Suraksha Tong


Shri Arvindbhai Patel took the challenge for designing an innovative tong. He keenly watched the functioning of the common household tongs and discussed the problems with the potential users. From the feedbacks, which he obtained about the conventional tongs, he designed a gadget, which is closest to their requirements. In addition, it is user-friendly and very cheap as compared to the conventional tongs available in the market.
