You don't want to overtighten since you could crack the porcelain. Are your rubber washers in good shape? This will help. You should be able to do this w/out doing any damage.

SOURCE: Toilet seat hinges are loosening

Most generic seats have a thin plastic cap that snaps in place over the bolt heads just behind the seat. Normally they hinge backwards so carefully pop them open with a flat blade screwdriver. Sometimes you can tighten the bolts from underneath even.

SOURCE: kohler lowboy toilet seat does not have bolts underneath

My wife wanted to replace our Kohler low boy with a self closing seat. We got a Westport whisper close with unlock-able hinges for easy cleaning. I followed the above advice to use brute force to yank out the Kohler bolts. I then used a hacksaw to cut the new plastic seat bolts so that they would not extend past the thickness of the porcelain. I drilled the plastic bolts thru so that a small drywall toggle bolt would fit thru. Use a washer to prevent it from pulling thru, screw on the toggle and cut off excess screw length so it does not bottom out inside the cavity. Insert the assembly in the hole and tighten. Snap on & lock the Westport seat and you are good to go!

Help. Porsches toilet. Trying to adjust toilet seat. The hinge cover is fixed so hard that it came off with the screws. Cannot access the screws as hinge cover is stuck fast. How can I remove it?


You can try using a putty knife to pry up the edge of the covers. The hardware often is less-than-durable plastic so the end result may be destruction.

Toilet seat cover became loose on one side


I have a Toto Dorian 1.6 Gpf where the right side of the cover separated from the seat frame. I fixed it by removing the seat from the toilet base and driving the stainless steel shaft back into the cover hibge holes.

To remove the toilet seat, use a large phillips head screw drive and unscrew the two long screws that hole the seat to the base.

Then you will see the two steel rods about 1/4 inch in diameter that have worked there way out of the seat hinge. Use a hammer and a screw driver to drive these two hinge pins back out into the toilet seat cover hinge holes.

Replace the toilet seat and screw in the two seat screws being careful to not over tighten them. The seat should now work correctly.

Problem with seat hinges


The best fix here is to purchase two new seats which come with the hinges attached. they are easy for the home owner to install. You can get them at any home depot or lowes where u will have many choices of color, design etc. Be to sure to note whether your toilet seats are round or elongated as you will want a round sear for a round toilet and an elongated seat for an elongated toilet. get back if you have any questions. the new seats will cost 15-40 dollars each depending on which ones you select.
