A TikToker has revealed a hack to help prevent you being walked in on in a comprising position in the loo.

A hair grip utilised by Daphne in Scooby-Doo to help pick locks showed us all just how nifty such products can be in getting out of sticky situations, and so it's hardly surprising that yet another life hack has been revealed, this time, involving a hair band and a toilet lock.

So grab that last hair band - which is somehow the only one you've been left with despite buying a pack of 100 - and prepare to have your mind blown.

Loading…

If you struggle to get those pesky loo locks drawn through their holes properly, according to @lifehackgod_ , simply pop a hairband over the handle, thread it through the hole, and use it to pull the lock through.

The video then instructs you to loop the band back over the handle for extra security.

The post has so far amassed over 5.3 million views, 900,000 likes and 8,000 comments, with hundreds of users responding to the hack. One said: 'WAIT THATS GENIUS. i would just hold it with my foot.'

Another wrote: 'Thats why im taking at least 30 hair bands to school in my bag so i always have at least 1', meanwhile, a third commented: 'RIP hair tie…😭 I don’t think I’d want that back in my hair after that. Lol! But good idea, though!!! :).'

Granted, she could have just used her finger to slide the lock properly in place, but the hairband offers that little bit extra security I guess?

So, next time you're trying to get some peace and quiet in the loo, make sure to bring your hairband with you!

As always, TikTok is elite for revealing all the hacks you never knew you needed in your life, from hairbands to help lock the loo door, to how to evenly heat your food in the microwave and a voicemail hack for if you ever get lost.

If you don't want to find yourself in an equally as nude and comprising position when coming out of the bathroom, then a man has also revealed just how you should be tying your towel around you to prevent it from slipping down.
