If you’ve never installed a toilet seat and find yourself needing to, you may be wondering what to do. Don’t worry, PlumbingSupply.com has you covered. We will show how to install one our most common models of toilet seats.
Step 1: If your new seat came equipped with bolt covers, pop open 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 bolts provided, 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, 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.
