Brilliant! WorkForce HangAlls

2/11/2010:

[This week’s post series is “Hoboken411 Product Reviews,” which will feature one item each day that may be of general interest to the readers. Each product is already owned and purchased by Hoboken411.]

Useful, inexpensive, genius!

You can think of a thousand great uses for this WorkForce Jumbo Carabiner – which I bought at Home Depot in Jersey City a few weeks ago.

WorkForce HangAlls Jumbo Carabiner is the best thing ever

At only $2.99 apiece, I bought this padded jumbo carabiner specifically as an attachment for the leash when I walk Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar. My previous carabiner which I bought here in Hoboken was finally wearing out. It was a bit small for many applications. This new one is light years ahead! Since it’s so gargantuan, I can clip it to practically anything in Hoboken, which is great considering there aren’t too many places to tether your animal while you shop.

The padded handle is a great addition, and makes using it much more comfortable. I bought four of them – one for the dog leash, two for the glove box in the car (great for carrying many bags from Target, Walmart, etc.), and one for the toolbox for future use.

The cost to usefulness ratio for the Workforce HangAlls Jumbo Carabiner is practically un-matched. I recommend that all living adults have at least two or more of these in their possession.

You can thank me later!

It breaks my heart that I can’t take my dog in there anymore, however, it’s not sanitary! He’s a pig and he drools as soon as he sees food or knows there will be food soon. The coffee beans sitting on the floor? I don’t know, it’s probably a good thing dogs can’t go in there anymore.

P.S. Furey, my vet keeps mentioning you and your dog. What’s that all about!? Not once, but twice now! Hmmm. Either you have an admirer or Rocco does! I have seen Rocco, my money’s on him! haha

I went with your recommendation at the Animal Infirmary and told them you recommended her. My write up is on the thread on 411. I can’t compete with Rocco’s good looks. Or Oscar, for that matter. Who doesn’t love cute dogs?

Also dogs are allowed into Dames Coffee. They love Rocco.

I hear what the people say about the dog napping and I think it is a question of common sense. When my pooch is outside any store, I can normally see him from outside the window or door. I watch strangers go up and pet him.

And that’s life isn’t it? My point about how I live my life with my dog is my choice. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to. But for me, i’d like more businesses in town where I can latch my dog. Don’t use the latch if you don’t want to.

My mom used to use something similar to tether me to the jungle gym when I had too much chocolate.

pretty sure there are health codes that prohibit animals, except for service dogs, from going into places that serve food (by the letter of the law at least).

You should never tie your dog up while you go in a store. There was just a story on Yahoo News or MSNBC about a girl who tied her bulldog up in front of a restaurant while she “ran in” to pick up an order. In that 2 minutes, her dog vanished.

At the risk of upsetting a few posters, remember there are still dog fighting rings in NJ where thousands of dollars are bet on the winner. Sometimes a local fido who is tied up for 20 minutes in front of the local shop is dog napped and used in a “training” exercise for dog fighting. Usually your fido doesn’t last a minute and then is tossed into an incinerator or local trash can.

Do not tie your dog up anywhere or it could happen to your precious.

I go to Church Square Park with my dog to the dog run. Often I grab lunch at Park and Sixth. So, I should walk 6 blocks home on Newark, put him into his crate, walk back 6 blocks and get my lunch? That’s ridiculous and not realistic. Lots of other examples like that for dog owners who are out with their dogs and would like to grab something on their way back home.
