Picture of Milk Safety Belt
A Scenario

You are ready to leave work when you pick up a call from your loved one.  You hear bring home a gallon of milk.  You are already running late.  Now your hot dinner will have to wait because of this diversion.  You run to your vehicle, put it in gear and race off to the grocery. 
When you arrive, you jump out and run in, pickup the coveted milk, run to the cashier to pay.  The cashier asks if you want it in a bag, to which you reply, “No thank you.” 
Dash back to your vehicle, open the door and realize now where are you going to put the milk so that it does not roll around and spill when it hits something after you make the final turn onto your street? 

Do you wedge it between the bucket seats; wedge your lunch box, purse or briefcase next to it on the floor?  What do you do???  Read on for my solution to this common occurrence.

The intent of this instructable is to
1)  provide a quick and easy way to transport milk in your vehicle,
2)  encourage you to engage in a Do It Yourself franchise and community.

Thank you for viewing and your comments. Sometimes I receive strange looks from people who pass by while I am buckling my milk in to the seat. I just smile and nod, perhaps one day they will understand.

Nice. I've done this as well.

I wonder how many jugs it will hold? How many have you belted at one time? I have only had the need to belt 2 gallons, but there is room for more. I sense a milk safety belt contest. Surely, I jest. Thank you for looking and commenting.
