IMI Develops Germ-Free Door Opener, Donates 100% of Profits to Local Food Pantries

In direct response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Industrial Magnetics, Inc.(IMI) has developed a new, hands-free door opener that allows people to open latch-less 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 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 initial 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).
