The Windham, New Hampshire police department has a holiday shopping safety tip that you won’t want to miss!
Women all over America are now carrying carabiners on their purse for this one incredible reason. The Windham, New Hampshire Police Department shared a post on Facebook urging women to clip carabiners to their purses when they go shopping. You can use the caribiner to clip your purse to your shopping cart when you go to the store. Alternatively, you can also use the child safety straps many carts have as a safety clip as well.
Here is the tip provided by the Windham, New Hampshire Police Department’s Facebook page:
A shopping safety tip for women. When using a shopping cart as you browse through the store, keep your purse zipped or closed and secure it to the cart by clipping the child safety belt through the strap(s). This will help in preventing someone from taking advantage of your distraction and running off with the purse. For those carts that don’t have the child strap, keep an inexpensive carabiner clip attached to your purse strap. Simply clip the carabiner to the cart and your purse is more secure. HAPPY SHOPPING!
