Sink device is a finger saver

Dispose-it-Guard is designed to keep fingers out of the garbage disposal.

The device is a sink stopper with a built-in tool for pushing food into the disposal. A twist of a handle opens holes to turn the stopper into a strainer, which helps keep small items from being dropped into the disposal accidentally. The pushing tool doubles as a food scraper.

The device fits InSinkErator, Sears Kenmore and Badger disposals. It does not fit General Electric or Waste King products.

Dispose-it-Guard sells for $16.95 plus shipping at
