I bought elongated. A little long, but I installed it anyway.
When the seat is new I found that I needed to tilt it a bit to start the closing. Over time it loosens up and I don't need to do it as much. There is no way to adjust it.
Yes, it will chip off. I’ve had this toilet seat for about two years and the chrome is chipping/flaking off of the hinges. I can’t see how to get replacement hinges.
Most rails with which I am familiar are free-standing around the bowl and do not attach to the toilet. Not knowing what you have, it is difficult to appraise it, but I would not recommend attaching rails to the toilet unit. After all, if you expect to need the rails, you are expecting to put some force on them, and the toilet is not designed to feel with that. I cared for my parents for eight years, and I would not consider any arrangement for rails other than free standing on the floor.
No, the bolts screw in from the bottom ,then you bolt it from underneath
If it has a standard elongated bowl yes
This seat attaches to the bowl part of the toilet. If the bolt is cracked, it entire toilet needs to be replaced.
I am in the heavy weight category but less than 300 lb.s. I have no problem with this seat and originally bought it because I didn't want it to keep coming loose. This toilet seat was perfect for me.
