Gadget Alert–Eliminate Crack Bummer

Not again! You’re in your car waiting for an important call when you turn a corner and, Whoops! the phone slides into the crack and under your seat, out of reach. Is your center console so tangled with cords you can’t tell which one goes with which device? The solution is here: the Gap Pal™ fits elegantly into the crack next to your seat and keeps all your devices securely within reach, while also organizing cables and coins for the tollbooth. Taking your eyes off the road even for a second can lead to an accident, and the Gap Pal not only prevents items from slipping under the seat, but also helps drivers keep their attention focused on the road.

The Gap Pal keeps items secure and close at hand.
