Question about Toto Carlyle 1-piece Elongated Bowl Toilet

1 Answer

The toilet seat is super loose and I am unable to tighten.

The plastic screws seem like they are not lined up and my effort to screw them in is not working. Nor will they unscrew. Not sure how this came about but is there something I am missing?

Self closing all in one tolet seat boxed, hidden screws, how to tighten


If you are trying to install a standard toilet seat on a special "smooth sides" toilet, it likely will not work. Most hidden bolt toilets come with a special seat because you cannot get to anything from below. This special seat has a set of expanding style bolts that are attached to the screw that is part of the seat. The plastic expanding bolt goes into the hole(s) on the toilet, and as you tighten the screw on the toilet seat bolts, they expand the plastic part in the hole of the ceramic toilet.

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.

My toilet seat is loose but there are no visible external securing parts. Its a Banyo suite, with gentle self closing lid mechanism. How can I tighten it up and secure it back in place?


When the seat is closed there should be two plastic extensions about one and half inches long, lying flush on the base. Open these with a small screwdriver, like a ****-shell. There should be a regular head screw there and correspondingly underneath the screw, a nylon nut. hold the nut and tighten the screw.

Please rate this answer for me. Thank you

Loose toilet seat


If the screws don't tighten the either the screw threads are stripped or the attachment nut is stripped. Take the screw and nut to any hmoe repair center and get new ones. remember don't over-tighten then screws as this will crack the unit.

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!

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!
