Squeegee, an assistive device for circuit breakers

Wheelchair users can use a squeegee to reset circuit breakers.

Description
A squeegee makes a good tool for resetting circuit breakers that have tripped. It can also be used for purposes such as removing books from a shelf.

Authors comments
The squeegee works very well for resetting circuit breakers that work like rocker switches. However, it is not particularly suitable for retrieving books. It is all too easy to knock down unwanted items. Susanne plans to attach a hook to the other end in order to retrieve books.
