Device Lowers Toilet Seat After You Flush
The prototype consists of a door closing cylinder with the opposing spring removed that's coupled to both the base of the toilet and the seat. It connects to the flush handle with a pull chain.
It works by gravity. As the flush handle is depressed, the chain rotates a lever on the cylinder which releases the piston rod attached to the seat. The top orifice of the cylinder is enlarged to allow more air to flow through the cylinder and its air bleed valve can be adjusted to compensate for the weight of any toilet seat.
Inventor Paul Paananen is looking for a manufacturer.
