As a writer and editor who handles organizing and cleaning beats, I can’t get enough of a good problem-solving product. And I thought I knew about (and bought) them all: the clear shoeboxes for storing everything from lightbulbs to gift bows. The divided organizers for junk-drawer bliss. The lazy Susans for my spices and condiments. You know the drill.

But then I came across a solution to a pesky problem and it truly floored me: The Drop Stop. This brilliant gizmo sent from the heavens fills the gap between your car seat and the center console. You know, the abyss that swallows everything from pens to chicken nuggets and everything in between. Literally.

Heads up: You can get your hands on the Drop Stop in two days with Amazon Prime. Not a member? Sign up here for all the entertainment and shopping benefits Amazon offers. Member now? Get car tool in a jiffy, so you can stop fishing for things between your seats ASAP.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped my iPhone into the abyss. And then had to dig it out, scratching my hands and messing up my manicure or worse, having to stop the car to move the seat and unearth it (talk about first world problems).

As seen on my favorite show of all time, Shark Tank, the Drop Stop seat gap filler will solve your butterfinger issues from now til eternity. And it’s a whole lot safer than searching for things while you’re driving.

Made of squishy neoprene, the Drop Stop conforms to fit any car’s gap, squeezing into a quarter-inch space up to 3 1/2 inches. And the material easily wipes clean (I know this because a Werther’s Original popped out of my mouth and onto the Drop Stop — but at least it didn’t fall into the gap, never to be seen again!).

Not convinced it’s necessary? Perhaps you should grab a flashlight and check out your car’s crevices to see what’s in there. Then we’ll talk.

Now let’s discuss all the random things that could fall in the gap: credit cards, keys, change, earrings, mascara, almonds, bottle caps, pens, gum, candy wrappers, breath mints, rings, gummy worms. Need I say more?

As a mom of two kids, I’m always in the car shuttling the little ones back and forth. And the things that have fallen into that gap are unbelievable. From lanyards to Shopkins to M&Ms and markers, the list goes on and on. But not anymore!

Since the Drop Stop is black just like the rabbit hole, it’s nice and discreet — I barely notice it’s there. To install, you just slide it over the seat belt catch (there’s a slot). It even moves with the seat when you go forward or back.

Each package comes with two universal-fit Drop Stops — one for the driver side and one for the passenger side. As if this genius product wasn’t enough, you’ll also get two free gifts (I won’t ruin the surprise for you).

This is one of those products that I never realized I needed because I didn’t know it existed. But now that I have one, I’ll never go back to leaving my gap unattended. will you

PS Makes a great stocking stuffer!
