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

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.

SOURCE: Toilet seat connectors mounted on toilet is loose

There should be a way to tighten the bolts without going that far Here's two things:
Look at the lid, with the seat down. The bolts are sometimes covered with a snap-in palstic cap or flap. If so, pry up with a screwdriver. Then use a screwdriver and wrench to tighten.
If the bolts appear to be cast as a part of the hinge assembly, you should be able to reach around the seat to the back side (no pun intended) of the toilet, and tighten with a wrench.
I sometimes use a 'mirror trick' to get a better idea of what's back there. Just use a small mirror and hold it to where you can see the bolt and not on the back.
Hope this gets you going (oops, another unintentional pun).
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution..thanx!

SOURCE: loose Toto toilet seat

Lift up plastic caps located on ends of hindge behind seat. use flat screw driver and hold the nut under the outside toilet rim with your fingers or a pair of pliers. Do not over tighten or might crack the bowl.

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.

How do i remove a broken bolt which is embedded in the toilet, the bolt keeps the toilet seat lid fastened to the toilet?


There has to be either a nut and washer under the toilet, or if its reversed a bolt head with a washer under it holding it down. To remove it you can either use a hacksaw blade between the bowl and the bottom of the seat. Or use a dremel tool to slowly cut away the metal rod, etc., from the top. If using hacksaw put down some masking tape on the bowl so you don't scar up the enamel surfacr of the bowl. Work slowly and you will eventulaly cut through it.

Toilet seat too loose


Is the nut thats on the under side fastened all the way and If you've done that and the screw keeps getting loose then the threads inside the nut or on the screw may be worn away. If thats the case, you may have to by some new screws and I'm not sure if they sell those separately you would usually have to buy a new toilet seat to get new screws, but try home depot or walmart.
