Now I’m forced to go on twice daily walks to school in whatever weather it can be hard to stay dry in our great British weather, especially when you’re pushing a buggy. It was the same when we had Amy and the wheelchair. It’s easier to keep the babies dry with rain covers but us parents always end up on the soggy side. If you try holding an umbrella and a pushchair you end up veering off or getting a wet patch.
Enter the Deki Dry and Go universal umbrella holder. It has a universal attachment that fits on to your stroller or wheelchair and you fix on your umbrella, so you can push the buggy or pram and keep dry at the same time. It would work for a sun shade too. I had a little go with it in my garden, I seem to have lost all adult umbrellas yet I have two child umbrellas in the house, so if I look like I’m bending down, I am. It was easy to attach and work out how to use, it’s sturdy and solid, unlike those bendy sunshade clip on holders which are quite frankly, useless. I shall be drier now on those soggy school runs.
How the Deki Dry & Go works
You unscrew the bottom part to fit your buggy (mine is a babyjogger), I had to put it lower down on my buggy as the top handle was too wide. It is described as universal, fitting diameters from 0.74in to 1.38in. Then the umbrella fits in to the top part, it screws in easily and would fit any umbrella style. Then the clever part is that there are multiple ways to adjust it and angle it so you’ll be dry. You could also use it as a sunshade for the baby. The two grey buttons mean you can swivel the bar forwards, backwards and side to side. It is currently retailing at £22 on Amazon.
