UMBRETICK / umbrella

UMBRETICK
UMBRETICK

On a rainy afternoon, you are walking on a street by holding an umbrella on one hand and a bag another. What if you got a phone call from the office?
In this case, you may put the umbrella rod between your shoulder and neck to support it but it is very hard to support it because the rod is thin and slippery.

The rod of this umbrella is as thick as its handle and actually this umbrella has no independent handle. It is the handle where you hold. The locking mechanism of this umbrella when it is unfolded is safe as it is fastened by turning, and the unfolding width can be adjusted.
