ST. CHARLES, Mo., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Flugwerk Design today announced the launch of the CAPGATOR™ device, designed specifically for the use of protecting motorists from unwanted fuel odors on their hands, while aiding to protect users from germs and contaminants.

Most traditional defense options for motorist are not eco-friendly, limits protection from exposure to fuel residue or odors, and can be an on-going consumable for station owners to maintain. CAPGATOR™ is the first product designed to conveniently stow under the vehicles fuel cap lid.  Designed with articulating finger pockets for easy handling, the device acts as barrier between all touch points during a normal refueling process.

Carl Webster President of Flugwerk Design stated, "Reuters reported that a study conducted by Kimberly-Clark Professional indicated that gas pump handles are a breeding ground for the worst bacteria and viruses. In fact, it's been identified that gas pump handles are the number one dirty surface that people touch in their daily lives. We've developed the CAPGATOR™ device to provide a unique solution in protecting motorist from this situation."

CAPGATOR™ is an inexpensive automotive component, designed and manufactured in St. Peters, MO, USA.  CAPGATOR™ offers a smooth-top model, available in custom colors, which enables imprinting of company logos or brand messaging—keeping the brand in the hands of the user every time they refuel.

To launch the device we've created a crowdfunding campaign on KICKSTARTER running now through November 22, 2015.  There are over one-billion registered vehicles worldwide, and our goal is for the CAPGATOR™ to become a standard accessory on all vehicles.
