The first bog seat (which was chipped) went back to H******e.
The second one wouldn't sit right on the bog - it was resting on only
one of the four supports! I think the hinges were off-centre or
something. That went back too.
The third one is much better, although it only rests on the two front
supports - I assume because I had to turn the hinge through 180
degrees to get the right position. Turd time lucky!
I was that man. Bought one Sunday and fitted it. I thought it had the
solidity and feel of the wood ones without the cheap wood look and dodgy
varnish (the MDF ones are "high gloss" finish). I wouldn't have bought one
at £30 but took a deep breath and paid the £22.50
As regards the OP, the range of adjustment vis-a-vis bringing the seat
forward in modern hinges is large as you can put the vertical threaded pin
in off-centre. The MDF one was the same thickness (or more) than the old
wood one (which wouldn't stay up and had gone manky). I was able to fit it
with off centre pins such that this one did stay up.
