The Noggle is the first child comfort system of its kind and the ultimate solution for controlling air temperature in your car’s backseat to make it comfortable for all passengers, especially children in any conditions.
The all-new Noggle is here to help by providing controlled distribution of air throughout the back of your vehicle. During summer months, the backseat of a parked car can reach upwards of 200°F, which puts children entering the vehicle at risk for heatstroke. The Noggle prevents sweaty, uncomfortable, and potentially dangerous car rides for children in the summer and keeps kids warmer and more comfortable during the winter months.
The government recommends children to be rear facing until three-years-old and ride in the back until they are thirteen-years-old, which can make it hard for them to get direct A/C and heat from the car vents in the front seat. The Noggle solved this issue, as it is a child comfort system designed to extend direct A/C or heat anywhere inside of the vehicle. The Noggle is completely universal and can connect to any vehicle on the market. Installing The Noggle is also a snap, as you can install it in less than 30 seconds with no tools required. Simply loop, secure, and turn!
The Noggle is a sure bet for parents interested in the health and safety of their children. It is a practical and affordable product with tremendous benefits!
With our crude Noggle design gaining attention from both friends and strangers, we found that there were very few options available to quickly regulate the temperature in the backseat. The cab of a car parked in the summer sun can reach upwards of 200 degrees Fahrenheit leaving a dangerous environment to place either your children or pets into. As a parent, I knew that this was a true problem that had to be taken seriously.

After working with many different designs, we eventually created the Noggle system that you see today. Our patented design is completely universal and will connect to any vehicle on the market today. The decorative cover is functional and allows you to connect The Noggle to any connection point you can find including, but not limited to, a headrest, car seat or even a seat belt!
During the design process, we understood the importance of testing our design in real world applications using materials that can withstand the elements. This is why the plastic dash plate, Noggle connection and vent screen all have a temperature rating of over 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Our First Prototype
Benefits of The Noggle:
The Noggle makes the back seat both comfortable and safe during summer rides. Children and pets can get cool down faster in the backseat which allows parents to focus on the road conditions while driving to their destination. After reading reviews from safety techs like "Car Seats For The Littles" Click To Read, we learned that parents also love the Noggle because it promotes safety for kids in car seats. Many states now mandate children under the age of 12 to ride in the backseat and for children under the age of 3 to have a rear facing car seat for safety. The Noggle encourages parents to follow state mandates while keeping their children comfortable and safe.
How it works:
Everything about the Noggle is universal. There are two different connection dash plates for the user to choose from; a rectangular vent plate or circular vent plate, depending on vehicles specifications. Two retractable zip ties are included to connect the dash plates and can be installed in less than 30 seconds. The patented Noggle head locks and unlocks into the connection dash plate with a simple twist. This allows the user to quickly connect and disconnect the Noggle when not in use. Connection loops are sewn into the covers and includes a velcro strap for hanging the Noggle, smashing the Noggle in the headrest, strapping the Noggle to a seat or holding the Noggle in your hand. The end of the Noggle where the air exits was designed with child safety in mind by including a safety screen. We engineered the Noggle to redirect the air from the front seat to anywhere in the vehicle. As a result of the design precess and quick disconnect, parents can easily regulate the airflow throughout the entire vehicle.
Materials & Specifications:
After three different versions of The Noggle, the material we now use a plastic with a temperature rating of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The upgrade in plastic durability proved to be crucial since cars were getting so incredibly hot, that the plastic in our first generation designs would actually begin to warp and bend. The Noggle comes is 3 sizes. For forward facing car seats, a 6 foot model. For rear facing car seats an 8 foot model. And for 3rd row seats and RVs, a 10 foot model.
