Inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places. Just ask Frankfort business owner Bryan Nooner.

In late 2011, Nooner’s wife Mari-Beth, frustrated with the way that water caused the power to go out in the couple’s outdoor Christmas light display, asked her husband to see if he could find a way to resolve the issue. Nooner’s solution to the power problem, an extension cord connection protector, would eventually form the basis of Frankfort-based company Twist and Seal — a business that has since sold more than 6 million products worldwide.
