Brass Stacker Charging Handle For Wife

Is anybody familiar with this charging handle from Brass Stacker?

My wife has a type of MD that affects her grip. She has a Glock 19 bedside gun when I'm away, and with 1 in the chamber, she probably wouldn't need to rack it, but if for some reason she did, she would be in trouble. The approach of pushing with the right hand versus pulling with the left still doesn't get it done. The long heavy pull of a revolver is also a deal breaker, so I'm sticking with the Glock.

General Glocking

Worst case is probably that the charging handle fails or pops off in which case she is no worse than she would be without it.

Experience or thoughts?

If its just for the nightstand is looks OK.

There is also another version that has a charging handle off to the side.

Will look for it can't remember the name.

I have used the side charger it works well.. I put it on for a man with severe arthritis.
It worked for him.

Also perhaps a extended mag release for making changes... And good sights so she could use them to rack the slide off a table or a belt.

If she needs a reload perhaps a new York reload.
A revolver would be going if she can pull trigger


ETA: Found it

I'll keep the ATI in mind. I'm not sure that I like that the ATI would appear to put a torquing force on the backplate when you rack the slide.
