  • Duct Tape
    I have participated in creative problem solving competitions for many years. One tool that gets used for everything is Duct Tape. From these competitions my admiration for the gray tape has become insurmountable. I had made many items out of Duct Tape but none got as much attention as my Duct Tape Wallet. People would always ask how it was done... This became my inspiration to create a website free to all on how to use some creativity and engineering to make Duct Tape Wallets. My Wallet design has since been re-created and inspired thousands of times around the world.

    Update: In December 2005 I invented an RFID blocking Duct Tape Wallet through the use embedding aluminum foil in the wallet. After posting the instructions online, the website received the attention of eWeek, Slashdot, Gizmodo, RFID Journal, and hundreds of other websites.


    Outcome
  • I have received thousands of thank-you emails.
  • The site receives thousands of visits each day.
  • My love for the gray adhesive has spread to others.
