    A North Texas man has invented a device that could prevent hail from damaging vehicles.

    It’s called the Hail Protector. It creates a giant bubble around vehicles.

    "It cushions the impact and then the hailstone falls off," inventor Mike Siciliano said.

    Siciliano says he came up with the idea seven years ago because of a lack of products on the market to protect vehicles from hailstones.

    In three years, he says he’s sold about 1,000 Hail Protectors but says business has picked up since the recent hail storms in north Texas.

    "Business has been popping for us like crazy. We can't keep product in stock," he said.

    He says device is designed to take a beating and can withstand even the most severe hail storms.

    The price ranges from $350 to $450 dollars depending on car size.
