  • gsachs Sep 26, 2009

    the loose hinge is in the toilet seat itself, not at te attachment to the toilet.

  • gsachs Sep 26, 2009

    the connection is in the toilet seat to the hinge assembly, nothing to do with the toilet itself. Looking at the hinge I cannot see the screw that attaches toilet seat to hinge assembly

  • gsachs Sep 27, 2009

    Thank you for your help and let me explain better. THis model attaches to the toilet by press fittings. THe lid and toilet seat are attached to the hinge assembly. IN that there are two hinges to which the toilet seat is attached and one of them is loose in its attachment to the toilet seat and there is a white plastic cover inside that hinge so I cannot see how to tighten it.

Check and make sure the bolts holding the seat to the bowl are tight. This will tighten the hinge somewhat, but other than that there are no adjustments on a toilet seat. Sorry I couldn't be more help, but the seats just don't have adjustments on them.

    They have two types one with a curve that attached directly to a long screw and a nut at the bottom in the back to tie this one you need to get under the toilet and use your hand to tie the nut. The other type is a curved that has a cover to open it you need to insert a fine screwdriver to pray open and that has the screw inside…...let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

How do you fix a soft closing toilet seat where one hinge has become loose, one side has become detatched


Sorry there is no fixing one. the reason the hinge probably came loose is the wood has cracked and/or the wood got wet and rotted and the screws won't stay tightened. Go to Walmart and get you a new seat.

My toilet seat in not stationary any more- it has shifted-- can you help??? Connie


Connie the seat has become loose.
There are two nuts under the rim of the toilet, under the hinges of
the seat.

First line the seat up so it's straight, then tighten the nuts, just
tight enough so the seat doesn't shift any more.

Usually seat nuts are plastic and they have four tabs on them.
You can use a small pliers to turn the nuts.
I have a special socket for toilet seat nuts, that I can put on
a ratchet. But to tell you the truth, I have tightened seats 90
percent of the time with a pliers. I am too lazy to dig in my tool
box for the socket.

All my best and God Bless.

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.

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.

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!

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:
