The Extended Toilet Flush Handle

Originator.....Tom Jeary

E-mail......tlj@golden.net


THE PROBLEM:  The person, with severe arthritis, did not have enought strength to turn the flush handle on the toilet

THE SOLUTION: By simply extending the handle length from its current 2 inches or so to 12-14 inches you increase the leverage to the point where it would be easy to turn with very little strength required. The extention can be put in place with screws, bonded with epoxy or simple taped on.
