Q:Would the mounting system for this seat allow the installation of a bidet attachment in between the toilet bowl and the seat?
by|Jul 8, 2020
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  No idea! Otherwise a pretty easy install. If it helps, the gap between the seat and the porcelain is approximately 1.5 inches.

by|Jul 11, 2020

A:  The bolts for this model are 2" long. it depends on thickness of the bidet attachment and porcelain if it would be long enough. Please be aware that attachment is raising the seat in hinge area and may add additional pressure on the seat. We recommend plastic seats for Bidet attachments they are more flexible.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Elongated come in one size. For a smaller toilet seat, you will need to get a round toilet seat.

    by|May 11, 2020

      A:  no but i use mine on a round toilet and it works fine. hanging over is no big deal

      by|May 10, 2020

        A:  I know you asked about elongated seats. At the risk of being too obvious, are you sure you don't need a round seat? The standard dimension of a round seat is 15.4 inches.

          A:  No, it is not made of recycled wood .

          by|Jan 4, 2020

            A:  Yes it is and mine did not hold up.

            by|May 11, 2020

            A:  It's made of plastic covered particle or chip board, who knows what the source of the chips are. I'd expect from whatever the cheapest source is. Maybe old toilet seats.

                                      A:  I have never had a problem with these seats. Bring it back to the store or maybe you are putting it on wrong.

                                      by|Sep 24, 2019

                                      A:  There is no question. Just a statement. There should be two bolts and two nuts to hold the brackets to the toilet then the seat fits over the brackets and locks on.

                                          A:  I came across this video on how to install this toilet seat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i56HCg-Ld3A

                                          by|Aug 30, 2019

                                          A:  That's too bad, and of course, a packing mistake is always possible! Take the hardware to Home Depot and ask the salesperson to compare it with what is packed with the units in the store. (I hope they'd exchange it for you on the spot). Before you do that, though, consider that you have to push really hard to get the "seat" side to fit down on the "toilet" side BEFORE you turn the "seat" side locking tops. I mean REALLY hard. I didn't, and the seat worked, but other users complained it seemed loose. It was! I finally got the trick but not till a few tries.

                                          A:  Jackie, Thank you for contacting Bemis Manufacturing. This seat features an Easy Clean and Change hinge, and this feature causes you to need to install the seat differently than a traditional style hinge. To install this seat you will need to attach the bolt to the toilet bowl with out the toilet seat. Once the bolt is attached tot he toilet bowl bring your seat over and have the caps to the hinges twisted to the left, place the seat on the bowl and push down on the hinges. The hinges will clip over the heads of the bolts. You are now able to wist the caps to the hinges back to the right, and your seat is installed.For further assistance, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1.888.722.6488.

                                            A:  The hardware is correct. To install this seat, follow these steps: 1.

                                                      A:  This should answer. Measured seat--lid closed--14 across by 16 down. Keep in mind the main thing, after the general dimensions, to worry about is the two holes in the back, which seem to be pretty standard. I'm no handyperson but this was an easy install, even for a first-timer.
