The BOB Protector is a unique new product designed specifically for Smart ForTwo Cars. This innovative product twists into the chassis of the vehicle using screw mounts that currently exist in the ForTwo model. The BOB (Bounce of Bumper) Protector then acts as a buffer between the rear of the car and obstructions helping to prevent scratching and denting to the bodywork.
Founded in 2012 by Rob Leake, after experiencing issues with his own Smart ForTwo being used as a bumper car outside his home in Portsmouth, the BOB Protector has come along way since its initial conception. After winning the ‘Stop Dreaming, Start Believing’ competition fronted by Fareham based business entrepreneur, Stuart Mundy, Rob was able to receive the financial backing needed to turn his idea into a reality. Now in 2015, the BOB is available to purchase and it is the only product on the market offering effective protection at an affordable price to Smart car owners. Designed to fit securely into the existing holes on the Smart car, attaching the product onto the vehicle is completed in two easy steps by removing the bumper caps and simply screwing the BOB Protector into place. BOB is available in a variety of colours to suit different tastes and the ergonomic design creates a stylish finish whilst remaining functional.
Talking about his product and winning the business backing, Rob Leake comments, “Winning the business backing and support from Stuart was an amazing feeling as it has enabled me to turn what had only been a dream for a long time, into a reality. Now our patent is in place, I am looking forward to launching the Bob Protector to Smart car owners, enthusiasts and dealerships and hope that all Smart Cars of the future will be sporting a BOB Protector very soon.”
