It is very simple and at the same time extremely practical. When fastened it becomes an invaluable tool in lifting bicycles especially up stairs and such. This is the creation of Walnut Studio’s Geoffrey and Valerie Franklin and will most probably come in three colors and the option of inscribing names or initials on the leather. And here is a fun fact for you: it took only $3,500 to produce 14,900 of those.

Rip Cord

Rip Cord

This is a minor yet essential improvement upon the usual roll of packaging tape. It has a tiny string running through the center of the tape. You can later pull on the string to cut the tape in half. This turns the otherwise tedious task of opening a box into a simple movement with a single gesture. You will no longer need to look for the scissors or the party knife which have a tendency to disappear every time you are moving stuff. The string is easy to locate and lift and literally does the job for you.
