Main Drain Home Urinal Is The Solution To Men Leaving The Toilet Seat Up

An olive branch for bathroom gender wars.

How many times have you yelled at your significant other to "Put the toilet seat down!"? We're guessing it's far more than you can count. One guy has a solution for that -- sort of. But first a warning: It isn't pretty.

Introducing the Main Drain, an at-home urinal that attaches to your toilet and, wait for without lifting the toilet seat up.

Consider this an olive branch in the bathroom gender wars.

The gist of this "adjustable" john is that it's easy to move (it clips on to the edge of the bowl), eliminates male "splashing" around the bowl area and is relatively easy to clean. Main Drain was developed by Daniel Garvin, a self-described serial entrepreneur from Utah, who personally aspired to have a urinal in his home at the tender age of 16.

Of course, at-home urinals already exist, but with a motto like "Pee. Free." the Main Drain is definitely our fave.

Check out the video above to see how it works, and Garvin's Kickstarter page where he's aiming to raise $50,000 in order to bring the Main Drain to a bathroom near you this summer.
