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