Why does the cover come off when the GO anywhere portable toilet is set up for use / why would I need the optional bottom cover?
When the toilet is set-up the lid can be placed under the back legs of the toilet for extra stability on softer terrain. For this reason the lid is intended to be removed when the toilet is set-up.
The optional bottom cover can be used like the top cover for extra stability. Its main purpose is to ensure complete closure of the toilet once folded up, thus eliminating dirt and bugs inside the toilet when it is not being used.
