Poulsbo man invents sawbar protector

POULSBO — Carl Koepp of Poulsbo has invented a product he calls the BarBox, which is designed to safely store and protect expensive sawbars, thereby saving its users money over time.

It is being promoted in search of a manufacturer through

According to “The BarBox will be easily portable to any location and will be cost-effectively priced, adding to its appeal. It will also greatly help in keeping the sawbars organized and will be able to conveniently store up to six of them comfortably. With its wide array of redeeming qualities, the BarBox should have no trouble finding success through outlets and catalogs selling hardware accessories.”

The BarBox is being made available for licensing to manufacturers, especially those in the hardware accessories industry. Koepp hopes to have the BarBox in full production and available to the public “in the very near future.”
