Driveway Markers

Mark Your Territory

This winter, keep the cars and snowplows on your driveway and off your yard.

If you live in a northern climate (like Minnesota where I live), then you probably know the frustration of someone driving over your lawn because it was hidden under the snow. Or maybe you’ve watched with horror as a snowplow clearing your driveway took out some adjacent landscaping. Well, these clever driveway markers can help keep drivers on the
right path. And they’re not like the old-style markers that are rusty, rigid and usually break before the season ends. Instead, Rebound Driveway Markers are spring-mounted and can bend 90 degrees without breaking. The reflective tape at the top makes them easy to see, but if a plow or car drives over them, they’ll bounce right back up. Even if someone opens a car door into one of these fiberglass markers, it will bend back and won’t scratch the car. Plus they’re easy to install with an 8-inch metal spike that can penetrate frozen ground.

The inventor of the Rebound marker is Arra David (on the left with CEO Mike Collins), a mechanical engineer who designs high-end gift products for a living. Arra was inspired by the poles that line a slalom ski run, and he used that inspiration to solve two problems with traditional driveway markers: They’re hard to install on frozen ground and they break all the time. Arra’s driveway markers keep snowplows and wayward drivers on the straight and narrow — and they’ll last a lot longer than one season. Where have these been all my life?

Grommet Launch Conversation

    This Grommet is for those of us who are lucky enough to live in snowy places and use driveway markers. Rebound was born from my frustration trying to install the existing types of driveway markers in hard ground, and the annual replacement of those too-easily-broken markers. It’s a simple idea, and it really solves the problem.

    I've noticed a heck of a lot of practical items being ordered as holiday and birthday gifts this year...I suspect that these driveway markers will find themselves into gift recipients' hands as well.

    I love this one! I just crushed a marker last week trying to avoid the recycle bin that blew into my driveway. Unfortunately, I've done in my budget for December but will revisit this grommet after the first of the year!

    These driveway markers are awesome and a perfect solution for those of us who don't get our driveway markers in before the ground is frozen. We used to hammer in wooden stakes (one of the only "hammerable" options) that break or suffer driveway and grass damage from misguided plowing. Love these markers!

    @Betsy - Arra really captured what was wrong with traditional driveway markers when he created these. Problem - How do I put in driveway markers when the ground is already frozen? Rebound driveway markers two part system allows you to drive the end of the marker into the ground with a hammer. Smart solution!

    Thanks for stopping by!
