        A:  I do not know about the prop 65 status of my Venetian pink seat, but I think it is a wooden based toilet seat that is then painted in some way.

          A:  viola, Thank you for contacting Bemis Manufacturing. We apologize for any concern or confusion that this is causing you. 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.

                            A:  Rw2860, Thank you for contacting Bemis Manufacturing, This is a round size seat, and toilet seats come in two standard sizes: Round and Elongated. 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.

                                      Q:Does this toilet seat stay secure? I want to replace a toilet seat that constantly moves and loosens.

                                      A:  The reason your toilet seat loosens is because you're putting all of your weight on one side of the seat when you wipe. If you raise yourself straight up a few inches to wipe, the seat (and the bolts that hold the toilet to the floor) will not loosen.

                                      A:  Yes it stays very secure. The hardest part was actually removing the old seat. This new one only requires installing the two mounting posts and then snapping the seat in place. Easy to unsnap for cleaning unlike other seats. Also I now plan to order another for our second bathroom as this one has worked so well.

                                      A:  Kaz, Thank you for contacting Bemis Manufacturing. This seat will secure to your toilet bowl. You do need to make sure that you have the hinge caps twisted to the right to the lock position for the seat to be fully secured to your bowl. We do manufacture a seat that is very similar to this model except that the hinge does not have the Easy Clean and Change feature, this is model 500TTT 000. The 500TTT 000 seat is available for purchase with Home Depot. For further assistance, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1.888.722.6488.

This seat does not have the Whisper Close Hinge, so when you go to close the seat or the lid you will want to place the seat or lid down or there is a possibility of slamming.For further assistance, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1.888.722.6488.

Because each model is different this requires a different model number. Most elongated seats are about the same length and that length is approximately 18 1/2 inch from the center of the bolt to the outer edge of the seat. If you would like you would be able to visit our web site www.toiletseats.com to view our seats and the specification sheets for the seat. The specification sheets will show you exactly what the seat measures so that you are able to compare to your bowl.For further assistance, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1.888.722.6488.

                                                                    A:  The elongated sizing will be universal and should fit most 2-peice toilets and newer 1-piece toilets. The price differences come in variations; color, wood or plastic, thickness of material, slow-close or non-slow-close, quick release or standard mount, etc...

                                                                    by|Nov 19, 2018

                                                                      A:  either measure you current seat from the mounting bolt holes to the front edge of the seat, or measure from the mounting holes to the front edge of the porcelain bowl. Compare that measurement to the sizes listed and the closest one should be your choice.

                                                                      by|Nov 16, 2018

                                                                        by|Nov 19, 2018

What bothered me more was that the lift off feature. It took several times to get the lock to work. Every time the toilet was used, the seat came up.
