The majority rules?

We recently discovered a public bathroom stall with an interesting metal addition. Rather than replace the missing purse hook hardware on the back of the stall door, they actually replaced it with a plate! It took the same number of screws and labor to cover it that it would have taken to put another one up. Instead, women now have no place to hang their purses and shopping bags. Imagine how frustrating that is. Or how many times that stall is left in favor of another, all because a simple little convenience is missing.

Women make up half of the population, live longer, and frequent dining establishments in huge numbers. We visit museums more often than men, make up a larger portion of the audience at live performances such as the symphony and do most of the shopping. Yet in place after place, we’ve seen either no purse hook, a missing hook or in this case, a plate where a hook ought to be. A substantial number of bars and after-hours night spots also lack purse hooks under the bar. In these cases, women are literally left “holding the bag.”

Until there is a greater awareness on the part of the managers and owners of these organizations, we’ll be using Clipa handbag hangers. They’re sturdy, reliable and unlike vanishing hooks, they’re here to stay.

How ’bout you? Have you ever notified management about the need for hooks in their restrooms?

A Lifesaver at the Pool: Clipa for Your Bag

Pool decks can be wet and messy — not great for handbags and swim totes. Most purse hooks wouldn’t be up to the task of hanging a good sized purse, let alone a swim bag with a wet, heavy towel in it. And so many just won’t work on benches or rails. But of course, nothing else is a Clipa. Not only does it hold up to 45 lbs but patented Clipa will actually work on a variety benches, rails, stands, chaise lounge backs, tables, counters, shelves, pass through windows and many other spots. And because each one is made with meticulous care here in the USA, Clipa won’t tarnish, even in high humidity areas like swimming pools. This summer, bring cool to the pool with Clipa purse hangers.
