SafeHandles Antimicrobial Sleeves and Tapes Used at U.S Open Championship 2020 

SafeHandles, an Arcata, CA company that has been dedicated since 2012 to provide non-toxic antimicrobial cleaners, was officially invited to be a part of the sanitization protocol at this year’s US 120th U.S. Open Championship. Commonly used surfaces at the tournament held at the Winged Foot Golf Club, Mamaroneck, N.Y. from September 14-20, were protected by SafeHandles EPA-compliant non-toxic antimicrobial sleeves and tapes.

Patrons and participants at the well-anticipated men’s golf tournament could rest easy as all handles and doorknobs were covered with SafeHandles adhesive tape and covers that work continuously to kill all common types of pathogens and germs. The sleeves and tapes feature a non-invasive germicide that effectively kills microbes upon contact for a 24-hour period. 

As one of the major golf annual championships, the US Open is also on the official schedule of both the PGA Tour, which ran from September 10-13. SafeHandles has served at that sporting event to facilitate a germ-free environment and continued that treatment at the US Open. 

The Local Humboldt County company shipped its premium medical-grade surface and door handle covers to the US Open in New York to help eliminate the spread of germs. The antimicrobial sleeves and adhesive tapes installed on handles supplemented existing hygiene procedures to ensure a safer environment. Additionally, they are eco-friendly, odorless, and dry to touch.


SafeHandles is committed to eliminating germs in all types of facilities. Shipping is offered worldwide via the SafeHandles website, at
