About

The ZeNa Attachment Story

We all know of that person that always fails to change out the toilet paper roll. They'll leave the empty roll on the holder and put a brand new one on top of the toilet or counter. The ZeNa attachment will solve that bad habit. 

We interact with toilet paper holders on a daily basis. It's always been the cumbersome spring tube design. With the ZeNa attachment, you can change a roll out in a matter of seconds. It's faster, easier and cleaner than the traditional spring tube method. 

Design

Our patent pending design is an easy attachment to add to your existing toilet paper holder. No need to hire a contractor. The heavy duty double-sided foam tape on the underside of the base is super strong. Simply stick this on to your clean existing holder and you're good to go. Both sides are the same so there's no getting this wrong.

The arms always fall back into place from a tension mechanism that forces the arms downward. So it doesn't matter if your ZeNa Attachment is not level as long as you have installed it properly, it will work. 

Although our prototype is 3D printed, here is how the final product will look like. Smooth edges and multiple color options means that it'll look great on practically any toilet paper roll holder.

Benefits Over the Traditional Toilet Paper Holders

  • Cutting down the time to a fraction of what it used to take to change a roll
  • More hygienic as you do not need to touch any part of the holder itself (think of the last time you cleaned that thing!)
  • Less dexterity required. Making it easier for children, the elderly and people with disabilities to change out a roll themselves
  • Holding your phone? This only requires one hand
  • One less thing to bother the people around you if you are the person who does not like to change an empty roll

A variety of color options will be available. The standard colors will be white, grey and black. We are also looking into a chrome finish option. Let us know what you would like to see!

There are toilet paper holders that this will not work with. If there are designs without a semi-flat surface on the top, this may not fit on it properly. Designs with a slight curve upwards or inwards are perfectly fine! The one in my bathroom has this curve and due to the foam double-sided tape, fits snug and is just as strong.

Risks and challenges

While we have done extensive research and expect things to go smoothly, there may be some risks and challenges that may occur.

1) Creating the molds on time and using an appropriate vendor to create our final product. Having production kept locally in North America not only ensures quality, but we can keep a close eye on the progress.

2) Finding logistics partners to deliver the products to our backers also may be a challenge. However, we are committed to sourcing a partner that will be able to help us deliver our product in a timely manner. If your country is not listed within the rewards section, please contact us and we will look into it.
