Giz Wiz Video of the week #1 -- from the National Hardware Show 2013.
At the National Hardware Show 2013, I met Big John. Big John was showing his Big John Comfort Seats, which are oversized toilet seats designed to fit any round or elongated toilet. At first it sounded like a joke, but Big John explained that the oversized seats are ideal for larger framed people, senior citizens, or anyone who might be physically impaired. Being a good salesman Big John added it’s also great for anyone who just wants a sturdier, more comfortable toilet seat. And talk about sturdy – Big John Comfort Seats are rated for over 1200-pounds. It‘s 2” higher than a standard toilet seat and 19” from side to side. There are three models; the most expensive comes with stainless steel hinges. Big John pushed on the seat to show how the stabilizing bumpers grip the bowl to eliminate any shifting. It’s simple to install, with a wrench or pliers, just as you install any standard toilet set. It’s ADA compliant and made in the USA. They’re available to Amazon for $65 to about $130 models depending on the model.
