Tha T-handle on my Porta Potti that opens and closes the seal has become very very difficult to move. It makes the late night use of the Potti very unpleasant as you wake up completely during the struggle to get it open, and then to close it again. Any suggestions for a quick fix?

Thank you

Maybe a quick dab of Q10 on the handle shaft may help?

Or, if is the rubber in itself that is sticky, use a little Vaseline to lubricate this.

I also found that, by accident, my wife, (the user of our aparatus), used to pull  the kadufer from its hiding place with the handle which caused same to protrude a little further out than necessary. A proper closing of same and some "teaching" (!) how to get to the Potty, helped.

Baie dankie.

Looks like the good old Vaseline we had on the bum as a baby needs to do some work again. Will give it a try.

Or use silicone spray. It will get into places where greases may not. (Not as messy as Q20.)

Over the years I have always used a bit of vaseline and rub it on the seal.

Now a days I just spray a bit of silcone spray and it works perfectly.
