I'm blind as a bat. When I got my last pair of glasses I opted for the version that has the sunglasses attachment that mounts magnetically. Over my time of wearing them there have been times when I 've needed to take them off, but not had time to put them away (e.g. driving into a parking garage). I would either put them in my lap or the cup holder. Not only did this risk scratching them, but invariably they go flying if I have to break hard. I decided to take advantage of the magnet already in them to solve this problem.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

*A rod or other suitably shaped piece of ferrous material
*Super Glue
*Isopropyl alcohol
*A car
*A cotton ball

*Dremel w/ cut off wheel (or other implemtns of metal cutting and shaping)
*Bench vise or other way to hold your work piece.
<p>This looks definitely better then mine. I used magnet deliverd with Sugru, placed it on top of my dash board (fixed with Sugru, of course), and thats it.</p>
Nice! You might even want to glue one to the visor.
Damn! Why didn't I think if that? That would've been a much better location.
