Outside Ashtray Keeps Butts Off Roads

After years of watching smokers toss cigarette butts out the window while driving, Mark Sloan came up with a nifty solution an ashtray that mounts outside the vehicle.
  The Lake Worth, Fla., inventor says the 6-in. long container holds up to 20 butts. It's fireproof so you can put them in while lit.
  Thin velcro covered magnets hold the "X-tray" to a vehicle's door. It won't scratch the paint, Sloan says. It can also be velcroed to the slanted part of a car window.
  All you do is slide the lid open and put the lit butt in. It's designed to take advantage of airflow that sucks the butt into the container.
  "It's a portable ashtray that can go anywhere from car to work truck to job site toolbox and back again," he says. It can be used on trucks, tractors, boats, golf carts, ATV's and even motorcycles.  
  Sells for $9.95 plus S&H.
