Public spaces like airports, grocery stores, and restaurants rarely have a good place to set down your bag, and if they do, it's probably not very clean. But with a Clipa2 bag hanger, you'll be able to hang your bag or coat off of any table or chair, instead of putting it on the dirty floor.
How it Works
The Clipa2 looks like a simple metal ring, but it's actually a coat hook that you bring with you everywhere. It features a spring-loaded hinge in the middle, rubber feet on the ends, and once you open it up, you'll be able to set one end on any raised surface, and hang something off the bottom. The makeshift hook can hold over 30 pounds, so you can use it to hang your purse off a shopping cart, your winter coat off a table at the airport restaurant, or your backpack off of your luggage handle. When you're done, just let the ring snap shut around your bag strap, and you'll be sure to have it the next time you need it.
The whole process takes less time than it would take you to drape a bag over the back of a chair, and is a lot more secure as well. And at only $16 each in a variety of colors, you can probably afford to get one for all of the bags you regularly carry.
