Handy Camel is About to Wrap Up a Successful Initial Year

Handy Camel announced today that it is extremely pleased with the progress its heavy duty and multi-purpose bag clip has achieved in its first year on the market.  Besides being awarded the Bronze Award for New Products and a Retailers’ Choice Award at the 2013 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas when it was released into the marketplace, the product also won awards at Superzoo in July and a Fosters Distribution 1st place in the New Item Expo. “We were blown away by receiving so many awards in the first year we were out on the market,” Tom Gray, owner said.

The Handy Camel is a 17-inch bag clip with a specially designed hinge closure system that makes it capable of sealing, carrying and making it easy to pour contents from large, heavy bags. A built-in handle makes it easy to carry awkward bags with the Handy Camel. Using it can help protect the back by promoting safe lifting posture, and plastic bags are protected from stretching and tearing.

Ideal for indoor or outdoor use, the Handy Camel is a must-have tool for gardeners, tailgate parties, pet owners, DIY weekend warriors, bird enthusiasts, and the average homeowner. The Handy Camel can eliminate the hassle of carrying and pouring dog and cat food, birdseed, garden soil, fertilizer, grass seed, charcoal, sand, and all other bagged, bulk items. The Handy Camel has many farm uses as well. Bags of corn, horse feed, protein pellets, chicken feed, seeds and other products can be sealed to prevent spillage in the back of a truck or between pens, and to keep mice out when stored.

The Handy Camel is extremely proud to be manufactured in Kansas City, Missouri as well.   It brings the company great pleasure to be providing work for so many local businesses.  “We also employ a sheltered workshop in Kansas City to install our stickers and package the product.  We love providing jobs to people who may have a hard time finding suitable work for them,” owner Tom Gray said.  Another cause close to their heart is the local animal shelter Wayside Waifs.  The Handy Camel donated a clip for every new adoption at the shelters annual open house, giving away over 70 units! 

The Handy Camel has an MSRP of $14.95. For more information visit
