About the solution

Initially, Roy developed this product in order to create an environment for his young children to be independent and have the ability to do simple tasks (like turning the lights on and off) all on their own.

He immediately realized his invention could also be very useful for little people, wheelchair users, people with disabilities, people with limited mobility and people with impaired vision.

“The Light Switch Extension is an unbreakable, clear rod, approximately 12″ long. This is just enough length to allow people with limitations to reach the light switch themselves.
The Light Switch Extension‘s unique design allows users to “slip” the extension rod over any standard light switch. There is NO need for tools, and you can take it with you wherever you go!! The unique thin, clear extension rod is designed to blend with any decor, and it will compliment ANY room”, it says on the oficial website.
