How did we come up with THIS idea?
It all started when I was in a public restroom minding my own business.
I could sense someone watching me and sure enough, as I looked up from my iPhone (hey, don't judge -- it was taking longer than expected) I saw an eyeball looking in through the HUGE bathroom door gap between the restroom stall door and the partition.
When our eyes met there was a sense of awkwardness with a hint of embarrassment. Do I introduce myself? Do I toot out an SOS for help? I just sat there hoping this person would leave the scene so I could exit the stall and quickly wash my hands.
As I started to talk with friends and family about this problem, I quickly realized I wasn't the only one who dreaded those huge gaps. So I searched high and low (but not too low cause that's just gross) and learned far more about public restrooms than anyone who is not a contractor or an engineer should ever know.
You may be wondering what I learned?
1.) The majority of the bathrooms (restrooms) have gaps between the stall doors and the walls that range anywhere from 1/2inch to 2inches wide. Folks, this is where size DOES matter!
2.) The size, width and texture of the doors all vary. I had to create a product that would serve all of these variations, while still being small enough to fit in a pocket.
3.) These bathroom door gaps were found in airports, amusement parks, restaurants, schools, hospitals, locker rooms, gyms, truck stops, movie theaters gas stations... etc.
If your public restroom privacy is important to you, or if you want to send that special someone a funny gift, pick up a Retract-a-Gap™ (or two) and rest assured there will be no more Seein' When You're Peein! and we really hope there will be no more Snoopin' While You're Poopin'!
