Title: LATCHING DEVICE FOR SELECTIVELY LIFTING TOILET LID OR COMBINATION OF TOILET LID AND SEAT
Abstract:
A toilet seat and lid assembly comprising a toilet seat lid (also known as a cover) equipped with both fixed and movable grab area equipped with a lever or with a slide switch. The movable area of the grab or the slide switch integrates with the seat below through a latch. Lifting the lid by using the lever or sliding the switch, disconnects the lid from the seat and lifts only lid. Lifting the lid using the fixed grab area of the lid or without sliding the switch, does not disengage the seat and thus results in the lifting of the integrated seat and lid at the same time. Methods of using the same are also provided.
