What kind do you have. Mine has the instructions on the inside of the cover. But they’re also all over the internet.

bought a new slow-close toilet seat for one of my bathrooms - the one that i always forget isn't slow-close and then end up accidentally slamming it loud af

went to undo the existing attachment and of course its all corroded / rusted tight. worse, there is a plastic nut on it which got immediately stripped. gonna just have to use the hacksaw and cut that fucker off. god knows when i'll have time for that. had to do that to a different toilet last year too. made a giant fucking mess


i finally got around to installing this

time flies. the new toilet seat sat in a box in my bathroom for 6 weeks.... crazy

as expected, i needed to hacksaw to get the old one off. but it was both bolts. awkward angle... 45 minutes of sawing

never again.... next time i will just replace the whole toilet

new slow-close is..... nice n slow tho

consumer reports online subscription highly recommended

shit will constantly break and/or depreciate to replacement and you just have to eat it and pay for it

but what reaaalllly sucks is if you pay to replace something and then it breaks

CR ratings are great bc if you need to buy a new dishawasher or something you can see there are everyman units that rate just as high or higher than designer brands at 1/2 the cost. just need their reaearchers to tell you which ones. all about finding out what is reliable

It was a shitty dishwasher. The first of appliances that came with the house to go. The first appliance that will go in our (eventually) renovated kitchen.
