The manufacturer calls it the Quik Fix Zipper but they obviously don't pay a copywriter to create dumb puns. So...it's the Zip-a-dee-doo-dad, a set of (3) replacement zipper tabs/sliders in graduated sizes (#3, #5, and #7) that come apart so you can slip then onto a zipper and tighten them with a little thumbscrew. Handy for busted jackets and sleeping bags. Even handier for pants. Removeable and re-usable.
We’re fascinated by this thing. It’s a collapsible Red-Riding-Hoodish dispan/basket for your sink and beyond, with solid gray plastic rim, base and folding picnic-basket style handles, plus silicone sides in fashionable chartreuse. Measures 15" x 11" x 5-5/8" when open but collapses down to just 1-1/2” high for storage. Could also be a very nostalgic shopping basket, dandy for collecting garden vegetables. Hose-off-able and pretty much niftiness itself. Holds water like a champ and is great for camping.
So why can't you ever find one? Put a stop to that with this clear plastic storage box with (100) steel safety pins: (50) at 1-1/8"; (25) at 1-1/4"; and (25) at 1-1/2". Your grandmother would be proud of you.
For when you just can't drag yours around anymore? No, for out-of-sight cigarette butt and ash disposal. This mini-bucket, sans handle, is a 3-1/4" dia x 3-7/8" tall black-composition ashtray that can sit on a desk or table, or fit neatly into a car's cup holder. Its removable lid has (3) slots to hold lit cigarettes and a small, cigarette-diameter hole so the butts slide out of sight and go out for lack of oxygen. Cuts down ambient dead-butt odors, too.
Don't look back in anger, give everybody a mirror and let them look for themselves. You get a pack of (10) 2 1/2" x 1-7/8" hand mirrors in really thin little white plastic snap-shut cases. Front says "Check your Smile--Colgate" but at these prices, so what?
You say you're having trouble twisting off those twist-off bottle caps? You'll shout "Eureka!," or at least "Beer!," when you stick your neck into this spring-loaded bottle-cap remover. Measures an easy-to-grip 3-3/8" tall x approx 2" ID mouth and one good turn opens your beverage. We'll pick red, black or blue.
These official Circus Circus® Hotel/Casino painters' hats are in neon pink and white with the logo on the front and the Circus Circus seal on top, complete with the clown above the elephant and lion rampant. Guaranteed to look stunning with any outfit, casual or formal. (The more formal the outfit, the more stunned they'll be!) Adjustable headband to fit all noggins.
Plastic bookmarks, each about 2" sq. The center and outer rim are separated: slide it over a page so the center is on one side and the rim is on the other to hold your place. The centers have a variety of (mostly) sports logos, but some have illuminated letters from medieval manuscripts. Snap them off a strip of (6) identical (the illuminated letters are all eg: "B" but the illumination is different for each one). We'll give you (6) strips, at least (3) different.
It's just a clear-acrylic letter opener, but it has (5) functions. There is a 5/8" dia 4X magnifying lens, and a 2-1/2" x 1/2" magnifying bar that is 1.5X. Add in the ruler that measures up to 3" and up to 7cm. Plus the 7-3/4" long paper knife. All in one tool. All at your fingertips every time you open the mail. All for a pittance.
