Entries close on 6 January. Many lights make horn work We’re all aware of the dangers of reversing, particularly in driveways when small children are present. This clever little safety device sounds an alarm when you select reverse. No wiring or installation is required – it simply sticks on your car’s reversing light. When the light goes on, it activates a beeper. In our test, the sound was quite loud enough at a distance of several metres to alert someone behind the car. It’s obv iously not as piercing as a wired-in reversing alarm, but as a cheap (only around $13) and simple accessory, it’s worth having. The Dreambaby Car Reverse Alert Beeper is available from leading hardware, toy and baby stores. Is this the world’s best garlic press? W e grow a big crop of purple garlic, nourished by seaweed, at our family’s remote South Bruny shack. (It’s the only thing the possums and wallabies won’t touch). We use a lot of garlic at home but I’ve never tr ied a garlic press as good as the Garject. Whole unpeeled cloves go into the press – one squeeze presses out the good bits, leaving the peel behind. Opening the press scrapes off any remaining garlic and detaches the peel – then a flick of the ‘peel eject’ button sends the it into the compost bin. Rinse under a tap and you’re done. Sure, you can do it all with a good chef’s knife – but if you like kitchen gadgets, this one is a ripper. Garject is available at Habitat Housewares stores, Croplines Coffee in Launceston, All White in Burnie, Meadowbank Estate at Cambridge or online at www.dreamfarm.com .au. R RP is $39.95 .
