Hello Craftsters and Guests:

I had a terrific idea about the Bag-Rack-tabs: Rather than make them as tubes, that are attached to the side, make them as pieces that can be Velcro(R)ed to the bag-racks. I haven't actually tried it yet, but it's a good idea. The tubes on the upper side, are a good idea to hold the bags up to be filled with your groceries BUT, they're not terribly easy or quick to attach. With the tabs being some longer, and Velcro (R) attachable, they would be easier to simply "fold onto" the bag racks.

My idea is that you'd make the tabs as a single layer, with the edges finished, then attach the "stiff" (hooky) side to the tabs in small squares.  Attach longer pieces of the soft Velcro to the bag. Then, rather than the Cashiers having to fiddle with the bag-rack-tabs, they could fold them onto the bag-racks quicker and not have to be so fiddle-y with them. The bag-rack-tabs are very useful ... but only if you're checking-out when there isn't a huge line-up behind you. (IE, during the dinner hour, or late at night.) During these "off-times" the Cashiers and  Baggers are a bit more patient and willing to "fiddle" with getting the bags onto the racks.

If someone knows what I'm talking about, and gives it a try, please post the results here. Thank you. (If no-one can quite figure out what I've said, I'll be attempting it later on and posting it.)

Thank you all Crafster's and Guests for your attention.

A.T. Morel
