Larsen suspected that the seemingly decorative part of the paper towel holder, one of the arms, was there for more than aesthetic reasons.

In a video testing her theory out, she placed a sheet of paper towel between the two clip-like figures of the holder and was able to pull the sheet off with no effort.

People in the comments were astonished by the revolutionary find.

“I can’t even find the words to explain how much my mind is blown,” one user wrote.

“So that actually had a function. Huh,” another added.

“What the actual… I’m almost 40 and just now learning this?!” someone exclaimed.

Someone struck a comparison: “It’s like the doohiky at the grocery store for the plastic produce bags.”

“How DARE they not explain this on the packaging,” one user joked.


Another jokester added: “I literally am not living the right way. Am I even breathing right??”

And someone compared it to a common office item: “It’s literally a giant paper clip.”

In a viral video, the woman behind the TikTok account shared just how the surprising life hack works.

Using her foot, she simply slid the metal stopper underneath the door to hold it open. And just like that, the hack was in full action.
