In the past two weeks, we've seen two disturbing cases of bag snatching on our streets. But even in cafes, restaurants and bars it's still difficult to keep an eye on your handbag.
After having trouble finding a clean and safe place to leave her handbag in a pub overseas, Jen Nicoll decided to take matters into her own hands and create the Bagmate.
The Bagmate is a sturdy hook that's fixed underneath the table to hang your bag on - keeping it off the floor and conveniently close by.
So far, the Coffee Club at the Logan Hyperdome and Hogs Breath Café at Cleveland are both hooked on the idea.
Customers love the hooks because it keeps their handbags, nappy bags and even jackets safe and off the floor and in a convenient place.
Bagmates can be purchased online at www.hookit.net.au. Each hook costs six dollars fifty, with discounts available on larger orders. Hooks come with an installation kit and customer awareness brochures and stickers,and can either be screwed into the table or secured with an adhesive pad.
Portable bag hangers are now also on the market and can be taken where ever you go. For more information, log onto www.handbaghanger.com.au
