Gripole .....The Fantastic, Elastic, Sidekick!

     Have you seen Gripole? This little gadget is so simple and great. It is two high powered neodymium magnetic beads joined by an extremely strong, elastic cord.

     Gripole sent me a set of 6 multicolored gripoles to try out. I admit when I opened it up I thought well simple, but what will they do that is so great? But I tried them out and found some great uses for these handy little things.

     First, I used one in the bathroom next to my sink to hold a towel. Jayden pulled the hand towel rack out of the wall a while back and it has not been fixed. I have been missing a towel there so I thought I would see if this little gadget will help. I just took a hand towel and wrapped a gripole around it and stuck it to the side of my medicine cabinet mirror. It works GREAT! I can dry my hands, my face, and more. It doesn't fall off and it take a real good pull to get it off. I love it.

     Next, I decided to see about how it can help in the kitchen. I have all my pot holders in a small drawer next to the stove, but sometimes it is frustrating to get one out since the drawer is small and full. So I used a gripole to attach a pot holder to the side of the refrigerator, which is on the other side of the stove. It holds great and is easy access when I need it. Also since the magnets stick to each other I can pull it down, use it, and put it back without the gripole falling off.

     These things really are handy. There are so many uses for them. I used to go to the gym everyday (I know I should still, but I don't) and I would hate just laying my towel down anywhere. The gym is a dirty place! What a great way to have your towel off the ground and in reach, just poke a small hole for the gripole or wrap one around a towel and stick to the side of the equipment your using.

     There are so many more uses for the Gripole, check out this video:

     I am looking for some more fun ways to use the gripole around my house.  Maybe there is a way I can use them to organize Jayden's toys or maybe some of the USB cords.  I really like these little gadgets.  They work great.  The only thing is that when I pull them apart the plastic cover seems to pull and almost break.  But the good news is that Gripole is already working on this and any new Gripoles that come out now will have a stronger cover and will not have this issue.  Also, sometimes when I am pulling them apart they are so strong it takes a little extra effort to get them apart.  They are really strong.
