StepNpull - Customer Testimonial: Big Whiskey's

Nick Simmonds

See how the restaurant industry and businesses like Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar are using StepNpull to their advantage.

We spoke with Bradley Hamm at Big Whiskey's location in downtown Springfield, Missouri about how his employees and customers use StepNpull.

He said Big Whiskey's on Park Central East has four units: one for the patio, front door, and bathrooms.

It's been over a year since he got them installed. Bradley says he first noticed it made it easier for employees to go in and out with trays full of food, and made for a lot less awkward moments

Before, guests would have to help servers go from the patio back into the restaurant. 

Now with StepNpull, busy servers and busy guests can just walk in using only their foot. 

And another plus? Customers and staff don't have to touch a dirty door handle when leaving the bar's restrooms

Bradley said he saw other StepNpulls at businesses around Springfield and that it would be useful at Big Whiskey's

And since he got them downtown, all the other locations have joined in.

We're glad to see these StepNpulls getting so much traffic! Thanks to Bradley and Big Whiskey's!

New Customer: KC Steak Co.

Nick Simmonds

We welcome one of our newest customers, The Kansas City Steak Co. 

We’re here because of what we share with you—a passion for thick, juicy, flavorful steak.

Our dedication to delicious steak dates back to 1932, when we started as a small, family owned butcher shop named S&S Meat Company. Kansas City was a boomtown then, invigorated by the business of the livestock exchange and stockyards.

What sets us apart?
In a word—taste. We believe great taste matters above all else. Period. It’s the reason why you buy a great cut of meat and the reason we hold all of our cuts to the highest standard.

We source our rich, flavorful beef from the premier stockyards in Kansas. We wet age our steaks so they’re at peak tenderness when they arrive at your door. And we obsess over the details so every task results in the best tasting steak.

SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands 5 May 2017 [Video]

Nick Simmonds

StepNpull and WHO urges you to focus on the fight against antibiotic resistance in the context of hand hygiene and infection prevention and control (IPC) programs. You can do this by supporting the 5 May 2017 calls to action. Hand hygiene is at the core of effective IPC to combat antibiotic resistance, and campaigning each year on or around 5 May is one important part of improving behavior towards IPC best practices. This year the campaign materials are all co-branded with ‘Antibiotics, handle with care’ to demonstrate unity between antimicrobial resistance and IPC efforts.

#5 Mug Warmer

Mr. Coffee's Mug Warmer  - $9.99

Make sure Joe's cup of joe stays warm all morning with a convenient mug warmer. The company states in their F.A.Q, 

"The mug warmer keeps the temperature at about 212 degrees fahrenheit."

After double checking my college biology book I can confirm that 212° is, in fact, the temperature of boiling water. THAT'S REALLY HOT. Mr. Coffee has us terrified and excited at the same time to try out their mug warmer at the office. The product includes an on/off switch as well as an extended power cord so it can reach all the way around your desk. 

#4 Decision Paperweight

Paperweight from Uncommon Goods - $18.00

Is your co-worker notorious for not making decisions? This sturdy paperweight  made from aluminum doubles as an executive decision maker so they can finally make up their mind by just spinning the wheel. This trinket is a perfect opportunity to take a friendly jab at your boss while being "thoughtful" at the same time.

#3 Virtual Keyboard

Laser keyboard/mini speaker from ShowMe(TM) - $29.95

A little bit pricy for a co-worker, but what's wrong with spending a little extra this holiday season to make Cindi's workday a little bit more interesting? The product slings out a futuristic red keyboard to type on and doubles as a bluetooth speaker. Charge the upgraded 1000mAh battery with a universal micro USB, but don't worry about draining the battery when you aren't typing. When the device is left alone for 8 seconds, it switches to power-saving mode and dims the projection. Waking up the product is as simple as moving your finger under the projection area.

#2 Custom wooden coasters

Wooden coasters from Urban Farmhouse Tampa - $2.99

Give a personalized gift that stands out. These handmade coasters are laser engraved in Tampa, Florida. Add your bosses name or even your company logo to show off all of that company loyalty (LOL).  Each coaster is sold individually, but at three dollars a piece you can get one made for everyone in your department without breaking the bank.

#1 - Foot Operated Door Opener

The Real Reason Doors Are Heavy

Nick Simmonds

Heavy door?

Doors are everywhere (of course)...but take a second to think about how many times you were surprised at the effort it took to swing it open. The countless times that you walked through the door and thought, "geeze, that was really heavy." 

StepNpull® Silver Finish

StepNpull® is a foot operated door opener that works on any commercial solid core wood or metal door.

Each StepNpull® hands free door opener comes complete with mounting screws, door decal and installation instructions. StepNpull® is manufactured in Springfield, MO.

That heavy bathroom door at your office? The weight of the commercial door is not a factor but rather the amount of resistance the door closer provides. The door closer is the device mounted at the top of the door and is responsible for controlling how much effort is required to open the door.

If an interior door closer resistance is adjusted to the ADA standard of 5 pounds or less, then the user will be able to easily open the door with their hand (or foot while using StepNpull®.) If, however, an excessive amount of effort is required to open the door, the door closer resistance should be reduced to the minimum amount practical.There is virtually no reason a facility should have an internal door that is hard to open. Heavy doors are an avoidable and easily fixed issue.

ADA Compliance, and why you need to know it

ADA compliance isn't just important for proper business ethics, it's the lawThe Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation. 

Doors present some of the most common accessibility issues. They may be too “heavy” and require too much force to open. Those doors are especially difficult for people with disabilities and seniors with limited upper body strength and/or skills in using their hands.  They may close too quickly for some people to pass through easily.  People who move slowly or use mobility devices like wheelchairs or walkers may not be able to pass through fast enough.

"Since ADA compliance is the law, and enforceable on any public facility, it's key that the door closer tension is adjusted properly."

Public facilities and their management need to be proactive and review their buildings to make sure it is ADA compliant. It is important to have policy, procedure, and proper accommodations in place for everyone that could potentially visit the facility. Failure to cooperate with ADA standards could be a law suit waiting to happen. 

The enforcers

The Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy provides publications and other technical assistance on the requirements of the ADA. In addition to the Department of Labor, Four federal agencies enforce the ADA:

The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (ATBCB) issues guidelines to ensure that buildings, facilities, and transit vehicles are accessible and usable by people with disabilities.

 How to adjust the door 

Having a properly adjusted door closer is important for using StepNpull. The ADA standard of 5 pounds maximum pull-force makes using StepNpull easy. When installed on a door without the proper adjustments, more force is needed to open the door with your foot. 

The tension can easily be adjusted on the door closer with the turn of an Alan key. (Click here for full instructions on how to properly adjust the door closer, courtesy of the ADA Network.) 

  1.  Measure door opening force and closing speed

    • The best way to measure door opening force is by using a door force(pressure) gauge. To use simply push the gauge against the door until it opens. (Life Hack: You can also use a mechanical fish scale. Simply use the hook to pull the door open. The drawback is you have to read the scale while simultaneously pulling the door open.)

    • Interior doors should require no more than 5 lbs. of force to open. This does not apply to the initial force needed to overcome the weight of a motionless door. Open the door gradually; do not “jerk” it open.

    • The closing or swing speed must not be faster than five seconds.

  2. Adjust the latch or swing speed

    • Use a 1/8-inch Allen wrench or screwdriver in the appropriate screw. Turn clockwise to reduce speed, counterclockwise to increase the speed. ("S"- Swing Speed: is the adjustment for the long swing of the door, "L"- Latch Speed: adjustment for the short final swing of the door.)

  3. Further adjustments 

    • To achieve the 5 lbs. maximum force required, you may need to experiment with the swing speed and the foot or shoe adjustment. 

    • Foot or shoe adjustment: In the standard position, the mounting hole is at the normal dimension. By rotating the foot or shoe, the adjustable arm can be offset to provide a large power increase. For closers with a two-hole shoe, you can move the adjustable arm closer to the hinge side of the door, increasing the power up to 15%. With a closer with a three-hole shoe, you can increase the power up to 7.5% by moving the arm from the center position to the hinge side of the door. Moving the arm from the center position to the latch side of the door can decrease the power as much as 7.5%.
