How to Better Grip my Dog Waste Bag to my Pooper Scooper

A customer challenged us with resolving the issue that the bag loosens in the o-cinch ring when she is scooping. For those of you who experience the same issue, below is a quick and easy fix that helps keep the bag in place.

  1. Get yourself a strip of sticky Velcro. The prickly side (male side)
  2. Cut 3 pieces of sticky, prickly side, Velcro into 1.75″ X 3/8″
  3. Starting at the top of the o-cinch ring, slip a piece through the o-cinch hole half way until you get an even amount of Velcro on the front and back side of the o-cinch ring.
  4. Bend the Velcro and align the ends of the Velcro to the edge of the ring. Press to stick.
  5. Repeat with two more pieces on each of the bottom corners.

It should look like the photos below.

  • Adding the Velcro reduces the size of the hole giving more friction to the bag when pulling through.
  • The prickly side of the Velcro helps grab the plastic making it harder for the bag to “just slip off”.

We are working on a more permanent solution but this is an immediate fix we wanted to share.
