Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hootiep Product is everything it's touted to be
These toilet seats/lids are everything they are touted to be. Installation was so easy - I installed 3 sets in 30 minutes. At a simple touch the lid closes. No slamming. I'm considering the purchase of one more for the powder room. Great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reny My family is "in love" with this seat.
My family actually keep saying over and over that they are in "love" with the seat. Especially the soft close. On my end, installation was easy and I like it too. I preferred wood over plastic as all the plastics seemed to have scratches. I am wondering how the heavier wood will affect the soft close hinge, which I guess we will see over time. But so far everything works great.
Only two small points: there was a very small spot on the lid (the size of a pinhead) where the paint had chipped. Also, the overall size was perfect but the back of my bowl seemed a little more elongated than the new seat. Consequently, if I look from behind (which you never do anyway, b/c how do you get behind the toilet?) I can see the bowl between the hinge and the edge of the toilet seat. However, from the hinge to the front edge still fit perfectly and you would never know so I was fine with this. See the attached photo.
There is a decorative groove around the edge of the lid, which didn't show well on the product photo. I'd prefer it w/o since those are usually dust collectors, but was unable to find one in wood soft-close for a good price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by noname001 It cracked and it comes off mounting bolts!
It has a good hard finish which we liked because it would not get scratched easily. However, just a few weeks after installing this seat it cracked straight across the seat "ring" (you know, the part you seat on) when a house guest was using it. It made a loud cracking pop sound when it broke. We taped the crack so we could use it until we get back to Home Depot to get our money back. While we were using it with the taped cracked seat one mounting bolt cap worked loose and the seat slammed down when it was being closed. Not a good experience with this toilet seat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Great product but taking a risk with wood
I've had this product for over 2 years and they have been great. Nice & sturdy and easy to install.
I'm not sure how long one of these is supposed to last but cleaning these over time will start to take the paint off, and it appears not to be clean, when it is.
I personally think the price and a 2 year life expectancy is a great deal for the quality product. If you want a sturdy quality product this will a great purchase. Just note, you may be buying a new one a couple of years later.
Guess it's the price you pay for wood.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sdurcho Wrong dimensions
This seat is not 14.125" wide as stated, it's actually 13.5 on the one that we installed. It is 1/2 inch too narrow that the bowl is exposed outside the seat dimensions when looking down from a standing view. Seat looks too small.
The soft close feature works very well, it's a good quality for the price and very easy installation. Just be careful of the dimensions and make sure it's correct before you install and throw away the box, etc.
