Introduction: A Toliet Seat With Suspension

I made this for a buddy of mine for Xmas.. He's a big hunter and was tired of finding a spot in the woods or along the trail when heading to and from deer camp. Im sorry I dont have pictures for anything except the finished product.. its simple and it makes for a great conversation piece, while still flexing it purpose and functionality muscles as well

Step 1: Materials

you will need:
2" OD box (hollow square stock) -this is what slides into the Reese hitch reciever
(2x) 12" long, 1"channel or box stock
1 steel plate 1/4" thick 5" x 14"
1 toliet seat

Step 2: Welding and Final Assembly

Take the parts, and weld them together, I used 6013 Rods... they do a pretty good job for universal applications.
The channels that support the toliet seat may need to be adjust prior to welding since all toliet seats arent created equal.

once the frame is welded up, you will need to drill mounting holes in the plate, in this instance, I had to cut the top "lid" of the toliet off because It just wasnt feasible to leave it on.

Well thats pretty much it... now you have a toliet with suspension.. so you can really get into it (bouncing and stuff) its a strange sensation...

Add a big ziplock or kitchen catcher bag under the seat and you got yourself a winner! Maybe a quick and easy privacy screen too... I'm sure a lot of hunters would by far prefer a nice comfy seat to squatting in the bushes.

Just mount the seat on a 5 gallon bucket and forego the hitch and welding? But that would be an entirely different instructable. I like the hitch mount though as a bucket could tip over making a simple task awkward. And the added excitement of your hunting buddy borrowing your truck while you are on the john would add a certain edge to the operation.

I've seen a commercial version of this same item. It's a great idea for the outdoorsman who needs a comfortable seat to take care of his needs.

Erm, k. All Im saying is that it would be really akward if someone happend your way whilst you were using it.

Not really, you give them a very bemused look and snottily say excuse me but I'm in the john They get confused mostly, acting like random parts of nature are yours is always nice though, till you're on private land and it starts a feud...

Damn stupid formatting:

Lol yeah, you might want to make sure your not crapping on someones lawn before you use it.

Well it was a campsite place, not private or planned one just a common place to go, it was quite funny though...

This is fantastic fun, have you blanked out the licence plate to save your pick up's blushes:-) I am looking at the hinges, I am sure you have thoroughly tested it but is robust enough for a grown man or passing Jezza Bear in the woods to ...um..sit on...you heard me right the first time..I said sit:-)

the hinges on toilet seats don't carry weigh. Not the ones in your home nor the one here.
