Table Jack is a device that stabilizes a wobbly bar table. The patented gadget goes right into the leg of a table and works like a jack operated by foot. It’s an alternative to having to bend down and put an ugly folded napkin or book of matches under the leg of a table. The inventor of Table Jack, successful restaurant owner Steve Christian of Christian’s Tailgail Bar & Grill in Houston, Texas, pitched Table Jack on Shark Tank in October 2014. He went into the Tank seeking an investment of $100,000 in exchange for 25 percent equity. While all the Sharks were impressed with Christian, no one offered the entrepreneur a deal.
Three years later and Christian is still selling Table Jack online (see link/image above). He’s also invented a number of new products for the food service industry including the Bucket Chiller. It’s a bucket with six individual holes to make sure each individual bottle of beer is kept cool, and stays cooler for longer. Christian is also working on the Pitcher Chiller.
