  • Well, other than the rubber, the rest of the claims are so broad it could be anything almost already on market. Prior art is sold in stores all over the country and worldwide, has been in a number of well-known magazines in front of millions of readers, etc. While I do not believe patent would ever be granted on the above as it is written, this applicant intentionally filed this application knowing that the prior art existed. We requested non-publication for our reasons. Despite our product clearly stating PATENT PENDING, the applicant parrots our every word for her product.
