(WO) — "I thought there could be a way to greatly improve service and repairs when working with a vice, especially on uneven ground or in remote locations," said an inventor, from Roxie, Miss., "so I invented THE THIRD HAND. My efficient design can be used for bending, threading, repairing, welding, pounding, cutting, and other purposes."

The invention features an adjustable design that is easy to use and transport so it is ideal for oil rig workers and other professionals. Additionally, it could accommodate different sizes and types of vices and a prototype model is available upon request.

The invention provides an improved way to secure a vice in a level state on uneven ground. In doing so, it can be used for drilling and other applications. As a result, it increases stability and safety.

The original design was submitted to the Jackson sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
