This ingenious device clamps around the top of cylindrical tap tops and provides the leverage to turn them easily. The barrel of the handle is spring-loaded to allow the jaws to clamp down on the tap, which is gripped by soft, non-slip rubber linings in the jaws. The jaws can be locked in position.
Turning taps on and off can be difficult for people with grip problems, including the elderly, people with Parkinson’s disease, and people living with arthritis. This independent living tool makes it easy, helping people continue to bathe unaided. It also helps them avoid scalds from attempting to turn off hot taps. A useful elderly care and dementia care aid.
