You should not have to take base apart to install. Where the bolts go there are caps that flip up. Insert bolts through seat and bowl and put nuts on from underneath.

Here's two things:
Look at the lid, with the seat down. The bolts are sometimes covered with a snap-in plastic 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.

SOURCE: 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!

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: 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).

I'm looking for round buffers that fit below the toilet seat to stop the seat resting on the toilet bowl. The brand is Gala.


Lowes or HD should have that or a specialty shop. Worst case, the mfr. would have that. You can take the plastic caps that cover the bolts that hold down the bowl in place on the floor and secure them to the seat. All you want is it to support the seat. There won't be any sideways pressure on it. It would just slide on the bowl if it did. If the cap is too tall for the seat, then you can grind it down some to level the seat.

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.

Can you just buy a toliet seat base??


Im not sure I understand the question so please excuse me. You can buy a toilet seat, and they usually attach to the toilet bowl. If the porceline that the seat is attached to is broken then the bowl will most likely need to be replaced. Most of the time you can replace the toilet cheaper than just replacing the bowl. Hope this helps.

Toilet seat


Here's what I did. Unscrew them as much as possible. Then I used a bolt cutter and hacksaw to cut away as much of the plastic seat holders as possible. I could then remove most of the seat, and get better access to the screws. I then raised the loose screws enough to cut them with a bolt cutter. Soft screws cut easily. The screw heads are now out. Now, tap down on the screw/anchor and it falls into the bowl. It will stay there. The remaining problem is that you need anchors to secure the new toilet seat. Kohler wants $50. I have a usable but loose seat. Never again-Kohler.
I strongly recommend using a boltcutter. A hacksaw will tear up the bowl.
