Door closer for exterior door
A simple solution to close the door after entering or leaving, suitable for wheelchair users
A ski pass holder is attached with twist ties to the door handle, on the inside of the door. To close the door behind him when the user goes inside, he grasps the loop of the string with one finger. He attaches the loop to the wheelchair’s joystick and the door closes behind him as he goes inside.
With this simple solution the user can independently and easily close the door behind him when he goes inside.
