Shmiras Shabbas Ke'Hilchasa (18:44) writes that one may walk into a Reshus HaRabbim with an identification label that is sewn or stuck to one's garment.

Even in a real public domain one can carry things within 4 Amot. (ShA OC 349) So he was allowed to pick it up and put it on. Then he's wearing it and can continue walking. (Though he might not have been allowed to wear it without enough clips to begin with...)

Kitzur Shlchan Aruch The Kitzur Shlchan Aruch in סימן פב - אסור העברה והוצאה מרשות לרשות explicitly forbids it. It's irrelevant if the child can already walk or not. סעיף י': הָאִשָּׁה מְדַדָּה אֶת בְּנָהּ אֲפִלּוּ בִּרְשׁוּת הָרַבִּים, וּבִלְבַד שֶׁלֹּא תִּגְרְרֵהוּ, אֶלָּא יְהֵא מַגְבִּיהַּ רַגְלוֹ הָאַחַת וְיַנִּיחַ הַשְּׁנִיָּה עַל הָאָרֶץ ...

Regarding the first part of the question, Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh, Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 301:54) states (my translation): מותר לצאת בשבת לרשות הרבים עם סיכת ראש שנועדה להתפיס את הכיפה לראש, ואין לחוש בזה לאיסור הוצאה בשבת. It is permitted to travel between domains on Shabbat with a hair clip which is designed to secure the kippah on one's head and ...

R. Neuwirth in Shemirat Shabbat Kehilchata (16:24) writes that one should not wear ordinary sunglasses in a place where there is no Eruv because they are not considered clothing. However, if the sunglasses are never taken off even indoors (eg. for medical reasons) then they are considered clothing and can be worn even outdoors with no Eruv. In footnote 94 he ...

Firstly, as Clint Eastwood already touched upon, it is not at all clear that the waste one flushes will go to either a reshus harabbim (public domain) or a karmalis, at least without requiring others to act further down the treatment process: from ...

from http://doseofhalacha.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/a-key-issue.html The Shemiras Shabbos Kehilchasa (18) writes that if the front door opens onto the street, one must open the door while still ’wearing the key’. R’ Yitzchak Yaakov Weiss held that if the keyhole doesn’t go all the way through to the other side of the door, one hasn’t placed the key into a ...

Flushing a toilet is definitely not carrying because the network of sewage pipes under the city is a reshut hayachid. As to the outlet pipe, there is some delay and disconnect between the flush of your toilet and waste coming out the other end. You will contribute to the flow, but the stuff you flush only pushes out the stuff that flows out, so this action ...

My rabbi told me that I should carry candy with me everywhere I go on Shabbos, out of concern for hypoglycemia, which is a life-threatening condition. Hypoglycemia (also called "low blood sugar," or just a "low") is a function of type 1 diabetes. A low can come almost without warning, even with the best control (trust me, I know). If I'm going long-distance, ...

I've seen and done many shinuyim in my time. The easiest that I could think of, if you're the black hat type (or heavily involved in Winterbash ;-), is to put something under your hat. There's usually plenty of room in there. Another shinuy could be to put something in your sock, though if you'll be walking for a while, expect blisters on your ankle ...

Most front doors I'm familiar with — but certainly not all — are not the boundaries between two r'shuyos (such as a r'shus hayachid and a karm'lis). Thus, there's no problem walking in while carrying a key. Since people using the key belt as a belt normally need a belt, however, they will nonetheless want to (reattach the key if they'd detached ...

I've seen a bunch of people bring umbrellas to shul on Shabbat and leave them open during in the coat room during service. I know you're not supposed to open an umbrella on shabbat but there's a different rule for carrying an already open umbrella. If you open the umbrella before shabbat it's permissible in an erev. The torahmusings link suggests that you ...

Harav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach paskens quoted in Meor HaShabbat Peninei Homer 3:8 in regards to opening up bottle caps (which some are makpid not to open on Shabbos) if one may open it for someone else who is makpid not open them. Rav Shlomo Zalman says that it depends on whether the one abstaining from opening it does so because they hold that it is ...
