He therefore developed the idea for a Window Fitter Assistant to aid the easy transport and orientation of windows during installation.

The “kill switch” that forms part of the design for a wake boarding winch from Matt Nugent has attracted a lot of interest from several companies as it offers the potential to be used in many extreme sports and activities.  The winch itself, RipLine 270, has the advantage of wireless controls, an extended cable length, and speeds up to 24mph.
