Last week, Michigan-born Kooty Key launched on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to help raise enough money to create the next generation Kooty Key, the Kooty Key 2.0 featuring a larger anti-microbial rubber surface and comfort finger cradles.
As a traveling salesman, Kenneth Kolb of Clinton Township, was on the road most of the day where he routinely accessed public restrooms. Over the years he noticed how air blowers in restrooms were becoming more prevalent do to the focus on ecology. 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, but with the trend of air blowers on the rise, this was becoming less of an option. 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 washing their hands. At that moment, as he reached for his car keys, a thought was born—the Kooty Key!
This little gadget attaches to your keys next to your hand sanitizer for easy access any time. The Kooty Key can be used on public door handles, toilet levers, ATM and checkout keypads, and more and can be cleaned with warm soapy water or alcohol. The Kooty Key reduces the spread of illness-causing germs that are picked up everyday on common surfaces.
While the Original Kooty Key has been featured on Fox 2 and is now sold on Amazon as an Amazon Choice product, Ken, the creator of the Kooty Key, wants to bring the Kooty Key to the next level with the Kooty Key 2.0 offering a NEW, larger anti-microbial rubber surface and comfort finger cradles.
You can back The Kooty Key 2.0 from now until Sat., June 24, 2017 on their Kickstarter page; with pledges starting at $5 for a virtual (germ-free) high five, $10 for the Original Kooty Key, $20 for the new Kooty Key 2.0, and a limited edition Chrome Kooty Key package with pledges of $250 or more!
