'shoe pull' is a foot operated door handle that leaves your hands clean and free

devised by philip watts design in an effort to minimize the transfer of COVID-19 and other germs, shoe pull lets you open any door using only your foot. created in response to the current global health pandemic, shoe pull® is designed to either replace or work in conjunction with pull handles on doors in public spaces – leaving your hands clean of potentially harmful germs and free to carry other things.

the footprint-shaped product is manufactured in nottingham, england, using 4mm thick stainless steel and finished with a satin brushed polish to provide strength and longevity. philip watts has designed the shoe pull to protect your door from scuffs and is compatible with a floor mounted door stop, which can be purchased separately. for the next 12 months watts will donate 20% of all profits from the sale of shoe pull to NHS charities in the UK.
