Dangling Umbrella / Umbrella

Dangling Umbrella

In rainy day dirt sticks to umbrella easily, and it can be difficult to lean umbrellas against a wall. Also, they’re easily left behind if they’re out of sight. Dangling Umbrella is one that would be difficult to forget. The handle slides apart so that the cap can be slipped over the edge of a table or bar. When the cap is opened, it lights up with the words “Don’t forget.” Silicon on the underside of the cap helps it grip the surface, and there is a strong spring inside the stem.
