An apparatus for use on a toilet that allows a user to move an element of the toilet without having to touch the element. The apparatus has a member with two ends, and a means to attach one end of the member to the toilet element such that pulling on the other end moves the toilet element. The member can be attached to the toilet element using a suction cup, an adhesive means, or a magnet. The elements which may be moved by using the apparatus include the toilet lid, toilet seat, and toilet tank lid. The apparatus may have a handle attached to the end where pulling force is applied, which can be constructed in a ring or a tubular shape. The apparatus can be constructed of materials making it inexpensive and portable or disposable. The apparatus can be threaded through a pulley structure, redirecting the force required to move the toilet element, making it easier to use.
