Easy•Clean™ Hinged Toilet Seat Installation
Tools needed: 1/2" Socket Wrench
After removing the seat from the packaging and opening the parts bag, slide the bolt covers on the toilet seat to the "unlocked" position (to the left).
Flip the lid over so you are looking at the underside. Snap the plastic ends of the bolts into each of the bolt-holes on the lid and push them in until they click.
Turn the seat back over and move the bolt covers into the locked position. Place the bolts through the bolt-holes on the toilet. Now thread on the special nuts provided and hand tighten until snug.
Next, use a 1/2" socket wrench (or an adjustable wrench) to tighten the nuts to the proper tightness. Notice that the nuts provided have two sections; the section on the bottom is designed to break off when the proper amount of torque is applied. These unique nuts make it so you can't over tighten the nut and damage your seat or toilet, if used properly. When tightening, place either style of wrench on the bottom portion of the nut only.
