Golf ball size hail vs my car...
 
I live in Oklahoma as most of you know. And the waves of storms brought at least three waves of golf ball size hail through my neighborhood. Since I only have room for the mini and my wife's car in the garage, the truck had to stay outside. But I have a secret weapon to defend against hail. Check out the video to see what it is.

I have relatives in NE and KS and they all use old comforters for protection. Sometimes several of them.......lol

There are many alternative options, but this one is good for me. Rolls up and stays in the bed of my truck until I need it. Battery powered or AC and works extremely well. The golf balls didn't do a single thing to it. It's saved me from at least 5 similar hail storms now.

That's $2500 worth of deductibles saved.

Hey it is a great product, just thought it was funny that a lot of folks use old comforters as protection...;)

My neighbors always give me crap about it in a joking way, but when we went outside and they all had some intense hail damage and I was under the bubble... no one was laughing. lol.

Looks some kind of horror movie catapillar.....lol!

Glad to see it really works!

I seem to recall seeing this thing on one of those "inventors" shows that look for backing and manufacturing help a few years ago, and thought it was an awesome idea.... I've used pillows, couch cushions and comforters to avoid that shit! Thought I was going to have to do that for the MINI at the Dragon a couple of years ago (hail went right around Fontana)

I bet the neighbors shut up laughing real quick and they will all have them next week, (how many asked where you got it? lol)

MtyMous 05-08-2015 06:50 PM

They all know where I got it. One guy has a 3 car garage, 2 cars, but too much shit in it to pull both cars in so I have no sympathy.
