Touch Stick – the hygenic way to use public keypads


You’re young, naive, afraid and not a little paranoid. You’re living in a town filled with dirt, germs, disease and Barry Manilow fans. What to do? Why purchase one of these keychain Touch Sticks of course. Now every time you’re faced with a keypad on an ATM, credit card terminal or other public death trap, you can whip out this doozy and press the keys at a distance. Safe at last, praise be, we’re safe at last! The mind boggles, doesn’t it? $2.99.

  Great for keypads/point-of-sale terminals in stores, ATMs, elevator buttons, gas station pump buttons, courier scanners, and more # Wide, flat round end for pushing mechanical buttons # Integrated stylus tip for tapping electronic buttons and for signing # Mounts on key ring for ready availability # Made of strong high quality polycarbonate ABS

  • Haha how very strange …

  • I sincerely hate using pens 1000 people have used before me to sign my credit card slip (or whatever). I try to remember to carry my own pen around but as a guy that means sticking one in my coat pocket which I rarely remember to do. Thankfully when I am out with my wife, I can use one she has in her purse.

    I also really dislike the credit card POS things that require you to use their little tethered electronic pen. How many people have touched those before you? It used to be you could sign and punch the buttons with the corner of your credit card but most of those have disappeared now.

    Quality website design and development from Kallen Web Design,

  • But then wouldn't you need to sanitise it before you put it back in your pocket? May as well just press the buttons with your fingers like a normal person and then sanitise them.
