Turning the World Upside-Down, Bottles Anyway.

Crown Point, IN: June 9, 2003 - An out of work mechanical engineer has developed a holder to store bottles upside-down. The idea came to him during a rushed shower. After struggling with the shampoo for the first lather up, he tried to balance the bottle on the cap only to have it fall and land on his foot. He searched for a suitable holder before inventing his own.

David Catt's product called, Stand Ready™ brand Inverted Bottle Holder, supports a wide variety of bottle shapes from ketchup to 2 liter soda pop. Catt pointed out that bottles are ready to use without waiting. The holder's patent pending compact design will sit on a shelve in the shower. The holder will reduce product waste by making it easier to use all the contents of a bottle especially a solid color bottle. People with limited mobility in their hands (such as from arthritis) will appreciate the reduce motion required to use bottled products. The holder helps save time, energy and water during a hot shower. When asked about using the holder for 2 liter pop bottle, Catt said "They hold their fizz longer after opening by making a liquid seal on the cap".

Catt started CTS Innovations, Inc. after the terrible events of 9/11/01 and takes pride in having the holder made in the Scottsburg,IN,USA from recyclable plastic. Currently, the holder is only available through the company website at www.standready.biz for $2.49 each. Catt hopes to have his holder in retail stores soon.
