ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
FYI: These cost around $20 HKD at local stores in HK, I have no idea whether this product is copyrighted or whatever, but 13 pounds’ just a tad expensive for my taste.
For those asking about size:
“Size: 33 x 16.5 x 11.5cm.”
For inch people, that’d be 13 x 6.5 x 4.5. The tube is supposed to taper though, and I’m sure the measurement includes the cap. I’d say.. it would probably best fit a standard TP roll if you first used 1/4 to 1/2 of the roll from #1′s preferred stationary position.
I want one. But taking the toilet paper away from a fixed position in the bathroommeans I’d lose the tube somewhere, and end up s**t creek, so to speak.
thats really a cool idea.
i’m dying to get a sense of scale for these. i wish they were sitting next to a standard roll of toilet paper. it reads like a whole roll fits inside the fat end of the tube, but if so, the paper coming out of the end looks too big.
The link gives dimensions. 33 x 16.5 x 11.5cm
Just by eyeballing it here I’d say the roll fits into the black cap. The rest is non functional.
At those dimensions, if it was just in the cap what tissue they show coming out would be the extent of the roll…
“You simply unvelcro the tail of the tube and slip in a loo roll (small ones fit the best), poke the end through the cap, and hey presto, you’ve got yourself a highly original and practical tissue dispenser”
Sounds like it fits inside the actual tube part, in the thick end.
ASKFREEHERE IS A SPAMMER
Knowing my family, they’d probably pick up the one that says “toothpaste” and try to put it on their toothbrush. http://pixblix.com
