Nick and Carl Rinne had always been encouraged to be entrepreneurs.
From a young age, their father taught them problem-solving skills as well as
the basics in designing and manufacturing. The two brothers often spent time
in their family garage working on various projects together until they were
inspired by YouTuber "Shawn Woods" featuring a log balanced atop a bucket
that could catch multiple mice at once. This sparked an idea for Nick and Carl
so they set out creating prototypes in hopes of creating something similar; after
many failed attempts, they eventually created their own version of the rolling log mouse trap which soon received 3-4 orders per week giving them enough motivation to fully commit themselves into inventing other types of mousetraps. One of those traps would be “The Flip N Slide ”, this new style trap was touted as the worlds greatest mouse trap by popular
pest control reviewer Shawn woods.
The Rinne brothers' success continued to grow from that point onward. They began receiving orders for the Flip n Slide from all over the world and their business gained more attention with every passing day. Soon, they had a full-time staff helping them manage their growing company, which consisted mostly of family members. Nick and Carl even found themselves featured in New York times,
WireCutter and even a few national television shows where they were able to tell the
inspiring story of how they went from working out of a family garage to becoming
