'Say goodbye to fumbled carry-ons': This suitcase strap keeps your bags contained and it's on sale for just $9

This super affordable strap keeps your personal item or any additional bag firmly in place until you take it off.

Traveling is fun, but it can also be stressful. Particularly, if you're dashing through the airport with a gaggle of suitcases and a carry-on, you can end up looking (and feeling) like you don't have enough arms to control it all. When this problem arises, most people plop their bag on top of their suitcase, but unless it has a trolley sleeve, it's likely going to go tumbling off eventually. One of the easiest ways to ensure that it doesn't is by reinforcing it with this luggage bungee strap that's on sale for as low as $9 on Amazon.

Why is this a good deal?

Whether you're on the road often or just occasionally, this is a product that you'll use every single time you travel by air — especially if you're taking a carry-on or checked suitcase and a personal item bag. Right now, it's 36% off at Amazon bringing its sale price down to under $10 — an absolute steal.

Why do I need this?

While there are tons of bags available today with built-in trolley sleeves that securely fasten your tote to your suitcase handle, not all of them sport this feature. But with this travel hack, you'll be able to make your own in seconds.

To use it, simply extend both straps around the bag you want to attach to your suitcase then place the end with the buckle to the back of your roller luggage handle and snap it into place. It's that easy! Then, when you've made it to your plane or train seat and you're ready to stow your bags, simply unbuckle it and wrap the straps around the square tab. When not in use, it literally fits in the palm of your hand, so you'll be able to store it in just about any pocket in your carry-on or personal-item bag.

The Guanjunx Luggage Strap is available in two sizes in black, blue, green and orange, a nice perk if you're a fan of color-coordinated luggage.

What reviewers say:

With over 2,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, it's no surprise that travelers can't get enough of this hidden gem. One reviewer who started his review urging shoppers to "buy this now" said he gives it "six stars" — if only that was possible. "Say goodbye to fumbled carry-ons and backpacks," he wrote. "This sets up and comes apart in seconds and holds your stuff securely through airports and taxis and subways and train stations and hotel lobbies and city streets."

Another shopper said they love this affordable contraption so much that they "wouldn't travel without it" since it's "so quick and easy to use to keep luggage together! ... No more trying to keep the carry-on on the suitcase and maneuver through the airport."

The general consensus among shoppers, though, might be described as Where has this been all my life? "Wish I had been smart enough to buy these ages ago," said one rueful reviewer. "I will literally never carry my backpack through the airport again."

A couple of shoppers said they wished the strap was just a little bit longer to more easily go over jam-packed backpacks. However, one of the shoppers who shared this critique still gave the product a five-star rating and admitted that it's such a handy product for everyday travelers.

If you're sick of your personal item bag constantly slipping off of your carry-on suitcase, this strap will keep it in place until you're ready to take it off.
