Default Bellowz Buddy - a RicZ innovation

Here's a handy dandy way to hold back those frustrating bellows on fuel pumps so you can see what you're doing when filling the tank. Made of tough polyethylene plastic that will not scratch. Useful when filling containers too.
Simply clamp the nozzle between your knees, pull the bellows back and slip your Bellowz Buddy between the bellows and the stop ring on the tube and begin filling. To remove, place your index and middle fingers in the notches and pull firmly.
To order your Bellowz Buddy, email me at [email protected] (dot) com and I'll give you the PayPal address. Cost is a measly $10 and that includes shipping.

I talked myself into making them after many kept asking me "where'd you get that, I want one" as I was filling my bike with one I had for many years. Believe it or not, those things are very labor intensive, but that's due to my OCD. I round off every edge and corner so it feels good to the hand. Keeps me out of the pool hall and out of Pretty Wife's hair.

Great idea Ric and I would certainly buy one from you if I lived in a state that used the hard to pull back foreskins. It isn't exactly a new idea as I'm sure you know though.

I like yours better though...
