I never realized that runaway shopping carts were such an issue until I saw a mother running after a cart that was flying through the parking lot with her tot inside. I must not be the only one who has witnessed this, as I was recently made aware of two products designed to prevent such incidents.
The Cart Stopper (shown on the left) and the Kart Katcher (shown on the right) secure shopping carts to vehicles to keep you from having to sprint through the parking lot. Using suction or latches, the products are non-damaging to cars and keep kids close at hand while you load your car. Sold for $10 and $6, respectively, we want to know what you think of these mom-created inventions.
