The “hands-free” drawer system automatically opens and closes the drawer by using various methods of touch and remote frequency activation devices, according to the company.

It opens by using a hidden toe kick under the front of the cabinet and can be programmed to remain in the open position for a predetermined time span and then, automatically closes independently on its own. Additional opening methods are available as options including a touch sensor that is installed on or near the trash center and the drawer is activated by touching the sensor, an infrared remote unit, or a radio frequency remote.

“Along with the ease of trash management for everyday users, this product also offers operative usage for many who are limited to drawer access, for what-ever reason, and has made their drawer accessibility needs limitless,” Drawer Box Specialties founder and Helping Hands designer Glen Blankenship said in a statement.

All four methods have been developed to give the user the flexibility to choose their most convenient method of use for this unique, easy-to-use self-opening/closing trash center. The Helping Hands Trash Center uses a standard 110-volt outlet for easy plug-in installation and drawer operation.

Helping Hands fits in an 18” base cabinet and requires a 15” opening and 21” height clearance. It also requires a 110-volt outlet. The standard unit is solid maple dovetail construction. Custom materials are available upon request and the unit can be ordered with or without finish.
