Woodridge inventor hopes his 'Sk8Hook' takes off
WOODRIDGE – Linas Olsauskas had a dream as a teenager. As 48-year-old, he's finally chasing it down.
The Woodridge man's idea to help skateboarders master tricks and beginners balance with ease was born as a 13-year-old. Sk8Hook is a rubber-dipped attachment that mounts on the deck of a skateboard and gives skateboarders a lift by putting pressure on the outsides of each foot.
"I came up with the idea 35 years ago and never did anything with it," said Olsauskas, a self-employed real estate appraiser. "I sat on the idea for all those years because I never knew where to take it."
