The Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool is no stranger to the realm of toilet stools. It’s in a competitive arena up against the Squatty Potty, the easyGopro, and the Step and Go just to name a few. Many of these serve the same purpose but differ in ways that can sway your decision on choosing one–and that’s where we come into play.
This review of the Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool will cover what makes it different than the previously mentioned toilet stools. Sure, man made the toilet stool but not all of them equally!
We feel these are the points which make that difference in the end and make it unique not only to toilet stools but to your bathroom and toilet experience. Refer back to our toilet stool overview for general information on toilet stools.
So let’s jump into our review!
While the look of the Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool isn’t much to write home about, it’s design serves purpose. It’s built around functionality, not a contemporary bathroom design. It’s essentially two foot platforms connected by a bridge in the middle. The concept is being able to take the toilet stool wherever you need it.
This way, you can easily bring it where needed. And you won’t need to be embarrassed by the stool because it breaks down into a compact form that can be hidden from plain sight.
It’s look is also designed to easily fit under a toilet after usage, given it’s rounded connecting bridge.
Portability is by far the Squat-N-Go’s biggest differentiator and selling point.
Constipation and other digestive issues don’t stay at home when you leave. Those tend to come right along with you unfortunately. And people in this situations shouldn’t feel like they have to stay in their homes. They should be able confidently leave the home without causing a setback in your recovery or everyday life. They should feel like they can use any toilet in the healthiest and most comfortable way when on the go.
Not only is this easily transported, it’s easily stored too! You can easily pack it up and store it in a closet or perhaps your toilet etagere.
You wouldn’t cheat on your diet because you’re visiting a friend, why make similar sacrifices in other areas of your life? It’s time for no more compromise.
It’s time to take back your bowel control!
Not only does the Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool fold up into something portable, it comes with a draw-string pouch to hide away in a suitcase, backpack, or purse. It also keeps the stool together in case the parts become separated during travel or in your bags at your destination.
The only downside to the portability of the Squat-N-Go is that it is a bit big.
If you’re a women who carries a larger purse, you can likely manage this no problem. Smaller purses or bags likely won’t work. To the credit of Squat-N-Go, the bag it comes with was made for this. The bag can hide the stool away without drawing too much attention.
When it comes to the Squat-N-Go’s portability, I ask you, “Why leave the house without a toilet stool?” Personal health doesn’t end at your front door.
The Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool is one of the only stools that may require continued assembly as you use it. This comes in to play not only in portability, which we just covered, but even for routine use.
The convenience of the Squat-N-Go’s assembly makes for tucking this stool out of sight when it’s not being used. So for those who are looking to own a toilet stool without having it out 24/7, this could be a great selling point.
What you would do is simply pull the Squat-N-Go from it’s storage place as needed, perhaps in your Zenna Home Bathroom Saver, and assemble the toilet stool quickly.
After use, simply tear it down and place it back in its storage. It’s like you never had a toilet stool in the first place!
One drawback, and perhaps the only when it comes to the assembly, is that the Squat-N-Go toilet stool could have some difficulties in assembling it quickly. So if you are in a rush (yikes), you should be prepared for a little added pressure here.
Sizing It Up
There are two height options available for the Squat-N-Go; 7 inches and 9 inches.
The optimal pooing angle is 35 degrees (the angle between your torso and upper legs).
These are the numbers to keep in mind when considering the Squat-N-Go.
- The height of the user(s)
- The height of the toilet
- Your capabilities with a toilet stool
For example, you see to the right that on a 15 inch standard toilet, the 7 inch stool can handle the average human’s height (For Americans approximately 5 ft. 9 inches for men, approximately 5 ft 4 inches for women, according to the CDC).
This size was designed to average humans the optimal angle when sitting on the toilet if their is fits the height.
If you are a taller individual or have a taller toilet, you will likely need the 9 inch stool to help keeps you knees high and in proper position. Or if you’re an average-height individual but want a higher pooing angle, you can obviously opt for the taller stool.
Just to reiterate, the higher the toilet stool, the better the squatting angle which is around 35 degrees. This will straighten out your colon and rectum even more and allow an easier bowel movement every time.
And who doesn’t want easier poos?
The Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool is a fantastic toilet stool option especially for those who want to integrate a toilet stool into their everyday routines. Toilet stools are unfortunately not very common in all households yet but you don’t have to wait around for your friends and family to get one.
You also don’t have to buy them one if you don’t want to either. You can bring your own and enjoy the health benefits all to yourself!
In all seriousness, a toilet stool is a no-brainer option when it comes to health optimization. We care so much about our food intake that we forget about our food-related discharges!
Food out should be as important as food in.
This life philosophy also shouldn’t end the moment you leave your home. That’s where the Squat-N-Go Toilet Stool outshines its competition with its on-the-go readiness.
Its assembly and disassembly make it a great toilet stool to keep out of your way when it’s not in use. If you’re embarrassed by owning a toilet stool (and you should NOT be), the Squat-N-Go makes a great choice for the size it collapses into.
The size options are great too. Being one of the only plastic toilet stools that feature two sizes, the Squat-N-Go has something for everyone. Just refer to the sizing guide and you should be all set!
Even though we have a lot of positives to say about the Squat-N-Go, this might not be the best stool for everyone due to the platform-like stools for each of your feet. You don’t have a large platform stool to work with so children and people with knee or hip problems may not like that.
If you’re looking for something to fit into the design of your bathroom, you may want to look around at other options. Many of the other options listed in our overview are much more appealing.
However the purpose of this stool is functionality over looks, so this is to be expected.
- Improves Pooping Posture
- Easy to use for adults
- 7 or 9 inch sizes
- Tougher to assemble
- Might be larger than meets the eye
- Overuse might lead to side effects
- Nothing special visually
The Squat-N-Go is a no brainer when deciding on a toilet stool.
If its looks aren’t your thing, I get it. It may not be all that attractive. However, this toilet stool stands up tall next to all the other toilet stools in the market place. Its portability is great for the health-conscious individual.
Its assembly is perfect for people who want a toilet stool without worry of storing it. Or, for those who simply want it out of the way when going number 1 in the toilet.
You could do much more worse than this toilet stool. Toiletops.com gives the Squat-N-Go toilet stool a “buy” to those interested in a toilet stool.
