Inventors of the Heel Seal

What makes the Heel Seal unique is that it's silicone ring is designed to create a Perfect Seal around your drain, eliminating movement, while allowing water to still flow through. The product works best on a smooth surface, like a stainless steel sink in the kitchen, but can also be used in smooth showers.

Why is it called the "Heel Seal"? Well, during the competition it was called the "Drain Hair-o" but it was thought to limit customer's thoughts on ways to use the product. It's great for the kitchen as well to eliminate debris going down the drain. And since you use the heel of your hand or the heel of your foot to seal it, they thought the Heel Seal was the perfect name for it.
