Bemis uses nylon nut/bolt anchors, but they work. The nuts are two
part. You tighten the lower part with a wrench and when the nuts are
properly torqued, the lower nut breaks free from the upper nut. They
gar-own-tee the nuts will never work loose. So far, I'm convinced.
I know plenty of landlords and people that rant. In my bathroom, we
wanted Kohler faucets, brushed nickel. They are smooth operating and
should last a lifetime. At the plumbing supply they were $253.
We were at Lowe's last week and they had a faucet set for $69. They
felt like crap when you turned the handle. Guess which one a landlord
I thought about that too. What happens the second time you want to
tighten them? Is the upper nut hex sided?
BTW, I just had to stand on the toilet seat in the powder room, in order
to put the louver back on the bathroom fan.
All 270 pounds of me and I didn't hear any cracking noises. Sometimes
I stood in the middle on one leg, which gives a lot of leverage since
the bumpers are near the edges, but so far so good.
P.S. I took off the louver to look at the fan motor. That's just the
sort of fan motor I need to replace the motor in my table fan that
caught fire last summer, but it's one size too big. That size, like a
Broan BP27, is used all over the place but I can't find one size
I always use cheap faucets. As long as they're metal.
Never have trouble with them. Only buy 2-handle lever type.
Except for the laundry tub, which are knob type.
My wife has the say on "style." She's always found one she likes dirt
cheap. $69 is high end.

And I know how to SNIP
Uh, TMI No need to post pix on this one! Look for the Beemis brand. They
manufacture most of the OE seats and are I what I consider the industry
standard. IDK if they manufacture a soft one but it wouldn't hurt to ask.
(g) A medical supply house may be able to help. The soft ones I've seen for
sale seemed to made as "novelty items".
You should have a family sit-down to discuss this.
I had a one handle faucet on my kitchen sink I forget the brand but
it's famous. They advertise a lot, washerless faucet (but they fail to
mention it has other rubber parts that need replacing probably more
often than washers do.)
It was dripping. Replacing parts didnt' help. Called them. They sent
me a whole new set of replacement parts. Didnt' help.
Looked at other faucets. Didn't like the looks of any except the brand
I had, and I didn't want to buy another one of those.
Walking from Home Depot to Walmart. Found a faucet just like mine in
the grassy area next to the road, but grass was tall and couldn't be
seen from a car. Took it home. It looked good, but had a place for a
hose and sprayer, that was missing. Next day, weent back to the grassy
area. Got the hose and sprayer. out of the grass. Same brand as I
what I had that was dripping. Installed in the sink. 5 years ago. No
dripping yet. Works fine.
I tried soft seats a couple times but my experience was that they were
all too soft and just compressed down to a poorly contoured "bottom
ring" and for long sits were actually less comfortable then a well
contoured plastic seat.
The last thing I need is a heated toilet seat. It would be like
If my house is warm enough so will my bottom be warm enough, and if my
bottom is too cold, I need it warmed all the time, not just when I'm on
I don't know. I thought it surprising that I found just what I
needed, and it was both free, and solved the problem, Which should I
buy. It was the only thing in that grass btw. I may have saved
their lawn mower from damage by picking it up.
