RetraStrap has won the prestigious Gold Merit Award from INPEX in 2016 for a retractable strap which travelers can hook to their luggage and then wear the other end around their shoulder to keep both the hands free for other chores. No more neck and shoulder pain while traveling with wheeled carry-on bags.
“Being a frequent traveler I know the hassles of traveling with wheeled carry-on bags. Constant pulling of your carry-on in the same twisted posture throughout the trip gets really taxing on arm, shoulder and neck muscles. Moreover, it keeps your hands occupied which makes things inconvenient when you have to carry your coffee or talk over the phone or do any other chore with your hands. But you can finally bid adieu to all such hassles from now on. Our RetraStrap is meticulously designed to relieve you from the physical stress and other inconveniences you face while pulling the carry-on wheeled luggage. Put simply, we ensure you the much-awaited ‘hands-free’ travel with our revolutionary retractable strap. We also assure a safe way of traveling with your carry-on wheeled luggage when you are armed with our retractable strap,” said Omar Abass, the inventor behind RetraStrap.
It’s Omar’s own painful experiences with traveling with wheeled carry-on bags that inspired him to brainstorm about an appropriate solution – and thus RetraStrap was born.
