Roper Rhodes Define D-Shaped Soft Close Seat : I look forward to sitting on it everytime

Local diy outlets don’t seem to stock sensibly priced d shaped loo seats. Having read several 5 star reviews on here i decided to go ahead and order one to replace a 13 year old mdf seat that was frankly past it’s use by date. Package arrived ahead of schedule. Top only fitting is a brilliant idea and the adjustment works well. The seat follows the contour of the pan well and looks good. Product appears to be as well made as the laufen on our other loo but at half the price.

Items as described (and useful to have the measurements) and arrived very quickly.

Roper rhodes define d-shaped soft close seat. This is a very good quality seat at a reasonable price, easy to clean and just right for my toilet. Here are the specifications for the Roper Rhodes Define D-Shaped Soft Close Seat:

  • Roper Rhodes Define D-Shaped Soft Close Seat – 8704wsc

Was a little worried when i ordered this to replace a laufen standard pro toilet seat, however this was a perfect fit.

Bought this to replace a vitra s50 scs toilet seat. It is an excellent product, and better than the original. It was a tad too wide but it is not noticeable. It was delivered the next day, and well packaged. It was easy to fit; and easy to click on and off. Very happy with the purchase.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good value-for-money soft close toilet seat
  • The seat and hinge mechanism are fine. They fit the Laufen Pro shape and colour
  • Roper Rhodes Define D-Shaped Soft Close Seat Roper Rhodes

Was hoping seat quality would justify high price and i am impressed. The top fixing method so much easier than scrambling round under the pan with traditional fixings.

This was a replacements eat for a different toilet which i had replaced the seat on 3 previous occasions. I read other reviews on this and was glad to see that this must have been a design fault, as several others had chosen this seat and solved their issue. The seat is a good white, quality construction and easy enough to fit. I would recommend without hesitation. The silent lid closure is a nice touch.

The seat and hinge mechanism are fine. They fit the laufen pro shape and colour. The seat and hinge mechanism are fine. They fit the laufen pro shape and colour quite well. My issue is with the lazy fixings. Top only fixings are fine for lazy installers, but there must be a plastic or rubber washer underneath, otherwise water leaks out. It is a cheap and lazy solution to entice people with poor diy skills. The original laufen fits from top and bottom and no water leaks out. With this installation, a few drops come out, over time leading to stains and dry water marks. Plus, if the hole size is slightly off you may have to hammer the fixing in, which risks cracking the porcelain.

Roper rhodes define d-shaped soft close seat roper rhodes. Ordered by next day delivery as a replacement for a wooden bathstore seat that delaminated. I fitted this in less than 10 minutes following the comprehensive picture and word instructions, needing only a screw driver. Beautiful seat that feels luxurious, tough, and very stable. Excellent product, thank you.

Good value-for-money soft close toilet seat. Good value-for-money soft close toilet seat (£40). Easy to fit for several reasons:a) comes with top fixing hinge anchors (will not suit toiletsthat have small diameter fixing holes – unlikely to be an issue for this shape seat as it’s for modern toilets which do have the slightly larger diameter holes);b) large variation in hinge anchor positions so that the seat can be placed exactly where wanted;c) hinge anchors can be hand tightened to place hinge posts in approx position, perfect alignment achieved by fitting seat temporarily onto hinge posts and pushing seat into exact position. Seat very easily removed (no tools needed) to allow the hinge anchor screws to be fully tightened. C) high grip hinge anchors so that, once tightened, they stay put. Whole job done in about 10 minutes including cleaning the toiletpositives:easy to fit (as detailed above)comfortablegood soft close actionaesthetically pleasingnegatives:this is nit picking really but the seat hinges have more play than ideal. This has not affected the seats use & comfort.

Vitra s50 perfect replacement. Replaced a vitra s50 and it’s a good fit, and better quality than the vitra.

Unlike my previous d-shaped loo seat from b&q, this attaches securely, does not come loose (which caused my previous loo seat to crack within a few months), and the soft close is lovely. I’ve had this for a couple of years now and it’s still as good as new.

After reading all the positive reviews here, i went ahead and ordered it. . Low and behold it arrived next morning. Great servicetook the old one off and fitted this within 15 mins.A tip is to make sure the holes and top of the toilet aren’t greasy and to clean and dry thoroughly so that the rubber seating doesn’t slide about. Tighten up after aligning the seat. Looks very good and i hope it lasts a decent time. All the cheap ones i’ve bought have only lasted a year or so, so i thought by spending more this’ll last.

Good, value-for-money soft-close seat. This is our second replacement seat. Both replaced very expensive laufen seats, but do the job equally well. The soft close works well and the seat fits our loo shape perfectly. No matter how scrupulously you clean white loo seats, they still discolour, but for this price, i’m happy to renew rather than throw money at endless stain removing products.

I’d never done anything like this before. It’s sturdy and the soft close seat works. Feels a little bit plastic but then almost all loo seats do now.
