Life can be much easier and much more livable sometimes with simple ideas, even if it means that it is not confused with its simple dictionary meaning, which is easy to understand or do, and not complicated. Thinking simple is sometimes the shortest way… living simple is sometimes the most delicious. If we say simple ideas are a product of intelligence, we wouldn’t be exaggerating …
Covid-19 has brought many products, devices and disciplines to our lives. There are many methods we use to protect against viruses. Of course, in addition to being psychologically affected, our body is also physically affected. The disinfectants we use irritate our hands due to the alcohol they contain, the rubber of the masks make our back of the ears injured, the face shields increase our sweating rate… unfortunately we have to learn to live with these precautions. This necessity leads to the development of freezes and new inventions. We would like to tell you about a simple but effective invention to reduce the effects of masks on the ears and behind the ears… mask buckles…
Many of us discovered these mask buckles at the beginning of the pandemic, making it easier for us to use masks in different designs with different diameters and different colors. Mask buckles have been a great help to the health warriors fighting in the front line, especially in the pandemic.
According to some, it was invented by a young scout in Canada and started to be printed with a 3D printer. According to some, production lines were changed by plastic companies and produced as mass production in injection machines. Regardless of how and in what form it came about, this simple but effective idea is a savior, especially for those who have to wear this mask for 12-20 hours during mask use. With the mask buckle, it is much easier to put on and take off the mask. At the same time, the masks are prevented from making pressure in the neck or ear area. Thanks to the elastic design, it takes the shape of the neck and back of the head. Multiple rubber mounting feet on the apparatus allow you to use your mask at the desired tension. The apparatus can be washed and disinfected by hand.
The material type determines the weight and elastic structure of the mask buckle. Mask buckles produced in 3D printers or mass production are different due to the type of material. More important than the type of material, the plastic raw material used is of the desired quality and meets the health standards.
During the pandemic, simple ideas will continue to be included in our lives and make our daily lives easier with plastic applications. As these simple ideas emerge from the younger generations, it is impossible not to think that the future is in safe hands.
