How To Use ItSee it in Action
IN THE CAR
Cuff one carabiner to the metal post of the headrest on an unoccupied seat. Cuff the other carabiner to the handle or strap of your bag to keep everything within reach and reduce accidental bag dump.
ON A SHOPPING CART
Cuff one carabiner to the frame of a shopping cart. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your bag. Alternatively, you can gently fold the pouch over the cart handle and cuff the straps of your bag to keep it within view and minimize theft.
ON A LUGGAGE TROLLEY
Cuff one carabiner to the strap of your bag and loop the other around the handlebars of a luggage trolley to secure your bag and prevent it from toppling or getting lost during your travels.
ON A BIKE
Cuff one carabiner to the frame of your bike basket. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your bag to ensure that your important items don’t take a journey of their own.
ON A CHAIR
Cuff one carabiner to the frame of your chair or through an opening. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your bag so that you can safely secure your bag and relax knowing it is close at hand.
ON A BULKY FRAME
Loop your bag handle around the bulky frame and securely cuff it with one carabiner. Use the second carabiner for other items such as a water canteen or anything else with a loop or opening.
ON A FENCE
Cuff one carabiner to the metal on a chain link fence. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your racket case, gym bag or purse to keep your belongings off the ground.
ON A STROLLER
Place your diaper bag or purse in the basket under the stroller. Cuff one carabiner to the lower basket frame. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your bag.
Note: Store heavier items in the lower basket. Do not hang items from the handlebars. Use great care to prevent weight imbalance or destabilization that could cause the stroller to tip over.
FOR CARRYING MULTIPLE BAGS
Cuff each carabiner to one or more shopping bag handles, using care to weight-balance your packages. Hold the pouch body in your hand or rest the pouch on your shoulder or forearm. Your bags will be easy to manage and lessen the possibility of handles digging into your fingers.
TO HOLD TAKEOUT BAGS
Cuff one carabiner to the metal post of the headrest on an unoccupied seat. Cuff the other carabiner to the handles of plastic or craft paper takeout food sacks. Note: Photo shows Handbag Handcuff pivoted on the post to display takeout bags on the rear of the passenger seat.
AS A YOKE
Cuff each carabiner to one or more shopping bag handles, using care to weight-balance your packages. Rest the pouch on your shoulder or forearm to free your hands for other activities.
ON A SCOOTER
Wind your bag strap around the handle of the scooter and secure with your carabiners on the side of either handle. Use heightened care and caution to determine if your bag is safely and securely connected and it does not adversely affect your balance. Cuff your bag to minimize the dangerous distraction of a shifting bag and grip both handles for a safer ride.
USING THE AUXILIARY STRAP
The handy auxiliary strap gives you even more options to connect multiple bags, bulky frames, and thick-handled bags. Each carabiner has a clearance of 16mm (just over 5/8") which should fit around most straps, headrest posts and shopping-cart frames. However, if you should encounter a thick-handled bag or bulky frame, don't force the carabiner to open beyond its tolerance. The auxiliary strap is designed for this very purpose.
ON A PET CARRIER
Cuff one carabiner to the metal headrest post on an unoccupied seat. Cuff the other carabiner to the handle of your pet carrier and slide the D ring on the auxiliary strap through the gate of that carabiner. Secure the pet carrier to stop it from sliding and to minimize distraction.
TO TRANSPORT BOTTLES
Cuff one carabiner to the metal headrest post on an unoccupied car seat. Thread the auxiliary strap through the handles of wine tote bags and soft coolers and then slide the D ring on the auxiliary strap through the gate of the other carabiner. Ensure that glass bottles don’t collide and your bubbly only explodes when the time is right.
HOOK UP TOYS
Cuff one carabiner to the metal headrest post on an unoccupied car seat. Thread the auxiliary strap through the handles of your child’s toys, lunch boxes or backpacks and slide the D ring on the auxiliary strap through the gate of the other carabiner. Hook up toys for easy access so these items do not slide around the back seat.
ON A POLE
Remove the auxiliary strap from its pouch and wind around a pole or bulky frame, then connect to one carabiner. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your bag on public transportation or whenever you need it for security in a snap.
CONNECTING THE CARABINERS TO EACH OTHER
Our patented carabiners open by applying gentle pressure on the gate. With this in mind, the two carabiners can be connected to each other by simply pressing the two gates to each other. Straps and handles can be secured in between the connected carabiners.
ON A GOLF CART
Place the strap of your bag or soft cooler against the seat arm or hand rail. Gently fold the pouch body around the frame and over the strap. Cuff the carabiners to each other and enjoy the sights.
ON A SUITCASE
Hold your bag strap in place on the suitcase handle. Slide the pouch body under the handle and strap. Gently fold the pouch and cuff the carabiners to each other. Another option is to cuff one carabiner to the telescopic handle of your suitcase. Cuff the other carabiner to the strap of your bag.
ON A MOPED
Place the pouch body under the handle of the rear rack. Gently fold the pouch body around its chrome frame and over the strap. Cuff the carabiners to each other for easy riding.
ON A BOAT
Thread the pouch body around the chrome or rope handrails and through the strap or handle of a bag or lightweight floatation device. Gently fold the pouch and cuff the carabiners to each other so your bag doesn’t sail away.
For your safety, Handbag Handcuff® should be used only with bags of modest weight, such as the weight of a typical woman's purse, to tether the bag to a fixed object. Of course, the heavier the bag and the greater the force applied to Handbag Handcuff®, or to any object to which it is fastened, the higher the likelihood that Handbag Handcuff® or the fixed object will not hold the bag in place. Handbag Handcuff® must never be used to tether a person or animal or for climbing or other recreational activities and should not be used by children. Before each use, the fastening mechanism should be checked to make certain it is functioning properly, and the portion of the strap to which the carabiner is attached should likewise be inspected for its integrity. For your safety prior to use in the car, please consult your automobile's owner’s manual for safety issues. Please adhere to a standard of reasonable care for all uses suggested here and for those not featured, whether they be in or out of the automobile. Each instance of contemplated use should be evaluated to determine if any risks are present and how they can be mitigated by the user. Handbag Handcuff® should not be used in any manner that could foreseeably result in harm to you, another user, or any person or animal.
