This Lady Wraps A Rubber Band Through The Dashboard Vent Of Her Car. The Reason Is Brilliant

Few things are as distracting and dangerous as using a cell phone when you’re driving a car. They take the user’s focus and attention away from where it should be, on the road, and are to blame for thousands of auto-related accidents and fatalities every year. That’s why many states in the US and countries have banned the use of them while driving and made it an illegal offense.

However, the law doesn’t stop drivers from utilizing their phones, especially for navigational purposes. The paper maps of yesterday have been replaced by the mobile phone GPS systems of today. Lots of people would be lost without their cells directing them where to go, exactly when to turn, and how to avoid tolls or traffic.

If you’re going to use your phone then you may as well lessen the risks involved and have it close-by within your line of sight. That way you don’t have to take your eyes off the road for as long or look all over for it, thus reducing your overall level of distraction. The best way to keep it handy and nearby is via use of a cell phone holder and if you don’t have one, don’t sweat it, just check out this video from One Crazy House!

The creative solution seen here is an easy and affordable way to quickly rig up a cell phone holder. All you need is a sturdy rubber band and 5 seconds of time. Take the rubber band and stick one end of it through your car vent. Loop it around a vent slot so that you end up pulling the end out a different one that’s below it. To make this a lot easier you can use a screwdriver to catch the band, as shown in the video. Once it’s looped through the vent pull the two ends of the band out and place your phone in the open space between the dash and elastic. Adjust the rubber band towards both ends of the phone to form a snug fit that will hold it securely in place and you’re all set to go!

This is the most simple and effective way to create a smartphone holder for your car. Besides making life all the more easy, it will also make driving safer for you and your passengers, and who doesn’t want that?
