12 Crazy Redneck Inventions That Could Only Happen In The USA
January 24, 2021 / Comments
They say necessity is the mother of invention. For redneck inventions, we’d say it’s always a necessity to have a little fun. These inventions walk the line between crazy-good and just plain crazy.
The basic rules:
- Keep it practical
- Use what you got
- Have fun with it
So grab your duct tape, PVC pipes, and courage. We’re about to go through crazy redneck inventions 101.
Redneck Fly Swatter
This flyswatter is a pretty sophisticated piece of redneck technology.
It’s got genius: tennis racket has more surface area then a traditional fly swatter.
It’s got crazy: a little electric zap just to make sure that fly’s not getting away…
What we love about this super practical invention is that it doesn’t hide what it is and it’s bright enough to always be found when you need it.
Redneck Sun Shield
There’s just nothing better than being outside! This sun shield, invented by Twitter user @LuckyBrenna, uses duct tape and binder clips to keep the sun off the laptop screen. A simple way to multitask— get some work done and a tan.
Okay so it would be redneck if they were made of turtle… but it’s even more redneck that they’re not! These “burgers” are actually a combo of bacon, hot dogs and ground beef with a little cheese to hold it all together. A super goofy trick to try for your next bbq.
Hey… bet those would taste darn good slathered with a little barbecue sauce.
Redneck Hedge Trimmer
Some redneck inventions seem to defy the laws of physics. Like this “hedge trimmer” — a forklift with a lawnmower attached. This is some strong “get ‘er done” energy, and sometimes that’s all you need.

A good BBQ sauce might just be the duct tape of good— you should always have some around and it can fix almost any problem. The creator of our Arkansas-style BBQ sauce is as goofy as you can imagine. This sauce is meant to get messy. Slather it on anything from brisket to nachos and wear your lipstick with pride!
Maybe you prefer your lipstick with a bit of a kick? Try the spicy version of our sauce to get a little extra pucker.
Ever wanted the thrill of flying down the road on a motorcycle without the danger of crashing? These folks sure did— and we’d say they nailed it! Except for the going backwards bit…
This is a genius use for a motorcycle that probably shouldn’t see the road anytime soon.
Touchless PVC Sanitizer Dispenser
Redneck inventors are also keeping up with current needs. This is an extremely practical (and weirdly futuristic looking) touch-free hand sanitizer dispenser made of PVC pipes, which work just like real life redneck legos. Just press the bottom pipe with your foot to get a little squirt of sanitizer. It’ll last a long time and can be reused later.
Redneck Hot Tub
There’s no shortage of redneck pools and tubs on the internet. Working hard = playing hard. And sometimes you just don’t have time to get a whole pool setup so you throw a tarp in the back of a pickup truck and chill.
See an entire blog post of redneck hot tub ideas here.
Redneck Belt Sander
Another important part of redneck engineering is turning trash to treasure. That’s exactly what’s going on with this belt sander— which is actually just an old treadmill with some sandpaper attached to it. You’ll probably want to keep this far away from any home gym areas.
Redneck S'mores Platter
More fun. Where there’s a redneck will, there’s a way to make something more fun. Take for example this s’mores rake. It’s cool to use individual twigs to burn your marshmallows (and maybe the whole thing will go up in flame), but with this invention you can make more marshmallows (and warm up the chocolate). Plus using a rake automatically makes it fun.
If you’re crazy enough to try the s’mores platter you also might be crazy enough to try it with some of our spicy bbq sauce for a little sweet and savory time-- you are technically barbecuing it, after all.
Redneck Boot WarmerIf your long day on the job ended with some rain this boot warmer is just the thing. Here we’ve got a classic combo of PVC pipe and duct tape combined with a hair dryer to freshen up your boots in no time.

Redneck Hurricane Alert
You know we love a good gag gift! Some of the funniest redneck inventions seem like a joke but actually do the thing they’re designed to do. This hurricane alert will definitely tell you something’s up. And, honestly, if there is a hurricane, you could probably replace those bottles pretty quickly.
