A really useful item for keeping purses and bags in place in large vehicles!
on August 13, 2008
This is a great little item for when a purse hook isn't already integrated into your vehicle. I have a 2008 Scion xB, and I was having a lot of issues with where to put my purse. If I sat it on the seat, it'd roll off onto the floorboard. If I put it on the passenger or back floorboard, it would roll around the floor wells and it was a huge effort to find the purse if I or my passenger needed something out of it. When I put it on the center consol, it scratched the finish (EKKKK!!). It was a distraction to my driving to say the least to constantly worry about flying items all over the car if I forgot to zip my purse. Other Toyota vehicles often have a purse hook integrated into the passenger side, so I started looking around for something to add to the car, either modding or just accessorizing. Toyota Japan had a super cool suit hanger/purse hook you could attach to the backside of the pass. headrest, but it was $60-80, hard to order and almost a little large for what I was looking for. I found a few other purse/car hanger hooks on the internet, but it seemed like they were too small and wimpy. I needed something a little more heavy duty to put up with my abuse. This particular item fulfills my needs: large hooks for easy on/off of several bags/purses at once, it seems hardy, it's easy to turn to the backside of the headrest if a passenger climbs in the front seat, and no installation. Just hook and go. Since I bought it, I've had no problems with rolling/flying purses and bags, and it's easy to grab anything out of my purse I need. I've gotten compliments on it from several of my friends who love its utility. I'd recommend this for little cars where organizational space is at premium, and I'd recommend it for big trucks and SUVs, where too much interior space is a drawback when reaching for your bag.
The black color is a little stark and boring and cheap looking, so I think I'm going to spray paint it. It'd be great if these were made in different colors normally, either to match upholstery or as something bright in the car.
