Umbrella theives are the lowest form of life

Is there anything worse than umbrella theft? You may not be aware of it, but umbrella theft accounts for nearly 80% of all theft in the U.S. Even though I just made that figure up, it still sucks to have your umbrella stolen and have to get soaked on the way home.

The Shacklie can help. It’s basically a lock or handcuff on the handle of the umbrella. This way you can secure your umbrella while it’s not in use. Maybe even catch a criminal and escort him to the police.

Umbrella theft is a major issue. I’d say after healthcare reform, the financial crisis, and the war, that umbrella thievery has to be one of Obama’s top priorities. I know it’s a major issue every time it rains. The Shacklie is the answer we have all been looking for. It simply turns the curved handle of the umbrella into a lock so you can secure your umbrella while it’s not in use.

It’s just a concept at the moment, but it makes sense. Rain is bad for the hair, so umbrellas must be a top priority.
