However, after many moons of use, the handles were starting to fray:
I dislike when one part wears out when the rest of the item still works fine:
So I decided to see if I could fix it. I looked through our many (i.e. two) types of industrial type tapes (duct and electrical) and settled on the electrical for a few reasons:
- It is strong and flexible
- It lays flat and smooth
- I had a lot of it
- It matched the color of my shoulder bag
This is me, happy to be able to smuggle a small child onto the plane in my bag again.
