Blizzerator - Ergonomic Snow, Ice Scraper

The Blizzerator snow and ice scraper makes clearing vehicles of snow and ice a breeze - even for shorter stature people.

Description: Blizzerator Reinvents Much Needed Winter Accessory … Ergonomic Snow, Ice Scraper Faster, Keeps Drivers Dry. The Blizzerator is perfect for shorter stature people and those with disabilities … The Blizzerator patent-pending ergonomic design transforms a hand-held ice scraper or snow brush to an elongated tool ideal for clearing car roofs, large SUVs and trucks. Dr. Rick Henningsen, D.C., inventor of the Blizzerator, came up with the idea after seeing his 5’1” wife try to clear 14 inches of snow from her car on a wintery morning. "The ice scraper she was using was inefficient: it was too short for her and even as she was able to remove a patch of snow, a fresh batch would pile right up again,” said Dr. Henningsen. “I had an epiphany that it all boiled down to size and shape. Vehicles aren't flat, they are curved, and they aren’t small. So why are we flailing around with small, flat nearly useless toys when we need…well, ‘weapons’ to fight back at winter?" Easy to use The Blizzerator is a large, flexible, lightweight, inexpensive tool that will quickly clean vehicles of any size without soaking drivers.
