Bud Malmstrom is the inventor of the Emergency Box Stop (EBS). He had a problem. He would organize his trunk, close it and the next time he looked into the trunk all of his cargo had shifted. It made it difficult to find a safe place to put groceries or add cargo. There had to be a way to keep the cargo in place so using the trunk space would be easier and more pleasurable. He looked on the internet and found no real solutions to the problem. He came up with a corner stop with hook Velcro on the bottom for his tool box and other cargo and the Box Stop was formed. He searched the patent office website for anything similar and decided to start the patent process (EBS is currently Patent Pending). After a lot of thought, he began to refine the idea and at the same time to expand it. He realized the Box Stop could be even more valuable to the user if he added reflective tape to the outside so it could be used in emergency situations as a warning to oncoming traffic. By setting it out on the side of the road as truckers do with their triangle reflectors. Most people have to take everything out of the trunk anyway to get their spare tire, so why not use them to help protect the worker. Hence, the Emergency Box Stop by Simple Innovations, Inc. was born. The hole on the top was conceived when the idea of using a bungee cord to help hold cargo in place, like on a cooler on a pontoon boat, was envisioned.
Since then he and others came up with a myriad of uses for the EBS. It can be nailed or screwed to lumber hanging out of a truck bed, and tie a red cloth to it using the bungee cord hole. It can be attached to a deer stand to easily find the stand’s location in a pre-dawn search using a flashlight to shine on the reflective tape. Then out of hunting season, it can be unattached and reused in the trunk. It can be nailed or screwed into wood and small desk flags put through the hole to catch the attention of those passing by a home for sale or just for holidays. It can be used in the corners of stairs and reflective tape put on the inside of the triangles to alert emergency personnel or firefighters where the stairs are in a smoky environment. Then again, removed and reused in the trunk of your car or on a boat. One EBScan be used on the muzzle of your rifle and one on each corner of the stock to keep the rifle from sliding around in your trunk to help protect your optics from damage. The uses are only limited to your own imagination.
