Looking for a seat like 553CHSL with chrome hinges in BLUE.

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Gene 921, Unfortunately, we do not have a molded wood seat with metal hinges (including chrome) that comes in a blue color. Our metal hinge wood seats are only available in common white, biscuit and black colors. The only molded wood seat in a blue color is our 500EC (round size) /1500EC (elongated size) model. Otherwise, the 200SLOWT (round size) model is a premium plastic seat with popular features that can be found in various blue colors. I hope that helps! Bemis Manufacturing Company

Customer Reviews

STA-TITE Round Closed Front Toilet Seat in White is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from From 3-time loser: Excellent hinges, but the seat won't last. Last fall, I grew tired of the two old toilet seats in our house because they wouldn't stay tight no matter how often I ratcheted them down. At Home Depot, I was attracted to this Bemis Sta-tite model because the brushed chrome hinges looked solid and the installation method is fool-proof. I also liked the solidity of the molded-wood seats vs. the flimsy plastic models I had. Indeed, once installed, I was thrilled with how solid and stable both seats were. Within two months, however, one seat cracked as I sat down, pinching my thigh. Thinking I'd simply bought a lemon, I replaced it with the same model. Within two more months, it cracked again. I replaced it with a plastic model by another manufacturer. Yesterday, the other Bemis seat cracked. Today, I'm heading back to Home Depot, and I guarantee I won't be leaving with a Bemis toilet seat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money We have had this seat just 1 year and 1 month exactly. The chrome has pitted already and seat stains easily. For $30.00 + tax., it should last better than a year. Only thing that lasted was it stayed slow closing. Other than that its junk. I can get the same results with a junky seat for half the cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Particle Board Seat CRACKED I too purchased this seat for the "whisper close" hinges and loved the seat at first. I am now extremely frustrated with the product and the fact that Home Depot still stocks this toilet seat even though there are obvious manufacturing defects in it. The seat cracked on the left side several months after I installed it. I thought it was a fluke defect, a lemon, and returned it for a replacement. 3 months later (this week) the replacement seat broke in the same place! Unacceptable. Home Depot should not stock this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All our toilets use these These install (and uninstall) very easily - a well thought-out design - and look good, especially for such an affordable product. The gradual closing feature is smooth and reliable, and we have used them for years without any problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seaks crack easily Loved the seat until it cracked. Took it back for exchange. It also cracked in under 6 months. Both times on left side. I guess because I`m right handed. Called the company to complain. Customer service was very nice. I suggested the company add two more bumpers underneath. I exchanged it again and when the company sends me two more bumpers i will modify the seat because i like the way it closes slowly. They are also sending me a courtesy replacement. Will see how that works out. It is a shame I cannot recommend because of cracking !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One, twice, but not a thurd! OK. I thought this would be an excellent toilet seat because of the men in the house; quiet let! The first one cracked on the left side as I sat on it! OUCH! That pinched so hard I had tears. So I thought it was just a fluke so I replaced it. The second one cracked IN THE SAME PLACE as my husband sat on it! OK, now that isn't funny as I remembered the pain of it all. Since these seats are not cheap, I thought they would work out great and last a long time. Nope, 4.5 months later and I will NOT buy a third one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from like the slow close like that its slow close and wood but the crom hinge fades and there is no replacement

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet operation. Easy to install Foolproof installation eliminates guessing how tight to fasten hold downs to make proper installation without cracking bowl. Little ones can't catch fingers or make noise when closing.
