Put your hand around the back of the seat and you will feel the nuts. Tighten them by simply turning them.

How to tighten an american standard toilet seat


They all work pretty much the same. Feel around the top rim of the bowl near where the tank meets the bowl you should find one bolt underneath on either side of the toilet seat. Tighten the nut under there to tighten the seat.

Self closing all in one tolet seat boxed, hidden screws, how to tighten


If you are trying to install a standard toilet seat on a special "smooth sides" toilet, it likely will not work. Most hidden bolt toilets come with a special seat because you cannot get to anything from below. This special seat has a set of expanding style bolts that are attached to the screw that is part of the seat. The plastic expanding bolt goes into the hole(s) on the toilet, and as you tighten the screw on the toilet seat bolts, they expand the plastic part in the hole of the ceramic toilet.

Kohler cimarron broken seat, replacement parts don't work 2x's


No do not use metal bolt and nut as this can crack the toilet. Just go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy 2 plastic bolts , 2 plastic wing nuts, and 2 plastic washers. Install with seat through toilet holes and tighten by hand until tight. I then use pliers to tight just a turn tighter and the seat should be center as you tightened one side, then the other, and back again until tight.

One side of the toilet seat has come loose and can be partially lifted


It'll take getting down on your hands and knees in front of a toilet, but oh well. :-) Look beneath the side that is loose. There will be a threaded plastic bolt coming down from the top of the toilet to below where you are looking. On this threaded bolt there is a nut that needs to be tightened. Reach up and tighten it as tight as you can with your fingers. To make it even tighter, use a pair of pliers... then just snug it firmly. For ease in getting it off another time (e.g. should you want to replace the seat cover), I suggest first taking the nut OFF. Then take plumbers silicone tape (found in the plumbing section at any hardware store; it looks like white thin, thin tape) and wrap the bolt with it. Note: you need to take pull the bolt out completely to do this. After wrapping it with silicone tape, insert it back into the hole, and then twist the nut back on; snugging-up with a pair of pliers. This will keep the nut from working itself off, and will make the nut come off easy should you ever desire. Good luck.... :-)

The toilet seat is very loose and I can't figure out how to tighten it. Please help! Its about to come off completely Thanks


Usually there are plastic caps that snap down over the bolt head.
Shut toilet lid and get down close with a flashlight.

Seat attaches in two places.
Reach underneath and you can feel two bolts with nuts.
You don't need to see them, just feel with your hand.

The bolt head is covered with a plastic cover.
The cover is added for aesthetic purpose only.
Use small screwdriver or fingernail file or nail or scissors to pry up the cover and reveal bolt head.

Use bigger screwdriver to tighten bolts.
You may have to keep one hand on underside to hold nut while turning bolt clockwise.
Another trick is use hand to push bolt all the way up, and then finger tighten bolt most of the way, and use screwdriver for last few turns.

Tighten bolts good and tight, but don't overdo it.
Bolts will come loose again and you can tighten more later.

Trying to change the toilet seat,however cannot remove the screws. They come out about maybe 3/4" and keep spinning. Looking inside the tank as well as feeling inside there are no nuts connecteing to...


Try using some upward pressure on the bolts while turning them, using a pair of Channel Lock pliers (aka arc-joint pliers). This may stabilize the nuts into which the bolts are threaded. When installing the seat and reinstalling the bolts, a downward pressure may be required into to tighten them properly.

How to stop seat from wobbling doesnt seem to have screws that fo into seat just a place for seat to sit on and then some cap to put over but nothing seems to tighten it.Im tired of falling off the toilet


First lift the covers off where the bolts should be (they should lift towards the tank). Are the bolts in place? If not, go to your neighborhood hardware store and look for replacement hardware. (Most stores will have staff willing to help you find the right parts.) Is the bowl damaged so that the holes seem large compared to the holes in the seat anchor points? Are the seat anchor points damaged?

The bolts should have nuts (and possibly washers, but not all models use them) underneath the bowl. Screw down the bolt while holding the nut from turning (so you need an adjustable wrench or appropriately sized wrench). Again see the local hardware store for the hardware if you do not have the nuts. Keep the seat centered as you tighten the bolts. (Alternate tightening until it is stable - do not tighten one bolt all the way down before doing the other side. You risk overtightening and cracking the bowl.)

I hope this helps.

(if the seat is damaged, you may want to replace it. If the bowl is damaged you must replace that.)

Missing bolt for toilet seat


A standard toilet seat bolt should be fine. There are some with a rubber boot that expands as tightened but you should be able to reach the nut by reaching into the tank and under the lip. The new nut & bolt should be plastic so they won't corrode.

How do you tighten bolts on Kohler toilet seats the bolt has a plastic cap?


The caps are at the back of the toilet seat. Just under the cap cover are the bolts. You will need a meduim sized flat screw driver. Hold the nut on the bottom and use the screw driver to tighten.

The covers pry up with a small screw driver IF they are square.

If they are more circular with ears they rotate counter clockwise about 30 degrees, Then lift the lid off.
