#1161: Spidershield

I’m told by various family members that in Australia, car crashes sometimes happen because the large and aggressive Huntsman spider likes to hide under the sun visors of vehicles. These crevices resemble the bark of trees: the spider’s natural habitat.

Driving along a freeway on a sunny day, it’s possible to see a 10cm creature drop and scuttle across one’s lap. Forget texting, this has to be the most dangerous distraction ever.

Today’s invention is a simple solution, consisting of a sheet of magnetised steel which can be bonded direct to the back of any sun visor.

Each time the visor is folded back and stowed, the magnet presses the visor hard against the roof of the vehicle -making ingress, by even the most tenacious invertebrates, impossible.
