A seatbelt for bags. Sounds like a Class A example of someone trying to solve a problem that barely exists—if it even does at all.
Perhaps. But thousands of people saw the idea fit enough to actually throw hard-earned money at it. Bago—which is described as a product designed to “keep your to-go orders and groceries secure, so you can focus on the roads—has racked up more than $7,500 (almost P400,000) in crowdfunding.
Dan Stevenson, who invented Bago, shared on the project’s Indiegogo page that he came up with the idea for Bago while waiting at a stoplight two years ago.
“Since then I've continued to think about the product and have been testing different designs and materials to find the right mix of functionality and durability,” Stevenson said. “I've struck that balance and am so excited to introduce Bago, a product that will serve as a helpful companion in your glovebox for many years to come!”
So, how does it work? Well, it’s essentially a strap with a clamp on one end and a stopper/anchor on the other. The latter goes inside your glove compartment, while the former holds on to your bag to keep things from spilling out. Watch:
Yes, it’s as simple as it sounds. Shipping is scheduled to begin in June 2022. So, genius idea or absurd? Let us know your take on this thing in the comments.
