Occupational Therapists Recommend Carton Caddy ®

We are very pleased to have the support of occupational therapists for the Carton Caddy® milk and juice carton handle.  Most recently we received some very positive reviews on our Amazon store, for example:

My worsening hand arthritis sent me to occupational therapy where this product was recommended. The carton caddy was well wrapped and delivered in a timely fashion.

and another similar happy customer:

This is a great product. Rheumatoid arthritis makes it painful to grip the milk cartons for lifting and pouring. This device makes my mornings much more comfortable! The product arrived promptly.

Prompt and excellence service from this seller. The products arrived quickly and I was extremely pleased with them. I would certainly buy again from this seller and highly recommend them.

Works great! My husband was so glad for the new addition.

The Carton Caddy® is not only great for the occupational therapist’s patient, but also provides an excellent opportunity for a customized promotional item for occupational therapists.  The Carton Caddy® is especially designed to carry a custom label on the front which the occupational therapist can use to promote their services.

If you are an occupational therapist please use our contact form to contact us regarding pricing and minimal volumes for a custom labeled Carton Caddy® for your practice.

You can purchase Carton Caddy® online right here in our shop, or on Amazon or eBay.

Carton Caddy® XL

The Carton Caddy® is a 1/2 gallon holder for milk and juice containers manufactured in Canada while the Carton Caddy® XL, also a 1/2 gallon holder for milk or juice, or other food products, is manufactured right here in the United States.

In addition to being available right here on our web site, we sell the Carton Caddy® on Amazon and eBay and, soon, we hope to be on the WalMart online shopping site.

We thought you’d like to read some comments our customers have been making about our products and services.  These comments have been received through eBay, Amazon and right here.

Some of us may remember a similar product from our youth. This is a GREAT device. We moved to non dairy “milks” and this has been a a hit for pick up the carton with confidence. I think every grocery should sell these in the dairy aisle; it would surely be a hit. Looking towards seeing if a smaller quart size is available, which I will purchase. For anyone with elderly, children, or someone with limited grasping — it should definitely be in your home. Love, Love it. Thanks for a wonderful product. MH

My husband has some arthritis in his hands so I got a pair of these: one for my morning coffee’s half-and-half, the other for coconut milk. What a help these are—and even for me with no hand issues. There are lots of different configurations online yet, really, none can do a better job.

I really love this item and it fits the carton snug so when you go to pour it stays put…….I hated trying to pick up a sweating carton all the time and was afraid I would drop the carton

Super well made and so easy to use thank you so much

Arthritis Sufferers

Robert Heller - President
Robert Heller – President

Arthritis sufferers know that the pain can be debilitating and very wearing.  I suffer from a little arthritis in my spine, but more importantly perhaps, I suffer from neuropathy in my left hand and forearm.  I am very glad the arthritis is not in my right hand because I am right handed.  However, I am also a musician so having the pain in my left hand is not wonderful either.

My particular neuropathy, caused by pinched nerves in my neck for which I have already had minimally invasive surgery, thanks so much Kaiser Permanente, will ease off at times leaving me feeling my hand is almost normal.  At other times it will become so severe I have to lay my hand in my lap for a few seconds for relief.  Consequently, at times my left hand can feel pretty weak.

This is where the Carton Caddy ® comes in.  I got involved in the manufacturing of the Carton Caddy, originally owned by KISS Manufacturing in Canada, precisely because I was beginning to experience neuropathic pain, although I did not know what caused the pain at that time.

A friend of mine, the designer and manufacturer of the Carton Caddy, gave me one to try.  I liked it so much I decided to offer to establish a company to market the product to the public and here we are today, ERA Enterprises.

We now have two different styles of Carton Caddy.  The original Carton Caddy, of which we have sold thousands to customers all over North America, and the newer Carton Caddy XL.

web store category picThe two products look and work a little differently.  The original Carton Caddy is light, very durable, and can be customized for private labeling, for example by dairies and the Arthritis Society.  Additionally, because of it’s design, it slips easily over the top of the 1/2 gallon milk and juice carton and when pouring provides perfect balance.  When the carton is empty you simply slide the Carton Caddy off the bottom of the empty carton and then over the top of the new one.  You can see this demonstrated on our video.

with carton cutout white background-shadow-505hx600wThe Carton Caddy XL, on the other hand, is a heavier product and looks and functions like most of the copy cat products.  We understand that there are those that feel the original Carton Caddy isn’t quite as comfortable to use as the XL.  The milk, juice or soda holder is placed onto the counter and the milk, juice, soda bottle or sugar carton is placed into the top of the Carton Caddy XL and pushed down firmly until it rests in the bottom of the holder.  While not designed for 1/2 gallon soda bottles we have a number of customers that do use the milk and juice holder for soda.  I guess it’s better than having grandkids trying to hold 1/2 gallon soda bottles!

Well, whether you suffer from arthritis, neuropathy – as I do, Parkinsons or any other medical problem, or simply want to save money each time you buy milk or juice, the Carton Caddy is the perfect accessory for your kitchen.

You can buy the Carton Caddy right here from our web site, or on Amazon or eBay.  Our payment processing is completely secured by PayPal.  We do not receive any of your payment information and do not store it as it is all handled by PayPal’s secure service.

For more information on arthritis please go to the Arthritis Foundation’s web site, on Parkinsons please go to the Parkinsons Foundation web site and for general neuropathy questions you might look at the Neuropathy Action Foundation.

The table incorporates a powerful electric motor that will raise and lower the surface in a perfectly horizontal position to whatever custom height the user determines.  Furthermore, the table has a set of inserts that provide maximum flexibility for accomodating seated position, even supplying arm rests if necessary.

Please watch the video at your convenience and contact us for further information.  We will shortly provide a product number and pricing.

Is The Glass In The Hotel Bathroom Clean ?

Really ask yourself this question:

“Is the glass in the hotel bathroom clean ?” next time you stay at a hotel or motel.  If it isn’t, do you really want to put you toothbrush into that glass ?  Are you willing to have your toothbrush fall out of the glass onto the counter ?

Simply put, absolutely not.  If you think we’re biased, well yes, we are.  We have a product available, the SteriStand, that makes it unnecessary for you to use the glass in the hotel bathroom as the place to put your toothbrush.

We had nothing to do with the making of this video but we believe that once you have watched this video you will understand why we designed and manufacture the SteriStand.
