Mail bagA lady wheelchair user had difficulty in picking up her mail from the floor. A conventional mail basket was not suitable as the door opened against a wall on which there were several coat hooks.

A cloth bag was fixed to a back plate with two hinged arms that fold in when the door is opened against the coats hanging from the hooks. A length of thin elastic was added between the right hand side arm and the doorframe, to return the bag to the open position when the door is closed.

The lady does not now have to pick up her mail with a helping hand.
