Carabiner Hacks

Hack #1: Multiple bag holder

Particularly true when grocery shopping for a family (or just shopping with 1 girlfriend), a carabiner is a force multiplier – allowing 1 hand to grip multiple bags while keeping the other hand free.

A Carabiner can hold multiple heavy bags comfortably (assuming you have the strength of course)

Hack #2: Bottle holder

Only applies to bottles with an internal through-hand grip (with no lobang). YMMV. This is a common hack for the sporty outdoorsy person with 2 hands and more items to carry than you can shake a stick at. Picture taken from AllExpress e-commerce site.

Note: If it has a ring/hole, it can clip onto your bag.

Hack #3: Hairband Organizer

For the woman (or simply long-haired), hairbands and ties are a fact of life. So is losing them. Unless you bundle them together with a carabiner. Also makes for a handy baby/pet toy – if you can live with baby drool/teeth marks on your hair ties.

Other stuff you can organize with the carabiner: clothes hangers, pendants, rings, study cards (requires a much bigger hole though)

Hack #4: (Beer) Bottle Opener

Need to open a bottle? A carabiner makes a ready bottle opener. Perfect for that after-climb drink. Remember: Don’t drink and climb. Courtesy of the CHOW youtube channel.
