    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How to Submit Your Viewer Video On Any Gadget!

    This week we have another neat find from our frequent contributor and gadget lover, Mo Torres:

    This version costs a few bucks more but adds 2 nice features.Hey guys, look at this new item / gadget - try to guess what it is. Mo


    YouTube: https://youtu.be/b1Quc5M7_P4  


    As you'll see in the video it's something Amazon calls: A Doorstep Vehicle Folding Ladder Foot Peg - Peg Easy Access Car Van Rooftop Safety Hammer. Stepknow Car Doorstep Vehicle Folding Ladder Foot Pegs Easy Access to Car Rooftop with Safety Hammer for Jeep Car SUV.


    Mo Paid: $12.99 On 3/9/19 it was $13.89 (price can change at any time on Amazon:)




    But, during the show, the chatroom folks found this one for just a bit more money, but it includes an emergency seat belt cutter & a safety covering for the safety hammer. It was about $18 with a $3 off coupon, so for about $2 more you get some nice added features. Price as of 3/9/19

    We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show, so here's what we're looking for! Your home shot video – 2 to 3 minutes long, in any of the following categories:

    I bought a piece of crap: Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.


    I invented this! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. No professional ads please.


    My Gadget Warehouse: Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.


    My Favorite Gadget (favorite old, or favorite new): Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be a new gadget you just bought too.


    Post them on YouTube and send us the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long! Low production value is fine, but we should be able to hear you and see you! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you’ll earn a tiny amount of fame (hopefully). And if you live in the US, you'll also get an autographed 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture and a MAD surprise (most likely the current issue of MAD.) But no matter where you live, I canemail an autographed to you Alfred E. Neuman photo if we show your video. Just print it out, frame it, or just hang it up and no one will know it's a copy. We've tested it out and fans say they look terrific!
