Perfect Timing: Germ-Free, Hands-Free Door Opener

To help stop the spread of germs and bacteria, Industrial Magnetics has developed the Foot-Pull Door Opener that can be attached to the bottom of a door. The company is donating 100% of the profits from sales of the device to food pantries in its community.

In addition to functioning on latchless doors, IMI has devised a way to use its J-Hook to make latching doors latchless and compatible with the Foot-Pull Door Opener.

In direct response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) (Boyne City, MI) has developed a hands-free door opener that allows people to open latch-less doors without using their fingers, arms, or clothing.  The company is donating 100% of profits from sales of the device to local food pantries in their local communities.

The Foot-Pull Door Opener is attached to the bottom of a door and allows users to gently pull open doors using the sole of their shoe, eliminating the need to touch potentially contaminated door surfaces – and thereby reducing the spread of germs and bacteria.

The company has also devised a way for the Foot-Pull to work on latching, metal doors with lever-style handles by incorporating their “J-Hook” magnetic assembly.  The J-hook product attaches magnetically to the door and holds the handle in the open position, converting the door into a “latchless” style that can now be used in conjunction with the foot-pull.

Perfect for public restrooms, office buildings, and shop floors, the product can be used on metal or wood doors using the magnetic or through-hole mounting options. Built to last, the product is constructed from heavy-duty stainless-steel as a one piece, laser-cut and precision formed unit.

Profits earned from the sale of these items will be donated to the following organizations: Good Neighbors Food Pantry (Boyne City, MI), Care & Share Food Pantry (East Jordan, MI), and Community Food Pantry (Charlevoix, MI).
