The Bladder and Bowel ‘Just Can’t Wait’ card uses what is considered to be a universally acknowledged image for a toilet.
This universal image should help minimise any embarrassment and ensure there is no confusion about the purpose of the card. It may also assist those whose English is not their first language or the holder in non-verbal.
National Autistic Society - 0808 800 4104
The radar key was first created so that disabled people could have access to toilets, specifically for their own use, in public areas, office blocks, pubs or restaurants.
Having a locked toilet ensures it is not misused by other users and owning a key prevents the embarrassment of needing to ask for one.
