New Bib Hanger: Have Questions
Thanks SS4 for the great piece on hanging. I’m reading it with great interest.
Coincidentally, my Bib Hanger just arrived the day your article was posted. The unit had some unexpected characteristics, and I was hoping to draw upon the expertise of the hangers on the forum to find out whether these are normal.
First, I noticed the “gel” material lining the inside of the hanger appeared to be slightly lubricated. I couldn’t tell what the lube was, but there was definitely a slippery film, especially on the outer “fingers” near the adjustment screws. I suspect the lube was water based, because it seemed to dry up and left kind of a dry residue on my fingers.
Here’s another thing, and this is kind of freaky. I found a hair stuck to the gel material. It was curly, coarse, and about 3/4” long. Sound like anything you recognize?
This raises some questions: Are Bib Hangers tested in real use situations? Are returns accepted? What is the process for reconditioning a returned unit?
Anyway, I’m slightly freaked out. However, aside from the notable characteristics mentioned above, the unit appears to be sound and in good condition.
I think I’ll just give it a good washing with soap and water before using it. Ick!
