If you’ve ever ridden the tube in London, you’re familiar with the phrase “Mind the gap”. Here’s another spin on that. A couple of months ago I bought some super cute new earrings. Two days later, while getting ready in the car (as I so often do) I lost one of my cute earrings in the vast, dark world that is the gap between my drivers seat and my console. In the blink of an eye it was gone, never to be recovered. It made its way to the deepest, tightest crevices of my floorboard, apparently, because I can neither see it nor reach it by feeling around. That darn seat gap! What is it there for anyway??
If you’re a child of the 80’s like me, your family may have driven a station wagon…which you may recall had one long seat, all the way across…not these individual seats with gaps in between! Ford was onto something, I think.
But never fear. Drop Stop is here! Never again will I lose a french fry, lip gloss, cell phone or earring.
I’m a big fan of the show Shark Tank. Inevitably during each episode either my husband or I will turn to the other and say “Why didn’t YOU think of that?!” The Drop Stop was one of those featured products that solves a basic everyday problem experienced by millions of people, making it appealing to both investors and consumers. Recently Drop Stop generously shared one of their products with Daily Momtivity so that we could conduct a product review.
The Drop Stop product comes with 2 Drop Stops. I installed one on the drivers’ side, and one on the passenger side of my console. You could otherwise just install one on your drivers’ side and give the other one to your spouse for their car. It was very, very easy to install. Really the word “install is a bit of an exaggeration, because in actuality you’re just pushing it down into the gap and that’s pretty much it! There is a hole to fit over the seat belt.

I drive a Honda Odyssey minivan, and they fit into the gap with ease, but I have to say there is still a small gap left. (see left) I wondered if maybe I just needed to adjust it a bit, so I turned the Drop Stop over and tried the other side, and then adjusted my seat forward and back again to see if it would fit better in another position. I also pushed the product down over the seat belt clasp as much as possible. The small gap remains…but it’s not a big deal, really. The Drop Stop is designed to be one size fits all, and that’s a lofty goal, with every vehicle being a bit different. The product definitely does block most or all items from dropping into oblivion, and that is fantastic!
Daily Momtivity would like to thank Drop Stop for generously sharing their product with us. We think it’s a smart product that solves a problem experienced by everyone. We wish you continued success with your business!
