Many devices have buttons that we have to touch, e.g.: ATMs, self-service machines, POS terminals, door phones, elevators, car park ticket machines, mobile phones, etc. This innovative device works on the basis of a spring-operated mechanism which ejects a retractable pin at the push of a button. With the ejected pin instead of your fingers, you can safely press all kinds of buttons and keys. Using this device prevents the transfer of viruses and bacteria from various surfaces onto your fingers, as well as the possibility of subsequent pathogen transfer directly into your body, for example by touching your face with contaminated fingers. When not in use, the pin is retracted into the device, which means that there is no possibility of infection. When used as a keychain, the device will be close at hand and ready to use at any moment.
