Auburn inventor to exhibit Holiday Light Saver at show

For the Reporter

Auburn's Gary Hills exhibits his patented invention – a storage kit for holiday and decorative lights that protects the lights for future use – at the InventHelp's INPEX, America's Largest Invention Trade Show on June 18-20 in Pittsburgh.

Hills' Holiday Light Saver encases lights in a reusable plastic storage sleeve that prevents lights from tangling with other strands.

"I've spent years of frustration with tangled Christmas lights – especially icicle lights," Hills said. "Different concepts resulted in the Holiday Light Saver. I wanted something that was fast, easy and reusable."

The kit includes two pre-loaded reusable cartridges, 120 feet of plastic and a re-loading cone. The kit allows a user to store or hang lights in seconds. Bagging tips and instructions are included in each kit.

The Holiday Light Saver is ideal for icicle lights, net lights, LED Lights, any light C-9 or smaller, garland, garden hoses, wires and more.
