SOURCE: I have a Toto saftclose toilet seat but it doesnt close softly!!!

If it is something you can adjust, there will be an area on the hing. There also may be a small cover over the adjustment screw.

SOURCE: We have 3 soft closing Toilet seats.Newly

Reach under the bowl of the toilet and feel for a rather large wing-nut bolt on each side of the toilet. You must hold these with your hand and tighten the screws with a screwdriver. If you don't hold these wingnuts, then the screws will keep spinning forever and never tighten. Run your hand directly below the toilet just below the screws and you will find them. VERY EASY FIX!

SOURCE: Toilet seat hinges are loosening

Most generic seats have a thin plastic cap that snaps in place over the bolt heads just behind the seat. Normally they hinge backwards so carefully pop them open with a flat blade screwdriver. Sometimes you can tighten the bolts from underneath even.

How do I replace a toilet seat on duravit happy D toilet


I think our toilet is a Duravit.
Close the seat and the lid then have a look at the back of the hinges. If you can see a small hole in the back of the hinge there will be a grub screw in the hole and you can undo it with an allen key (not sure what size - you'll have to try a couple)

Dripping faucet


first step would be to change the rubber washer or o ring.
  1. buy a proprietary washer kit from any DIY store.
  2. Turn water off at isolating valve on teh pipe underneath the sink / bath or at the mains and or hot water tank as appropriate
  3. Remove the top of the faucet (often there is a plastic circle at the top that prises off to reveal a screw - mixer taps may have a grub screw on the side)
  4. Gently using a wrench to loosen the nut unscrew and remove the tap (faucet) barrell (middle bit)
  5. Remove nut that holds washer in place and remove it or, in the case of an O ring - prise it off with a pin or needle.
  6. Reassemble in reverse order - do not over-tighten.
If that doesn't stop the drip then the seat that the rubber washer / O ring seals against may be pitted or grooved. Either buy or hire a 'tap (faucet) seating tool.
  1. Turn off water before opening the faucet
  2. dismantle faucet as above
  3. Find which of the sleeve adapters that comes with the seating tool is teh right one to screw into the top of the faucet body
  4. select the grinding disc that is closest to the size of the seat and screw it onto the end of the seating tool
  5. Screw the tool into place in the top of the faucet body - just finger tight.
  6. Pressing down firmly with even pressure (but not too hard) on the top of the seating tool rotate the handle backwards and three or four complete rotations.
  7. reassemble the faucet but DO NOT close the faucet off
  8. slowly turn the water back on and allow it to flow hard for a few seconds to flush and debris out of the spout
  9. Slowly close the faucet and check for leaks.
  10. If necessary repeat re-seating process

One of the softclose buffers on the Subway toilet seat has pulled


Each soft close 'Barrel' is handed - one left - one right. (One is grey - the other white).

Most soft close errors occur because the seat hinges come loose. When this happen, the barrels slightly pull-out of the seat. (There are silver discs on the barrels - These should be tight against the seat).

Once the barrels become loose the first thing that happens is the top cover won't soft close - but the seat still does.

To rectify - puch both barrels tighly into fitting and tighten the hinges. (See below).

To tighen the seat hinges you need to get a flat headed screwdriver underneath the chrome round hinge cover - and 'flick off'. Underneath is a X head screw which id also hexagonal. You can either tighen both by spanner - or screw driver. (sometimes these can be tricky - but it will come off).

If both cover AND seat do not soft close AND the barrel silver discs are firmly located against the seat - the barrel has probably broken.

If so - spare parts can be obtained here:
