The U.L.O. Beach Safe
($24.95) is a nifty gadget that will alleviate your paranoia of getting things lost or stolen. It is an 8-ounce, opaque, and indestructible receptacle that locks onto a beach umbrella and keeps it open as a failsafe.
"Your umbrella is your alarm," explains John Parlapiano, creator of the safe and managing partner of Montclair Beach Products. "It is impossible to close the umbrella with the U.L.O. Beach Safe in place. Therefore, a thief would have to take your open umbrella to steal any valuables locked in the U.L.O. Beach Safe. Try fitting that into a getaway car."
The Beach Safe is designed to fit your cell phone, MP3 player, digital camera, keys, wallet and more and is protected by a metal Transportation Security Administration-approved combination padlock.
