I think I found the solution for "handbag straps slipping off shoulder"

I have been on a mission it seems like forever.  I can't keep handbags straps on my shoulder.  I never buy 2-handled handbags and never those with rounded handles.  I do love cross-body bags for the convenience of being hands free.  But......I do buy single handle bags occasionally but always have a problem of keeping them on my shoulder.  I think (hope) I have the solution to my problem.

I just received some non-slip tape from egrips.com.  Before I purchased this item I emailed them and asked if they thought this would work on handbag straps.  He asnwered back promptly and told me many people buy this product for this purpose.  I just placed a piece on a KVC single handle bag that is quite slippery if you know what I mean.

I am going to test it for a few days and I will let you all know if it really does work.  I don't believe this would work on rolled straps.

Let us know.  I don't buy double handle bags for the same reason!

Go Steelers!

Nice idea- I love double handle bags- so I can get into it without having to take it off my shoulder. (pull just one handle down-leave the other on shoulder)  let us know!

It should work.  Similar products have been is medical supply catalogues for years for those of us with limiting grasping ability.  I set my alarm on it so it won't move, wrap it around control rods on mini-blinds so I can grasp them, etc.
