Installing Common / Regular Toilet Seats

There are as many different toilet seats as there are toilets, and fortunately, they are very simple to install. However, if you've never installed a toilet seat you may be wondering what to do. We will show you the basic ways to install our most common models of toilet seats.

Standard Toilet Seat Installation

Tools needed: screwdriver

Step 1:
If your new seat came equipped with bolt covers, start by opening the lids of the bolt covers.



Step 2:
Place the seat on the toilet and line up the holes of the toilet with those in the seat. Insert the provided bolts through the bolt-holes.



Step 3:
From the underside of the toilet, thread the nut provided onto the bolt. Hand-tighten until snug.



Step 4:
To complete the installation, tighten the bolts with a screwdriver. Hold the wing-nut with one hand, and using the screwdriver in your other hand, tighten the bolt. Be careful not to over tighten them as it is possible to crack the seat or the porcelain. Typically, once the nut is hand-tightened, only about a quarter of a turn of the bolt (with the screwdriver) is needed.
