How to make a bathroom sink look like a bathroom scale: a little bathtub runner.
That’s the story behind a new toilet seat that’s been dubbed the “bathroom scale”.
A small bathroom sink can have up to a foot of weight on it and that weight could be the difference between needing to use the toilet at all or having to carry your toilet on your back.
“The idea was to make something that looks like a toilet scale, but with a smaller footprint,” says lead designer Jason Cuthbert.
“So it’s easy to carry around and the weight is less.”
The bathroom scale weighs about 30 grams, making it the lightest toilet seat currently available, says Cuthberts team, which includes architect and engineer David Dyson.
The toilet seat was designed with a curved, high-density plastic that sits above the sink.
When you bend over to touch it, you’ll see a small metal plate on the outside that is used to scale the scale.
When the seat is bent forward and you put your hand on the edge of the seat, the metal plate retracts to fit over the edge.
The seat has a weight capacity of about 10g.
This allows the seat to be mounted on the bathroom scale with just a couple of screws, says the team.
The stool The toilet scale weighs 30g, making the seat light enough to be used as a toilet seat.
It also has a flexible handle that can be bent in different directions.
The handle can be used to hold the scale up when it’s not in use, but the weight of the scale will eventually weigh the toilet seat down.
The bathroom scales used in the study were manufactured by Cuthbett, Dyson and their company, Kinko’s, and made of polypropylene and glass, respectively.
The team is also using the scale to scale its toilet seats in other cities and will be testing the new toilet seats at the International Conference on Sustainable Transportation in Sydney in November.
“It’s the first time we’ve been able to scale a toilet and it has the same strength as a normal toilet seat,” says Cothbert.
The weight of a normal bathroom scale is around 30g.
It takes around four hours to make the scale, and each seat is about 40g, so the toilet seats can be scaled up to about 40 grams.
The new toilet scale was made with a soft plastic, so it could easily be lifted out of the bathroom, and it can be folded and stored in a cupboard.
But it’s also been designed to be carried on your body, meaning you could use it in the bathroom when you need to wash or wash the toilet, and you can fold it up and carry it around with you when you’re on the toilet.

The cupboard-sized toilet seat has two handles.
Jason Cothberts design team are also working on a toilet roll holder for the toilet scales.

“We think it’s an ideal solution for people who are looking for something that’s very lightweight and easy to transport around,” he says.
Cuthbets team is currently testing the toilet roll holders in Melbourne and Adelaide, with the aim of making the toilet items in the United States and other countries available by the end of the year.
He says the scale would be ideal for people living in places where there’s a shortage of toilet seats because they can store it in a pouch, or use it for a quick shower or bath.
