      The first thing would be to hire a good attorney who will protect your rights. I also wouldn't limit your choice of mfgs. to pitch the idea too to only Ridge Tool either. If your idea is truly a marketable one, many companies will be interested in it.

          That's the stuff the IAL (first link above) can help you with.
          Who to contact within a company, how to present, non-disclosure agreements, etc.

              Check out this page on the BenchDog Tools site. Though your idea sounds like it has to do with the plumbing trade, the information and links they have provided on their site are general in nature and will be of assistance to you.
