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
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

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
