Wash your hands and stay safe

During these times of social isolation, due to Covid-19, Shelley is continuing to garden, as long as it is safe to do so.

Staying away from people, in her job, is not difficult however, she may not always know what her customers have touched in their gardens. She needed to be able to wash her hands. To that end, her Defender now has a hand gel dispenser.

I designed and 3D printed a simple holder that easily hooks on the dash.

Printed in two halves to avoid the need for masses of supports.

It has a simple joint formed of an arc, 10mm wide by 1mm deep.

It slides together like a dovetail joint but does not have an overhang so it can be easily 3D printed without supports.

It's printed in PLA, for ease and speed, so it won't survive hot sun in the car for a prolonged period. Hopefully we won't be in 'lockdown' for so long that it matters.
