As a card worker who is always thinking (worried) about what I touch, this product rocks!
(Disclaimer: I have no commercial interest in this invention, directly or indirectly).
What do you think?

I think it will be interesting when someone bursts thru from the other side while your foot is tangled up in that... rather than snatching your hand back and giving him a dirty look you will be on the p*** soaked floor with a busted ankle wondering what happened. Smile

Its the stupidest invention ever. It will not catch on. Twisting ankles while drunk in a bar, anyone?

There's a very simple solution. Install the door so it opens away from the bathroom, and put in a kick plate. Gotta grab the handle going in, but you're washing your hands in there anyway, and they'll stay clean on the way out.

Or just grab an extra paper towel and use it to touch the door handle.

Ok, bad idea...so how about this?

Similar problem with that, I think. Hook your arm in it, and I think you are setting yourself up for an injury.

I think the kick-plate idea is fairly good. Also, why are these doors not automatically operated?

I guess the other route to go is to get rid of the door entirely, and use a partition wall near the entrance to block the view inside (e.g., like in many modern airports).

Crikey, you chaps are clean freaks. Open the blooming door then wipe your hand on your jeans like a man. And never EVER fit a door that opens outwards with a kickplate, the janitor will spend all day sweeping up teeth.
