AutoClose

For every woman who has nagged her spouse to put down the seat cover or every man who didn’t think it was his job (because she didn’t lift it after she was done,) there is a solution. Pressalit’s AutoClose features infrared sensors that keeps the cover open when someone is in the room and quietly closes it when he/she leaves.
