My 15-year-old toilet seat broke last week. One of the seat spacers broke and it was going lopsided. I saw that Costco had a great deal on a Kohlor soft close elongated toilet seat ( https://youtu.be/p67rQAY7YwM ), however my toilet needed a round. So I found a simple standard round online: https://amzn.to/2Ds7Qgt .
Before you start, measure and find the correct size toilet seat before ordering. They come in elongated, round, and custom sizes. Mine is pretty standard rental round size and could be had for about $15 to $35 depending on the quality or brand.
- Unbox the seat and make sure all the parts are there.
- Clean the toilet and the surrounding area. You will be touching the toilet bowl and sides.
- Find a blade screwdriver.
- Pop open the two hingle covers and unscrew the two bolts.
- You will need to reach underneath to unscrew the nuts holding the bolts down.
- Remove the old toilet seat cover.
- Remove old gaskets or material for the hinges.
- Clean the hinge area.
- Replace with new toliet seat
- Place the two new bolts in
- The rounded side of the two nuts go toward the toliet.
- Tighten the two bolts.
- Close the dust covers.
- You are done!
