Car Cane is a device that will help you get in and out of your vehicle. Specifically, it's a portable handle that will slide into your door latch and lock into place instantly so it won't move as you use it. It has a non-slip grip handle so your hand won't slip as you hold onto it, either. The red and black device is strong enough to withstand 350 pounds of pressure, yet it's compact enough to be stored inside your door or in your glove compartment. A flashlight, which will provide up to 100,000 hours of light, is built into each one.
When you use Car Cane, you'll no longer need to ask someone for help getting out of your car, or put strain on your arm by using it to push yourself out of your seat. Instead, you'll simply be able to put your weight on this handle and stand up in seconds. This device is ideal for seniors who suffer from body pain and stiffness, and anyone who has chronic pain due to a medical condition or is recovering from an injury. Even if you're perfectly healthy, if you live in an area that gets icy in the winter, you can hold onto this apparatus so you won't slip and fall.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Attach to Car
When you're ready to get out of your car, just slide your Car Cane into the door latch closest to your seat, regardless of whether you're a passenger or the driver.
- Put Weight on Device
Use your hand that's closest to the device to put your weight on the device, and stand up carefully.
- Remove and Store
After you're safely out of your car, make sure you remove your Car Cane from the door latch, as you won't be able to close your door properly without doing so. Store it in a place where it can be quickly accessed the next time you need to use it.
- Non-slip Grip
The handle of each Car Cane has a non-slip grip, so even if your hand is slippery or sweaty, it won't slide off the device, potentially sending you to the ground. If you want to take advantage of this grip, make sure you hang onto the part of your Car Cane that is red.
- Steel Construction
The Car Cane is made with forged steel, which makes it durable—likely to last a lifetime—and able to withstand a great deal of weight ( 350 pounds ).
- For Use With Various Vehicles
Your Car Cane will work with a variety of vehicles, including tall SUVs with a lot of height between their doors and the ground, and low, compact cars. Hence, if you have more than one vehicle, you'll be able to move the device back and forth between them for use ( or, you could get more than one ).
- Built-in Flashlight
Each Car Cane has a built-in flashlight that offers LED light that will glow for up to 100,000 hours. This will come in handy when you need to get out of your car in the dark, and you can also use it to find your way down a dark street or driveway.
- Makes Car Departure Safer
It's much safer for those drivers or passengers who are in some way physically disadvantaged to exit a car by using Car Cane, instead of struggling on their own.
- Promotes Independence
Some physically disadvantaged people may avoid traveling on their own since they cannot get out of their car themselves without difficulty, but with Car Cane, this will no longer be necessary. Not having to wait for a helper will likely lead to the ability to accomplish tasks more quickly and do more fun activities in a given day.
- Can be Used by Kids
While of course, no child should be driving a car, a child who is just learning to walk or has trouble walking on ice can use Car Cane as a passenger, to attain stability.
- Compact for Storage
Car Cane is small enough to fit in a glove compartment, and if you need to store it inside your home for some reason, it'll fit into most medium-sized drawers.
- Pushing With Arm
If you have a weak back or knees, you can push on the side of your car with one arm to help yourself stand up, but sooner or later, this will cause arm strain.
- Asking for Help
People who have difficulty getting out of cars may get help sometimes, but there may not always be someone around to be of assistance. Plus, being helped might be embarrassing for the most independent-minded people.
