More fitting information needed. The seat and fittings are good quality and as described and displayed and the ordering process and delivery were straightforward and quick. The finish is attractive and easily cleaned and the seat is excellent value. However frustrating hours were spent in installation due to inadequate fitting instructions. As i only fit new toilet seats every couple of decades or so the skills required were long gone – and the last one (installed in 1987 – simpler times) had fewer possible options. However it was an opportunity for a joint bonding exercise with my spouse as we grappled with the fiddly bits, forced (without clues) to try them out in different permutations until we cracked it in the end.

Good mahogany colour match for. The first unit arrived with a manufacturing defect and was swiftly replaces without problem. The replacement is well finished and the hinge fittings are good quality and robust.

The seat is okay but one of the fixtures was broken on arrival, although the packaging was fully intact. I didn’t want to go through the process of returning it so i used an old fixture. Here are the specifications for the Croydex Douglas ‘Sit Tight’ Double Fixed:

  • Sit Tight Toilet Seat – The ‘Double-fixed’ toilet seat, designed to prevent seat movement
  • Adjustable hinges fit all standard toilets
  • Made from solid pine with Chrome plated hinges
  • Anti-Bacterial treated surface
  • Toilet seat hinges can be adjusted to suit fixing hole centres from
    110 mm to 200 mm

Okay for the price, however the weak points i have overcome with my own solutions.

Received this seat as part of an order made. The manufacturers box had been previously opened and resealed with sellotape. Thankfully all parts inside were in good condition except, the fitting instructions were missing. Lucky that i had fitted a similar seat before. I did buy it on the understanding that it was new and unviewed. Sorry amazon, you have lost a star.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Sit Tight, that’s right
  • Not Bad, Could Be Better.
  • surprisingly easy to fit

Croydex solid wood toilet seat, mahogany-chrome fitting. The croydex solid wood toilet seat, mahogany goes well with my bathroom furniture which is in mahogany. It is the nearest i could get to my old toilet seat.

Good product but instruction is missing. The toilet seat arrived intact, colour is darker than shown in the picture but the instruction is not included inside the box. It took my husband a few hours to fix the hinges. This product is value for money.

Well packaged with good fitting instructions. No movement and good looking. Bought 3 in total and very pleased with them.

The seat itself is alright but the hinges are rubbish, they lasted 3 days and we aren’t even rough so if somebody bought this that doesn’t have very good hygiene then i’d say it wouldn’t fair very well in that household.

Quality of materials all good except it is very dark. I would say black not mahogany.

Although a bit difficult to fit, this is the best loo seat i have ever purchased. It does not move about and doesn’t have to be re fixed every other week.
