#1 - Clips to Make Paper Towel Mask - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4219552
These handy little clips can be kept in your car in case you accidentally forget to bring a mask with you and you need an "emergency" mask solution. All you need to make the mask is a napkin or paper towel, these clips, and something to use as the ear elastics like hair ties or rubber bands. They are quick to print, so print out a bunch and stick them in your glove compartment for when you need them.
#2 - Ponytail Earsaver - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4329529
If you have long hair, the typical earsaver can be tricky to use because it either gets lost in your thick hair or has to be awkwardly placed due to your ponytail. This earsaver solves those problems. It's the perfect solution if you have to have your hair up for work and are required to wear a mask.
#3 - Mask Sewing Pleat Jig - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4261753
Sewing masks has never been faster than with this pleat jig. It prints very fast and will save you lots of time if you are making tons of masks. It also makes the pleats perfectly every time - which is more than I can say about my previous masks!
#4 - Ventilator Valve - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4235374
Has your local hospital put out a request for ventilator valves? You can help your community by printing and donating valves.
#5 - Fog-Free Glasses Piece - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4303905
If you have made or purchased masks that don't have a nose wire, you need to print up this fog-free glasses piece. It fits on any mask to help it fit better and will eliminate foggy glasses. This one is adult-sized. For a child-size, you should reduce the print by 20%
#6 - Unicorn Horn Face Shield - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4325566
Add a little whimsy into your day with this face shield that has a unicorn horn! This shield is completed with a clear plastic sheet that you can get at any office supply store. Perfect for anyone who works in a setting with kids, i.e. daycare or school.
#7 - Mask Strap Bias Tape Maker - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4263896
Not everyone likes the mask style that uses elastic straps. Some people prefer the kind that ties behind the head. Why waste your money buying tiny packs of bias tape at the store? Make your own with this handy bias tape maker!
#8 Cap Face Shield Clips - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4303690
Make any regular baseball cap into a face shield with these clips! If you prefer the look and comfort of a baseball hat instead of the typical shield, then these clips are for you. Three clips and a plastic sheet are all you need to make your favorite cap into a face shield.
#9 - Door Opening Button Pusher - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4255283
This handy little device can be used for quite a few tasks such as pushing elevator buttons, opening doors, and more - all without you having to touch any extra surfaces. This file also includes a holster for your new button-pushing tool.
