Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-04-04

End the blame-game for leaving the toilet seat up and use the Seatswing Hands-Free Toilet Seat. This amazing device lifts and lowers without your hands. That’s right – a simple tap with your knee and this toilet seat moves with precision. The unique design of the Seatswing uses the force of a single tap to lift and lower. Coming in all white, the Seatswing is compatible with all types of toilets. In addition, is uses high-quality Duroplast. This material is known in the toilet seat industry for its durability and strength. Easy to operate, both men and women can use the Seatswing with confidence. And, best of all, you don’t have to worry about touching the seat again. Additionally, the construction of the Seatswing makes it easy to clean. Installation is also a breeze and takes just minutes.

Hi Maarten, this is just a phase in getting the seatswing into the market. Don't give up, just see it as an interesting learning curve! And it is great to see your backers still believe in your product and therefore in you.
Ahaha!
Sorry, I mean seat, not sit ;P
Ahaha!
Hi Creator. Well, the toilet is a gray area where I have see many interesting amenities to bury them self. You have to convince the people to have better hygiene instead of wasting time with the PlayStation. It is not your fault, it is the careful politics of the government applied in the social behavior. :P Just don't give up!

One consideration... If you try Indiegogo, don't count with me. It is a den of thieves. I do not back any project there. About your project, I don't like too much the idea of a universal sit. For you, the maker, is great. But in some of your pictures, it doesn't fit very well (like the sit bigger that toilet above this lines). It is notorious, and I would be more comfortable buying sits for all my toilets if you guarantee an elongated sit for elongated toilets. If not, I would need to test first with a sample (single item), and you probably would lose the momentum of the sale. On the other hand, producing 4 models. Might not be the best idea. I think that you would need some investigation to cover not all the toilet shapes available, but just the most used by people with enough money to spend in that kind of amenities (for me, the elongated).
In other words, I think is wrong the usage of the universal sit because you try to cover more clients with different toilets that the majority of clients with a certain model (like the elongated). At the end of the day, the minority of clients with award toilets will never be your clients because is the kind of toilets that buy people not interested in upgrading the toilet.
At the end of the day you might be hurting your own product trying to make it universal, instead of tailored for an specific shape. One more thing. Creators don't fully understand the sin of using Stretch Goals. For me, when you say that a feature will be a stretch goal, I think... well, this might be something indispensable, so I better try to get it for sure somewhere else. Finally, you had some feedback. Don't come again with a project that only you love, but no one tried to destroy it with critics. Sorry, I'm the annoying supebacker, but eventually you'll get more and better ideas from me than the others.

Thank you for this Chiman! It means a lot :) We have tried to address this question in our latest update. We feel a lot of enthousiasm for Seatswing, but we have problems reaching backers with our marketing strategy/material. At this moment, we have not given up on our product and are still trying to make Seatswing a success!! We will keep you posted on this Chimon!
Chiman Choi
So sad. How come not more people like this project?
Seatswing
Hi Ahaha! The current model can lift the cover as well. I will check the slowclose possibilities. We are considering putting this in a stretch goal. In case we do not
reach the stretch (so also not the financial capability), we will regime you. Gr Maarten
Ahaha!
Seatswing, what I like about your design is the novelty, simplicity, and unintrusivity. Unfortunately, I consider that if the cover cannot be lifted together with the seat, then the purpose is not fulfilled. Also, If the cover could not be redesigned for slow closing, I would consider it a downgrade, not upgrade from my actual seat. You have a working prototype, and you may have the interest to include these functionalities in your product. However, I'm pretty sure that you won't compromise the production of the actual design, if they delay too much, or are very expensive to produce, etc. So, do I have your word that you'll instantly issue a full refund of 100% in the event that you would conclude not feasible to build it this way, even if I have not requested the refund? Thanks

4. Unfortunately, in the current model, this is not yet possible as the springs are not strong enough. However, we are thinking about incorporating this in the model. At this moment you will have to open the cover with your hands.
5. You can count it in terms of cycles. The springs should last over 100.000 cycles (opening&closing). Given you would use it 10 times per day * 350 days, you would use it 3500 times/per year. If you would use it 30 years you would reach over 100.000 cycles after which it could not work as effective as before. This is longer than most other modern house appliances.
6. We are in close contact with Dutch manufacturers of toilet seats. As you can imagine we have not yet decided to place an order with them. However, if Seatswing gets produced, we will use the best quality material. Seatswing is made from Duroplast plastic which is considered to keep its color over a long period of time. It is used by the best toilet seat brands.
7. That's an easy one. Yes, it is :)
Ahaha!
Thank you Creator. I have more questions... 4. I see in your videos that you start with the cover open in vertical position. What I don't see, is if Seatswing can lift both parts at the same time, the plastic seat, and the plastic cover from horizontal position? Is it strong enough to tho this job? 5. Also what is the expected life of the product? Do you count it in opening/closing cycles or months/years? 6. All plastics exhibit some coloration or discoloration over time, heat, or humidity. What about the plastic That you'll use. 7. The bathroom is a very humid place. Is Seatswing oxidation resistant?
Seatswing
Hi Ahaha, Thank you for these questions and thank you for backing me! I will add them to the Q&A, others might be wandering this as well. 1. This is a difficult one. Seatswing is designed, so that it's easy for cleaning and can therefore be easily removed to get underneath the seat. What you can do is glue the toilet seat on top of the hinges so it's stuck to the hinges. You are still able to remove it with tools from underneath the seat, but that will be a lot harder. For your information, you can also clean Seatswing similar as a normal toilet seat. 2. You will receive the whole thing including the cover. The toilet seat closes slowly, so it doesn't make a clapping sound. The cover is currently not slow closing at the moment, but we can take this into consideration. I will let you know whether we can modify that bit easily, 3. Yes, Seatswing can be easily installed on almost every toilet. The flexible seat hinges give Seatswing this flexibility. You can easily fit it on your toilet :) Hope this helps and I will update the Q&A with these questions. Best regards! Maarten
Ahaha!
Hi Seatswing.

1. I want this product for using in a rent apartment. Usually clients are nice people, but some times they try to steal anything they can. If I create a metallic box below the toilet to prevent untighten the handles, is it easy to remove Seatswing from the top? 2. As I understand, Seatswing completely replaces the actual plastic seat and plastic cover, like one piece assembled. My actual seat is soft closing. If it falls from the vertical position, it'll close slowly to prevent a loud annoying clapping sound. Is Seatswing soft closing in both parts, the plastic seat, and the plastic cover too? Or is it an add-on between the seat and the toilet? 3. The size of my plastic seat is 46cm by 36cm, like the forth shape of your examples from left to right. Will Seatswing work for me? Best regards!

Aaaai!! We were thinking about a black one, but decided it would be better to stick with one color to keep production costs as low as possible. However, when (!) we reach our funding goal, we will take your preference in mind. In case we decide to do black toilet seats, we will surely give you one Elrik!
Eirik Lutro
A black color version would have been great!
Seatswing
Yes, currently only the white color. However, we are thinking about a black option. What color would you like Sam?
Sam chu
How about the colour? Only white colour available?
Jelle RV
Great idea, a product which truly enhances the hygiene level within your daily life
Seatswing
