Also great for drying your reusable snack & sandwich bags
Telescoping Bag Dryer looks like a piece of industrial art, with four arms that extend out up to 10 inches. At the ends of each arm are a pair of alligator clips, which securely hold all varieties of plastic bags or other lightweight items. They could even be used to display flowers, pictures or cards. Arms are affixed to a square marble base that ensures stability, but doesn't take up too much space on your counter top. Additionally, when the arms are extended, your bags are spread far enough apart to ensure proper drying.
To increase drying, use both clips on one arm to hold each side of a bag. Place the dryer on a flat, level surface to make sure it doesn't slip or slide. The dryer's arms spin and pivot at the base, and are not to be bent other than at the axis.

Product Name & Number Telescoping Bag Dryer (ZIP-04)
I'd like to think this product saved these attennae from the landfill, but I'm not sure about that. Either way I use it and really like the design and the functionality of it. One thing that would make it even better, would be to have one or two even longer spokes. Altogether better than the cabinet pulls I was using before now!
VERY useful for drying bibs and wrap-n-mats (reusable sandwich bags/placemats). I think it's quite a creative invention, too. Balancing things is probably the most challenging issue. I put this on my window sill above the kitchen sink (which is not very wide) and it sometimes tips over if items are too heavy on one side & things aren't balanced well. But if I put this on my counter, it's fine.
This is a brilliant idea and the best way, I've found, to dry plastic bags as well as those reusable elasticized covers (they look like shower caps). It might not be the best for large bags, but there are ways of making it work, even with those. We are definitely a fan and reuse our plastic bags until they're just worn out.
I've designed things for most of my 41 year career and usually I give others some slack because I know the difficulty of balancing performance, cost, and time to market. But in this case, I have to give both thumbs down to the designers of this product. To get the alligator clips separated as shown on the package, you would have to permanently deform the stranded wire portions, but there is no mention of this - and really no instructions at all - except for text on the box. And even when the alligator clip pairs are separated, it really only works with lightweight bags of a small size because most of the other bags just fall over no matter how they are clipped. While the telescoping 'antennae' do extend as intended, the lack of being able to prevent free rotation also limits the positioning of the bags being held. I have made some modifications to one of the units which help the function somewhat, but I remain disappointed with this product and question whether Reusit actually does any product testing prior to release. I have three of the six ordered in original condition which I will gladly return for refund.
Well, all I can say is that it does exactly what it says, and in a stylish manner. I used to have baggies hanging all over my kitchen trying to dry them out in order to put them away and reuse them. This little gadget makes it easier to keep them neat when drying them out, and when it's not in use it's easy to just tuck into a little corner on my counter. I've looked at similar bag dryers before, but was never sure how useful they would be. The telescoping clips make this bag dryer far more useful than the bamboo wooden ones. A great purchase!
This bag dryer is really great in its function, having the clips and the telescoping arms makes it so flexible for maybe bag drying applications. No more sliding bags over wooden spoons in the drainer, and waiting 2 days for them to dry, this takes care of the task efficiently.
Packs small but very useful. We like ours so much, we ordered two more as gifts. Modern design but feel like some old school tv's are missing their antennas. :) Basically there are four antennas that extend and rotate and each one has two alligator clips on the end.
the bag drying rack, although not a necessity for reusing storage bags, looks good sitting on the counter and serves it's purpose in a less obtrusive way. no more lining the open bags up along the counter.
