Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small thing, big difference The smallest changes can make such a difference! I've been using one band repeatedly for the last month (going through 2 trash bags a week.) Thus, I feel these bands are a great deal for the cost. My Husband thought it was an odd purchase of mine, but is thankful that the trash bag doesn't fall in the can anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Dandy Finally, something so easy to put on the outside of the trash bag to keep it from falling inside the can and causing a mess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT what I expected My bad. I didn't read the entire description. I was looking for one of those round rubber tube bands. This was a package of large rubber bands. I can get those anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Oh yeah you can Bandz" Highly-stretchable bands for the small,, medium, large waste cans(up to 32 gallon) Holding bags in place. More gripping, less ripping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Keeps the bag where it belongs. Makes my husband happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i found these to work like extra large rubber bands. it works (obviously) best for the trash bags that must be tied shut. I use one band in the kitchen since my trash bags are not long enough and will sometimes sink into the trash can as it fills up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without them I have used these can bands for years. I can only find them at Container Store. They do a great job of keeping the bag from slipping down into the trash can. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great to use w/ cheap trash bags These are great! Without them, those cheap extremely thin trash bags are useless! No more trash bag falling down in the can & having to dig it out. The only thing is that you have to be careful not to throw the band away by accident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE! These are the perfect solution for my trash bags that are constantly slipping down once I get something heavy in the trash. I was using tape before, which didn't work that well. Now my trash bag never slips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These_Need Bigger Ones I absolutely love these. You don't have to go and buy the pricey garbage bags with the band in the bag. I only wish they came in bigger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great item! I'm so glad I stumbled across this item. Before I purchaed this product, I was constantly struggling with the trash bag in my trash can falling into the can. This became extremely annoying when I was trying to do yard work by myself. With only two hands it was hard to hold the trash bag on the can while filling it with debris at the same time - not anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I am really glad that I found this product. I had a problem with my trash bags falling into the trash can on my tall kitchen plastic trash bin. These keep the bag up very well so I don't have to take those items that fell down between the trash bag and the can and put them in the trash on trash day. Yah! One less hassle in my life. Now if I could just work magic on my teenager.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit For All Cans These are great when you forget to buy the garbage bags with the strechable top. They have a million uses, and don't seem to dry out like cheaper bands.
Date published: 2012-02-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, yeah . . . Good Stuff! So good, this is my second order! They are perfect for their intended use (holding trash bags in place on my kitchen garbage can), but you'll find yourself grabbing them to secure other things, too (music, overstuffed lidded boxes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartest Invention Ever Created Fabulous. Perfect for all sizes of cans and keeps even heavy kitchen garbage bags up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for so many things I love these can bandz because they are so versatile. Not only are they great for keeping the trash bags in place but you can use them for other things too. Most recently I used them to keep music in a choir folder for over 100 people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful. Not able to find rubber bands of this size in the retail market.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked the Band-It Outdoor Loop Better I bought both the Can Bandz and the Band-It Outdoor Loop to see which one I liked better. The Band-It Outdoor Loop is a lot more durable and would fit over larger wastecans

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who knew? I didn't even know I wanted this until I saw it on the website, but it's cool. No more losing half the garbage bag down the trashcan. Now, I can push down garbage as far as possible, and the bag stays up, so I can use more of it and waste less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Have Saved My Life! I've used these over a several year period and they make such a difference in my trash perspective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many uses These are great. We use them in our trash cans to hold in the trash bag. We also use them in the laundry baskets to keep the fabric liner in. It is also great to use on the kids coloring table to keep the paper held down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life simpler I use these with our kitchen garbage can -- the swing lid can also sold by Container Store. They're sturdy and hold the bag tightly, even on a smaller trash can. And the piece of mind from not having to clean up food spilling into the can is absolutely worth the price!
Date published: 2010-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These! Can Bandz are great for keeping the trash bags where they belong instead of at the bottom of the can. I also use them to hold up the fabric liner in the clothes hamper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why I never thought of this This is so incredibly simple an idea, I should have thought of this a long time ago. Awesome idea, and awesome quality. They really work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great We love to use these in our kitchen trash can. We have a round can and it seems like the trash bags were constantly falling until we purchased these. They work great and hold up for many uses!

Community Q&A

how many come in the pack

it says it comes 15 to a pack, so when I purchase 1 pack for 2.99 that includes 15 of them or just one?
Asked by: aking826
You get 15 bands per pack for $2.99.
