Then I found this cover. You don't even have to ask people to smile when you pull out your phone for a photo.
Look at the hand friendly profile. The beak acts as a slip-stopper.
The next place I shopped was Lee Valley, an online and real life woodworking and hardware store. I love it when I find things that let me easily do what I want to do.
These forceps (technical name is 'label removing pliers') were only $3.50. It's so hard to pull many of the interior covers and safety seals off of products. No one advises you to use your teeth on those obstacles.
Twist ties and cables also drive me crazy. These are larger and easy to use as well as looking very cool and visible. Thin wire ties are so hard to open, even to find the starting point.
I also liked the idea of making my own magnetic handle. I bought some magnets that are threaded and screwed them into a handle that was sitting around. This should make it easier to open metal drawers with awkward pulls.
All in all these were very rewarding purchases, including the grater with the big handle and good angle.
You can find an interesting project about devices and strategies that make life easier at Rheumful of Tips. It's been a lengthy project from Auntie Stress and covers a lot of territory.
And another with more helpful ideas.
