    Dear Sirs,

    I have a new product that I have a patent on and I am presently selling. I would like to present it to the Sharks for their input and hopfully they would be interested in further Marketing and sales. My product is a Solar Flag Light to illuminate the American Flag at night. My product is called" The Liberty Light" It is solar powered with a solar panel that charges 3x1500mAh Ni-MH batteries during the day and a sensor that turns the 60 lux Output light on at dusk and lights the Flag. It can last up to 12 full hours. This is a very efficent way to light the flag. Please let me know if this product could be seen by the Sharks so I can get help with mass distribuation.

    Sincerly

    Ray Zemar

    Thanks so much for the info. NONCONFIDENTIAL, huh. That I might not be comfortable with. They are sharks, aren't they??

    Hi, all:

    You can send them an Executive Summary of your company and the product that you're pitching. That gives all the information that they want, and it doesn't give enough information about the inner workings of the product to do anything other than give an overview.

    My wife and I submitted 3 weeks ago, and we haven't heard a word. GOT to wonder just how very many requests these people get. Hundreds of thousands, no doubt . . .

    We have a new product, which we designed and are having manufactured. It is patented by us. It is a Chaise Lounge Repair Kit, an alternate "fix" for the sagging vinyl strap problem. It will extend the life of a chaise lounge or patio chair up to 10 years. And it will keep the discarded chaise lounges and patio chairs out of our landfills, a growing problem. We have the material supply and production all set. We need some help in the Marketing area. This is a very large, undeveloped market, waiting to be tapped.

    What do you need from us to decide if our product would be a good fit for your "Sharks"?

    HELLO TO WHOEVER IS JUDGING THIS AS AN APPLICATION:

    I THOUGHT OF A WONDERFUL PET PRODUCT FOR CATS 25 YEARS AGO. I TURNED 69 RECENTLY AND DECIDED TO REALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT SO I HAVE A PROTOTYPE MADE AND INSTALLED AND IT IS WORKING LIKE A CHARM AND IS THE ANSWER TO ALL CAT OWNERS WHO HATE A LITTER BOX. A LITTER BOX IS THE ONLY HOLD UP ON A CAT BEING A PERFECT PET. THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN VOTED THE MOST POPULAR PET FOR PET LOVERS BECAUSE THEY ARE EASY TO TAKE CARE OF AND ARE MYSTERIOUS AND FUNNY FRIEND. I MADE A DEAL WITH A LOCAL ANIMAL SHOP TO RENT A KITTEN FOR A DAY AT A TIME BECAUSE PETS WEREN'T ALLOWED IN THE PLACE WHERE I LIVED. THE FIRST TIME I TOOK THIS KITTEN TO MY APARTMENT I FULLY INTENDED TO RETURN HIM THAT AFTERNOON. I FELL IN LOVE AND TOLD MY FAMILY THAT IF I REFERRED TO HIM AT ANY TIME I WOULD REFER TO HIM AS MY COMPANY. I GOT CAUGHT BY THE FILTER CHANGER MAN AND WAS TOLD TO GET RID OF HIM OR MOVE. I MOVED AND GOT A PRESCRIPTION FOR A CAT FOR MY NERVES SO I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY A HUGE DEPOSIT. HIS NAME IS "COMPANY" AND HE IS FOUR YEARS OLD AND USES MY INVENTION AS ARE TWO OF MY SISTERS CATS. THERE IS NO SCENT OF CAT AT ALL. IT IS EASY TO INSTALL AND THE ACCLIMATION TIME FOR THE CAT FROM HIS USUAL SMELLY LITTER BOX WAS VERY SHORT....I 1/2 DAYS. IT IS CALLED "THE INSIDE OUTHOUSE" AND WILL BE A REVOLUTION FOR CAT LOVERS NO MATTER WHERE THEY LIVE. ALL WHO SEE IT ARE AMAZED AT THE SIMPLICITY OF THE PRODUCT. I WOULD LIKE TO BE ON SHARK TANK TO GET THE INSIDE OUTHOUSE OUT TO PET STORES OR A PET "COMPANY". IT WILL BE A REVOLUTION. I HAVEN'T HAD THE MONEY TO MOVE FURTHER THAN HAVING A PROTOTYPE MADE BY MY GENIOUS BROTHER-IN-LAW BECAUSE I'M ON SOCIAL SECURITY. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS LIKE A JOKE BUT BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY IT ISN'T AND I WOULD LIKE TO PROVE MY PRODUCT'S POSSIBLIES. I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD A PATENT AND I KNOW THIS IS SCARY BUT I'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING NOW OR FORGET IT. PLEASE BE REAL AND NOT ANOTHER OF THE FAKES THAT HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF SOME OF MY IDEAS IN MY PAST. THIS LATE IN MY LIFE I WANT TO DO SOMETHING AND NOW. CATS OWNERS EVERYWHERE WILL LOVE ME AND APPRECIATE THEIR CAT MORE THAN EVER FOR NOT HAVING SUCH A TERRIBLE ODOR. THIS INVENTION COMPLETELY ELIMINATES THE PROBLEM.

    It's kind of odd how people are replying to this thread as if it has some sort of real access to the show. This is just a forum for discussing the show, so it's great that you have an idea, but if you actually want to get on the show posting here is not the right place to do that.

    It might be odd but it is still a smart move, because it is getting the product 'in the air' with hope that it will get 'on the air' A good friend of mine also has a product that he intends on pitching to the sharks, it's Armis, it can be viewed at www.ArmisGame.com
