What do you expect for a summer day in Dallas? I had to get the video done and time was of the essence. If I had to wait for leaves to fall, the video wouldn't have been shot until January or February of the following year. I am glad it was good for a few laughs for you though. Oh, I still have the leaves in a bag in my garage just waiting for the next video to be cut (just kidding). Take care.

Wouldn't a bungi cord do the same thing? All you are trying to do is keep the bag around the can.

What a dummy. You could go to Ashville to demo as a business expense.

Thanks for the link. It all makes more sense (how it works) now.

That's just part of it. It also goes INSIDE the can to hold the bag against the side (which is the "top" once you lay it on it's side), holding the bag "open".
A bungee can't do that.

It's essentially a huge, plastic paper clip.

How about a huge (11") metal one for $14.95?

That's neat that you made that inference, because that's pretty much how it works. It keeps the liner and wall of the receptacle together. No separation means that the liner stays in place. Thanks for adding that important point.

That's an actual clip? Wow! (I can see it's a real product, but just Wow!) Seriously though, I tried to design the Slap-on attachment so that it could be easily engaged and disengaged from the receptacle.
