    Without getting a patent you're relying on the trust worthiness of a company...tread lightly.... It's tough to say you'd get anything from anybody. Once you told a company I have a great Idea to do this and that to make this thing better, they'll probably figure out how to do it on their own and say "Yeah, we've been working on something very similar".

    Good Luck though, you don't know until you try!

    Draw up your idea, file for a patent, then find a machinest to make you a prototype.

    That's the route I would go anyhow.
    Be good or be good at it.

    Sounds like you should talk to an attorney. If you don't have the time, or want to take it to the next step, they may be able to give you some insight on how to protect yourself while you shop it around.

    Hope it works out for you!

    I hope they wouldn't steal it. Especially since they are a relatively local company for upnorth and myself. Chris and the gang have always been top notch for myself and a few others I know.

    you could always use the ol' take a picture and mail it to yourself and then leave it sealed. the postmark acts as your proof of when you came up with the idea. not really worth much legally from what I understand but maybe in the court of public opinion it might mean something.

    There is no way that you couldn't just sell the idea with out a patent. I know with a patent it would be easier to prove theaft of idea. But even with a patent all they would have to do is change it a little bit. Why couldn't you just try and manufacture them your self since you already seem to have some built. Or is it to time consuming? Either way I hope all goes well with you.
