I love these bands to hold plastic bags in place, and this one came with a bonus holder so that the band won’t fall to the floor when you change bags.

Checking out at the hardware store I noticed a package of these elastic loops. Our most recent one had worn out, so I picked up the package. Then I saw that it had not only two bands, but one of them had a small ring attached, with a sticky back. You peel the backing and stick the holder to the side of your trash can and then the band won’t be falling down if you move things around or replace the bag.

This package had two rings. The one that has the holder attached is for large cans (20-32 gallon), and there is also a smaller band that is about 28 inches in circumference (5-15 gallon cans).

Both bands are made like heavy pony tail holders, over 1/8 inch diameter, with thread wrapped around an elastic core, and secured with a metal ferrule.

I know this is a very small item, but I was impressed. I’ve previously purchased some of these that weren’t much more than large rubber bands. And I’ve certainly never had one with a bracket to hold it in place. When I can end one small frustration for a couple of bucks I am very happy!
