Looks good.

Advice, eh? OK, here is some advice. Put it in your bathroom, where it can be easily reached. :yes4:
Not such a smart*** reply as might be thought - the holder in my older son's bathroom is situated so you almost have to be a contortionist to reach it. So, his toilet paper generally sits on top of the sink cabinet, where it can actually be reached.

Not only is that a first-class holder--the paper is hung over the top like it should be!!l
There are several very good reasons to hang the paper over the back, rather than the front:
1. If you have little kids, and/or cats, they tend to bat at the roll, and will roll the whole thing off if it hangs down the front. Hanging down the back just makes it turn.
2. It is easier to rip a section of paper off when it is hanging down the back, if it hangs down the front it often just keeps on spinning, dumping paper on the floor.
3. If you have to rewind paper on the roll, it is a lot quicker and easier to bat the roll and have the paper roll back up, then to have to roll it back on a roll with it hanging down the front.
4. If you don't have little kids, still a good idea to hang it down the back, just in case you get company and they have a small kid(s) along.

gThere are probably some other perfectly good reasons to hand it down the back, but I can only think of one more just now.
It totally irritates some people if you turn the roll so the paper hangs down the back instead of the front. :lol: :dance3:

Which way over or under
When using corn cobs you require three. Two red, one white. You use a red one first, then a white one - to see if you need to use the second red one. :)

ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requires that the paper be rolled over the top to the front. Folks with disabilities and/or limited use of their hands find this to be the preferred method.

just sayin' :)
Never heard that one before. Interesting. Especially interesting because I've been on 100% disability since '96, and found that the paper over the back is much easier on me overall.

Theo,,, I've done quite a bit of ADA related work last few years.. I guess the thinking is that someone who may have had a stroke, or very limited use of their hand, can "paw" at the paper. When its hung over the front, it makes it easier to access.
Yeah, I guess I can see where some people could feel that way. Myself, I would find it just as easy, or easier, to kind of bat up, with the back of my hand.

Do me a favor. Ask some of those who have had a stroke or limited hand use, which way they think would be better, or if they think they would be the same - explaining how over the back would be easier to rewind too. I'm thinking probably no one has asked before, and the 'thinking' was thought by someone with no disability - which happens way too often, in my book.
Thanks.
