The SmartNudge, a battery-operated device for the household toilet, ensures that the toilet seat is always returned to its lowered position after use. The unit contains a sensor which automatically detects when the seat has been raised. After a period of 90 seconds an arm extends and gives the toilet seat a flick, allowing gravity to take over and lower it the rest of the way.
Manufactured in the Czech Republic, the SmartNudge is claimed to remain operational for 18 months before the batteries require changing. Four slam stoppers ensure that the seat descends slowly even on a unit without a soft-close lid and an optional mounting kit allows the user to attach the device using magnets if preferred.
