Our Story & Inspiration

Hi! I'm Cindy Covington, co-creator of The Potty Protector. I wanted to take a quick second to fill you in on the background and inspiration for my husband and I creating The Potty Protector.

I had just finished potty training my 2 year old when tragedy struck our family. Our little 4 year old, Conner, who filled our home with sunshine and dinosaur roars was ran over by an SUV. He died instantly. Needless to say, this horrible accident turned our happy home upside down. This threw everyone off course, especially our little 2 year old, Crew, who just lost his roommate and best buddy. He completely regressed in potty training and this is where our idea of the Potty Protector began. 

Not only was I cleaning up the normal overspray that simply happens from boys using the toilet, but now I was cleaning up puddles from Crew simply not aiming at all! It got to the point where I'd hear him get up in the middle of the night and I'd run to catch him before he urinated all over the back of the toilet, puddling around the base of the toilet and into my baseboard.

My husband, after hearing all my complaints about how our boys were completely ruining our bathroom, went out into the garage and hours later came back with a make shift Potty Protector and set it on the toilet. I walked by the bathroom and it caught my eye. I started laughing! It was an old, gray stained paint bucket sitting in my nice bathroom that I had just finished steam cleaning! 

The Results

I honestly didn't think much of it until the next morning when I went into the bathroom and was shocked to see it was still clean! No urine puddles! There wasn't even any overspray from my tall teenagers! This was a MIRACLE!! I got out my black light to really test it out and everything was totally clean! I was AMAZED!!! This simple little invention made my life so much easier! My boys even loved it, because it was easy to take off and put back on (even for my 2 year old). And when it came time for their turn to clean the bathroom, it made it so much easier and less nauseating. The smell of urine was gone! Since we have had the potty protector I have not sat in my kids urine once! Ha! Ha! (I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one!)

A Confidence Booster

The primary use of the potty protector is to make your bathroom more sanitary and easier to clean. However, another great benefit is the confidence that it provides to those from using it. Not just only for kids potty training, but we’ve heard such great comments from parents with disabled kids finding MORE independence, or people caring for elderly men who are struggling to KEEP their independence.

We dedicated years to creating the simplest and most practical device possible. We cut out all the bells and whistles and focused solely on functionality. After multiple trial and error sessions we finally hit the jackpot.

One-of-a-kind Design

The Potty Protector is one of a kind in design and concept. It appeals to boys of all ages and doesn't look "out of place" in your bathroom. Cleaning is very minimal. The plastic has been infused with a slip agent that causes liquid to shed easily. Only needing to be rinsed or wiped down occasionally.

We designed it to store easily on the floor in front of your toilet so it is out of the way yet easily accessible.

Exclusive Memorial Accessory

When our sweet Conner died, our little town rallied around us by making dinosaur stickers for our high school football helmets, car windows, and anywhere else you could place a sticker. This was all done in remembrance of our little guy who loved dinosaurs more than anything! In fact, he walked around mimicking a T-Rex about 90% of the time, roaring and stomping everywhere he went. So in honor of him, we have exclusive green vinyl dinosaur stickers to put on your very own Potty Protector!

Risks and challenges

We have spent a lot of time and money to take The Potty Protector from an idea to a physical product that is production ready. We have developed the first models and have the molds created. The final step to getting production up and running is to put in the first orders from the factory.

There are trials and tribulations in every business especially for a brand new start up like ours. We have put in the extra time and effort and are confident that we have the team and infrastructure we need to fulfill our duty and reward our backers. Thank you for believing in us.
