We have one of these seats installed on our toilet and the hinge broke. We now need to replace it and the nut seems to be permanently attached to the bolt.

Answer: 
The first step was to get the seat and cover off, because they are heavy and unwieldy. So, initially, I had to unscrew eight hinges (four on each side--two on the cover and two on the seat). Some of the screws were extremely tight, and I had to use several different size screwdrivers, hoping that I would not completely strip the screws.

The first step was to get the seat and cover off, because they are heavy and unwieldy. So, initially, I had to unscrew eight hinges (four on each side--two on the cover and two on the seat). Some of the screws were extremely tight, and I had to use several different size screwdrivers, hoping that I would not completely strip the screws. The last screw did become stripped, so I used a large flathead screwdriver to try and force it out of the seat. That last hinge snapped, and a piece flew into the toilet. I would have to fish it out, but at least I could finally remove the seat.
The bolts were a nightmare to get out. There is no mechanism on the nut assembly to untighten it. To make matters worse, my toilet is in a nook with very little space along the sides of the toilet.
On one side, the side with the most space, I took pliers and held the nut piece in place with pliers. Then by holding on as tightly as I could to the flexing, multi-piece hinge, I finally unscrewed the nut combination from below. I had to stretch out on the floor, with my head past the edge of the toilet. Unscrewing took a very long time. The pliers could only do very small turns because the recess where it was located was very small. But once I got the long nut piece unscrewed, I could lift out the bolt.
On the other side, where there was less clearance, I got a mirror to try and see if I could manipulate the nut. There was not enough room to stretch out and be able to get my hand/arm in place. So I figured that my only option was to try and get the hinge off first. Adding to the difficulty was the fact that the four hinge pieces kept flapping against the porcelain (I was concerned about scratches). I did finally manage to unscrew it. But then I was left with the situation that even though the bolt had no head, everything was way too long to slip out from the bottom.
I tried to use a hacksaw to take off the excess, but didn't make much headway other than making a few gouges. I couldn't find anything that would cut into the hard nylon or plastic nut assembly, so that route was out. I spent several hours agonizing over what to do, searching the internet, and trying to come up with a way to deal with the head of the bolt. At once point, I thought I might have to go out and purchase a bolt cutter (the heavier-duty ones aren't cheap). But finally, I decided to try angling out the bolt from the bottom, pulling the nut assembly as far away from the hole as possible. Probably because of the gouges in the top of the bolt, there was just enough clearance to slip it out.
Perhaps I didn't have the right blade on my hacksaw. I had also tried a jig saw. I had a dremel, but not a metal cutting blade--the closest place to purchase one was 30 miles away. But I feel strongly that the manufacturer should have given instructions in the manual for how to remove this toilet seat, rather than leaving it up to the customer to try and figure it out on their own. If there are tools you have to have, it would be way better to know this in advance. Perhaps this seat is so difficult to remove that any instruction was a deliberate omission. Read Less

The white 5" tool that came with the set you use to tighten the screws you now use to loosen the two nuts. You may have to apply turning torque to the left because the nuts are tight after installation.

It will come off with a 1/2" (I think) deep socket wrench. It's not hard, it's like taking off a nylock nut.

Hi Sophie B,
Sorry to hear about your removal issues. Based on the toilet seat you posted your question on, it appears you have a STA-TITE nut and bolt system.
This STA-TITE nut should be easily removed with the same wrench used to tighten the nut. STA-TITE nuts are design to have a break-off head when the perfect tightening pressure is achieved, to ensure it is neither over-tightened or under-tightened.
If your nut does not remove relatively easily, more troubleshooting would be needed. I would recommend contacting Bemis Customer Service to help troubleshoot.
I hope that helps!

Answer: 
This seat measures at 18.5 in. so if you need something longer this seat is not the right choice for you.
To help find a proper toilet seat size, please include the following dimensions of your bowl:
•Length - From center of bolt holes to front of bowl
•Width - Side to side at widest point
•Bolt Spread - Distance between the two bolt holes
•Round - ~16.5" length and 5.5" Bolt Spread
•Elongated - ~18.5"

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Quality has gone down-hill I have purchased four of these in the last 10-12 years for the same commode. I usually replace them after a couple of years or so because the finish on the hinges starts to peel. I feel like two or three years is a reasonable time frame for this product and the peeling may be caused by my cleaning products as well. However, I had to replace one in December because the seat cracked and now the one I bought in December cracked after only 5 months of use. I buy this style for the satin nickel hinges, which look significantly better than plastic or chrome, but I'll be looking for a different brand this time. May 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would Not Buy This Brand Again. As the manufacturer claims, this toilet seat absolutely does not slip and slide. In their product videos, they emphasize that installer won't have callbacks for loose seats. This is the only virtue that I found. The white paint did chip (only slightly) but did discolor over wider areas. And unlike most other toilet seats, there are no screws at the top to make for an easy replacement. In fact, it was a complete nightmare to get this seat off my toilet (see Q&A for more detail). The hinge pieces are supposed to be corrosion-proof; however I did find corrosion on the undersides. Overall, the painted wood was not that easy to clean, so I have chosen another material. And I've made sure my next toilet seat will be easier to swap out. May 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great toilet seat. Installed easily and seems to be working great so far. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bemis Sta-Tite Elongated Closed Front Toilet Seat Got my new seat for my thrown and it feels comfortable May 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid this one Love the look, feels sturdy, but seat cracked in less than 6 weeks. Would not buy again. Can't return because I don't have the receipt or packaging. Who expects to have to return a toilet seat? May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good metal hinges/bolts, bad plastic bushings/nuts Plastic bushings that go over the bolts have ribs that are forced into the commode holes as you tighten down the seat. While tightening them the plastic nut stripped out. Bushings were too wide; had to trim them with a rotary tool, then find a metal nut and washer to fit. Got it installed, but a lot of trouble. Hope it doesn't crack; will read reviews next time. April 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One good seat It is well constructed. I did have a little difficulty mounting it becase it has a little different mounting system. However, this system makes sure you don't overtighten the monting bolts an helps to maintain seat stability. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by no more pinched but Easy to install Thick unlike the one that came with our new toilet. April 12, 2016
