PITTSBURGH, Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether car owners repair their automobiles themselves or rely on the services of a professional automotive mechanic, working from underneath the vehicle can be quite uncomfortable and the lighting inadequate. Fortunately, an inventor from Ponahatoula, La., has figured out how to solve both of these problems at the same time.
He developed REFLECTIVE UNDER CAR MECHANICS MAT to provide a hands-free lighting source for automotive undercarriage service or repair work. As such, it eliminates the need to hold a flash light or trouble light. Thus, it provides improved visibility and comfort for an easier repair process. Since it saves time and energy, it improves productivity and customer service as well. This novel invention is also lightweight, portable and easy to use and store. Other appealing features include convenience, effectiveness and an affordable price.
The inventor's personal experience inspired the idea. "When I worked on my car from underneath on a day that the ground was wet and cold, I used a windshield sun shade as a dry surface to lie on," he said. "I was pleasantly surprised that the shade's reflective nature allowed it to light up the bottom of the car."
The original design was submitted to the New Orleans office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
