The snazzy SnapIt eyeglass repair screw, the brainchild of East Wenatchee inventor Nancy Teseschi, will be shelved — and that’s a good thing.

How so? The SnapIt repair kits will be shelved (get this) at Walmart — in thousands of the retailer’s stores across the U.S. — after being named a winner in the company’s recent Get on the Shelf contest.

SnapIt and two other products beat over 4,000 inventions to grab the top three spots in the nationwide contest. It was a kind of “American Idol” for ingenious devices, with the winner being chosen by hundreds of thousands of voters across the country.

The contest’s grand prize winner was HumanKind bottled water, based in Philadelphia. The third product to snag a prize was PlateTopper, a clever plastic lid that turns any dinner plate into a air-tight storage container.

We’ll write more next week about SnapIt’s big win. Until then, you’ll find more info on the contest at getontheshelf.com and more info on SnapIt at snapitscrew.com.
