Shark Tank Potty Safe Update

Potty Safe update

  • Entrepreneurs: Colt and Stacy Hall
  • Business: Locking potty chair for potty training
  • Ask: $50,000 for 15% equity
  • Result: $50,000 for 20% equity
  • Shark: Lori Greiner

Necessity is the mother of invention, and the Potty Safe is proof of this. Colt and Stacy Hall fabricated their own locking potty chair after too many accidents while potty training their kids.

Growing up, their kids really wanted to help dump the potty seat, and it would just end up all over the bathroom. So, Stacy looked all over trying to find a solution.

However, she couldn’t find any products that would help. That’s when she came up with the idea for the locking potty seat, and Colt fabricated the design.

However, when they realized how much tooling would be, they had to come up with the money. They ultimately ended up mortgaging their house for $140,000, and altogether, they invested $152,000 into the company.

To use the Potty Safe, you simply press the potty seat latch on either side and it releases the potty from the base. It then snaps back down into the base after emptying and cleaning.

Now, they want to bring this training potty with a child-proof lock to families all across America. In fact, Stacy left her accounting career to focus on the company full-time.

The Halls have low sales, just $2,000 in the year of filming and they’re projecting to finish the year with $15,000 in sales. The good news though, is that they were in talks with Walmart at the time of filming.

Additionally, each unit costs $6.50 to manufacture and retails for $28.95. Further, the products are available on their website, as well as on Amazon, which launched the month before filming.

Daymond John didn’t know the space, so for this reason, he went out.

Robert Herjavec loved the product, but not the business. Ultimately, he also went out.

Mark Cuban didn’t think he could be all in, either. He went out next.

Kevin O’Leary didn’t think Colt and Stacy had proved that there was any demand for the product, so he couldn’t invest. This left Lori Greiner.

Lori knew it would be a tough journey, but she was still interested. She initially said it wasn’t investible for her, but changed her mind as Colt and Stacy left.

Her prior investments in companies like Squatty Potty could help, so she eventually offered $50,000 for 20% equity, and they quickly accepted at the last minute.

Did the deal with Lori help Colt and Stacy bring their product to the masses? Keep reading our Potty Safe update to find out what happened following the show!

We have great news to share in our Potty Safe update. It turns out, that after the episode aired, sales of the Potty Safe increased by nearly 500% and has now grown to over $1 million in annual sales.

For a while, the products were available on Amazon, however, it’s no longer being sold there. The potty seats were also carried by Bed Bath and Beyond, but sadly this retailer is now out of business.

That said, you can still buy them at Walmart and also on the Potty Safe website. The Potty Safe has also won several product awards, so it’s no surprise the company has been able to grow so well since appearing on Shark Tank.
