Rated 2 out of 5 by mrfixit99 little value
in theory this seems fine. here is what i found in practice:
- opening not wide enough and too many leaves miss the hoop opening
- gets awkward and time consuming to carry and anchor bag so often
- leaves fill up bag opening so you have to keep stopping to compress leaves
- when bag nearly full it actually interferes with work
- not quick enough to install bags and only works with plastic ones
I later found the Leaf Loader which does all those and very versatile for filling garbage cans too and all size bags/cans... It also allow me to rake into it without making piles and really is easy to fill extra and then compressing it without stopping and wasting time.... and about the same price.

Well, I was so excited to get this and was so disappointed. The idea is great, but the spikes wouldn't stay in the ground. After raking 2 piles of leaves into the bag, the lasso would move and it was more work than I had planned on. I use to have a yellow shovel from QVC that is no longer available for picking up leaves. It was excellent and after years of using it, it finally broke. I did return the lasso, but had wished it would have worked better. I am always looking for ideas to make leaf raking easier when putting them into bags. I also have a round frame that holds the bags and that is very flimsy and no longer works either.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Judypaints Great Clean Up tool even for the elderly
I received my Leaf Lasso in perfect condition. I purchased it for my husband who is 87 and still does a lot of clean up. Last weekend our kids helped us clean out our garage of 44 years of collecting. It was quite a mess. We had about 5" of leaves and dirt and acorns on the floor. We pulled out the leaf lasso and they were astonished at how great it worked and how quickly we were able to tackle this very messy project.
I used contractor bags, not the tall skinny ones, the bigger ones, and regular leaf bags. My product came packaged well, with a color brochure showing the way to use and replace the bags. Even at our age we had no problem setting up and using this. We are thrilled with it and plan to buy one for each son-in law for the next holiday requiring gifts. We both heartily recommend this product. Its strong, pretty, easy to use and very very helpful. I wish I could show you a picture of my husband sweeping out our nearly immaculate (first time in 40 years) garage

I have a Leaf Lasso and I love it. I use it in my yard, my driveway and garage and in my home office to empty my shredder basket.
I also used it to clean a neighbor's basement after a storm. With a 33 gal contractor bag, I was able to clean up debris like sheetrock, wet cardboard and wood chips.
I use this to hold open a recycle bag at my summer bbq. This was the first year everyone recycled!
My seven year old likes to hold the leaf lasso while I garden and rake leaves. She can even change the bag herself.
I had no problem with my shipment. It came with a 4 color brochure explaining everything... and in perfect condition. I use it with any leaf or lawn bag. I plan to buy another one to keep mounted on my garage wall. Its a great versatile product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by scg Hard To Use
I agree with the previous review. I did not see an on-air demo. There were no directions with the product so I am not sure how to use it. I looked at the video online but it doesn't have any audio and I still can't tell how to put the thing together. The packaging was not QVC packaging. The box was too big with no support so it is smushed and impossible for me to send the item back. The item is too big to put in another box for return. The trash bags rip when you try to remove them. Guess I am stuck with a bad product. I ordered this because it had good reviews from the "sprouts" products. Once I ordered the item the reviews went to one star.

..will I purchase an item without first seeing a QVC live demo. This is a great concept, sturdy and that is why I ordered it. That said, it came very poorly packaged, no information about the item or sizes of bags, etc. Also it was to come with 2-spikes that secure it and one was missing (probably fell out during shipment due to the poor packaging). I tried my 30 gallon black trash bags and they did not fit and you can probably only use "squared" top bags (no tie flaps they get in the way). Maybe the huge contractor bags would work better but they are more expensive. If they should make another version that will fit more bag sizes, I might try again, but for now going back.
