Add the Covid Claw to your packing list.

Recommended Posts

The Covid Claw showed up as a suggestion on my Amazon Account. This should be added to the packing list along with the white noise machines, over the door shoe holders and Door decorations.  It’s perfect for those who are afraid of elevator buttons.

Interesting concept, but you would still have to sanitize it regularly.  I'll stick to using my hands (and sanitizing, of course)

If I'm worried that much, I think I'll pass. You can have my cabin......

As some businesses have suffered others have have made lemonade out of lemons. I would never use this. I’m not a germaphobe even in the middle of a pandemic but I bet they sell a lot of them. The only appliance we take on a cruise is a corkscrew.

Can it be used to remove those pesky virus-carrying passengers looking to share the elevator?

This is peak capitalism and I LOVE it.  I’m sure they will sell heck of out these.

 

Not for me though - give me germs.  Makes immune system stronger.  Rona is mainly airborne transmission anyways.

Another blatant commercial grab for money, LOL.

 

Funny as the virus transmission is mostly aerosol, the claw makes perfect sense, swing it around wildly to catch those droplets!

Chip there are a few on here I’ve engaged with that have probably already ordered it (won’t name any names) even though as you correctly stated AIRBORN transmission.  These folks love sanitizing stuff tho -  they will gladly add it to their daily Lysol protocols.

Fauci stated a week or two ago that catching covid from surfaces is not that likely.   Simply wash hands and keep out of mouth etc just to be safe.

Well they definitely need a disclaimer on the Claw - "Keep out of mouth."

Agree.  Now touching door handles in a public bathroom - that's a different story!

There are many, many different versions of this "key".  There is someone 3D printing them and giving them out for free in the community my Mom lives in.  Not something I am going to run out and buy.

The right corkscrew can now do double duty as a "claw".  Leave a cork on it to act as the hook. 

 

Easy to replace the hook daily by opening another bottle of wine.

Just don't recork an open wine bottle after using the cork end to open the bathroom stall door.😲

Recork a bottle?  I never seem to have that requirement. 🙂

I have it!  I got mine a while ago from Key Smart.  I also have a sanitizer tray with UV rays that sanitizes the key smart.  It's good for your phones and bunch of other things.  I use the Key Smart to enter doors that aren't electric and also you can use it to punch in numbers at the gas station or credit card needs.

EXACTLY. That's the funny thing. You are more likely to get a cold from touching surfaces than the Rona.
