Avoid Purse Snatching with The Rack Trap: A Review

picture of The Rack Trap for all your essentials (Limited Edition Gold)

I was approached in the WalMart parking lot last week packing up my car, with my 4 year old daughter when a man approached me. Immediately Alarms went off in my head. I turned on my Mommy Safety mode being sure my child was ok, that I could get in the car ok, that my purse was secure, etc. He kept his distance, asking if I could spare a dollar. I quickly replied that I carry no cash and got in my car. Luckily it didn’t turn into anything more. Luckily he didn’t grab my purse, or worse. Had I been wearing my Rack Trap, my purse would have been 1 less thing I was concerned about. What is a Rack Trap? It is an “undetectable one-size-fits-all personal bra pocket”. It is a tiny little purse that you can store your license, cash and credit cards safely at all times.

Hands On Review of Rack Trap

Why wasn’t I wearing my Rack Trap if I thought it was such a good idea when I was approached at WalMart? Because I was a little skeptical. It’s my nature. I see something that I think has value but then I’m a little skeptical. Well, no longer. I began wearing my Rack Trap for quick trips to the store, to the mall, and to the movie theater. These are places where I really don’t need a full, easy-to-snatch purse with me. I felt so much freer not worrying about setting my purse down or getting it snatched. If you are like me, you are always conscious of where your purse is in relation to other people. Think of the freedom this Rack Trap could give you. I’m serious, it is a freedom in not worrying.

The Rack Trap is small, lightweight and can fit in any size or style bra. Being the super-conservative girl that I am, I’m not demoing a picture of me wearing The Rack Trap, but honestly, you can’t see it anyway, that is kinda the point. The below picture shows the placement and how small The Rack Trap is place inside a bra.

I wondered how comfortable it would be and if I’d feel it all day. Once you place it in your bra, you’ll forget it is there. It’s soft, yet stays in place.

When to stuff your bra with The Rack Trap

Girls and women of all ages should stuff their bras with The Rack Trap. Think of it as a safety and convenience item. No female should ever be left alone with no money or ID, young or old.

    We live right near a bus stop & it is buy our grocery store. We always get people coming up to us asking for money for the bus. I hate that, so scary! I love the special gold edition, but the waterproof one is a great one to have!

    There is nothing worse than trying to look cool while paying with sweat soaked cash. I was happy to hear that the sporty version is sweatproof!

    The sports version sounds great with it’s sweat proof design. There is nothing worse than trying to look cool while paying with sweat soaked cash.

    I checked out the press section and watched the clip about the Rack Trap on the Wendy Williams show. It is hilarious! She said the instructions said to first locate your breasts, lol. She also recommended putting a condom in it along with some money. This looks like a great device whether you are out on the town or traveling and don’t want to put your essentials in a place that is easy to get to by pickpockets.

  7. Angela says:

    I like that the sports one is sweatproof and has a velcro closure. What a great idea. How many times do you find yourself without pockets and needing to carry an id and money.

  8. claudia says:

    Oh man, I want one of these SO bad! I go to concerts a lot and am stuck stuffing my money/driver’s license in the bottom of my shoe because I can’t carry a purse and stuff will slip out of my pockets in the mosh pits. This is the perfect solution! I like the lacy 3-pack the best… one for each color of bra! 😉

    The tomboy in me loves this idea. My gramma was always putting cash in her bra and losing it or fishing around to find it, which is kinda not so good looking in public. This will make my ID not only safe but easily accesable as well.
