Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IAmTheJudgeOfNoOne Nice toilet seat!
This is a solid piece of equipment where I mean it is sturdy and not made of cheap material, yet comfortable as well. The instructions were pretty straight forward and easy to follow. I like that it is removable if you want to deep clean the seat and/or the toilet. This replaces a similar seat that was not as good in quality and it attached differently. I like this one better because it stays in place as long as the bolt caps are closed. You open the caps and the seat lifts right off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EDDIE I'm amazed on how fast it takes to install the toilet seat within a minute.
This toilet seat is such an easy task to install. I found it harder to remove my old seat cover than having to install this new toilet seat. It took me about 5 minutes to remove my old seat cover and under one minute to install the new toilet seat. I'm overall happy with this toilet seat but I failed to measure prior to ordering the seat cover. The toilet seat fits a elongated toilet. Which in my case it doesn't fit my rounded toilet oops. Besides that it was a super easy, fast installation and I can simply say I like this toilet seat. Also, this toilet seat has a easy clean feature that allows you to completely remove the seat from the bowl for easy cleaning. I guess I should probably get a new toilet to fit this toilet seat. I'm due for a new toilet anyway. I've tried it on my other toilet and its way to elongated.

I've used other snap in/ quick change toilet seats and thought this would be like those. But it isn't. It has a snap in but also requires you to twist the bolt till it breaks off. That's how it never lessens. That's good, but I wonder about what happens when the normal usage which would normally lead to loosening instead can't loosen. Will it break? Not so far.
The big down side for me is also part of its upside. It is heavy and solid. And it does slam. Many new seats come with an anti-slam tightening system. This doesn't. But it is so solid and comfortable that I'm willing to ignore this in the adult bathroom. In the kid's I would not get this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CathyMMM Solid to the core and very comfortable
The instructions were easy to follow and it only took a few minutes to install it. The only issue I have is that there is a reference to it being an easy clean and change seat. There is a picture with this information on the box but there is no information packed in the box with the seat's installation instructions. The instructions suggest going to the Bemis website for more help. I only found written and video instructions on the installation of the seat but still no instruction on the "easy change" procedure to remove the seat. None of the reviews mentioned this problem. I'm not comfortable in just twisting the seat off it's hinges to accomplish an "easy change" for cleaning. The Church brand of toilet seat the I replaced was truly an "easy change" seat. You just unlock the seat bolt covers by twisting to the indicated unlock position and it lifted off with ease. Maybe Bemis should check out Church and learn a few points to help their product marketing

I had another elongated Bemis toilet seat that was just starting to have the chrome separate from the hinge hardware. The seat had lasted for many years. This unit seemed to fit the bill as a replacement. The hardware was very easy to install. The hardware is a hard plastic so I should not have corrosion issues with this unit. The lift off feature is nice for thorough cleaning. I can not attest to the never loosen claim because we have an aftermarket bidet on the bowl so we will never have a perfect seat attachment. This is not the slow close variety though.
Overall a good design and a simple install. I have hope this will provide years of faithful service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MatthewParsons Not Cheap Plastic
Not like the cheap flimsy plastic ones that come with inexpensive toilets. You know, the ones you fell like you're going to fall through if you sit on the lid. Good, sturdy, inexpensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LILass Easy to install and clean
The seat is solid wood. I like wood because I can sit on the cover and it doesn’t sink in. The finish is ok, not as smooth as porcelain, and slightly less glossy. There's a raised seam along the cover's brim that would have been better placed 1/8" lower, along the bottom edge. The white color matches my American Standard toilet fine. (It matches better in person than in my pics.) Wood seats tend to discolor after a couple of years, but I haven't owned this one long enough to know yet.
It was a snap to install and the instruction brochure was simple and a breeze to follow with good illustrations.
Once installed, you can flip the nut covers up and simply pull the entire seat right off the bolt clips to clean the toilet surface and then drop it right back on again…makes that nasty area around the bolts easier to clean!
I recommend this product!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JCB Seems to be good quality
This wooden seat is replacing a wooden seat that held up about a year before staining. I'm not sure if this is the nature of wooden seats or indicative of a low quality wooden seat. Several brands, wood versus plastic and slow closing versus traditional was considered. Many/most of the slow closing didn't seem to close very well in some of the testing that was done. The traditional closing lid was chosen.
One of the important features considered was the construction of the lid. Many of the lids appears to have "sharp" edges with a visible joint in the laminate. This seat seemed to have a rounded edge which may hold up better over time. The other important feature is what type of hardware mounts the seat to the toilet. It is one of the few in store that have plastic hardware rather than metal hardware. Many times the hardware rusts when it's metal My experience has been more with plastic hardware most to 100 percent of the time. It seemed a little difficult to find what in my opinion was a quality seat without metal hardware.
This hardware, as was noticed in many brands, has bolts that break off when maximum tightness is reach. This lid also lifts away from the toilet for easy cleaning which is a nice feature to clean better around the hinges.
In considering plastic versus wood the plastic lids seem to thin, light and flimsy. A plastic slow-close was considered. Due to it's light weight and the way the slow close works it didn't go completely down sometimes and had to be forced. Surprisingly the plastic lid was a Kohler and considering the price the construction was acceptable and if it wasn't a slow close it might have been a good option. The other plastic options just didn't seem to have a good quality and looked rather cheap.
I would give this seat five stars but holding out to see how well it cleans and resists any staining over time. The marketing and packaging boasts of "easy clean" but it doesn't stress anything about durability of the finish and/or resistance to staining. it may be the nature of wooden seats. Time will tell with this. If it follows the path of the replacement I'll consider plastic again which seems like it would be naturally more stain resistant as well as easier to clean.
