Cart Stopper (Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed.

The winner is #24 Jennifer R.

My favorite grocery store’s parking lot is situated on a slight hill. This has always caused me worry of not only having to chase down my shopping cart but when the girls were younger, for their safety as well.  That’s why I can totally understand why Cart Stopper has won an award for Best Product by ORCA Communications Unlimited LLC.


Cart Stopper is a simple and effective device that reduces the risk of child injury and vehicle damage related to “run-away” shopping carts. It holds securely to any clean, flat vehichle surface and immobilized your shopping cart.


It was really the simpliest thing to use! One side had a suction cup and the other had a t-like latch that you put through the shopping cart slots. A durable bungee-type cord connected the two pieces securely. That’s it!

What I really liked was that it was small enough to fit into my purse without adding any extra weight. So for those of you with diaper bags, this will be very easy to store until you need it. It was also great at keeping my very heavy shopping cart next to my car. I checked to make sure the suction cup didn’t look like it would separate and to my surprise it stayed firmly in place. I would feel very secure with having young children in the cart while using Cart Stopper.

    I would love to win this for my daughter. With 5 active children and shopping there is a strong possibility that her cart could get away from her. This would
    keep that from happening. Thank you!

    Many times, I have struggled to unload a full cart with one hand, so that the cart does not wheel away and damage my car or someone else’s. It’s hard work! That’s why I’d like to win this.
