The Main Drain: A Urinal Attachment For At-Home Toilets

February 3, 2015


This is the Kickstarter for the Main Drain, a urinal attachment for at-home toilets. The $45 piece of plastic clamps on to the side of a regular shitter (no tools except your peenor required!) and allows the user to piss with the confidence they're still soaking the floor trying to hold their penis with one hand and text with the other. Personally, I'm not ashamed to admit I always pee sitting down at home. It's more relaxing. Plus it makes peeing like, more of an event. Now if you really want to make sure guys don't hose the floor you need to check out this bad boy -- a VACUUM-POWERED urinal (technically a vacuum powered external catheter). I based it on the technology used by NASA's space toilets. You just stick your penis in the end of the vacuum tube, push the button, and PRESTO: not a drop of urine on the floor. I even made a prototype using the motor from my Dyson but I'm scared to try it because I'm pretty sure it'll suck my balls out.

Keep going for the Kickstarter video with such solid sound bites as, "I found that nine out of ten guys that I talked to wished that they wished they had a urinal in their home. But the sad reality is that less than 1% of them will ever get one."

    Hmmm. Found this item on Odditymall. No longer available. I wonder if it didn't go over well? Bummer

    Hey nay-sayers. I've got three "men" using my guest bathroom right now. Two of them (young men) are 6'3" and 6'6". Oh, and they're lazy. They're so lazy, they won't take the time it takes to sit down to urinate. (that's a long way down.) They would NOT pick up a jug, use it, pour it out and rinse. "Their" idea of cleaning the bathroom is ... well... pointless. And I'm disabled. I have a housekeeper once a week. She lost the battle. I think this gizmo might be the answer to my nightmare. And hopefully, it's a lot cheaper than a urinal. I have little money and no space. This is exactly what I've been looking for online for three days! But I CAN'T wait for them to come up for sale! My bathroom smells worse than the streets of San Francisco! So I'm going to try some other ideas until this whatchamajigee "Main Drain" comes out. Hopefully I can get a handle on this before I have to start sharing my own private bathroom with my "real" guests! I'm a frustrated Gramma! PS I'm "training" these young men for the real world, they're working, paying rent, etc., but too many issues at once, so I have to pick my battles... (it's like I found two boys who grew up with wolves.) JUST KIDDING!

    Did some more research. This item never made it to the store shelves! Didn't raise enough money on Kickstarter and was closed down in 2015. Did he give up? I guess. ;'-(

  • I'm happy with existing toilet, no need this one.

    Ahhhh I'd rather sit down like a bitch to piss than put one of these in my bathroom.

  • kevin

    Ah yes. Now I can miss the urinal in the comfort of my own home.

  • Fred

    First of all this should be called the 'Man Drain' instead. Secondly why would you buy this when you have a perfectly good sink?

  • Ed

    How is this different than just peeing in the toilet?

    Great idea until somebody tries to poop in it. No way gravity is going to help with that.

  • WhiteEagle2

    I don't understand why the chose that shape. The flat bottom of it seems like it would create a lot of splatter. Why not just a funnel?

  • Andyman7714

    That is the funniest stupid idea I ever saw.

  • aldenscott

    All I see is an increased chance for pee spatter and the very real possibility of residue buildup in the device itself. It probably smells like death after a few uses.

  • lordpikachu

    so...a funnel?

  • Jenness

    Deleted, other posters already noticed the pee funnel would be right at someone's face level and the complete disgusting grossness of this idea.

    If you can't hit a huge toilet bowl size opening how the hell do you think drunks, college kids and most sleepy guys are going to be able to hit that incredibly smaller opening????

  • Smurfet

    Sometimes men have physical problems that cause them to splay when they pee. My hubby has that now & that's why he pees into a vase then pours it into the toilet.

  • Jenness

    Why not just have one of those cheap portable urinal things they give dude's in the hospital? That sounds a lot better than a vase-which are hard to clean usually. These are only .79 cents so you could have several and then throw them out when they get stinky http://www.vitalitymedical....

    That's what she said.

    "Invented" by someone who's never actually cleaned a toilet.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    C'mon, at least have the main drain of the Main Drain go down to somewhere near the average water level of a toilet!

    But I guess they didn't want to have to worry about poo getting on it... now I'm no longer so sure it's the WORST design.
