DAf Yomi -Toiltet Tank Covers

Shabbos 126b

             כיסוי קרקעות אם יש להן בית אחיזה אין אי לא 

 According to Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon R Shlomo Miller שליט"א
 One may remove and/or return the cover of the toilet tank on שבת.

 Even though it is a cover to a מחובר לקרקע {toilet) and should
 need a handle* (בית אחיזה) but since it is easily removed by holding
 on to the sides, it is considered as if it has a בית אחיזה

Otherwise, it is like בונה

  1. Not all toilet tanks are made the same. The ones I'm familiar with in the States are heavy and porcelain and just sit there. In Israel they are a lightweight cheap plastic. But they snap into place. One needs to exert the right pressure to remove it. I don't think you can compare the two.
    IMHO, whenever a ruling is made about something, one first needs to explain what the that something looks like.
    I am not sure if R' Miller would allow the Israeli ones.
