How to tighten the hinges on a slow close toilet seat?

I have a close coupled mini toilet with a slow close seat. It appears that to access the seat fastenings and hinges you have to remove hinge covers using an allen key at the back of the hinge covers. The fixings for the seat are hidden in the close coupled seat. I want to tighten the seat fixings to the toilet but I do not want to risk any damage to the slow close mechanism if the allen key 'route' is not the correct way to remove the covers. Any advice will be appreciated.

You don't want to overtighten since you could crack the porcelain. Are your rubber washers in good shape? This will help. You should be able to do this w/out doing any damage.

How to remove a parisi nahm soft close toilet seat


there is 1 of two ways.
easy way is have a look where the seat mounts to the toilet and see if there is a cover that you can lift up and find a screw under it. there might be 2 pins on each side of the toilet seat hinge that you depress for you to remove the seat from the hinges to access the screws.
failing the above method the toilet has to be removed to access the screws / wingnuts from under neath. send closer picture of hinge on seat if you like.

Hinge on quiet close stopped working


A lot of these slow closing toilet seats don't work well, so I suggest an alternative, Drop-a-Seat cushions. They stick on to the bottom of the toilet seat, allow you to drop any toilet seat, gravity does all the work, and the cushions absorb the impact. They're non-absorbent, stick on for easy installation (permanent yet removable), and are only $4.99. Check them out at www.drop-a-seat.com

Toilet seat hinges are loosening


Most generic seats have a thin plastic cap that snaps in place over the bolt heads just behind the seat. Normally they hinge backwards so carefully pop them open with a flat blade screwdriver. Sometimes you can tighten the bolts from underneath even.

Loose toilet seat


If the screws don't tighten the either the screw threads are stripped or the attachment nut is stripped. Take the screw and nut to any hmoe repair center and get new ones. remember don't over-tighten then screws as this will crack the unit.
