"Really nice quality product with a very good finish. A perfect fit on my aging Armitage Shanks toilet. Very quick and easy to fit - took less time to fit than it did to get the old seat off - and rock solid.
Definitely would recommend it.

"I found this seat very easy to install. I even comes with spacers to stop the threads from slipping in the fixing holes.
Good quality seat, good price!

Excellent toilet seat

"Nice and solid, good quality plastic seat with metal hinges and bolts. Hinges are pre-fitted so no fiddly parts to assemble. Plenty of positioning holes in the hinge bases so you won't have problems fitting this to just about any loo. What really impressed me was the fixing system, long plastic threaded nuts which tighten with a spanner - when the correct torque is reached the ends just twist off locking the fixing in place! No way this seat is ever going to come loose!
And it's nice to see that is is made in the UK.

No more wonky stained seats

"First impressions are that the seat is stylish but a bit lightweight. Bought for 'statite' feature and after 1 years heavy use they are still in good shape. Thermoplastic is tough and easy to keep pristine. Special locking is brilliant - stays put and is easy to loosen and retighten. Only downside are top hinges. Silver starting to blister/rust.Not such good quality and the seat will outlast them. Also is a bit fiddly getting clear seals under hinges in place when tightening up but can be done. Highly recommend these in a heavy duty environment or if you are fed up with seats working loose."

The plastic washers are a little frustrating but otherwise fine."

"I have used these seats professionally and find them easy to keep hygienic and also don't have to spend time constantly re-tightening them the Sta-tite system does what I have been doing at home for years it uses a simple collar to take up the space between the ceramic bowl and the bolt coupled with a plastic nut that is tightened till it snaps off to produce the perfect torque.
I have just bought two for my own home.

it's a toilet seat!
28 Jun 2014

"Actually suprisingly good for the price. Needed to be installed in an HMO as previous seats were not lasting too long. Good points, preassembled hinges. Bushes on the bolts stopped the seat hinges wobbling in the holes in the pan giving a firm fixing. Bad points. The bushes that prevent the hinges moving about do not allow much adjustment of the seat position. There is no such thing in life as "one size fits all" hence compromising on position. Although ther are 5 alternative fixing positions for the fixings you can not always fit it centrally on pan. Fittings seem to have been updated but not instructions. Easy fit, (some people should not be sold these) 13mm spanner and small screwdriver to locate washers. Would use again for similar locations."

Hinges tarnish
18 Feb 2013
By
, Coventry
"Excellent seat, easy to fit and as it says they do not come loose and move about. I work in a hotel.The only drawback is the hinges do start to rust what I feel is too soon. Let's face it at this price costs have been cut. If you want stainless hinges spend more money and buy the Nord Inox (61542) seat."

Upset by offset!
12 Jun 2014
By
, Sittingbourne
"The lid covers the whole of the bowl and would have been perfect if the seat had also covered the bowl. There is a border of 0.5mm showing the bowl on one side and a border of the seat overhangs by the same amount the other side. The various screw options were tried but with the same results on one side or the other. After spending a long time looking for this replacement toilet seat I was pleased to find one where all the measurements tallied. The old seat was broken so the new seat is meanwhile serving the purpose. If it had fitted perfectly I would have given 5 star rating all round."

Great Idea - Poorly Executed

"Just got done fitting three of these seats.
The glossy white hard thermoplastic material is good and rigid but somehow feels a bit cheap -though that might just be personal preference.
The StaTite system works extremely well, though I couldn't put my hand on the required 16mm spanner or socket (and I don't usually find myself short of tools). Luckily I turned up a 5/8" ring spanner. There isn't room working under and behind my loo for an adjustable. Time will tell if the seat works loose, but my initial impression is this is a fit-and-forget fixing.
My real bug bear is with the plastic washers supplied. These are a slightly recessed square shaped soft plastic items that sit between hinge and ceramic on the top of the pan. They are just fractionally too small. They cannot be attached to the hinge and then fitted to the pan as they just pop off. The instructions say to lay the washers in position on the pan, then offer the seat to the washers. This will result in crushed washers as their design does not encourage them to slip into place -quite the reverse in fact.
What should have been a 10 minute job took close to an hour. And then I had two more to fit. The new seat came dangerously close to becoming frizbee over the neighbour's fence. Patience is a virtue…
I succeeded in the end by tightening the StaTite nuts just barely enough to apply tension, then using a very slim 6" steel rule to ease the lip of the washer from under the hinge and around the hinge, then fully tightening the nut. A lot easier said than done. There may be a knack to it, but even after fitting the third seat I couldn't fathom an easy way.
Were it not for the washer issue, this would be a four star review. As it stands it only deserves two."
