It keeps the bag upright and open.

The assembly is easy if you line up the holes ahead of time and then just slide the panels into the corners.

I've been looking for a solution to make using the paper recycling bags easier. They always seem to flop over at the worst possible time, making the chore of yard cleanup even more of a chore.

The first product I tried was the Leaf and Lawn Chute by Leaf Easy Industries. It has the big plus that there's no assembly needed - you just put it into the bag when it is folded, then unfold it, and then fold back the top to create the chute. Very easy, and also has the benefit that you can store it folded flat so it takes up little room.

However, the actual performance of the item was sub-par. Mine arrived with a busted seam that got worse with use. Plus, it only has three sides, so if you pack your paper bags full to minimize the number needed, the bag will blow out in the back since there's nothing to protect it from branches (or anything else that will go through paper).

I also had problems removing the Chute from a filled bag. It was fine when the bag was full of soft stuff (leaves and weeds), but it was a chore to remove the Chute without damaging the bag when the bag was full of branches and tough stuff (such as big clippings from ivy bushes - those leaves are sharp!). The three-sided design has some real drawbacks.

So, I tried the Yard Genie. It does take some time to assemble (took me about 15 minutes, and a rubber mallet is not a bad idea to save your hands). Take your time, and it goes together in a straightforward manner - it's not tough.

Once it's assembled, you're rewarded with a much better solution to the yard waste problem. It has four sides, so it protects every side of the paper bag from punctures. Like the Chute it is made of plastic, but it is made of more sturdy material.

I needed something that would support the lawn bags I use to collect leaves and other lawn debris and this Genie Bag Holder seemed like it would be perfect. It wasn't hard to put together (you might need a rubber mallet to tap the sides together) and once it is assembled, you place it upside down on the ground and place a lawn bag over it and the Genie Bag Holder keeps the lawn bag upright and open and you won't have to constantly stop your yard work to keep it from falling over. This was a great purchase for me.

Goes together in about two minutes and fits right in the bag. Stand it up or lay it on the ground and push the leaves right in....and pack them hard. It also keeps the sticks from coming out the sides.

I've had this handy little helper for about seven or eight years, and I wouldn't be able to do my yard work without it. For anyone working alone, trying to keep a paper bag open, unzip your blower/vac and empty the bag into the sack in the wind is a physical impossibility. Prior to having this item, the air was pretty "blue" during fall clean-up time around my yard (if you catch my drift). The assembly is easy if you line up the holes ahead of time and then just slide the panels into the corners. It took me about fifteen minutes to set mine up ready for use. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product for anyone looking for an easy way to hold a paper lawn bag open ready for the contents to be dumped in. Happy yard work to all!!!!!!

I've had mine for at least 8 yeas, it looks a little beat-up, minor tears at the corners, and still working beautifully. Extremely durable, but for the price, nothing beats buying one or two more extra and keeping them in their original packaging until you need them.

I live in a town that is really just a "guest" in the pristine and dense New England forest that settlers found here 400 years ago. Small property, tons of leaves each fall. This saves my back every year.

Complaints I've read here about this product, and solutions:

1. Difficult to assemble the panels to the corner-spines. Well, it uses provided plastic rivets, that go into pre-drilled holes, the fit is tight for a reason, you don't want it coming apart. Use a rubber mallet and take your time, you only have to assemble it once.

2. Heavy. Well, yes, it is just a tad heavier than most alternatives, and this is not a solution but a counter-argument - You won't believe how strong the wind has to be to knock this down, which would be a problem in the most gentle breeze with the lighter plastic products.

3. Mouth is too narrow for when you pour out leaves/clippings from your lawn mower. Okay, good point. Again, not a solution, but this was designed for filling in the bags manually. As it happens, both the clippings bag from my walk-behind mower and the three from my riding mower can be "poured in" if I'm careful enough, and yes, there will be some "spillage," and no, I don't need a butler to pick it up for me, it's called yard WORK for a reason. There's no shame in hiring a landscaper for fall-cleanup if you can't deal with it.

4. Difficult to get it in the bag. Okay. Then don't, just GET THE BAG on IT.

PROS: Easy to assemble; Works as described; Slides easily up and out of a bag that's been packed down with grass clippings or leaves; Serves to protect paper bag from being punctures by sticks

CONS: Plastic used for corner pieces is somewhat brittle (mine developed three cracks, each approx. 2-inches long, on the inside of the corner pieces ... I fixed these cracks with Loctite "Repair Extreme" glue -- putting a bead of glue on BOTH sides of each of these cracks -- and so far this repair is holding.

Suggestion to Manufacturer: Make the corner pieces out of a less brittle plastic, perhaps HDPE (high density polyethelene) which appears to be what the sides are made from.
