iCAT a Deal!

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The iCat is a $30 retractable reel leash for your iPhone, iPod, or iPad.  What that means in English, is that the iCat has a clip on one end that hooks on a belt loop. The other end has a iPlug connector that attaches to your Apple product.

The "leash" on the iCat is 24-inches long.  

The theory is that you attach the iCat to your beltloop, use the connector on your iPhone, and then, it allows you to be handsfree. 

The question we had was how strong the iPlug (their term) connector is to the phone.

We tried to shake the phone loose from the connector and it held tight. It also held an iPad tight.   I'm not sure why you would need it for the iPad but it held tight.

Again, it's a little expensive.  The iCat cost $30.   But we like it. We made the iCat a "Deal."
