$19.99 each? I could make a dozen for less than that. If I wanted one that is.

I don't know Rick. I was asking my self the same question as I have so many times.

Its not April first.
It can't be a appliance for the disabled because you need all your fingers to use it.
I'm bewildered.

I have a disabled 46 year old son with muscular coordination problems. He can pick up things and carry them, but has trouble determining the force necessary to avoid crushing things like 2 liter soda bottles, but he does much better when these things have handles. I'm going to buy a couple of these to see if they will help him. I'm quite certain that they will.

Thanks for the link, Herb.

Paul I sure could have used those years ago when I was stacking roofs to hang the cords and skilsaw on. might have saved a few wormdrives from early retirement.

I would make them out of BB plywood, but I bet the cost would be more to make than buying the webbing and making them your self. Might not be as strong either.

I have to agree with Herb. Yes, you could make them, but the cost of the materials and your time, if you would choose to add that, may not be cost effective. High impact, injection molded plastic has a tendency to be very strong, and deterioration resistant. The cost of the Velcro straps (not just strips of Velcro) are not cheap, either.

The problem I see is using them on larger plastic liquid containers. These can become very flimsy as the liquid (and the pressure inside) lessens. The straps may become loose and lose their grip on the container.

Still a pretty neat idea and open to a lot of uses.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget.

I agree if you were pouring a toxic liquid,bleach,ammonia, acid,etc. it might become unsafe, I had not thought of that.
Good catch, Bill, but to be expected of an old Safety Engineer.
