Carlsbad, California — In an organized home garage and an ideal world, every car has its space
A good number of San Diego homeowners, though, use their garage for purposes other than parking their cars. Garages are often converted to home gyms, to play areas for kids–and most frequently, for storage.
For those San Diego homes that actually use their garages for parking cars, though, we have discovered a simple tool that will flash an alert when a car pulls too far forward in the garage–which could nick the car’s paint and finish. An inexpensive and portable Flashing Garage Parking Signal aims to solve this parking dilemma.
The device is an adjustable, 44-inch tall parking aid that lights up red when touched by a car. It comes with a weighted base to prevent slippage ,and its pole is flexible to protect cars (and itself) from damage.
Aside from two batteries, no assembly is required. Just place the device on the floor of your garage where you want your front bumper to stop– and you’ll get a perfect, nick-free park job every time.
In fact, I am thinking of carrying one of these gizmos around for parallel parking on city streets. Think it might work?
The Flashing Garage Parking Signal costs $17 at Amazon.
