Compact Ice Scrapers

This Car Accessory Fits Inside of a Simple Metal Tube and is Easy to Store

— November 2, 2015 — Autos
This innovative ice scraper concept by designer Chris Lane of 'fordesign' offers a sleek and functional car accessory in a compact design.

Designed with BMWs in mind, this car accessory seeks to remove the storage problem associated with the "T design" of typical car scrapers or handheld windshield wipers. The entire design actually fits inside of an aluminium tube handle with threaded lids on the top and bottom of the main body. Simply unscrew the lid to pull out a combination ice scraper and windshield wiper that easily screws into the top of the threaded device.

The blade itself is made from a sharp molded aluminium plate with a rubber wiper attached on the opposite end. When you're finished cleaning your windshield, the entire package can easily be stored away inside of a glove compartment or side storage pocket of your car.
