Question about Eljer & Elongated Toilet Bowl
I know its a long time since this question was posted but I had the same issue and have just fixed it. Remove the toilet seat by pushing in each of the two release buttons on the hinges, then lift. Where the hinges located are two circlular receivers, both have a metal cap that can be removed using a small flat head screwdriver or similar. This reveals a large cross-head bolt head on each which you can tighten. I suggest nipping them up not overtightening just in case you damage the bowl. At least once you know where they are you can re-tighten another day! Then reassemble (remembering to put the caps back on first)... I hope this helps someone - I spent ages looking for the answer on the internet only to find it all out myself. Good luck...

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.

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

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.

I repaied one of these laast week and it had the Plastic nuts in between the webbing on the seat where the lid connects I believe You remove the plastic cap with a knife and use a flat tip screw driver to remove the screws and replace the seat.
