One of the most annoying things that you can experience on a toilet is a seat that isn’t attached properly. Feeling that thing sliding around underneath you can turn a bathroom visit into an adventure. It’s a common problem, especially with cheaply made seats, but it is easy enough to fix yourself. Your seat is usually attached with two bolts that are accessed from the top. Often these will be underneath a plastic cover or something similar to keep them out of sight.
If you decide to replace your seat, it is usually fairly easy to find a perfect match. There aren’t too many variations, but it is important to pay attention to whether your seat is elongated or not. This will make a big difference in how the seat fits. It is important to be careful when attaching the bolts since the toilet is made out of porcelain. If you over tighten, you risk cracking the seat, which could end up forcing you to buy a new toilet.
