A child safety belt and a carbineer clip could be the end of your shopping worries!

The Windham Police Department (WPD) in New Hampshire posted on their Facebook page that your bag (properly zipped up of course) can be secured "to the cart by clipping the child safety belt through the strap(s)".

Don't have a safety belt on your trolley? Duck out to your local hardware store and pick up a relative inexpensive carbineer clip and then keep it on your bag at all times.

"Simply clip the carabiner to the trolley" the WPD continued. "And your bag is more secure!"
