Within a decade, the police department dissolved, and the Contraption was passed nearly door-to-door, as no households were interested in claiming the wrench for more than a few days. Finally, the Contraption found its way to the front door of Sir Walls the Second, the then-CEO of Costless Bargains. Sir Walls re-established the wrench as the logo of the company, and placed it under lock and key.

In 1983, Sir Walls the Third took over the family business and renamed it [[Cheap As Free]], worried that the former aging terminology would mean nothing to modern shoppers. In 1995, to celebrate the coming millennium, he had the Contraption covered in solid titanium. To serve as the launch of a proposed massive ad campaign, the Contraption made a cameo in a Strong Bad Email; interestingly, it was cast as a wrench that was being used by Bubs, who would later own the Purple Wrench itself. This decision was met with much applause, until an 80-year-old Sir Walls the Second was arrested for stealing "public" property, as the law had stated that material confiscated by the Free Country, USA police department became public after ten years (part of the reason for its demise). Cheap As Free was absorbed into rival company [[Harmless Junk, Inc.]], which renamed itself Cheap As Free Conglomerate. The Cupric Contraption's value ironically dropped to [[$11.01|eleven dollars and one penny]], making it no more valuable than the original price of its own plastic knock-offs. Due to this rapid turn of events, the Strong Bad Email was quickly scrapped, although the Contraption's cameo remains in a clip show known as "[[personal favorites]]".

In 2001, a ten-year-old Sir Walls the Fourth, not knowing the historical significance of the wrench, [[The House That Gave Sucky Treats|gave the Cupric Contraption away as candy]] to an unknown man who bore a striking resemblance to Popeye character J. Wellington Wimpy. After receiving the wrench, the man proceeded to dematerialize it into thin air. When interviewed about his decision, the man replied, "Oh no, I think this is my favorite."
