Ring Umbrella

Ring shape handle umbrella

On a rainy day, our hands are not free due to umbrella. If mobile phone rings in the bag while putting up an umbrella, we have to do something only with one hand as we hold an umbrella with the other.

Unlike existing straight or hook shaped handles, user is free to use both hands as it allows user to put one hand into the handle. Thus, it is safer and more convenient than the existing umbrellas and the elderly and the infirm with weak grip are able to use umbrella by putting the umbrella in their arms instead of holding the handle.
