Nobody likes having their car dinged by careless parkers who fling open their doors.
Today’s invention offers a shield for car sides, without destroying the look of your vehicle.
A housing in the front wheel arch holds a reel of protective material in the colour of the car.
When parking, the driver pulls one end of this reel clear of the body work and walks to the back wheel arch, where a soft plastic hook attaches it to the rear wheel arch.
This impact-absorbing ribbon is wide enough to stop most careless door openers from causing damage.
It also avoids drawing too much attention to the car and could, if strengthened and locked in place, make it harder to break into the vehicle.
