During these days, where everyone is on high alert to stop the spread of germs, a tool like this could not be more useful. The Koala Grip has a unique shape that locks on to the subway pole for you. It’s 3D printed right here in Toronto, and it’s got an ergonomic design that suitable for all hand sizes. The strong, secure grip is perfect for even the bumpiest subway rides.
