A commercial airline pilot who got fed up with lugging his bags around airports has invented a simple device to help people tow their suitcase hands-free. Robert Lian's 'My Hitch' is an 8.5in long device with a hook at each end - one for tucking into someone's waistband and the other under a suitcase handle.
The 53-year-old, from Miami Beach, USA, worked for Miami Air and says walking around larger airports are now as long as a mile and thought there must be an easier way. He pointed out how airline passengers often have mobile phones in one hand and drinks in the other, making it very difficult to pull luggage as well. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
