Aptly put by the designers, the Lizard Umbrella sheds its handle as a defensive mechanism against thieves. What this means is that you get to take the umbrella handle with you, when it needs to be deposited in a public place, like a restaurant’s umbrella stand. Without its handle, the umbrella appears to be broken and less desirable!
The tip of the umbrella stem is embossed with lines that slot only into the matching handle – much like how a key only fits into its corresponding lock. This prevents Lizard Umbrella users from mistaking someone else’s umbrella or their own.
