Fall’s Back with Backpacks

Fall is here and for many of us, that means backpacks. Not just for school, work or travel, backpacks are the comfortable way to be hands-free when you’re out and about. And in the age of Covid-19, that’s more important than ever. Thankfully, crisp autumn days may mean that the virus may not stay on surfaces as long, thanks to windy, cooler, wetter days. The virus can remain in the air for 3 hours and on stainless steel up to 3 days.

A Clipa bag hanger on your backpack loop or one of its straps makes it even easier to prevent contact with germs, viruses, dirt and bacteria on campus or at the office. It hangs most anywhere in seconds, including tables, auditorium desks and counters. Amp up your protection with hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol: according to the CDC, using them and washing hands often can help you stay healthy. And when you’re washing up, the Clipa can hang up to 33 lbs., in just a half an inch of space from sinks, stall walls even rails.

Just how important is it to keep your hands clean? A recent Prevention.com study found some surfaces had more germs than others, including: gas pumps (71%), mailbox handles (68%), escalator rails (43%), and ATM buttons (41%). With a change of seasons (and possibly your bag to a backpack), staying healthy is priority #1.

RV Camping with The Clipa

It’s true: RV rentals and sales are rising. If you’re thinking of getting on the road, here are a few ways the Clipa can come in handy throughout your trip:

  • At the RV pickup counter as well as when getting restaurant food to-go: hook the carry out bag to one of the handles in your RV to keep containers upright. Open either end to hang your bag from the grocery cart handle when at the market and from the counter when loading items onto the conveyor belt at checkout
  • The Clipa is also useful in bathrooms: works on stalls, doors and sinks at visitor’s stations, rest stops and at photo-worthy scenic overlooks while snapping pics
  • You can hang items like day bags, backpacks and pet leashes in the RV, too: it works on handles, ladders, counters even the cab’s console
  • Outside, the instant bag hanger is also great for picnic tables, hiking (hang your camera bag up), boating and swimming. You can even use it to hang lanterns and bags

Carrying and Using Clipa During Covid-19

Reducing contact with viruses, germs and bacteria when you’re going to the grocery store or picking up restaurant carry out is important. Wipes, sprays, masks, and hand sanitizers can all help and so can a Clipa bag hanger. (Clockwise from top left) Clipa opens automatically to hang bags or shopping baskets from strollers. One-handed operation makes it so fast and easy to use. If you store the Clipa on your bag’s strap or its D or O rings, it works in seconds.

Essential shopping might mean a trip to a public restroom. According to studies, the first stall typically has the fewest germs but if it’s missing that all-important coat hook, the Clipa can your bag from the top of the door, the wall, any rails, even the tissue paper holder and the seat cover dispenser.

If you’re going into the grocery store and don’t want to put your bag directly in the cart, you can hang it while you shop with the Clipa after wiping down the handle. Staying with your purse and cart is always a good idea and if you have an umbrella, you can hang it from the handle too while you’re shoppping.

Hang restaurant take out or your purse from your car’s passenger seat headrest so when you hit the brakes or go downhill, everything will stay in place for the trip home. It can easily hold up to 30 lbs yet won’t weigh you down: it’s just 1.6 oz. To see all 7 colors, including our limited edition copper rose gold, just click on the image or please visit www.clipa.us

Be More Stylish in 2020 with 2-in-1 Accessory

Is one of your resolutions to be a more conscious consumer, buying useful, long-lasting items that provide value in multiple ways? Since 2009, the Clipa bag hanger bracelet has been both a purse hook and a bangle bracelet that can be worn alone or stacked with bangles or charm bracelets. This 2-in-1 feature is popular because you always know where your purse hook is– on your wrist–and you can hang your bag in seconds virtually anywhere.

Many of our styles use a “forever finish”, a Physical Vapor Deposition or PVD finish usually found in the jewelry industry. We use it because of its incredibly durable characteristics—important since the Clipa has been tested to last for 10 years of daily use 3-4 times a day—and holds up to 33 lbs.

But the Clipa is much more than functional jewelry. It’s been thoughtfully designed to extend the life of your bag or backpack by preventing contact with germs, water and dirt. Store it on your bag’s strap, hook it to your purse’s D or O rings or wear it on your arm. Simple and elegant, it works in dozens of places in less than a half an inch of space.
