    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...

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: 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.

Try using a knife to slide in the under-part of the release button and pop it off. If that doesn't work, you might have to brake it.

I have a toilet which is a one peice. The toilet seat has come loose and the bolts have dropped to the floor. I can not fit the seat back as the pieces that i would use to tighten the seat are on the floor...


In no case would you ever have to pull a toilet to get to seat bolts.My guess is if you take the tank lid off and look inside there youll see the bolts . If not you can buy another toilet seat with new bolts or just get the bolts to fit your seat and tighten it down.Forget about the old bolts unless they become a problem with the flushing of the toilet. Hope this helps

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.
