About Us

A letter from the founders:

Our story begins with friendship, ice-cold pilsner, and the graffiti covered bathrooms of the Big Apple.

We met as young product designers in New York, and were known to frequent the various downtown watering holes that make the city so special. But after rushing out of one too many nasty bathrooms, an idea struck: create a product that would make touching the toilet seat a thing of the past.

Six weeks later, we launched theshandle.com and began selling our unique toilet seat handle to the world.

Fast forward to present day: we now run our own product development company, we are both new parents with potty training on the horizon, and the Shandle has evolved to be more useful than we ever imagined. 

Our little bathroom hack can be found in suburban houses, city apartments, children’s bathrooms, college dorms and nursing homes. No matter where it's used, the Shandle endures as a simple idea that makes the bathroom just a little better for everyone. We know you will enjoy having it in your home.

Happy flushing!

Topher and Dave
