We spent a TON of time in our cars! On a typical day I spent at least 3 hours just back and forth hauling Eli to school. We also take a ton of road trips. In an effort to make our car time more comfortable and safe I have found the best car seats for the kids, device chargers and holders for all of us, seat mats, floor mats... there's just one thing that always seems to get us. THE DREADED SEAT CRACK!
Peek down between your car seat and the center console and what do you see? Dirt, food, coins, jewelry, makeup, papers, and we all know how bad it is to drop your keys and your cell phone down there. In Maryland we have a hands free cell phone law, meaning you are not allowed to use your phone while driving, but there are tons of people who still do I'm sure and how many distracted drivers do you think have dropped their phones or other items down there and almost caused accidents trying to fish it out?
Every single day there are accidents and deaths due to distracted drivers looking away from the road for that brief second it takes to try to retrieve an item from between the seats. In fact Driver Distraction has now become the #1 killer on the road, over Drunk Driving! It's this fact that fueled inventors Jeffrey Simon and Marc Newburger to invent the Drop Stop and take it to Shark Tank. Drop Stop is a new product that goes between your car seat and console to keep anything from falling down between and keep the driver less distracted! After partnering with Shark Tank's Lori Greiner the Drop Stop moved forward to be named Oprah.com's #1 way to declutter your car! It is endorsed by various police departments and AAA as a must-have safety device to reduce driver distraction for all vehicles. It’s designed to protect drivers of all ages in all Cars, Trucks, and SUVs.
The Drop Stop is easy to use. Made of high grade neoprene in a nice black/grey color that doesn't clash with your car interior or stand out, the Drop Stop easily fits between your car seat and console. It squeezes, squishes and stretches in between and attaches over the seat belt catch making it a one size fits all for any size vehicle! It also moves right with the seat! Once you put it in you can forget it's even there unless you want to pull it out and clean it! It's easy to clean, able to be wiped right off, or if you happen to spill liquids on it (like I did when they handed me a drink in the drive-thru without a secure lid) you could even wash it in the washing machine on hand wash and air dry! So far I have been using the drop stop over a month in my Chevy Sonic and I have to say it has been wonderful! I have not had to adjust it once, even when my father drove my car and had to move the seat it stayed perfectly in place. I like the fact that it actually widens the console so I am able to sit things down there knowing that having the Drop Stop on each side actually creates a little barrier to hold things in place. It also serves as a guide to easily place my drink back down into the cup holder without having to take my eyes off the road.
I am loving the Drop Stop and how it helps keep my family safe! I know you will love it too! Want to get your own Drop Stop and help keep more families safe?
