The Unstrap

16 Votes

Rate this product

The Unstrap is a clear, transparent plastic strap that you can attach to virtually any purse or handbag. When you use this strap instead of a bulkier colored one, your purse will be less visible to possible purse snatchers. Plus, if you're wearing a stylish outfit, people will be able to see that more clearly. The length of this fairly thin yet durable strap can be adjusted, so you'll be able to wear your purse up high near one shoulder or down low.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of The Unstrap is $19.99 plus $4.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second The Unstrap at the discounted price of only $4.95 for a total price of $29.89. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: buyunstrap.com

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Remove Purse's Original Strap

    To start using your Unstrap with any purse, remove the original strap that came attached to the purse and set it aside.

  2. Add The Unstrap

    Next, add The Unstrap in the place where the original strap used to be. With most purses, this should only take you a few minutes, tops.

  3. Adjust Unstrap

    Finally, adjust The Unstrap to make it shorter or longer based on how you want to wear the purse. If you want to wear it up on your shoulder or around your waist, belt-style, your Unstrap should be fairly short. On the other hand, if you want your purse dangling around your hip area, you should make the strap longer. In order to adjust it, use the buckle as you would when adjusting a bra strap.

Features

  • Discreet

    Dark, bulky purse straps can make the coolest outfit look less fashionable by taking attention away from your bottom and top, but you won't have this problem when you're using The Unstrap. Its clear shade will make it fairly inconspicuous, especially in comparison to brighter clothing.

  • Adjustable

    You can adjust this strap to be as short as 26 inches or as long as 51.5 inches, based on what you're wearing and where you want your purse to rest against your body. Once you adjust its length, it may seem as if you've got an entirely new purse, even if you're just wearing the same one at a different angle.

  • Durable

    The material used to make each of these straps is lightweight, so your strap won't feel like a knotted rope on your shoulder, but it's also durable. It's actually more difficult to cut through than the standard leather or cloth straps found on most handbags, so it'll be unlikely to break, even if you attach it to a large, heavy handbag.

  • Won't Snag Clothing

    The Unstrap's material is also smooth, which means that it'll be unlikely to get caught in your clothing as you move and cause a snag in any garment's fabric.

  • Rolls Up

    When you're not using this strap, you'll be able to roll it up and place it in the included semi-transparent storage pouch. Furthermore, unless the next purse you plan on using it with is tiny, you'll be able to store both the strap and pouch in there until the strap's needed.

Positive Points

  • Can Be Casual or Dressy

    This purse strap will look good with casual clothing like tees and jeans, but it'll look just as attractive with dressier outfits such as evening gowns and business suits. As a result, you'll be able to wear it almost anywhere, along with the purse you've chosen to go with any given outfit.

  • Works With Various Purses

    The Unstrap can be attached properly to almost all purses, clutches and handbags, regardless of their shape or size or what you're carrying inside them. If you use it with a tiny clutch, you'll have a very light load, but this strap is also durable enough to support a larger handbag full of office supplies, makeup or children's toys.

  • No Sewing Required

    To attach this clear strap to your purse of choice, you'll never have to do any sewing. Instead, you'll simply need to use the silver clips that you'll find on each end. You may be able to attach the strap in just a few seconds, and if you ever want to put the old strap back on, you'll be able to take this one off quickly, too.

  • Helps You Avoid Theft

    When they're looking to mug someone, potential purse thieves will be scouring any public area for the most visible purses and bags. If you choose to use The Unstrap instead of a thicker strap in a solid shade, they may not immediately realize you're wearing a purse, so they may decide not to bother you.

Negative Points

  • May Need to Be Wiped

    Due to the clear shade of this strap, it may show dirt easily, especially if you often carry a purse while walking outside. That means you'll probably have to wipe it off on a regular basis since the material used to create it tends not to be washing-machine friendly.

  • Designed Mainly For Women

    Although a small percentage of men carry purses, most don't, so that makes this strap an accessory that'll mainly be useful to women. To include men, it would be helpful if a shorter, thicker strap for a briefcase or two clear straps that one could use on a backpack could be introduced. Of course, women could also use these additional options with their backpacks and briefcases.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Wear Around Waist

    If you often experience shoulder pain while carrying a purse, you may want to use your Unstrap as a belt around your waist instead. Not only is this fashionable, it'll also keep your purse ready at hand, so you can open it quickly whenever you need something from inside. Just make sure that you tighten the strap enough that it won't slide down your hips while you're moving around, especially if you'll be hitting a dance floor.

  2. Add Instant Length

    Tiny purses are cute, but they often come with a strap that's so short it won't go over your head, forcing you to carry the purse precariously over just one shoulder or in one hand. However, if you get rid of that short strap and add your Unstrap to a tiny handbag instead, you'll be able to make your strap lengthier almost instantly. Then you'll be able to extend the strap across your body and lessen the risk of your purse dropping to the floor or ground.

  3. Clip to Existing Straps

    Most purses have removable straps these days, but if you happen to encounter one that has short straps that can't be removed, you'll be able to use your Unstrap with it anyway. To do so, just clip The Unstrap's two clips to the existing straps, adjust the strap as usual, and be on your way. People who have fashion in mind may not consider this a desirable option, but people who have functionality in mind probably will.

Save Money

Instead of replacing the strap on each purse you have each time one starts to look old and ratty, you can make the choice to use The Unstrap with all your purses. Given that this strap is so durable, you likely won't need a replacement for years, if ever.

I Would Recommend Buying it

I was given an Unstrap by a friend, I put it to the test and found it is very functional and fashionable. I was so impressed that I ending up ordering another one. I like that it converts to a waist strap quickly.

Love my Unstrap!

Thank you, Unstrap, for such a great multi use accessory all my purse carrying challenges. It is the discreet and convenient answer to carrying a "barely there" purse to dinner dates, concerts, night clubs and vacations. Very happy with my Unstrap. Thank you.

Unstrap

I think the idea of having this strap to deter theft while traveling is a great idea. It's so much easier to put all your belongings in one purse while on vacation and your looking around through shops etc and the fact that it's hard to get through and hard to see gets my vote.

I Recommend Buying This Product

I love this product. I can use it on any of my purses that have a removable strap, evening purses, larger tote purses, beach bags and even convert the strap to a hip strap verses a shoulder strap. I love that when I wear my purse as a cross body purse the strap does not impede my clothing style. This product is so versatile and durable. I absolutely love my Unstrap and I know you will too.
