The VuSee was created by a dad who was trying to solve a few problems regarding the placement of their baby monitor. Not wanting to set the monitor on the crib due to the strangulation risks & visibility issues, he found a safe & non-permanent solution that allows for a clear view of the entire crib.
It's a very simple, but effective design - the angled shelf is attached to the wall using 3M Command Strips & works with any baby monitor. All you need is some rubbing alcohol to install:
