Magic Handle / Umbrella

Magic Handle
Magic Handle

In Taiwan, numerous people carry folding umbrellas on rainy days. We can see numerous umbrellas scattered on building entrance everywhere. It is disorder with impedance to people’s walking. Some folding umbrellas are designed with excessively short handles to cause inconvenience of application.
Magic Handle is installed with an extending handle for umbrellas available for users to hold it comfortably. The structure of a middle joint is rotatable by 180°. The uppermost level is hidden with a sucker available to sticking onto walls. Furthermore, the rain water on umbrellas can be used for watering.
