Can you imagine carrying your suitcase on your waist and having your hands free?

load the suitcases at the airport it was never an easy task. With the popularization of cell phones, everything got even worse. We need hands free to use the internet and carry bags.

Therefore, Robert Lian, an American airline pilot, had an idea while at the airport. He created an accessory that connects the suitcase to the passenger’s waist through a cable. It’s nothing more than a tail that leaves your hands free and the suitcase stuck on you.

The 22cm plastic connects the extended handle of the suitcase to your waist, preferably to your belt.

According to the creator of the invention, the utensil was made for travelers who need to walk a lot to the boarding gates at airports.

One of the problems of “My Hitch” is that he can cause passengers’ pants to fall off. Therefore, the ideal is to attach it to a belt. According to Lian, if someone tries to steal your bag, you will feel it, but he recommends also using the novelty on your side so you can look at it from time to time.

Also according to him, there are no limits to use “My Hitch”: “I walked about 4km at the Miami airport to demonstrate my product and I only stopped because I was hungry”, he reports in his official site. Robert also claims that the product has been tested on people who measure between 1.50m and 1.80m.

The process for drop the luggage is fast and lasts about three seconds. For Lian, it’s okay to use it in crowded airports because people tend to walk in the same direction. However, he speaks to avoid in very chaotic places, like JFK, in New York.
