The Main Drain, A Simple Urinal Attachment for Home Toilets

Published by:

The Main Drain is an adjustable urinal that can be attached to an existing toilet. The urinal attaches to the toilet bowl (no tools are necessary) and can be used even when the toilet lid is down. An articulating hose allows it to be adjusted to different heights and orientations, and it is made of hydrophobic materials to ensure easy cleaning. The easy-to-clean aspect is key, since the device appears to be near face level for someone seated on the toilet. The Main Drain’s creator, inventor Dan Garvin, is raising funds for the urinal on Kickstarter.
