I need to replace a square toilet seat made by American Standard Model TL 235. Perhaps you can refer me to someone who might have this item or a substitute item. Thank you in advance.

    I have the same problem - an American Standard square toilet (and matching pedestal sink) purchased in 1980 and desperately in need of a new seat! Have you found a source? I see some square seats available in the UK, but even if I were certain any would fit, it would be cheaper to replace the toilet AND the sink!

    Same problem.The square toilet in my half bath is quite a conversation piece. It was here when I bought the house.Seat is broken and I can't find a replacement.

    I can't find the source for an American Standard toilet seat -- Square at both ends, white.  If I can't find the cover, the whole toilet will have to go in an upcoming renovation.  That would be a shame.  Guests at my home love it - it came with the house when I purchased it 20 years ago.

    Same problem. Broken seat on a square toilet. American Standard. The house was built in '78 or '79!

    I have the same problem and wondered if you had any luck. The date on tank is only Aug.3 so year wasn't included.

Even better than the date, check the model number on the inside of the tank - should be four digits. Then call AS or a plumbing supply house.

I have not seen a square toilet seat. You need to check the date stamped inside the tank and check with american standard about the seat.

Replacement seat....size???

American Standard is the brand, so you've got a start there, but 1.6 is a flush measurement. Look around the inside for a tank for a model number - with AmStan toilets it's usually a four digit number beginning with a 2 or a 4. This will be what you need to get the OEM toilet seat. However, since toilet seats are purely cosmetic (they don't affect the functioning of the toilet), you can literally take a few measurements and find something that simply keeps you off the porcelain. is a good one for toilet seats, btw.

Did you try calling or emailing the parts dept. at american standard? I am not sure if they just sell the gasket. American standard parts are certainly different from most toilets. I looked on ebay, not much for american standard toilets. Were you able to remove the four screws and get the sealer under the gasket.? I will do some more research for you and try to find parts. take care, andy

I have a square shaped toilet and need to replace the seat. Where would I find one?

Check with your local plumbing supply houses. I believe Kohler and Eljer noth made square front bowls at one time. I hope this helps.

Replacing my toilet's seat disc

Follow the link above, it will probably answer any questions you may have for your particular toilet. They are all different and without the model number, it's hard from my point of view to understand what you may need. Hope this helps you!
