Pedal mechanism can be integrated into the common flush toilet. When in use, step on the pedal to open the lid then lift up the seat. In this way, you can avoid the bacteria contamination due to direct contact with toilet seat. Meanwhile, the mechanism not only makes it easier to raise the toilet seat and provides convenience for men to urinate, but also gives better consideration to women.
Step I: step on the pedal and open the lid.
Step II: step on the pedal again to lift up the seat.
Step III: step on the pedal for a third time, both the lid and seat will drop back.
