Description: I ride the subway here in San Francisco several times per week, so when I saw this product in the NYT Style section I was hooked. The Transtrap is your own personal strap to be used on a bus or subway. My first thought was that this is a device for the overly paranoid. However, after observing some riders this afternoon, I noticed that short people could really benefit from this design as well.
