          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 bought mine over a year ago and the hardware was perfect. I am still using it.

              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. Representatives are available from 8am to 5pm, CST, Monday through Friday, and will be more than happy to assist you. Kindest Regards, Bemis Customer Service

                A:  The hardware is correct. To install this seat, follow these steps: 1. Place hardware, screw and wing nut, supplied with seat through holes in toilet as shown in figure 1.. Do NOT fully tighten at this time. 2. Place seat over mounting hardware as shown in figure 2. 3. Center seat over bowl and then fully tighten wing nuts it to bowl. 4. To secure seat to bowl, rotate seat covers as shown in figure 3. Hope this helps you!

                      A:  Please see link below from The Home Depot website- all dimensions included. https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/3b/3bedbbc8-8dd6-4099-9dc7-8dafd05f1237.pdf

                        A:  This one is NEARLY 15.5 inches front to back & NEARLY 14.5 inches side to side.

                        by|Jul 20, 2019

                        A:  The dimensions of all of the Bemis toilet seats are shown on the Bemis website. https://www.bemisseats.com/models/500EC http://images.salsify.com/image/upload/s--SNPxjPZP--/cqtrvoyjloy2zeynecsw.pdf

                        A:  This seat is 14 1/2" X 15 1/2"

                        by|Jul 25, 2019

                          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.

Unfortunately on some sites a proposition 65 warning will will be tagged, automatically to the seat because of one of the words that is used to describe the seat. All of our seats as safe and have gone through testing to ensure that the seats pass the proposition 65 criteria. For further assistance, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1.888.722.6488.

Round size is about 16.5 inches long, while Elongated size is about 2 inches longer at 18.5 inches. To measure, you typically measure the bowl to determine the size. Once you know the size, you should feel confident that a seat of the same size will fit. You want to measure the bowl from the center of the bolt holes to the front of the bowl. Any given bowl can be give/take a fraction of an inch but they should be close to 16.5 or 18.5 inches. For further assistance, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1.888.722.6488.
