    More details? I can't give more details. This is a very specific type of toilet seat fixing that uses glue as well as the normal screw fixings. I need to know how to remove the glue.

    Unfortunately, the glue is hidden beneath the hinge bracket and is inaccessible, hence the difficulty in removing it by normal methods. But thanks for your response.

I have cleaned the toilet seat in hot water and the plastic glued stoppers for the seat have fallen off and the glue has become hard. Where do I get new stoppers from.


Hi seacenter30

Why buy new seat stoppers when all they need is just re-glueing.
Get yourself a cheap hot glue gun (HomeDepot,Lowes,WalMart,etc) and a couple of hot glue sticks and apply the hot glue to the rubber/plastic stoppers and hold them into position on the toilet seat lid till the glue sets, just takes about 20 seconds...
Then the toilet seat will be good to go again...pardon my pun...:-)
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I can't get to the nuts on the toilet seat in order to loosen them so I can change my broken toilet seat.


I just had the same problem.I can not believe that kohler would design such a flaw. I have four of these toilets in my house,and it would be ridiculously expensive to replace, especially for a seat. To fix it I went to OSH and got some 1/4-20 T nuts, went home cut the bolts off the seat (multi master dremel) with metal cutting blade. With a screw driver tapped the bolt and the small area around the bolt down into the toilet area. Now you have just a porcelain hole. Clean area with solvent (lacquer thinner),get some gel type super glue from hobby shop and put it on inside and top edge of the hole on the toilet. Put some glue around the shaft and under side of the T nut and slip it into the hole.Then put a SMALL bead of glue around where the T nut makes contact with toilet and let it dry aprox 1/2 hour. Now you have a permanent fix.To prevent a problem getting the bolt out in the future,put some anti seize (auto part store) on the threads of the new bolts. Hope this helps.
Good luck

When you sit on the ring it veers off to the left and you are left sitting there crooked. How do we adjust it?


See if nuts on studs on bottom where it mounts to the floor & flange are loose. If they are loose tighten both of them evenly. If they are tight you will need to replace wax ring that is between toilet & floor.Turn off shutoff water valve to toilet. Flush once holding down handle to let tank drain. Remove both nuts & lift toilet off flange. Remove wax ring. Scrape all old wax off toilet & floor flange. Install new wax ring. Set down toilet on ring & snug nuts evenly. Sit on seat & apply your weight evenly to distribute wax & level. Retighten nuts. Turn water back on. Allow tank to refill. Flush toilet & check for leaks.

I bought a new Jacuzzi toilet and from day one the screws that hold the seat on will not tighten down enough to keep the seat from slipping out when i go to sit on it. This is very irretating, when you are...


Three wraps of white teflon tape on the threads will often help to keep the assembly tight longer. Since the fastener is made of nylon, there is not really any sort of glue that will work.

The flaps that should fasten down to hold seat to toilet do not snap into the the provided holes.


the flaps covering the bolts?? if they are broken, just use a little dab of superglue. make sure the toilet bolts are tight before glueing.

don't go crazy with the glue, just a little dab on each side to hold down the flap

Toilet seat cover became loose on one side


I have a Toto Dorian 1.6 Gpf where the right side of the cover separated from the seat frame. I fixed it by removing the seat from the toilet base and driving the stainless steel shaft back into the cover hibge holes.

To remove the toilet seat, use a large phillips head screw drive and unscrew the two long screws that hole the seat to the base.

Then you will see the two steel rods about 1/4 inch in diameter that have worked there way out of the seat hinge. Use a hammer and a screw driver to drive these two hinge pins back out into the toilet seat cover hinge holes.

Replace the toilet seat and screw in the two seat screws being careful to not over tighten them. The seat should now work correctly.

Jacuzzi Era elongated seat attachment


first need to buy the longer oval seat so it sits correctly at the front most mounting screws are universal-- go buy thin rubber washers and trim and place between the hinge and bowl than tighten down this will stop slippage but the front if not correctly sitting on the bowl will still cause problems
