You Woke Last Night to the Sound of a Crash

Scenario 1: You’re sleeping soundly, an hour or so from your normal waking time when your partner gets up to use the bathroom. Suddenly, a SLAM! pops your eyelids open as the toilet seat crashes to the bowl. Your heart thuds. Instantly, you know it: Sleep is over for the night.

Scenario 2: Your five-year-old is in the bathroom when you hear a SLAM! and a wail that seizes your heart. You run, breathless, to find that her little fingers got caught in a slamming toilet seat.

It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way

You can enjoy restful sleep without worrying that your toilet seat will go rogue in the middle of the night. Your children should be able to use the toilet without fearing pinched fingers.

How? Whisper•Close®.

With just a tap, this innovative slow-close feature lets your toilet seat close quietly to the bowl. And Whisper•Close works whether you just close the cover, the seat, or both.

Wondering if Whisper•Close is one of those hide-and-seek features only available on a limited number of toilet seats? Hardly!

We believe in innovation and know that sharing is caring, the best way to improve the quality of life for our customers. That’s why you’ll find Whisper•Close on a wide variety of our toilet seats:

  • Fully featured - Affinity™, in durable, high-gloss plastic, or Alesio II™, in high-density enameled wood.
  • Colors – From Crane White to Country Grey and Dusty Rose to Black and more, colors let you experiment, create a mood and easily change the feel of your bathroom.
  • Hinges – From traditional plastic to brushed nickel, beautiful chrome, or oil-rubbed bronze, these hinges add a note of elegance and complement your décor.
  • Child/Adult Potty Seats – The adult rings on both our NextStep2™ and Little2Big™ feature Whisper Close, protecting little fingers and making the potty training experience more enjoyable.



Here's Scenario 3: Long nights of dream-filled sleep, uninterrupted by sudden slams. Children who enjoy the “big kid” feel of using the toilet without worrying about pinched fingers.

Will Whisper•Close encourage your family to finally close the cover? Even we can’t guarantee that. But what we can promise is that if they decide to at least try, just a tap will make it happen.
