When we get into an accident, our seat belts and air bags protect us and restrain our bodies from moving with the force of inertia. However, all the loose items in your car could cause a fatal punch in the end. You may be surprised by how much things that seem safe or cause little harm could seriously injure you. A bottle of water, for example, can pack a punch with a force 20 times greater than what it weighs. Talk about some nasty bruises. To prevent you and your loved ones in the event of an accident, you should consider different ways to contain loose items in your vehicle.

Some Products to Consider

Umbrellas, tissue boxes, bottles or books, they can all become very dangerous projectiles in the event that your car comes to a sudden stop. Safely store items in a way that will prevent them from being able to fly around the car; you can utilize spots like your glove box or trunk to greatly improve your safety. Here are some organizers to help you store items you need in your car:

Storage Hooks
Instead of letting loose bags of groceries that could contain any number of potentially fatal projectiles lie in the floor; have them placed on hooks on the back of the seats This way the force of gravity and the hooks will help keep the items in the bag.

Trunk Totes

If you have a vehicle such as a wagon or hatchback, it’s important to make sure the items in the back of your vehicle stay there. Use these totes to store and hold items like cleaning supplies or jumper cables or anything else you may keep in your trunk area.” To read the entire article click here.
