Hinge helper / Spring accessories

Hinge helper

Among the gender inequality in daily life, men and women go to the toilet differently. Men often do not turn over the toilet pads, which sometimes results in urine stains. This is unhygienic and unsafe for women. Therefore, this small and easy-to-use hinge assistant has been designed to help people automatically return the toilet lid to its slow position. In this way, there is no need to turn up the toilet pad each time you go to the toilet, and only the woman needs to put down the toilet pad when using it, which makes the life of men more convenient and the life of women more clean and sanitary.
