Inexpensive Adapter Allows Versatility to Pool Owners

OAKDALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - A California inventor has given swimming pool owners a simple, yet versatile tool that converts their pool pole into many uses around the home.

The Adapt-O-Pole will be featured in an upcoming promotion with Ace Hardware Stores in Northern California, Idaho and Nevada. One of the participating members of the group, Ward Schemper of Schemper's Ace Hardware in Ripon, expressed his enthusiasm for the Adapt-O-Pole's home versatility, "I think you've got a winner with this!"

It is the versatility of the new product, the Oakdale, Calif. inventor stresses, that also provides the additional element of home safety. The Home Safety Council reports that falls account for 41.2 per cent of non-fatal accidental home injuries. This product turns a swimming pool pole into a handy extension tool of up to 20 feet. Most extension tools are priced from $15 to $40 or more. The Adapt-O-Pole has a suggested retail price of only $7.99, a bargain considering the safety that accompanies the versatility of the product. With its extended reach, ladders would not be needed for many home "fixit" projects that could potentially result in falls and trips to an emergency room.

The Adapt-O-Pole is being targeted to homes with swimming pools. According to the USA Swimming and National Swimming Pool Foundation, there are some 10 million homes with swimming pools just in the USA alone.

The Adapt-O-Pole will also be featured in May at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas as one of the featured products of "The Inventor Lady," Rita Crompton, an annual vendor at the Las Vegas event.
