Problem Area: how to remove hair and other dirt most easily from shower drain cover.
Another issue is that hairs knot up since it get stuck in a closed passage.
Solution: In this concept the grill can be opened fully up on one side and all the hair and dirt can be easily wiped sideways. It has two parts an injection molded plastic grill and a 8mm round glass cap. The grill part sits snugly on the 2mm stainless steel plate will not move even when the cover is stepped on.
The plastic part could also house simple electronics, battery powered sensors or lights to convey telemetrics or for example to give out an alert if the drain is clogged.
