Can we replace one of the hinges on which the small plastic tab broke that the child seat clips on to?

An adult sat on the kiddie seat by mistake and broke one of the clips that the kiddie seat clips on to. It appears that replacing one of the hinges should resolve the problem. Is it possible to obtain the needed part to complete the repair? We have the elongated whisper close toilet seat in white.

Does this one fit a Kohler elongated toilet? Or do you have to get one specific to the brand name toilet you have? Not sure if it's universal?

Do you make a toilet seat with a bump for boys?

My son is too young to use something without a bump and I would like him to aim in the toilet. The potty chair he uses has a pronounced upward bump between his legs, so when he urinates, it doesn't go outside his potty chair.
Asked by: ChitownMama
Thank you for your inquiry. I regret to inform you that Bemis Mfg. does not offer any of our seats with a boys splash-guard (bump). Kindest Regards, Charmaine

The Adult seat part cracked, what do we need to do to replace it?

We have had the seat for about two months, and the seat cracked in half when I went to the bathroom tonight. This is not a high volume bathroom, it is used primarily by our 26 mo. old. We love the seat for our son, and am irritated that I would need to get a new one? What, if anything, can we do to get this replaced?

Need to know if these are "ADA" approved seats.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Handyman, Here's the ADA law regarding toilets/seats: "4.16.3* Height. The height of water closets shall be 17 in to 19 in (430 mm to 485 mm), measured to the top of the toilet seat. (See Fig. 29(b) (attached)). Seats shall not be sprung to return to a lifted position. Appendix Note *Appendix Note A4.16.3 Height. Height preferences for toilet seats vary considerably among disabled people. Higher seat heights may be an advantage to some ambulatory disabled people, but are often a disadvantage for wheelchair users and others. Toilet seats 18 in (455 mm) high seem to be a reasonable compromise. Thick seats and filler rings are available to adapt standard fixtures to these requirements." We classify any seat that does not "spring back to a lifted position" as ADA compliant because the rest of the law is subjectively variable depending on the needs of the person and what bowl it is installed on. The law talks about the height from the floor to the top of the seat as being between 17-19 inches and the average seat ring adds maybe 1 - 1.5 inches depending on the seat. If you have a 16 - 18 inch high bowl, then pretty much most seats will be considered ADA compliant. If you have a shorter bowl, you will need a higher seat, which we do make 2 and 3 inch lift seats and we do have a 3 inch lift spacer that a seat can install onto for 4 or more inches of extra height. So the final answer is "it depends on the bowl and your the personal needs of the user". The 1583SLOW has approximately 1 inch of height on the ring (2 inches if you include the cover height) and it does not spring back into the up position (something we call "self rising" in the industry). I hope that has given you enough information to determine if this seat will fit your ADA needs. Regards, Bemis Manufacturing Company

What type of tools do i need in order to install this toilet seat.

Asked by: momof2
All you'll need to install this seat is a wrench and a flathead screwdriver. I don't remember the size of wrench, but if you have an adjustable crescent wrench you won't have to worry about that.

Customer Reviews

NextStep Elongated Closed Front Toilet Seat in White is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from great, but broke If I had reviewed this a few months ago, it would have been much higher. I love the toddler seat attachment. It did start scratching the main seat a little, but I can live with that. Unfortunately, the toddler seat starting becoming unattached too often. Every time my toddler would put it down, it would come off and she would need my help getting it back on (so yeah, annoying). Then the peg that holds the toddler seat broke on one side (because it was going on and off so much I'm sure). We had it less than a year. I contacted the company to see if anything can be done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! We used to have to pull our Elmo kids seat insert out of the cabinet each time. This is brilliant. The seat is built-in to the upper lid and held in place with a magnet. All you do is pull it down when you want to use it, otherwise any normal adult using the toilet would probably not even notice it has a toddler seat built-in. This one is expensive, but is the only one I have found with the slow close lid. All you do is pull it past verical and it has some kind of shocks in it that lets it down real slow...also preventing loud lid slams and smashed fingers!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stains Easily / Cannot withstand common bathroom cleaning product. This seat takes up stains easily. Even the Bemis website warns that urine, sweat, toilet boil cleaners, and "most bathroom cleaners" will stain the seat and lid. Bemis website warns owners not use any product that contains "bleach, aerosols, vinegar, essential oils, cleaning wipes". Common bathroom cleaners like Kaboom will cause the paint to come off on your cleaning rag. This is a $50 toilet seat for children that cannot resist urine and sweat stains and whose paint can be stripped off with common bathroom cleaners! PIECE OF JUNK!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute a waste of money. An absolute waste of money. Children's part broke in two weeks, whole seat fell apart in a couple of months. Very poor quality plastic connections and material was used. DO NOT BUY IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooo much better than the seats you hang on the wall This was a quick 5 minute install, and we don't have to have one of those nasty potty seats on the floor that we have to empty every time, or one that goes off and on our full size toilet, and has something to hang it on the wall when not in use. Who wants that hanging on their bathroom wall? Anyway, bought a second one after we decided the first was working.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good quality but not easy for toddler to use I loved the idea of this seat but it was not good in practice. The child seat is very flat, my child could easily squirm around until no longer over the hole in the seat. Since it's so flat, even a girl leaning back a little can misfire over the top of the seat. is sort of small. The seat needs some more contour to let a little one know where they need to plant their tush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it this does exactly what we need it to do. we have a small bath so no room for her own potty seat and not really room to even store one that sits on top (and I don't really want to see one every time I walk in). The soft close hinges are good for a 2 year old that has to do everything herself. She doesn't slam the lid down. The magnet that holds the potty seat up when not in use is very strong. We've never had a problem with it falling and being in our way but she can still put it down herself. Also, the bolts that connect it to the toilet don't loosen over time. Very happy we spent the $ on this. If you are considering this one, go ahead and spend the $.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this product! I researched a lot of potty chairs and my husband wanted an insert little potty for our 2 year old. This one is sturdy, easy to install, my 21/2 year old can sit on it independently. It has a magnet to fasten the little seat to the lid, which is great because my son can lower it by himself. Others have a lock which is difficult for kids. The slow hinge is perfect and works great! I have 2 of them.
