The newly-invented Footle is an attachment that goes on the bottom of a sliding screen door and enables the user to push or pull the door with their foot when opening or closing it.
Product inventor Liz Herman says its perfect for backyard barbecue and cocktail parties when its hard to open a backyard or patio door without first putting down trays of food and drink.
She says the product is very easy to use and wont cause you to throw out a hip because, as she puts it, The door slides so much better when its pushed from the bottom anyways.
Herman is trying to kick the $14.99 device into stores by summer, but for now its only available at footle.com.
