Bemis Chicago STAY TIGHT Toilet Seat : This is made of wood which is not really suitable

Perfectly happy with this purchase, comfortable and functional.

Good if it wasn’t for the paint coming off. . Initially impressed but after only a few weeks the paint started coming off. Other than this it is sturdy and was easy to fit, shame about the coating though.

As stated a good sturdy fit on ceramic toilet. Ordered two of these but one came without fittings so quickly contacted buyer for replacement which is being sent. The other as stated fitted well and so pleased have now ordered a total of three seats.

‘stay tight’ – yes plastic hinges are better than metal. ‘stay tight’ – yes plastic hinges are better than metal. I was fed up of having to refit the toilet seat every three months. Basically metal hinges are poorly designed as they have to be tightened from within if they work loose – there is a screw with star washer inside that is supposed to allow adjustment of the seat. Star washers don’t hold forever. Also, the holes in the toilet bowl are larger than the screw diameter – another source for movement – these seats come with a collar that fits the hole and then the adjustment is by an elongated hole in the hinge. Nothing inside to work loose. My first choice for when the other toilet seat (with metal hinges) works loose – which it will. Nothing to corrode when the target is missed.

A toilet seat that stays fixed.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • This is made of wood which is not really suitable

Easy to keep clean and i think it is going. Not quite the colour i had in mind so altered the pedestal mat to match. A lovely seat, easy to keep clean and i think it is going to last a long time, not using any harsh bleach products on it.

Worth spending your money on. Worth every penny, i have wasted so much money on toilet seats that promise not to move and have finally found one. Rock solid, my search is finally over 😊.
