TOOLS & MATERIALS
- Toilet Seat
When taking on this DIY task, be sure to equip yourself with the proper safety gear.
Remove old seat. Your toilet seat will be attached with bolts located underneath the toilet lid and behind the bowl. Use a wrench to unscrew the nuts and remove the bolts and toilet seat.
Install bolts. Feed your new toilet seat’s bolts through the two holes at the back of the rim.
Fasten new seat. Locate the bolts on the underside of the lid behind the bowl, then thread the new nuts onto the bolts by hand, tightening as needed. If your bolts are not pre-attached, snap the toilet seat into place.
Your installation is complete! Step back and admire your sparkling new toilet seat.
