Dr. Jim Lewis is the forensic pathologist from Chester County, PA who invented Wall Rx, a drywall repair kit. He came up with the idea one Christmas while hanging decorations – he accidentally punched a small hole in the wall. His Wall Rx product allows homeowners to patch small holes (1 to 4 inches in diameter) by themselves and for under $10. After selling more than 90,000 units of Wall Rx, he pitched his business on Shark Tank in 2014.
Dr. Lewis received offers from four Sharks (all but Mark Cuban). He asked Robert Herjavec and Lori Greiner to come together on an offer but Greiner refuses. Lewis accepts the deal with Herjavec. But after the show, Lewis said he “inked a deal” with Greiner too. Wall Rx is available in almost all hardware stores and on Amazon, where one of Greiner’s other successful companies, FiberFix, is listed as the distributor of Wall Rx.
