Cure for the Common Curb....

Introducing the "Cure for the Common Curb". Front end damage when parking is a very real problem for many cars on the road today, especially for vehicles who have installed ground effects or aerodynamic profile improvements on their vehicles. Curbs are something that are one of those road hazards that do more damage to sports cars than any other hazard on the road.



In fact, just a simple trip to the corner store can become a costly errand if you over-estimate your front end clearance when parking: damage repairs could easily run $1000 or more; however, Curb Alert provides you a warning system that gives you three-deep warning tones as you approach too close to a curb.



The Curb Alert is very easy to install and does not put a drain on your battery when the car is not on. Using a patented infrared technology, the front mounted sensor is calibrated to a warning distance of anywhere from 8-28" (you decide with whatever you feel comfortable with). The warning alarm is hidden in the car and will give you three gentle tones when you are within a specified distance to the curb. The system gives you a short beep every time you start your car to let you know the system is active.



The Curb Alert is one of a kind and is a gadget that will save you money in the long run, preventing front end damage to any car that is low enough to be vulnerable to a Curb. Do not take a chance, get the Curb Alert to prevent curb damage.

This is not one of those gimmicky products, we have installed it on a Corvette C6 Z06, Nissan GTR, and a Dodge Challenger. In all instances it works exactly as described (we wanted to test it ourselves before we opened the flood gates ) It is the real deal and will save you money in the long run. Heck it might it even give you enough confidence to let your significant other take the car for spin (my biggest worry letting someone else drive my car is there lack of familiarity with judging the curb distance when parking)

We have the Curb Alert in stock and with free shipping.... at the link below...Also have a great video that shows how the system works.

Curb Alert

Thanks,

Very cool! I might finally get the stones to lower my SS with the factory GFX if I pick this up.

Is there anything that gets mounted inside the car, and if so do you have any pictures of how that would look?

There's a tiny speaker piece that goes inside of the cabin that can be installed in a very discreet manner. We've got Curb Alert installed in all of our vehicles, and you'd have to know where the piece is and go actively searching for it to see it. It's a tiny little black speaker piece, and can go up inside of the It just provides a manner by which the unit may give an audible alert once you've reached your distance (programmable between 8 and 28 inches) from the curb that the unit is set to.

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks! We always try to offer the best price available anywhere online!

Also, this system's a little bit cooler and more high-tech than curb 'feelers', lol.

Thanks,
Matt

To figure out international shipping, because it can change based upon exact address, just go through the first couple pages of the checkout process. Our UPS International tool will provide an exact quote for you.

Once it gets done, definitely. We didn't get a chance to get to it this past weekend because of a few issues. Hopefully we'll get it done this weekend and can share the photos and stuff next week.

Thanks,
Matt

The other day I pulled up to far on a parking block. This would have saved me from having to repair my bumper. Well worth the investment!

If you calibrate at the distance and angle for such, yeah it will. If you calibrate it properly, then no, it won't beep every time you go over a speed bump, unless it's a really tall one, of course.

Matt

I could've used this last week... First scratch on my Ground Effects kit. :( Any idea if the Ground Effects will cause problems for this? I know a few after markets don't work w/ the kit.

It will actually work with any kit made, just, some require a little more ingenuity than others. It's a pretty brilliant little set-up, and it's totally universal, just some installations are easier/more obvious than others. Shouldn't cause any problems with it, you just made need to get creative on your mounting point.

Thanks,
Matt

Here is the install on a C5 Corvette....Will be doing a Camaro SS this weekend....

Cool thing with the Camaro is you can put the sensor behind the grille as the slots are big enough to still give the Sensor a clean shot of the street ahead.


Some pics of where I put the sensor and complete install here, Curb Alert Installation....here are a few of the pictures, more at the link above.

I will get more pictures up this weekend, just wanted to get you something to give you an idea.







Camaro install coming soon....

Jim

How hard is it to install one of these? It looks like you have to run a wire through the firewall?
