It’s a ridiculously simple idea, and one that seems totally obvious now, but for some reason it’s taken until the year 2011 for mankind to come up with the Toepener. It’s nothing more than an extra handle that sits at ground level allowing you to open a door with your feet. Besides the obvious health benefits of being installed on a public bathroom door saving you from having to touch a germ-ridden handle with your bare hands, the Toepener looks like it would also make doors easier to open when your hands are full. And it’s just $49.95, so really no public facility has an excuse not to install these.
