During the COVID-19 outbreak here in the US, I realized that I was still touching door handles and keypads when out for my occasional food/beverage run.
Introducing cleanhook - the only tool you need to never touch a door handle again! (Doorknobs, however, will still stymie you.) Complete with a recessed thumb rest for added muscle and a button fob for button-crushing accuracy! With a little paint or laquer, these will be ready to be sanitized and enjoyed for the months to come.
Inspired by the “Hygiene Hand” by StatGear, but since theirs is a Kickstarter and isn’t shipping yet, I made my own, better, less damaging one. On the other hand, theirs is supposed to be a stylus, too, which would be cool. Any ideas there?
Dimensions: approx. 3.5"x2", recommend 1/4" plywood.
Lessons learned: 1/8" acrylic is TOO FLIMSY. See rapid prototyping below. I can open my freezer door with this thing.
