A Seatbelt for Bags Can Help You Concentrate on the Road

In this age of technology, where everything connects to the cloud or needs an app, it takes a simple bit of engineering to stand out. A seatbelt for bags while you drive around like there’s no tomorrow, as reported by Gizmodo, clearly fits into this category. 

The best place to put a bag of groceries or even take-out food when you are driving alone is the passenger seat, right next to you. Not only can you keep an eye on it while you drive, but it is also unlikely that you will forget it in the car and have

Bago: A Hilarious Object Designed to Keep Bags Upright on the Floor of a Car

I don’t deny that this object is clever (for what it is), but I’m stunned that people would purchase one for the $22 asking price. Bago seems like a simple thing to rig up.

This Seatbelt for Bags Is Brilliant

I try not to buy into the hype of every gadget and gizmo I see online. Not all of them are as great as they seem—really, who needs a battery-powered backscratcher—and plus, I’d go broke in a hurry. That’s not to say I can’t appreciate a good one when I see it, and this seatbelt for bags definitely falls into that category.

It’s called the BAGO, and it keeps your backpack or grocery sack sunny side up. It actually anchors to the inside of your glovebox and has a nice, heavy-duty, spring-loaded metal clip at the other end. Once
