SOURCE: elongated toilet doesn't fit where a round toilet was installed

Hi. There are toilets designed to accept a round seat and there are other toilets designed to accept an elongated seat. The primary difference is that the round seat fits a round bowl and the elongated seat fits an elongated bowl.

I recommend that you return the elongated seat and exchange it for a round toilet seat. good luck

SOURCE: Removing rusted nuts from bolts to replace toilet seat

Try:

* Penetrating oil...let it soak at least 1/2 hour

* If the nut is stripped, try either grabbing it with vice grips

* If all else fails, either grind it off, or use a nut splitter. Nylon is pretty soft, so it should be relatively easy to break

SOURCE: kohler lowboy toilet seat does not have bolts underneath

I have the same low boy where the bolts are inside the hollow body of the toilet. I called Kohler customer service and was told to use brute force to yank the toilet seat out. My husband suggested using a saw to cut the bolt but he hasn't done it yet. He wants to replace all our Kohler low boys which constantly leak becos of poor design of handle and flapper. The handle pulls the flapper slightly to the side when you flush. And the flapper lip being a tiny bit too small, if it doesn't sit just right, the toilet leaks. We've replaced one already with a Toto and love it. Too bad that Kohler isn't trying to fix the problem as I see many many online posts with the same problem and recommendation to replace the Kohler with Toto or somethng else.

SOURCE: How do I replace the toilet seat on a Kohler

I repaied one of these laast week and it had the Plastic nuts in between the webbing on the seat where the lid connects I believe You remove the plastic cap with a knife and use a flat tip screw driver to remove the screws and replace the seat.

How do i tighten soft close toilet seat on a porcher cygnet, with no underneath access to bolts.


There is usually a plastic nut that goes on the bottom and has a wing on it that will catch when you tighten the plastic bolt from above.

Kohler cimarron broken seat, replacement parts don't work 2x's


No do not use metal bolt and nut as this can crack the toilet. Just go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy 2 plastic bolts , 2 plastic wing nuts, and 2 plastic washers. Install with seat through toilet holes and tighten by hand until tight. I then use pliers to tight just a turn tighter and the seat should be center as you tightened one side, then the other, and back again until tight.

You should be able to remove the tank lid, reach into the cistern and find submerged at the bottom towards the front of the toilet the plastic wing nuts, hold onto these while tightening the plastic bolt from the top.

I have a Kohler toilet with a similar design, not sure if it is this exact model but they look very similar so I hope this works for you.

Not sure how to tighten or change toilet seat


First you want to reach underneath your toilet where the seat connects to it. You should see some sort of white nut. Just unscrew the nut from both sides. Once you're done with that pull off the old seat and place the new one on. Use the new nuts to tighten it down. For the most part you should be able to use your hand and not need any tools.

The toilet seat looks terrible on the underside and on the top it has the worn look. The price of over $400.00 to replace it is crazy. Is there a way of painting , cleaning up or should I buy a a new...


You should be able to remove an old worn out, toilet seat and replace. Usually its two Plastic Toilet Seat Bolts and two plastic wing nuts under the bowl. Most of them are hidden in a Plastic Cap where the seat attaches to the Toilet Base. You unsnap the caps to see the bolts. Make sure to hold the Wing Nuts underneath or they might just spin.

If its a matter of cleaning something because of neglect. I have recently started using new products that I purchased from www.ChristineFrey.Norwex.biz with great success!

I clean the entire bath room with three products and water!toilet-seat-looks-terrible-underside-2a0cfbtak4y3luwyen1qnfe3-5-0.jpg
Dirty to Clean its simple fast and effective.

The products are: my EnviroCloth, Blue Diamond Cleaner and my toilet brush. If you are like me, I never heard of any of this until I saw a demonstration November 2014 by this person who's website I posted above in this response.

How to stop seat from wobbling doesnt seem to have screws that fo into seat just a place for seat to sit on and then some cap to put over but nothing seems to tighten it.Im tired of falling off the toilet


First lift the covers off where the bolts should be (they should lift towards the tank). Are the bolts in place? If not, go to your neighborhood hardware store and look for replacement hardware. (Most stores will have staff willing to help you find the right parts.) Is the bowl damaged so that the holes seem large compared to the holes in the seat anchor points? Are the seat anchor points damaged?

The bolts should have nuts (and possibly washers, but not all models use them) underneath the bowl. Screw down the bolt while holding the nut from turning (so you need an adjustable wrench or appropriately sized wrench). Again see the local hardware store for the hardware if you do not have the nuts. Keep the seat centered as you tighten the bolts. (Alternate tightening until it is stable - do not tighten one bolt all the way down before doing the other side. You risk overtightening and cracking the bowl.)

I hope this helps.

(if the seat is damaged, you may want to replace it. If the bowl is damaged you must replace that.)

How to attach tank to toilet without leaking


That gasket should be squashable. It's called a donut. and is meant to sit between the tank and the pan - No caulk or other sealant need be used
Place over siphon thread up to securing nut - lower tank on top of pan and secure with the nuts/wing nuts underneath
Tighten each side equally - NOT one side then the other.
