Bago: A Hilarious Object Designed to Keep Bags Upright on the Floor of a Car

Why DIY when you can buy?

I don't deny that this object is clever (for what it is), but I'm stunned that people would purchase one for the original $22 asking price.

Bago seems like a simple thing to rig up.

It's basically an adjustable strap and a small A-clamp.

You throw one end into the glovebox, then attach the clamp to a bag on the floor mat, holding it upright:


This seems like one of those quirky only-in-Japan objects.

Instead, it was invented — and successfully crowdfunded on both Kickstarter and IndieGogo — by a guy named Dan Stevenson, who hails from Atlanta.

Congrats to Stevenson.

For the rest of you, here's proof that if you have the idea for a simple and even narrowly useful object, there's probably a market out there for you.
