The Tube-Wringer Story

The Tube-Wringer was invented in the 1970s by Oregon inventor John Gill. As more products came in tubes, he saw that many tubes were thrown out still partially filled with paint, toothpaste, dental compounds, sauces, diaper creams, and more. Mr. Gill decided to tackle this waste by inventing an effective tube squeezer.

In order to accomplish this goal, Gill paid local children to give him partially used or “empty” tubes so that he could experiment with various designs and determine which tube-wringer would squeeze out the most of any product.

Mr. Gill developed the crimping mechanism use in every model of Tube-Wringer. This mechanism not only squeezes the tube, it crimps metal tubes and effectively closes off the empty portion of the tube. This means that product is unlikely to move about within the tube, and will be pushed to the top so that you can get every last drop.

John Gill toured the world to showcase his product. In fact, the Tube-Wringer headquarters in Oregon still receives letters and emails from people who bought their tool from John. In many cases, the tool has lasted thirty years or more.

The Gill Mechanical Tube-Wringer is made to the same exacting specifications and with the same durability standards originally set by Mr. Gill. The product is long-lasting, durable, and can be used again and again for years
