  • That steering wheel phone holder.... Well, first, it will distract you while driving, your eyes will try to follow it, you will try to compensate for rotation and it will obscure the dashboard and then..... When you crash, it might turn into a projectile once your airbag deploys.

  • The phone holder seems like it would create a very dangerous situation if the airbags were to go off, maybe it would send the phone flying into your face or something, doesnt seem safe at all

  • I think that hanger hook seems pretty useful, and I'm tempted to buy some. Never thought I'd be saying that on one of these videos 😂

  • 11:22 I have this and it's horrible!! One side is constantly trying to spin and it can't hold up even the smallest smart phone. And no, I didn't buy it, a family member gave it to me.

  • The steering wheel phone holder would have been nice when I had hour long lunch breaks at one job. I would spend most of it in my car, eating lunch and reading or watching videos, and something handsfree and close to my face would have been nice. Would not use while driving. Second hook on the hanger hook thing could be for accessories.

  • The phone stand would've been better if A: the stand came with a case that had a designated attachment and pivot point B: a magnet on one end of the stand and another magnet that came with adhesive to stick to your phone...maybe not, idk if magnets can damage phones but I guess it would be worth a try

  • That hook small space in a cupboard need to hang some clothes. Use one of them space saving device. On the actual bar where you hang the clothes my little boy has quite a few clothes in his cupboard. The clothes get smushed together and hangers fall off if empty. So one of these could be used for the hangers themselves.

  • These gadgets are proof that some people should be kept away from thermal molding and plastic injection machines at all costs. Solving problems that don’t exist adds to real problems that do exist, like plastic trash and a house full of throwaway crap you don’t really use.

  • You reviewed Lock Laces a few months back and I can't thank you enough! I am 73 years old with some arthritis in my thumbs. All of my life, even when I was young, I would double tie my laces, but no matter what, after a few minutes, they would come undone. The double tying caused the top of my feet to hurt. I bought a few packs of Lock Laces and it has changed my life. They stay tied. They also don't need to be retied every day and because they are elastic, I can just slide my shoes on, but they still feel snug without being too tight. I've been using them daily for 2 months now and I really love them. For older people especially, they are a godsend. Thank you so much for reviewing these. I am sure I wouldn't have tried them (or even heard of them) if you hadn't reviewed them.
