The Kooty Key is the brain child of Ken Kolb of Clinton Township Michigan. Ken is a champion bodybuilder and an auto parts salesperson. Since he was on the road most of the day he routinely accessed public restrooms, restaurants, banks, stores, etc. Over the years he noticed how air blowers in restrooms were becoming more prevalent do to the focus on ecology. Restrooms that have air blowers usually do not supply paper toweling as an alternative drying method. In the past many people concerned with proper hygiene would dry their hands with the paper towel and then use it to grab the door handle of the restroom upon exiting. One day—during the peak of the flu season he was standing at the sink washing his hands, watching people use the facilities and then immediately exit the restroom without hand washing or cleanup of any kind. He thought about how often he had struggled to find a method of grabbing the handle upon his exit without re-contaminating himself with the millions of germs residing on the door handle. At that moment as he reached for his car keys a thought was born — the Kooty Key!
The Kooty Key comes equipped with an opening to attach to a key ring, belt loop, retractable badge, or add a carbine clip and hang it from your purse. The Kooty Key is an easy to use hands-free, germ-free utility tool!
