    how about a $1.50 bungee cord - wrapped around the entire barrel - instead of "slapon".... "hookAround"

    sorry, I couldn't help myself

    You must have stolen the idea from the guy that posted the same thing on the other thread.

    I think your product might interest the homeowner and maybe a few LCO's but it's not what most companies in this industry would use. I know that's not what you wanted to hear but it is an honest opinion.

    I respect everyone's opinion, and opinions can vary depending on how certain LCO's may do business. What may not seem a tool that can be of benefit to you, may be of benefit to others. Based on the feedback on the thread where most of the discussion has taken place, http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=386079, there seems to be a fair amount of interest from the LCO's. Actually, some that did not initially see the benefit have come around to where they now see how they may use the product in their work environment and benefit from it. Thanks for your imput.

    actually... I got that idea from the wife, that is how she keeps the Kitchen trash bags in place. I didn't know what you meant referring to the "other" thread, so I browsed thru it. To get around the bag not fully expanding because air is trapped in by the bungee cord.... simple only capture the top third of the bag with the cord.


    I didn't mean to come accross as mocking your product, I hope you do well with sales.

    Well, if you are interested, I have posted some arguments on the other thread, http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=386079, why using a bungee cord does not work as well for receptacles to bag leaves. Most of that discussion takes place with the first three pages of the thread. Thanks, Eric

    bungee cord works on round and square containers, also don't catch entire bag with cord, only catch 1/3 of it.... anyways, whatever works... works
