Question about Villeroy & Boch 9955 S1 Subway Toilet Seat & Cover w/ Quick-Release & Softc

1 Answer

I have a VB slow close toilet seat and one of the pins is broke. I'm also in need of the two nylon sleevs that hold the screws in place on the bowl. Is it possible to purchase these items?

One of the pins has broken away from the small metal plate and will either need to be re-welded or replaced. The nylon sleeves apparently have runners on each side and would have a threaded bit that the screws tightened on. The bottom (or threaded) piece broke away when I loosened the screws.

Since no one welds part back together (unless you can) so you will have to buy them, but I suggest you call the manufacturer as they will send you the needed parts for free.

There is no way to adjust the hinges themselves, just their position on the bowl relatively to the seat cover. If they are loose then they are damaged. Since they are guaranteed for 10 years this is clearly a manufacturing defect.
To fix that you will have to contact the ones that sold it to you and they will replace it free of charge.

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

My slow close toilet seat now slams shut. Are there any adjustments I can make to correct this problem?


WOW! Slow-close toilet seats. What will "they" think of next, to pick your pocket?

Slow-open mechanisms such as cassette players and top-loading DVD players use a special type of grease to achieve that effect.

The screen on the laptops uses a friction mechanism based on a "clutch-spring" with enough holding power to keep the display in the position selected.
This "clutch-spring" is factory adjusted so it neither slips under the weight of the laptop screen, nor is so tight that extra force is required to close the laptop.
These things do wear out, and as a rule are not user serviceable.

Can you adjust it? Good question!
Can you adjust it so it works? Ahah!
My rule of thumb: If it's already broken, how much more broken can it get?

Therefore, my conclusion is that the toilet seat's slow-close mechanism is factory set at the point where it will neither slam down nor stop half-way, but glide down gently until it's closed.

An interesting added feature would be for the toilet to recognise who's about to use it, and for what, select the seat position be it up or down, and then regulate the water volume needed to flush.
Also, it could flush itself once the lid is fully closed, to avoid or minimize the dreaded "toilet flush mist". arrrghhh!!!

My toilet seat is loose but there are no visible external securing parts. Its a Banyo suite, with gentle self closing lid mechanism. How can I tighten it up and secure it back in place?


When the seat is closed there should be two plastic extensions about one and half inches long, lying flush on the base. Open these with a small screwdriver, like a ****-shell. There should be a regular head screw there and correspondingly underneath the screw, a nylon nut. hold the nut and tighten the screw.

Please rate this answer for me. Thank you

Hacked off the old seat? You mean the closet flange that connects to the sewer pipe?
That's the part that has the bolts. They go up through the toilet base.

If you have just a straight sewer pipe now, you can connect a new closet flange to it.

1.Hardware stores sell a rubber sleeve. This sleeve fits over the cast iron, or copper, or plastic PVC pipe, and the new closet flange has a stem that fits down in the sleeve. There are two large hose clamps, that come with this rubber sleeve.

The rubber sleeve is an adapter. It adapts the 4 inch sewer pipe, down to the 3 inch stem on the closet flange. (Toilets are known as a 'Water Closet', hence the flange that the toilet bolts to, is a 'Closet Flange')

Whatever size of rubber sleeve you need to adapt two pipes together, they have it.
The new closet flange is made of PVC plastic.
(Poly Vinyl Chloride)
The flange itself is about 1/2 inch thick, and has provisions for bolts. (Use Toilet Bolts, and nuts)
Be sure the closet flange sits flush to the floor. The 1/2 inch thick rim of the flange, sits on top of the floor. The flange is then screwed to the floor with countersink head screws. The slots allow the bolts to just slip in.

IF, the flange Does Not sit level on the floor, and the area for the toilet base is not level, you need to make a flat, level surface!
Do Not half step this, or you'll have a toilet leak from now until the time you fix the floor!

Would appreciate it if you would rate my solution. If you have additional questions, state them by clicking on Additional Comments.

How to install Toilet Seat


Use a flat head screwdriver to pry open the plastic pieces that cover the screws. Using the same flat head screw driver, unscrew the large plastic screws holding the old seat in place. There are usually plastic nuts on the underside that you can hold on to while removing the screws. Remove the old seat. Clean the area where the screws were and dry thoroughly. If the new seat has an adhesive pad, remove the covering from the adhesive and put the seat in place. Thread the new screws through the holes and attach with the new nuts. If there aren't new nuts and screws, you can use the old ones, provided they weren't damaged during removal. Snap the caps covering the screws on the new seat in place. Be careful not to over tighten the screws! Since they're plastic, they can be easily damaged by a screwdriver!
