Car door grab bar

  • What does it do?:

    A portable handle that helps people get in and out of the car. There is a built-in LED light too. 

  • 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:

    Straightforward to unpack and to understand how it located onto the car door frame and how to use.  Makes a huge difference in getting in and out of the car, provides good leverage to get in and out and also to shuffle around on the seat to get oneself comfortable.  The small light could be good on dark nights.

  • What our testers disliked:

    It is important to remember to remove the handle before you shut the door!  This model can only be attached in one position, facing the front of the car so you are effectively climbing around it to get in and out. Needs to be wrapped in something soft if stored in the car door pocket as it rattles about.

  • What our testers said:

    "This does make it easier to get in and out of the car!"

  • Manufacturer:

    care cane

  • Approximate cost: £12
