Excellent toilet seat
10 Jan 2014
By Ardmark

"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
2 Oct 2012
By mrsdiynot

"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."

Hinges tarnish
18 Feb 2013
By Bodgitt
, 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."

"Seat is nice and made of good materials.
The grey bolt is a little flimsy though.

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."
