Window opener over sink

The challenge

A common problem encountered by clients such as Ada is being unable to reach to open windows – especially those in kitchens where the window is the far side of the sink.

An opener with a ring to slip over the window handle was made, with a cross formed by two pieces of dowel for a handle. Such a handle makes it easy for people with arthritis, or with little strength generally, to turn the window opener.

Ada can now open and close the windows in her kitchen again.
