ABSTRACT
This invention relates to a device which renders it impossible for the user to stand upon the privy-seat; and consists in the provision of rollers on top of the seat, which, although affording a secure and convenient seat, yet, in the event of an attempt to stand upon them, will revolve, and precipitate the user on to the floor.
