Tripp also has a utility patent for the product., which he obtained at just 10 years old. Further, his patent attorney said he is one of the youngest patent holders in all of American history.

In terms of lifetime sales, he already has more than $120,000. Plus, he already has more than $30,000 sold in the five months leading up to filming.

In addition to the reasonable sales numbers, they are also pleased to hear that the product has great margins. While it takes less than $0.50 to make, they are currently selling it online on their own website, for $9.99 per unit of LeGlue.

When asked how Tripp came up with the idea for the product, he said that in third grade, he had a school assignment to invent something. So, he asked his dad how to invent, and his dad told him to identify a problem, then solve it.

While in his bedroom, playing with one of his Lego builds, he dropped it and it broke apart. That’s when he came up with the idea to invent a special glue for he bricks.

Kevin O’Leary starts out by making an offer to LeGlue, suggesting that he will put up the $80,000, and help the company get off the ground. With licensing as the primary objective, he’ll take 50% of licensing until his investment is recouped, and then it will drop to 20% equity in perpetuity.

Guest shark Jamie Siminoff, and creator of the Ring doorbell, loves Tripp’s invention. He actually said he can see it being a lifesaver in his own home.

However, he ultimately feels that Mr. Wonderful’s deal is a good one for Tripp. So, for this reason, he is out.

Daymond is the second shark to show interest, and offers $80,000 for 25% equtiy.

Lori Greiner and Mark Cuban both feel like they can’t make a competitive offer to LeGlue, so they ultimately go out after Kevin and Daymond make their offers.

Eventually, Tripp decides to accept Kevin’s offer, and he leaves Shark Tank with a deal!
