Like 95% of men, I've been caught short on many occasions, when there have been perfectly good toilets avaliable for the disabled super nearby... but inaccessible.

However, something great came in the post the other day, and I thought I should share it with PH. Specifically, it's a "RADAR Key". You can buy it from here: http://www.radar.org.uk/radarwebsite/tabid/41/defa... - less than a fiver!

Just make sure, if you're not disabled yourself, that you add VAT to the price.

Then you'll be able to use all these toilets smile

Theoretically, these are for disabled people only. But if you use them responsibly and don't leave a mess, there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't use them either. This little known scheme is basically to keep out semi literate junkies or other assorted scum who ruin toilets in various ways. But as a literate junkie (hehe, on edit this sounds bad, like I'm doing something other than pissing in these places!) I thought it best to share it. Make sure when you buy one you give a tenner donation to RADAR to ease yer conscience thumbup

Haha - great idea! I actually saw an able-bodied person (how PC, was going to say "normal!") using one of these in a toilet in a local pub the other day, was saying to my mate how good it would be to have one as the toilets are downstairs and through a maze of corridors!

They are better for number two's.

The grab rails and extra leg room really do come in handy when fighting the brown beast.

It can have a satin covered, electrically reclining seat for all I care, no way would I use an alien bog for my 617 squadron impressions.

True, I don't...but this is a wetherspoons and he's there everyday pissed out of his mind 9am-1am, maybe the pub gave him the key as some kind of loyalty bonus!

Nope me neither.
Presumably the OP lives in a place where the 'locals' still think disabled people are aliens and they'd only vandalise the toilets if they could get to them.
Fortunately the locals are unaware of the internet or the above link..!

Mainly in public places. I've not had one fitted at home just yet.

I'm gonna have to open my eyes somewhat wider, then! I've used the odd disabled bog when I simply can't find (read - can't be bothered to find) the others, never been denied access by lack of radar key!

Any of those public toilets in London which you have to pay for have a Radar key option.

I've never heard of this system before. I thought it was going to be a method of detecting if someone was about to enter the disabled toilet you were using inappropriately, thus allowing you to escape undetected!

Disabled toilets in the U.S. are available to anyone. There is no key or special access contingencies. I admit, I have used them on many an occassion, mainly because they are significantly cleaner.

Hmmm, this brings a question to mind. You know how they say public toilets are cleaner than you think simply because not alot of people actually use their hands to flush, etc. In that same respect then, does that mean that hookers are cleaner and safer because they always use condoms? hahaha

Why not go to the normal toilets? I work in a pub with two disabled toilets at each end that need radar's. We have had to stop giving keys out as 'normal' folk may not give it back, and it's a bit irritating to take a elderly lady to the door, then wait as a middle aged man who can't be bothered walking down 15 steps comes out after having a st.

Do you use disabled spaces too at supermarkets?

I know I bit there, but it posses me off and is not very respectful at all.

Cobblers.

If there's no one in the pub requiring use if the disabled loo, then I'll quite happily use them.

Ditto the reserved seats in buses - if no one elderly is getting on, I'll sit there.

They're preferential, NOT proscribed.

No idea what this RADAR thing is, tho.
