Nine times out of ten, when I try to lean my umbrella against a wall at a restaurant or a coffee shop it ends up on the floor. I usually gave up after a few attempts. This could be a thing of the past.
Cheol Woong Seo and Jae Hee Park solved this old problem by redesigning the handle. They add a non-slip silicon pad to the shorten curved handle. It is simple when you think about it that you wonder why it took that long to create one. Now, we have to wait until an umbrella manufacturer brings this concept to a store near you.
