how to make a dustbin stand with a foodpedal to lift the lid? Answered

the purpose of  this question is that sometimes your hands is full of rubbish then you need something to open the lid for you.  Think of a stand to put the dustbin in and a mechanism that can open the lid for you.


How about doing something like this.  Use your own judgment on materials, size, finish etc.

I would move the fulcrum much closer to the pedal in order for the lid to completely clear the top of the can.

Probably. I did not do any measuring or calculations. I usually build something and fiddle with it until it works.

But if you try to make it move too far it's going to be much harder to lift.
