Simple tool clips to vehicle visors to protect bikes, kayaks, rocket boxes, racks, and more from damage or loss

Gear Saver, a new tool designed to clip to your vehicle’s visor and protect the gear secured up top, is now available via Kickstarter.

“Years ago, my daughter and I were returning from an epic father-daughter mountain bike excursion when suddenly – BANG! I had forgotten the bikes on top of the car when I drove into our garage. We crashed into the garage and our bikes were destroyed. The car’s back windshield broke and there was damage to the house too,” said Tim Meehan, Co-founder of the Gear Saver. “After realizing thousands of dollars in damage, I knew there had to be a better way to remind myself to remove my gear in the driveway before I enter the garage. That’s when the Gear Saver was born.”

The simple clip-on tool easily attaches to any vehicle visor to help remind drivers that their beloved gear is attached to the roof. The product is available now via Kickstarter for $12.99 apiece or two for $20. Free shipping is available for anyone who purchases five or more units.

“Tim and I are great friends and retired veterans who have been exploring singletrack trails together for years,” said David Vann Co-founder of Gear Up. “We’re thrilled to offer the Gear Saver to provide peace of mind. Whether you’re heading to a start line or out for a bit of solitude on a familiar trail, just flip down the Gear Saver and you won’t have to worry about forgetting your gear like Tim did all those years ago.”

A perfect holiday gift, the Gear Saver is an inexpensive item for that person in your life who is rarely seen without a bike, kayak, paddleboard, ski or snowboard equipment, or another form of gear secured to the top of their car.

“We’ve met with several outdoor gear shop owners who have consistently told us about how many customers experience the same loss of expensive gear,” said Meehan.
