Hands-Free Door Opener



In direct response to the coronavirus pandemic, Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) has developed a hands-free door opener that allows people to open latchless doors without using their fingers, arms or clothing. The company has also announced that 100% of profits from the sales of the new device will be donated to local food pantries in Boyne City, MI, and their surrounding 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 helping to stop the further 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 its 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.

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.
