Avoid Germs On Restroom Door Pull Handles--Open a Public Restroom Door with your Wrist or Forearm

Share Article

The SanitGrasp® (patent pending) is an alternative door pull handle allowing patrons to exit the restroom with their wrist or forearm, thereby avoiding hand contact on the traditional door pull handle. This handle will reduce paper towel waste and improve your customer's experience.

Fulkerson, LLC received an overwhelming response to the unveiling of the SanitGrasp® (a patent pending vertical door pull handle which allows a person to exit a restroom with their wrist or forearm) at the NRA show in Chicago, IL this past May.

“The reaction was very positive. Many people commented that it was about time someone invented a solution to grabbing the traditional door pull handle,” said Fulkerson, LLC president Matthew Fulkerson.

Matthew Fulkerson’s belief that the following is a common experience within public restrooms was verified by numerous restaurant and hotel managers and owners.

Typical experience in a public restroom:

1. Use the facilities – probably with an automatic flusher

2. Wash hands – probably with an automatic faucet

3. Exit restroom by touching pull handle – hands once again are contaminated

The SanitGrasp® is the Solution

Patrons and employees may open the restroom exit door with their wrist or forearm. This

provides many benefits:

  •     Increase the sanitation within an establishment
  •     Reduce paper towel waste and expense
  •     Enhance customer experience
  •     ADA conformance

“The ability for an establishment to easily rectify a known issue was well received. We have begun testing within some prominent restaurant chains” stated Matthew Fulkerson.
