The Toilet Paper Roll Poll

About

This page is dedicated to poll people what method they prefer when installing toilet paper rolls.

The idea to make this poll come from the Movie Spy Hard (1996), where this is a question asked by Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 (Leslie Nielsen).

There are two common methods of installing toilet paper rolls on a toilet roll holder. Often a matter of stern debate, and a contentious problem in households with opposing viewpoints, the variances are mainly that of personal preference.

1-Edge of the roll facing away

Edge 
facing out1 - The first method of installation has the edge of the roll facing away from the wall and commonly facing the toilet. This method allows the defecator easy access to grab the toilet paper and pull off the desired amount of paper, as the roll spins toward the user.

2-Edge of roll facing wall

Edge facing 
wall 2 - The second method of installation has the edge of the roll facing the wall and commonly facing away from the toilet. This method is a bit more difficult for the defecator to grab the toilet paper, as the roll spins it spins away from the user. An advantage to this method is that a household with toddlers is less likely to have toilet paper spun off the roll. This is because a toddler is most likely to spin the roll toward them. In the case of this installation, as the roll spins toward the toddler, the paper remains wound on the roll.
