Adjusting Toilet Seat

Posted by LakeandHills (My Page) on

We are shopping for a toilet. To tighten or change a toilet seat on one brand, you have to detach the entire toilet and move it away from the wall. Even the smallest hand/arm cannot fit behind the enclosed trapway type of toilet to reach the seat bolts. The space between the toilet tank and the wall is too small, and you must move your hand and arm around and back toward the front of the toilet. Has anyone else seen this toilet? Is there an easier way to reach and adjust the seat fasteners? Example: American Standard Cadet

RE: Adjusting Toilet Seat

I'm not sure how often this task is necessary. If a particular model or brand seems to you to have a design problem, there are plenty of alternatives to choose from.

Or, you could call the company's customer support number and present your question to them.
