Ashtray for the "Outside" of Vehicles is the Smokers' Solution to Flicking Butts

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - June 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As we're entering a severe dry/fire season and last summer's four hurricanes put more kindling on the ground the X-tray ( from inventor Mark Sloan is "an idea whose time has come."

Why do smokers flick their lit butts out the window? To start fires? To pollute waterways? To tick everyone off? Nope. They're just trying to keep their car from smelling like an ashtray.

Inventor Mark Sloan has the answer to these questions, "I just put the X-tray where the lit cigarette butts are being flicked. Outside the car. It's that simple!"

The X-tray(TM) attaches to the outside of a car door with two soft magnets or to the angled leading edge of a car window with a strip of Velcro(R). The X-tray is completely removable and portable. It works on trucks, motorcycles, boats and golf carts too.

Adds Sloan, "A tobacco company is very interested in the X-tray for a summer environmental campaign and the National Parks Service & US Forest Service have just approved the X-tray to be sold at their Campgrounds, Visitor Centers and Gift Shops." "I've been contacted quite a few times with inventions for smokers and finally someone has a product that solves the problem for everyone."
