Toto toilet seat broken hold to toilet


The one piece slow dropping seat has an integral attachment, this has a lip molded to it that holds it in place by the bolt. Well the lip broke off (granddaughter child seat put stress on it, I guess), so now only one bolt is holding. This looks non repairable to me. Any thoughts.

Total has exact replacement seats, a bit pricey though. If epoxy fails in the long term, try plastic welding which should be as strong as the original plastic.

------------------------------------- 1. take the plastic flange that broke off and reattach using superglue (\"single use\" tubes are more economical). 2. while it sets, get the plastic cap that covers the screw hole. put a hole though it by using a drill or heating a paperclip with a lighter. 2. lay the seat back on the toilet and put the plastic screw back in the hole over the flange but don't bolt it on the toilet yet, because you'll break the flange again. 3. mix up some epoxy (i used Loc-tite 5 minute setting), fill up the area above the screw. 4. put the cap back on--any air or extra epoxy with come out of the hole in the cap. 5. clean off any excess epoxy before it dries with fingernail polish remover. 6. The screw is now permanently attached to the seat. Bolt it on the toilet.

Forget all the glue and trying to re-attach weak plastic to the weak plasti c seat bracket. Take two, flat washers (metal) that will cover the seat br acket area, keeping the detached plastic rings, if still intact, and re-att ach the bolts through the toilet and voila. You now have a much sturdier a ttachment in place and you don't have to worry about whether glued plastic can hold up.

Me thinks me posted too soon ...
The Cover of the seat does NOT go back far enough, unless the washers are r eally thin, and perhaps made of a thinner plastic as well. The metal flat washers DO hold the seat down nicely, but with that cover not going back fa r enough, that poses a new problem. I'm still working on a better solution .
