Unique features & benefits:

Approximately 4 inches long, The Grip-N-Carry Handle is a 360 degree rigid plastic tube that can be opened to insert bag straps into its hollow center and then closed, forming a functional handle.

This reusable detachable plastic handle enables individuals to comfortably grip and hand-carry a wide variety of cumbersome items such as plastic shopping bags, tied boxes, strapped bags, and luggage. The Grip-N-Carry Handle prevents pain caused by ropes, straps and plastic bags cutting into the palm of the hands or fingers.

It's shape is small and light, making it easy to carry anywhere in a pocket, purse, or fanny bag. Ideal for consumer shopping trips as well as for industrial uses, the Grip-N-Carry Handle helps save labor time because individuals can carry more bags or packages per trip, especially utilizing one in each hand. Whether going to and from the car, up and down staircases, or during walking trips, the load self balances since the straps can slide through the hollow center as needed, making the load seem easier to carry. In a vehicle, the Grip-N-Carry Handle helps keep multiple shopping bags upright and together so that items don't fall out during the drive.

Retailing for just over a dollar, anyone can easily afford it. Seventy-nine percent of consumers surveyed stated that they would pay at least $1 for the Grip-N-Carry Handle.

The Grip-N-Carry Handle was the Best of Show winner at the 1996 Invention Convention® trade show in Pasadena, California.
