    Are you really going to carry one of those around in your purse in case you happen upon a bathroom with all stall locks broken? So a woman opens the door and sees you there. No big deal to me. I don't carry a purse either, so there is that. I operate with my wallet in one jean pocket and cell phone in the other. I do have one purse for when I don't have pockets, but that is rare.

    I don't believe he spent more than a few hundred dollars on it.

    I would buy the stall clip. It helps maintains the illusion that I have privacy in a public restroom. And any mom who has ever had to take her child into the stall with her would appreciate it.

    Door Clip

    Put me on the list of future purchasers. Locks in public restrooms are too often broken and trying to pee with your leg propped against the door makes me feel like an idiot.

    And furthermore, I was once in alone in a Denny's restroom sitting on the stool when I saw male feet facing me and a pair of male hands grabbing the top of the door. I shudder to think what might have happened had that particular stall had a faulty lock.

    So I'm suggesting a stronger version of the door clip - one that can't be pulled off the top.

    I think this is a winner! I've known a number of women with breast cancer, and the sensitivity/sweating of the scalp thing is a big problem for them with almost any head covering, even if they don't use a wig. (Which many don't because it is so uncomfortable.) The size and shape are crucial to making it a comfortable fit--just sticking a pantyliner on your head won't work, in addition to being distasteful. The last thing a woman with chemo/alopecia baldness needs to feel less attractive. They can also come in an array of colors...a tie-in to the pink ribbon campaign would work. I can see loads of people buying these for friends, too. I would.

    And they would be great for people who have to wear helmets or other protective headgear. If they come in the right colors and differentiate it, that's a whole additional market.

    This only needs good packaging and marketing to succeed.

    Great idea.

    Me too. And I particularly like the fact that it clips onto tissues so you have a backup in case there's no TP. I might not carry it around in my purse all the time, but I would definitely buy one to keep in the glove compartment of the car for road trips.

    It was great that the female judge backed her up so strongly--the men clearly didn't realize how common it is to encounter the broken door and how much it bugs women. And it makes sense--most of the time, men probably use urinals--not an option for women.

    I know several drill sergeants in the Army who use pantyliners on their hats to keep them from getting sweaty and nasty. I'm sure they'd love to use something a little less "feminine"!

    I agree that the stall clip is a very good idea. However it seems to be made of plastic so I have a feeling that it's going to break after several uses. IMO a metal version would be better and strong enough to hold a broken door.

    I have a friend who can make her voice sound exactly like that of the Therapy Buddy's. But when she does it, it's funny. That thing was just ... creepy.

    If she moves up she'll get $50,000 to improve it, maybe make it metal.

    Way too many commercials again.
