Hot Invention

An idea that was started in a napkin when I was taking a break in a hot parking lot and has taken two years to develop is now on the market. ESPM and Alfredo Dominguez are proud to introduce its new product, a truck lid that will revolutionize the ways in which trucks are used. Finally there is a product that actually lives up to the claim ?For Work or Play.? La Shade is a brand new patent pending truck lid cover.

La Shade is the first hard truck lid cover that is dual-hinged, first on the front edge of the truck bed and then approximately 25? back, behind the front hinge and cab. This allows the truck lid to open in a vertical motion, leaving the opened truck lid cover in a horizontal position, approximately 25? above the top of the truck bed. After releasing the two latches on the cover, a slight lifting motion to start the cover on its upward journey is all that is necessary. La Shade continues to open until it reaches its wide-open configuration. When open you can access the entire front area of the bed under the cover, directly behind the cab. Other hard truck lids lift at an angle and don?t allow for easy access to this area.

La Shade enables the owner to use the bed of the truck in ways that were never imagined. The lid is designed in a way that when opened, the lid offers protection from the elements and increases the amount of usable space.

La Shade truck lid makes the truck bed completely customizable. La Shade allows owners to add luxuries such as sofas, carpets, radios, televisions, coolers, and gaming systems to the truck bed. What was previously unused space now becomes a home away from home. La Shade will encourage people to buy a truck just to convert their truck into the ultimate tailgate party machine.

La Shade truck lids maintains a safe and secure space for tools, supplies and personal items while also making them easy to access, when closed the lid is sealed around the outside with double seal, and the hinged joint is sealed with a special seal to insure protection to items in bed. La Shade provides owners of trucks with increased fuel economy by lessening the wind drag. One other feature of La Shade is that the vehicle can be driven with the lid in the upright and open position. This allows for the owner to carry large bulky items in the bed, without removing the lid. It would work great for snowmobile or jet-ski and even for some motorcycles,

La Shade is destined to be the new ?Must Have? accessory for truck owners!
