People who need to use a locked disabled loo can now be confident that these toilets will be available to meet their needs.
These toilets are those with wide entrances and disability symbols on the door.
Toilets fitted with RADAR locks can now be found in shopping centres, pubs, cafés, parks, footpaths, airports, stations and many other locations across the UK.
Unlike regular public toilets, these loos are often locked and are regularly only available for use on request.
Sods law says that when you really need to use it, the only compatible key is nowhere to be found!
The Radar key scheme ensures that people who need to use accessible toilets don t have to ask someone to unlock the door so that they can have a wee, please!
Disabled people's toilets are big, private and less likely to be occupied.
As a result they are open to misuse by the general public.
Most notoriously, they are sometimes occupied by drug users or people having sex.
The Radar Key Scheme enables these disabled toilets to be locked, to prevent vandalism and misuse.
