Good value, hopefully the glue and screw fixing. Good value,hopefully the glue and screw fixing, means that it will not move about after a while.

For such a cheap seat (i bought it in a sale) i can say it is very sturdy and also stays upright when needed. My only critisism is that the instructions were faded and difficult to read, also the parts i could read were pretty vague in decsribing the process of fitting.

Good quality seat, awful instructions. Good quality and quite straightforward to fit, but oh my the instructions are among the worst i’ve come across – wordy, fussy, obtuse and confusing.

Overpriced for what it is. . Very lightweight wood, which i cannot see lasting very long. The one i replaced was far more solid, and cost half as much. I would say you a paying for the gimmick of ‘sticking’ the hinge to the toilet to stop it moving. But already i have had to retighten both spindles, as they seem to work loose over time, which consequently means the still seat moves, regardless of the fact that the upper part of the hinge is held with adhesive.

Good product worth paying extra few quid. Fed up with toilet seats working loose so bought two of these and they really do sit tight. Just follow fitting insructions as say takes about 20 mins.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Very clever,clear bright display, not sure how it works, I suspect witch craft
  • Good quality, solid wood
  • Good Quality Seat, Awful Instructions

Once fitted, very pleased with the product. Care required in ensuring each step of fitting is as per the instructions. The wood is lightweight and fits the pan very well.

Very pleased with all aspects.

Can croydex confirm that the glue used in fitting be easily removed if required?. Still uncertain about using the glue to keep it firm, will it be easy to remove if required?. Not quite as blond as expected but will still do for colour.

Very clever,clear bright display, not sure how it works, i suspect witch crafta bit more difficult to fit than the 2 minute video would have you believe though. The protective tubes that go over the threaded bar keep falling off whilst trying to align everything, i found a drop of superglue cured that. Also you need to tighten the adjustment bolts up quite tight, otherwise as you try to align & remove/re-fit they will move & throw everything out. If not for those points i would give it 5 stars, i suspect now it is fitted it will outlast me.

A decent seat but let down by the accessories provided to fit it. A couple of issues with this product – (1) the glue supplied, which is the key ingredient in stopping it from slipping, had gone solid in its tube and would not squeeze out. Also the instructions said there should have been two tubes, one for each side, but there was only one. I used some superglue i had around the house but it did not really work. (2) the key supplied to screw in the final washer and nut was too big to fit in the space under my toilet pan, so i had to screw the nut in by hand, which was hard as it was so small. When i realised the glue was no good i would probably have returned the product for exchange, but it says clearly on the packaging that once you have opened the shrink wrap you can’t exchange or refund. Unfortunately you can’t see the accessories until you remove the shrink wrap.

At last a loo seat that fits my apparently-not-standard loo. Good quality, solid wood, good fittings and very good instructions. Well yes but i like a challenge and quite do-able if you like little diy projects, have a few tools and can follow instructions. Had the seat installed for a few months now, hasn’t budged and looks great.
