Toilet seat hinge

Toilet seat hinge by leros Mar 10, 2011

Description

The hinge on my toilet seat broke, so I designed a new one. Its working great.

Probably not too exciting for the Thingiverse community, but I wanted to upload it anyway since its my first self-designed 3d print.

Ehrm, you clean it once in a while with water and soap (and optionally some bleach)? This is no area to be really concerned with 'bacteria'. You know, you are composed of more bacteria then human cells, and you flush millions of them each day down the sewer. The molds and yeast that can grow (too cold for bacteria usually) in this space that never comes into contact with your skin, pale in comparison to the fecal matter one futilely wipes around one's ass.

Moral of the story: humans are dirty, learn to live with it.
What do you do to guard against bacterial buildup in the small voids?
The best part is that my replacement part is actually sturdier than the original.

It's amazing how often you see toilet hinges either broken, loose, poorly designed, and/or cast out of cheap plastic. Being able to design and print your own toilet upgrade is no small feat (unless you are a regular to thingiverse)
The best part is that my replacement part is actually sturdier than the original.
