Alexandria, VA (PressExposure) May 03, 2007 -- How did an unexpected rain storm lead to an idea for a new SUV camping product? "It all comes down to necessity," says Magna-Screen Inventor Jeffrey Gray. "Some ideas are born of an immediate need and this is one of them."
Mr. Gray describes how, while camping one night in Virginia, the zipper of his tent failed leaving the interior open to the elements. Forced by a sudden and intense rainstorm to seek shelter in his SUV, Mr. Gray found the experience to be stifling. "I could either roll down the windows and get eaten alive by bugs, or I could roll them up and suffocate. There was no getting comfortable. I just kept thinking that there ought to be a something I could stick over the windows."
Upon finding that no such product was on the market, Mr. Gray quickly designed one to meet his need. Thus, the Magna-Screen was born. "It was like in a cartoon when the little light bulb goes off over a persons head. I just couldn't believe they weren't already available," Mr. Gray added.
Simplicity and Durability:
The Magna-Screens appeal is its simplicity. Just roll down the rear side window of most SUVs and place the Magna-Screen over the window. The screen sticks to the side of the vehicle with a series of small magnets sewn into its border. The Magna-Screen is very pliable, easily stored and is made of durable nylon and mosquito netting.
Greater Comfort than the Cold Ground:
Some campgrounds are crowded, and in others the ground can be like concrete. Magna-Screen helps the camper get up off the cold ground and rest in the greater comfort of a vehicle. Drivers will soon discover other uses for the convenience of the Magna-Screen. Anytime one needs ventilation but don't want bugs - stick on a Magna-Screen.
