In 1841, John Rand got a patent for the first collapsible roll-up tube. The tube was used for everything from toothpaste and glue to ointments and caulk. Today, tubes still are used for many things and you see them everywhere. Even though Rand’s first tubes were made of soft lead rather than today’s soft vinyl plastic hybrids, the problems were the same.
