonly
located on top of the cover have been eliminated, giving
it a smooth custom look, similar to that of a car trunk.
So, how do you open the "trunk"? Simple. To open or
unlock Tonneau Gate, you raise the license plate to
reveal the hidden handle and locks. Another possible
feature is a keyless barcode entry system, similar to
what can be found on Ford vehicles.
The handle triggers latches on the "tailgate" and
releases the striker bolts. The gas struts do their job
which help raise, hold, and lower the tonneau cover.
After that has taken place, you now have more access to
the inside of your bed than ever before!Tonneau Gate has
also been designed to be the most theft proof cover
ever! There is no way to gain access to the inside
without unlocking it! There is no where to break in! It
is impossible to open the cover if it is locked!
Tonneau Gate extends from one bed rail to the other,
giving your bed full and complete coverage. A flexible
weather stripping seal follows each bed rail to prevent
moisture from entering the enclosure. Since the tailgate
is being raised instead of being lowered, the gap
between the bumper or rollpan is almost eliminated,
creating a better weather-tight seal on the bottom of
best thing about Tonneau Gate is the fact that it
requires NO MODIFICATION to your truck in order
to use it. Just remove your tailgate, bolt it on and
you're finished. Tonneau Gate is 100% street legal,
perfect for everyday use or just for show. It is also a
perfect way to cover up personal belongings or to cover
your air bag setup from the weather! And if you feel you
need more security, you can add an alarm system!
Tonneau Gate is being displayed on a stock pickup to
show what a production model could look like. By using a
stock pickup, it displays the tonneau cover better
without getting lost in aftermarket accessories. This
will give you, the consumer, a better idea of what it
would look like on your truck... be it stock or
customized. Tonneau Gate is the best way to complete
your custom Cadillac or Lincoln theme.The most
accessible, aerodynamic, attractive, convenient,
functional, theft proof, weather proof tonneau cover
EVER designed for a pickup truck!
