Toilet Guard products help keep homeowner's toilets clean and unused during construction or remodeling. Each one includes a locking mechanism
FREE SHIPPING ON TOILET GUARD ITEMS!

Our exclusive line of toilet covers offer multiple benefits, including toilet protection and preventing useage during construction or remodeling. Each cover comes with it's own locking mechanism as a deterrent from removing the cover.
I find this thing kind of funny, not sure if they are selling it for GCs to lock the toilet from subs, or for homeowners to lock their toilet from everybody!

It could lead to worse problems on a new construction site. I remember years ago when the boss told us to make sure no one was taking a dump in the sump pits. The plumbers were getting awfully pissed about it! Can't say I blame them!

I once seen that someone had hung their back side over the crawl entrance and did a number 2 and use insulation to wipe. I but their back bottom side was on fire . I told the builder to have it removed and limed if he wants me to go in there. Some people are sick!

I'm pretty sure that if Chico and Hector need to take a dump, you'd find a fresh pile right on top of the toilet guard.

I much rather have contractors pee in the toilet than on the yard or pee in a cup and dump in on the yard.

Do they have one that goes over the bathroom sink....how about the shower?

I agree.

I'm no GC but if I was this would be something that I would definitely use to keep slobs out of my customers bathrooms. Of course if you do that there better be a port-a-john on the site. Those things are a nightmare though when u have to take a dump. Ughck!

Right! Nothing worse than a job site with no bathroom facilities whatsoever. Nearly inhuman.

Looks like a nice, vinyl dropcloth made to go right over the crapper. Perfect for a repaint.

I thought it was required by law to have restroom facilities? God knows I much prefer "home base" , but sometimes There's no choice.

Yep like 4 guys can wiz at once in the tub. I took a squirt off a roof once but it was dark.

The rentals Ive worked in there was no need for a toilet guard, you would have to pay me $100 just for me to let my cheeks touch those nasty things. Then Id have to scrub my butt with those alcohol wipes.
