Fastener operated by foot

Fastener operated by foot

Fastener operated by foot

(OP)
Hi. I am looking for a fastener that can replace a normal bolt and screw, but I need it to be able secure/unsecure it with your foot. Is there anything like that? Lazy operators complain about having to bolt a bar holder with 6 bolts so I am looking for something faster and convenient. Any idea? Thanks

RE: Fastener operated by foot

It would seem to me that it would be much faster to bolt or unbolt something with the hands, for the simple reason of greater dexterity and more precise manipulation. Is this just a case of them simply wanting to avoid the effort of bending over or crouching in order to perform the operation?

It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.

alibabaaaa,

Look into toggle clamps. These either are operable by foot, or you can design something based on them that is operable by foot.
