Hooking in to a back saver

IN THE spirit of innovation, regular tipster Dr Frank Zhu from Port Macquarie has actually patented this idea in the US, but sends in a ‘home made’ version for the benefit of his fellow GPs.

His invention is designed for people with back pain, to shift the weight of a bag from their spine to their hips. Bend a wire into a double hook, as illustrated, then clip the upper hook over a belt or the waist band of a pair of jeans.

The bag handle slips over the outer hook.
