Sean Ragan made this trash bag holder using PVC pipe, ENT conduit, and come ball chain clips to hold the bag in place. Beats the SkyMall version any day!

      I suppose trash bag holder is a comfort word for Trash Can!!!

        I wonder if it counts as a “trash can” if it’s not enclosed on the sides and bottom.

    I love this concept. After fighting with my trash can to remove the liner, or not using a liner and fighting with the clean packing material shoved into a can to get it out, I am looking for a frame that allows you to stuff the bag and then remove and tie it and throw it away. What size bags does this take? Can it hold a lot of weight or do the blue rings start to sag with weight. thanks for the reply.
