Role in episode
Sandy invents this tracker after SpongeBob goes missing and she, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Patrick try to find him. Squidward, not wanting SpongeBob to come back, purposely destroys the device with a hammer. He then claims that he dropped it, but nobody buys his blatant lie.
This is Sandy's second invention destroyed in the episode, the first being her robot, which was accidentally destroyed by SpongeBob.
