laswsuit waiting to happen.

Anything that uses suction cups will lose the grip on the surface they are attached to.

When that happens, the poor sucker (probably an elderly person) will end up on his back, on the floor, with a broken bone, clutching that thing.

I can never trust those commercials. Hey at least they're gaurenteed.


I wonder how they grip onto the surface anyway? :?

"now I feel so safe...."

"Use it anywhere you need temporary assistance." Clearly it's not meant to be a permanent solution.

And "satisfaction" is what's guaranteed. Not that it's never going to fall off. If it's used to the specification of the manual, then you should be satisfied.

Possible argument from dumbass lawsuit because somebody thought the suction would last forever...

This truly is a lifestyle revolution. Finally, I have a product to add safety and satisfaction to my shower experience.

Now all my bathroom hygiene related fears and desires have been satisfied.

I use shampoo with patented ceramide formula to give volume and strength.

Separate conditioner to add sheen.

Toothpaste with oxifizz© crystals to give my teeth pizazz!

Mouthwash with doxyhydrocloride action, to give my breath the freshness that only comes with a holocaust of germs.

God bless you America

I've seen this one on very late at night. It's really bad. I love the dramatic back breaking action, though.

Oh, you just know some idiot is going to try suing when they hurt themselves after, I dunno, using those things as hand-holds to hang upside-down while they're painting something. After all, they weren't told that wasn't possible in the commercial, were they? ;)
