AWARDS German Innovation Award Winner, German Federal Ecodesign Nominee, Green Product Award Nominee PROBERTY RIGHTS PTC int. patent pending Trademark rights in CH, LI, D, A, I, BX, CZ, SK, RO, USA, CN THE STORY BEHIND My invention was born out of necessity. A clogged shower drain changed my whole life. The products on the market couldn't solve my problem properly, nor could they convince me as a housewife. I believed that had to work better. The search for a simple and functional solution gave me the idea of the spiral-shaped corkscrew wooden rod. I applied for the patent and launched TwistOut in April 2017 on the market. Since then, over 3 million TwistOut drain rods have been produced. They are currently available in 6 countries and in over 4000 shops in Europe.
