Navigating through doors is a challenge wheelchair users face daily. Closing a door behind you after moving through it is awkward because of space limitations and having to turn and approach the door handle at an awkward angle to grab it and pull it closed.
Here’s where the T-Pull door closer steps in as a remarkable solution, providing an easy, practical method to close doors without a hassle. The simple installation and ergonomic design of the T-Pull make the ordinary task of closing a door less of a hassle.
What is the T-Pull Door Closer?
The T-Pull door closer is a brilliantly designed handle that significantly eases the process of closing doors. Whether using a wheelchair, crutches, or a walker, the T-Pull is here to simplify your life. This door closer is easily affixed to your door with a sticky adhesive pad, no need for screws or drills. It’s a straightforward solution to a problem faced by many.
One of the notable features of the T-Pull is its ergonomic, swivelling handle design. This handle tucks neatly against the door when not in use, ensuring it’s not in the way. Crafted from high-quality materials, the T-Pull is durable and can withstand a variety of environmental conditions, including extreme temperatures (it was designed in Canada!). Furthermore, it’s versatile and can be installed on both interior and exterior doors, making it a universal solution.

About the Inventor of the T-Pull Door Closer
Tony Awad, a resolute disability entrepreneur from Ottawa, Canada, found his calling in aiding others with mobility difficulties post a life-altering car accident in 2006. While delving into robotics engineering, Tony invented the T-Pull door closer, melding accessibility with durability in a swivel handle design adaptable for both external and internal doors.
Background and Inspiration
Previously a serial entrepreneur leading high-tech start-ups, Tony transitioned into robotics engineering post-accident to engage his mind and contribute meaningful solutions. The spark for the T-Pull invention was ignited during a school project on self-driving wheelchairs. Tony observed the door-closing dilemma faced by wheelchair users, further fueled by a friend’s experiences who often found himself caught between doors due to his wheelchair’s delayed clearing of the door frame.
How the T-Pull Works
The T-Pull boasts a simple yet effective mechanism. Its swivel handle mounted on a base, adhered closer to the hinge side of the door, allows users to pull the T handle to close the door. The swivel action and handle length ease the effort required, even for heavy doors, making door closing a less daunting task.
Production and Distribution
From handcrafting a T-Pull for his friend to creating 500 units by hand, Tony’s venture gradually expanded as the device gained traction among the disabled community. Although now the parts are created in small batches and sent to his Ottawa workshop for final assembly and shipping, Tony’s hands-on approach remains, ensuring high-quality standards with a personal touch.
