How The PeeWee Catcher Happened…
I was at the club one Saturday evening and stepped into the mens’ room. It looked like a pipe had burst. The floor was nasty. While watching people trying to avoid the mess, I thought that there must be a better solution to handle that nasty situation.
That night as I slept, my brain was spinning. How to fix this really bad situation? I woke up in the middle of night and the design was there in my mind. I ran to the kitchen and quickly sketched the core design that we are still using today with only slight improvements to enhance the concept.
The biggest obstacle we faced was finding the right material to conform to the floor and not slide or move on a variety of surfaces. After many months, numerous prototypes, and extensive material testing, we have the perfect solution.
