Grab and go
The Universal Stick-On Cell Phone Wallet by Gear Beast allows you to keep your phone, ID, cards and cash together in one spot while you’re on the go. The folio style wallet features three card slots for debit or credit cards plus a transparent ID slot and a durable snap closure helps keep your cards secure. Built-in RFID blocking protects you from electronic pickpocketing of personal information and data. The wallet securely attaches to the back of your cellphone without blocking your camera, buttons or ports and requires space of 4.25 x 2.5 inches for placement. It adds less than half inch to the depth of your phone or case for easy insertion into a pocket. The wallet is constructed of polyurethane leather and is available in a variety of colors and patterns. For more information and to order, visit GearBeast.com.
So short … and yet so long
The DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder from Doleco USA is designed to save drivers the time and effort needed to disengage cargo securement chains for retensioning. According to the company, the DoRa is 20% shorter than other load binders yet extends to twice their length, giving users twice the tensioning distance. The patented spindle-in-a-spindle ratchet configuration of the binder allows the ratchet housing to be significantly shorter by enabling one threaded spindle to retract by screwing inside the other. When extended, the DoRa’s longer spindle length allows users to start out with a tighter chain and to perform multiple retensionings without the need to disengage the binder’s clevis hooks from its chains. For more information, visit DoRa-Binder.com or call 203-440-1940.
An eco-friendly and convenient alternative to single-use plastic water bottles, the Collapsible Silicone Water Bottle by Que helps keep you hydrated when you’re on the road while saving precious space in your truck or bag. With a liquid capacity of 20 fluid ounces, the bottle collapses down to half its size – a mere 4.25 inches by 2.8 inches – for transport and storage. It is made of flexible silicone with spiraled grooves that collapse and expand like an accordion. The 18-8 stainless steel rim and cap keep an air-tight seal that prevents leakage. The bottle is BPA-free and is made of food-grade silicone approved by the FDA and LFGB. It is top-rack dishwasher safe and can accommodate hot beverages up to 350 degrees. A 12-fluid-ounce option also is available. Visit QueBottle.com for more information and to order.

Lucas Oil has your back
In response to the health crisis created by COVID-19, Lucas Oil Products has introduced a hand sanitizer available in a 64-fluid ounce refill bottle. Because hand sanitizers can be drying to the skin, Lucas Hand Sanitizer contains a small amount of glycerin to reduce that tendency. It is a great product to have on the road when soap and water are not readily available. The sanitizer consists of 80% ethyl alcohol in a water-thin formula developed in accordance with FDA recommendations. It is manufactured and packaged in an FDA-registered facility. The fast-acting antiseptic has a milder odor than isopropyl alcohol-based formulas. For more information and to find a retailer, visit LucasOil.com or call 800-342-2512. LL
