Inventor Policy

Thank you for contacting OXO and expressing interest in submitting your idea for consideration by one of our product development teams. Every inventor submission received by OXO undergoes an evaluation to determine if it will fit within the current breadth of our product line.


Please review the following Terms of Idea Submission, as they have changed:


By submitting your idea, you agree to and acknowledge that it is OXO’s policy to not sign nondisclosure agreements (NDAs). OXO does not sign NDAs because of the potential conflict with OXO’s own internal product development process and with its long standing relationships with design firms. If you are wary about going forward without an NDA, we recommend you seek protection under the patent laws; for more information on this, please visit the United States Patent Office (USPTO) website at If you agree to these Terms of Idea Submission, select the box below to move forward with your submission. Please feel free to submit your invention in any of the following formats:

  • Hand drawings
  • Photographs
  • Video demonstrating product in use
  • Website about your product

Along with a visual representation, please include a written description of your invention, as well as any relevant information about the steps you may have already taken to patent your invention with the USPTO or any foreign patent offices. Please include necessary information about who you may have already disclosed your idea to prior to our communication.

OXO’s evaluation process takes approximately 6-8 weeks to complete. At the end of this time, a representative from OXO will contact you with a response. Everyone who contacts OXO with an idea will receive a response to their product submission.


Please note that these Terms of Idea Submission govern this submission process. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].



I acknowledge and agree to these terms
