Handle on Toilet MUST be held down throughout flush

Really pretty ingenious. And super simple... no moving parts except the regular flapper hinge.
Found your reply in some old posts, but the picture of your solution won't come up. I would really like to see your solution. Is there some way you can send the picture to danellis1701@verizon.net?
