Do you keep dropping items such as keys or a cell phone in the gap between the driver’s seat and the console of your car?

 

It is tough to retrieve the items dropped in that space because the gap is so small, and a hand often does not fit. We usually end-up reaching for a stick or wire hanger to pull the items out, which is not very convenient.

 

This is a great solution: Cut pieces of foam pipe insulation to the length of the gaps, and then  wedge them in the gaps on either side of the console. Nothing falls into the gaps anymore – voila!
