Ronexa LLC
Irwin, Pennsylvania

The Little Anteater allows car wash operators to increase revenue by having consumers spend more time at pay vacuum machines.

What’s New/Best Seller • The Little Anteater.

Advantages/Features • The Little Anteater is a re-useable crevice tool that fits into the standard vacuum nozzle found at car wash vacuum islands. The simple to use device allows the user to get into the small spaces of a car’s interior in much the same way as the crevice attachment that comes with home vacuums. The consumer inserts the product into the nozzle, vacuums the interior’s small spaces, removes and takes the product home with them. The two-piece device stores in the glove box or center console easily. The tip of the anteater is separate from the body and was designed to be rotated 360 degrees without dislodging the tip or any reduction in suction. The product is vending machine compatible.
