It’s the little things in life
A toilet seat hinge, even a fully functional precision injection molded one, isn’t sexy – it just serves a purpose.
I like leros’ toilet seat hinge for a lot of reasons. It reminds me of what it was like to own a 3D printer for the first time. Window latches, replacement toy parts: I replaced anything I could.
I also like it because replacing something as simple as a broken toilet seat hinge is actually a big deal. It’s the kind of home repair that is both easy and time consuming all at once. Once you have the piece of plastic in hand, it’s easy to swap it out. However, it’s such a small task that it will sit on a honey-do list forever, as it gets eclipsed by more pressing matters. And yet, it’s really a quality of life issue. Sitting on a wobbly toilet seat is not a fun experience.
I’m pretty sure it’s also a first of its kind on Thingiverse. I certainly hope it won’t be the last. I would love to see a hundred different designs for mundane things like toilet hinges. Imagine: your toilet seat hinge breaks, so you bust out your smart phone and snap a picture, the five most appropriate designs pop up, and can be sent to your 3D printer. 1 2 3
