This is a Door handle attachment. It was manufactured by Lindustries. It is dated 1983 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is molded plastic. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

The simple lever design of this plastic attachment makes the task of opening doors easier for those challenged by grasping and twisting circular door knobs. The bright red color enhances visibility, making the knob easier to locate.
