Does anyone use one of THESEin their travels? If the hook touches the germs wouldn’t you have to sanitize it or throw it away? How fast can the germs travel up the hook? I’ve been missing out on all this stuff so Im probably lucky to be alive. I never knew!

It looks like just another "As Seen On TV" gadget to me.
There's no doubt it can be useful for some applications but, I think you're better off washing your hands often and using sanitizer when you can't wash.

I use one but it doesn’t work on my bank’s ATMs. It does work punching mechanical buttons similar to old pay phones. I can also open pull doors but I forget it. I suppose it helps.

Hahahahaha.

Sad part is, people buy em probably.

Even sadder, "most" of the people I come across are of the same opinion about masks too...yet here we are.

Now, that's just too funny! In the products pics, the person is also wearing rubber gloves!

Whatever works for you in the end... If that kind of thing makes you feel better living your life, go for it.

This is REALLY too funny. I work for a high tech company that I won’t name, but they sent one of these to everyone in our business unit. They also sent us a pair of sun glasses to help us focus on our bright future, so there you go.

They did suggest we clean it after every use [emoticon]
