About Banana Products and History of the Banana Peel Slip

Banana Products Founders

The Banana Cone™ was originally inspired by the popular Nintendo 64 game Mario Kart, which led Patrick and Kevin Brogan to start Banana Products. We started with 1 product and now supply a full line which is recommended by safety experts for fall prevention. With products ranging from stackable cones, foldable signs, and inexpensive collapsable A-Frames, our solution for slip & fall prevention is not only fun and unique, but proven to be more effective. Specifically focusing on floor safety, Banana Products promotes health, safety and humor.

Why the banana? Well…The iconic banana peel slip dates back to the early 1800’s and was used in the worlds first comedy film made by Charlie Chaplin. During this time, public sanitation wasn’t a priority due to minimal state regulation. This resulted in an abundance of trash on the streets. It didn’t take long for the bananas to rot which turned the sidewalks into slime-covered booby traps. Now a popular comedy gag, the banana peel slip is recognized by both children and adults worldwide. Incorporating the banana peel into a safety cone helps deliver the “don’t slip” message while adding a humorous twist. So Stand out from the Bunch™ and Go Bananas for Safety™ with Banana Cones™!
