Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp attempts to submit an invention, Get-A-Grip, to companies for review.

If you have ever had an unpleasant experience in a public restroom because of unsanitary conditions, then you'll be happy to learn about an innovation proposed by an inventor from Waterbury, Conn.

He created a prototype for the patent-pending Get-A-Grip to eliminate the need to touch the toilet seat or bowl when lifting or lowering the seat. It also helps keep bathroom surfaces clean and germ-free and avoid the chances of wetting or soiling the toilet seat. Besides promoting a healthier environment, it motivates male users to lift and return the seat to its original position. Furthermore it reduces the spread of disease by keeping hands sanitary and free of bacteria. Also easy to install, use and maintain, it fits any size or style of toilet seat as well as children’s toilet training seats. In addition, this convenient and practical bathroom aid is affordably priced.

The inventor's dissatisfaction with the unsanitary conditions in public restrooms inspired him to create this device. "After too often encountering dirty toilet seats," he said, "I was determined to find a way that people could avoid touching them because of the health risks involved."

The original design was submitted to the Connecticut office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
