I recently moved to an apartment and this dispenser is a god send after having the luxury of a back yard. If you have a dog, you know that it is impossible to control when and where they have to go and how embarrassing it is if you don't have something to clean it up with. Luckily, this clips on to all of the leashes that I have around the house so I have a bag with me every time we go on a walk. I have two of these dispensers for about a year, and neither have broken. I do not, however, buy these bags because there is a cheaper, green friendly bag set at Petco that fits perfectly. Both bags work fine, I just prefer to save a little money.
