The Grid-It is great to keep your tech organised and it’s one of the must-have tools in your bag. And as Simply.Striking shows, there are other uses for it too. Mount it to your car’s visor and it’s a great place to keep stuff organised while easily reachable.

The full post at Simply.Striking shows how to make a DIY grid organiser for this purpose. It’s similar to how you’d make a pocket-sized grid organiser or a classy grid in a book case . It will cost you less than $US2, which is a fraction of Cocoon’s official Grid-It sun visor organiser, too.

Head to the link for step-by-step instructions, or if you have a Grid-It you aren’t using, you could repurpose it with a couple of straps to attach to your visor.

  • Pretty sure something like this mounted on the sun visor is a contradiction of vehicle safety requirements.

  • That ‘Organiser’ looks about the same size as the sun visor, which shouldn’t be a problem for seeing out of the windscreen. However, the lipstick will melt and any thermally printed receipts are going to go brown. Also, you can buy an organiser designed for your sunshade for just a few dollars from a discount store. Whether you spend the time making one, or buy the cheap version, It might mean that your visor has to stay permanently down, since it can’t fold up to the car ceiling any more. Over all, more trouble than it’s worth.

  • I bought a couple grid it’s after constantly seeing them mentioned on sites like here.

    Honestly, every time I have used one to try and organise stuff for my back pack or travelling, it’s all pretty awful and it’s easier to just chuck the stuff in a compartment of my backpack.
