Child Safety

http://www.accessatlanta.com/weblogs/buzz/2014/jun/24/invention-could-save-children-dying-hot-cars/

About once every ten days or so in the United States a child dies in a car seat because the driver forgot the kid in the car.  This device attaches to the car seat and to the drivers car door as a reminder to take the baby out of the car seat. 

It's sort of like what the phone and cable companies do when they park their vans and put a cone at the front and rear of their vehicles.  It reminds them to check the vehicle front and rear for safety before they drive away.

Police departments like to give away safety related stuff.  This might be a good item to give away at safety fairs, and day care centers.  They could be manufactured pretty cheaply, they are little more than a bungee cord.  It might save a few kids; that's what the SGT Says.
