For carrying bricks on your head
The hod is a device for carrying a load of bricks with one hand, leaving the other hand free to load and unload the bricks, and to facilitate climbing up ladders. It looks like a big right-angle bracket stuck diagonally onto a handle (see link).
But climbing ladders one-handed is dangerous. Isnt
there a way to have not just one, but two hands free whilst carrying bricks? There is now! Try the new hod hat.
Imagine a handsome black bowler hat with the business-end of a hod securely attached to the top. Put it on, load it up with as many as 20 bricks, and up the ladder you go, in safety and comfort.

||Wouldn't it be even easier/safer to climb that ladder with a hod belt?
||Maybe it's for a limited market of those who live in glass houses.
||Actually, it will send you to a chiropractor, or worse. Somewhere, I came across an article cataloguing the spinal injuries to African women accustomed to carrying their goods on their heads. This was in connection, I recall, with the development of an economical wheelbarrow made from bicycle wheels.
||Some personal advice: never try balancing a full glass of water on top of a mortarboard hat. Especially not minutes prior to collecting your degree...
