How To Use The Tank Tire® Propane Tank Holder


Welcome ladies and gentlemen my name is Brian Benson and today is the first episode of Tank Tire TV. We are here with
the founder of Nash Innovations and the founder of the Tank Tire, Tim Nash.
Thank you Brian. Alright man let’s rock and roll. So tell us about Nash Innovations
and then we’ll go into your product because it’s it’s an awesome product.
Absolutely, so at Nash Innovations we focus on product design, manufacturing,
patenting and really overall finding products that can help add revenue to
companies businesses and find other sources of revenue for companies and
really be a first to market product innovator to find products that do
not exist and obviously solve a problem for the end consumer and develop
them, patent them, and ultimately manufacture
them. Awesome awesome so how did you come up
with the Tank Tire and what was the itch you were trying to scratch for the
consumer really. So I have been an avid griller my whole life and I’ve moved
around, I’ve lived in many different places and one thing I noticed and
became very evident living here in Florida is I have an extra propane tank
cause I never want to run out if I have guests over or even for myself and my family
and I noticed that the propane tank was rusting on my patio and it was very hard
to remove the rust because it was like a stamped concrete and one day I
was actually setting the propane tank down and came back from refilling it and
just setting it down and I don’t know if everyone’s aware but a propane tank full
of propane weighs about 40 pounds and each propane tank has what’s called a
foot ring on the bottom of it and the most standard type of propane think that
we all use is a 20-pound propane tank so I set the 20 pound propane tank down and
it actually chipped the concrete on my patio. So I’m getting rust rings, I’m
ruining my patio and here’s actually an example of a wood deck. Now in Florida we
don’t really have wood decks here but in the Midwest where I grew up we do and
this just shows and illustrates this is actually after three to four months of a
propane tank without a Tank Tire on it, just showing the damage it actually puts.
You can touch it and feel the indentations into the wood and it also
puts rust and dirt finds its way into those indentations so excuse me so I had
to come up with a solution. I wasn’t happy with how it was ruining
my patio so I scoured the market, I googled it, I looked on the US Patent
and Trademark Office website to see if there was a product out there and there
wasn’t so after months of designing, measuring, looking for manufacturers the
one thing I noticed is propane tanks of the 10, 11, 15, and we’ll touch on that in
another episode 20, 30, and 40 pound propane tanks all share the same size
foot ring and I can actually show you what what a foot ring is. So the one
thing that I noticed after much research is and this is your regular 20-pound
propane tank obviously empty brand-new tank. This is what you would call the foot ring
and one thing I noticed after all my research is there was one common element
and that is 10, 11, 15, 20, 30, and 40 pound propane tanks actually all have the same
size foot ring so a light bulb went off that hey we might have something here and so
then I sought to design a product that was not big and bulky didn’t want
anything that wouldn’t fit inside of my grill that I couldn’t have on the
propane tank when I was carrying the propane tank to my car, put it in my car
and I needed something flexible enough because these foot rings most often
actually come damaged whether they’re brand-new or not, certainly from a
propane exchange people drop them, they get wear and tear and they get bent so I
had to have something flexible enough to accommodate for these bends in the foot
ring so I did a lot of research obviously as I mentioned measuring and design work
and came up with the Tank Tire and the Tank Tire is it’s a specialized
rubber polymer ring with a molded channel throughout the whole ring and
it’s designed to specifically fit on to the foot ring of these propane tanks and as
you can see it’s pretty easy to put on. Now you wouldn’t slap a propane tank
like that on your concrete, your tile, your stone patio because it’s going to
chip it, could potentially cause a spark as well, which we will touch on a later
episode as well, but that is really the genesis of of how I came up with Tank
Tire for I brought the product to market. You know I asked grillers, friends, family,
strangers, are you have do you have rust rings on your patio and in every
circumstance the answer was yes and what I also learned and it’s been a learning
process the whole way is actually there’s many more people that use
propane tanks besides grillers. You have tailgaters right now we’re in football
season, you have RVers, look at RVs going down the road, almost every RV has
at least two propane tanks on it, of the 20-pound variety and some 30 and 40
pounders. AC installers, plumbers, boaters, there’s just so many different people
who not only use these different sized propane tanks but really don’t want to damage their
investment by having a propane tank leave rust, damage, scratch. Believe it or not even when you put a
propane tank inside the grill I’ve had customers say they scratched their grill up
enough, the grill is now rusting so it really is a solution for most every type
of scenario and because of the flexibility of Tank Tire we’re able to do
something that no other product on the market can do and that is fit new, used,
or damaged propane tanks but also that propane tanks of different sizes so we
are the only product on the market to be able to do so and we are a proudly made
in the USA product as well and Tank Tire is also a patent pending.
