The touch-bar bin is a great alternative to the classic soft touch or pedal bin. Just tap the touch-bar gently to release the latch and open the lid. The fingerprint-proof stainless steel bin has an internal hinge and space-efficient shape so you can place it flush against the wall.


  • easy open touch-bar: Our touch bar is easy to open from any angle. If your hands are full, just tap with your elbow, bump with your hip or nudge with your knee - the possibilities are endless!
  • extra large opening: The latch mechanism is integrated into the lid so nothing obstructs the opening.
  • fingerprint-proof: Fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.
  • internal hinge: Internal hinge allows you to place this bin right up against the wall.
  • stay-open lid: The lid stays open for as long as you like – great for long chores.
  • lift-off lid: Lid lifts off easily for a quick bag change.
  • hide excess bag: Bag tuck® opening tucks away excess bag so it stays neatly out of sight.
  • gentle slider discs: Nylon discs under the bin make it easy to slide and gentle on your floors.

about simplehuman – tools for efficient living®

simplehuman was founded in 2000 in Los Angeles with the goal to make it easier and more efficient to “take out the trash”. The success of its first pedal bin led the company to expand its mission to create “tools for efficient living” — products designed to help make people more efficient at home. The company now has more than 100 products that are sold throughout the world by leading retailers.
