Special doorknob helps with home accessibility and ease of use

Bucking tradition

Although we admit the above video is more like an infommercial, we wanted to share it with you anyhow. The UltraLatch is an extremely useful tool for anyone with physical challenges or is just too lazy to turn a door handle (we all thought it looked easier for hands-free entry).

We have learned that the UltraLatch was inspired by the auto gear shifter and retrofits most standard doors.

Good tool for agents to know about

Realtors should be aware of features like this, especially when working with clients with physical needs like disability or aging. Buyers can look at existing features of a home and limit their search because of an unwillingness to retrofit, but having features like this in your mind as the agent may help expand a search.

Currently, the UltraLatch is on the market, but they are not the easiest parts to find. They can be purchased through a local SOSS representative and prices are not featured online. Click here to see if there is a retailer near you in the event you or your clients want ease of entry to any home.
