Northeast Ohio’s Moen Inc. has devised a simple way to keep a hand towel at your fingertips, not on the bathroom floor or the kitchen counter.

Moen’s Retractable Towel Ring is attached to a cord that lets you pull the towel toward you to dry your hands while it’s still attached to the ring, and then pulls the towel and ring back into place automatically when you’re done. The retractable cord extends 11 inches from the wall-mounted base.

The ring comes in a chrome, brushed nickel or oil-rubbed bronze finish to coordinate with your existing fixtures.

The Retractable Towel Ring is available at Lowe’s stores and from wholesale distributors. Suggested retail price is $24.
