The installation was simple. At first when I looked inside the box I thought I might struggle figuring out how to install it. But it turned out to be so simple I really didn't need the directions. I even used my old chain which made it even easier. My sister inlaw even got one because her husband is germaphobe. I did have to check where the 4 pads go and found out they stabilize the lid. I removed my handle and plugged the hole with the hole cover provided, my sister Inlaw left hers on. It even comes with 4 alkaline batteries which is a plus because many times you need to purchase them separate. I have pictures of my unit and my sister in laws so you can see the two different applications. I wouldn't have expected anything less from Kohler.

I installed this KOHLER Touchless Toilet Flush Kit in our guest bath room wanted to have our guest comfortable and also wanted to keep thins sanitize. this KOHLER Touchless Toilet Flush Kit is a great idea as to not have every one touch the flusher before washing hands. Keeping any germs away form each guest as they use the restroom. No more touching no more germs on the handle .

Installation was much easier than I imagined. The directions are clear and easy to follow. It is easily hung from the tank and connected to the existing flush mechanism. Install the batteries, put the lid back on the tank and it's ready to go. They even provide a sticker for the top of the tank so it is obvious where you need to pass your hand over to flush the toilet. I found the sensor is good at detecting when to flush.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan I love the touchless experience
The touch-less kit is a breeze to install. Any DIYer can mount it easily. It does not require any plumbing skills, I followed the installation instructions and everything worked out just fine.
All it does is spins the kit’s wheel assembly one time when it senses a movement above the sensor area. Due to its spinning motion, the chain lifts the flapper and that triggers the flush.
So, the whole purpose of it is to engage the flapper assembly much like when you press the handle and the chain lifts the flapper. If your toilet flapper empties out the entire tank on each flush, it will still do that. Only difference? It will do that with motion detection.
I had been using a toilet tank that actually came with the similar kit pre-installed. It had worked really well for 8+ months and then one day it started triggering the flush without someone triggering it. So, I installed this kit as a replacement to my original and so far it is working fine.
I talked to Kohler about it and the company suggests that it could happen if moisture is trapped in the battery housing. I analyzed the old battery housing and I believe it to be the case.
2nd, I have noticed that the sensing area range shrinks as the kit becomes older. When it was new, it could sense my hand from 6-7 inches away. As it became older, it could sense only when the hand was within 3-4 inches range. But still, I am not touching any surface and the experience is still touch-less.
In my overall experience, touch-less experience is priceless and I love the product, love the brand, Kohler customer service is prompt and does her best to resolve if any issues arise and for that I recommend it.

My family likes to call me a germophobe (I prefer "germ conscious"), so needless to say I was pretty darn excited to get this item. What's really cool about it, and I don't understand how it works, is it detects the hand motion through the lid of the top tank. I thought I was going to have to run a wire/sensor out the back and up to the top of the lid, but that's not the case - the whole device is contained within the tank. Installation took a little trial an error (multiple slots in the mounting bracket, and chain length), but overall is pretty simple. The kit works so well I'm planning on getting two more... money well spent if it helps prevent illnesses, in my opinion.

Even though we are not a particularly germophobic household, everyone still enjoyed and appreciated the installation of the touchless flush kit in our guest bathroom. It wasn't a necessity, but a novelty of sorts that made that room feel a bit more "high end."
Installation is fairly straightforward. Take your time with it, and you can adjust the height to fit a variety of toilet models. The closer the sensor is to the top of the tank, the better.
Battery life stills seems good after 5-6 months of light to medium usage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hurwizzle The Kit That Lets You Touch Less
**Please watch my included video showing this product in action.**
The Kohler Touchless Toilet Flush Kit allows you to easily convert almost any standard toilet into a touchless toilet - no more handles to push.
Installation is a breeze. Follow the easy-to-understand instructions and you'll be done in no more than 10 minutes.
You have the option to leave the traditional handle in place so that the toilet can be operated as a traditional or touch-free toilet, but, really, what's the point of going touchless if people can still choose the old-school option.
My only reason for not giving this Touchless Flush Kit a 5/5 is that the sensor seems a bit weak to me. I have to hold my hand within 1" of the toilet and can't wave my hand too quickly over it, so isn't totally quick and convenient. That being said, though, I still appreciate the convenience, cleanliness, and, let's be honest, novelty of having my toilet be touchless.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BilltheEngineer It works, but the range to sense your hand is not that great
I do recommend this product but there could be a few improvements to make it better.
Install is easy and only takes a few minutes.
The improvement I would like to see is more options on how it can be installed so it works better with more toilets. The bracket that attached the unit to the tank basically only allow for one type of install configuration. I looked at the three toilet I have in my home and it would only really install and work well on one of them. One a a no go completely and the one I did install it on for the most part works.
The challenge of the install it to get the top of the unit to be as close as possible to underside of the tank lid. The bracket supplied to install the unit only allow for height adjustments. There is no way to adjust for a non-vertical tank wall or to move the unit closer to the center of the tank.
For my install I ended up bending the bracket and make it work, but still can not get it right against the underside of the tank lid. As a result you need to almost touch the tank lid to activate it. So most people just touch the sticker on the lid or say it does not work that see it.
If the mounting hardware had more options and was improved I would give it another star.
