The only rule for contestants is that they must use rubber bands in their invention. Andrew thought it might be a great, cheap way to tackle his goal to help parents remember when they have a child in the back seat.
Andrew created the E-Z Baby Saver and won second place, taking home $500.
He used his prize money to buy a laptop and create his Web site.
The E-Z Baby Saver is a simple device made of duct tape and rubber bands.
The device stops parents in their tracks so they are unable to walk away from the car when a child is inside.
It is a strap that stretches from the back seat to the front and attaches to the driver's side door.
