Poles can get cold


Not talking about the north and south poles! I’m talking about the metal poles in buses and subways. I cringe at the idea of sitting on a toilet in the winter, imagine having to hold on to a stainless steel pole for support during a subway ride! *shudder*

Anyhow, the Latch is here to save you the trouble of having to deal with the fact that ‘winter’s coming’. The Latch is just a silicone sleeve that fits over the pole. Silicone feels great to touch, and also improves one’s grip. Its insulating properties make sure you never have to deal directly with cold metal. It also comes with a hooping point, to hang your bags, umbrellas, and other paraphernalia, because holding onto a pole in public transport can sometimes require both hands!
