A pedal dustbin is a dustbin that has a lid which can be opened and shut without having to lift the lid by hand. It works on the principle of lever that is operated by foot. 6 easy steps to help you to create a Pedestal Dustbin Mechanism.
Create the model which should consist of the following three parts: the dustbin container, a lever and pivot mechanism to open the lid and the dustbin lid.
The lever mechanism will again need to be of three parts: a pedal lever, a connector, and a lid opener.
Assemble and fix the lid to the container in such a way that it can be flipped open.
Set up the pivot mechanism which acts as the other end of the lever to push open the dustbin lid.
Make a pedal to step on. The pedal must push the lid acting as one end of the lever.
Design connectors between the pedal and the lid opener that functions as the fulcrum.
Ensure the lever mechanism is not inside the container, or obstructs the dustbin container’s main purpose – to hold rubbish until it is collected.
