Handy bar

  • What does it do?:

    Helps folks in and out of the car.

  • What’s the problem?:

    Used to help people with restricted mobility in and out of the car.  Preventing hands being accidentally shut in the door.

  • What our testers liked:

    Good to unpack and understand how to locate and use.  Very useful to get in, out and adjust position in the car.  The extra benefit in this model is the brighter colour, it has a longer handle than the Car door grab bar and can be attached in 2 positions which makes it even easier to move around.

  • What our testers disliked:

    It is important to remember to remove the handle before you shut the door!  Needs to be wrapped in something soft if stored in the car door pocket as it rattles about.

  • What our testers said:

    "Good device to help people in and out of the car."

  • Approximate cost: £27
