This is a top fix toilet seat.
Firstly: Some owners have had trouble fitting the rawlplug fittings into the holes in their toilet, saying the holes are too small. Maybe I was lucky in that mine was a Cooke and Lewis toilet and with a dab of washing up liquid the rawlplugs slid in ok.
Secondly: The fixings allowed reasonable adjustment of the seat.
Thirdly: The soft close mechanism and seat release, works well.
Lastly: The seat does NOT sit properly on all 4 pads and I think long term this could be a problem so keep your receipt for a possible warranty claim.
So why is this?
The front 2 white pads (under the seat) come into contact with the toilet, no problem. However because the hinge mechanism/ fixings raise up the rear of the seat, the 2 rear white pads under the toilet seat, are not in contact with the toilet. Consequently I envisage that when someone sits on the seat, their body weight will be distributed onto the hinges and the front pads under the seat. The rear pads are almost a centimetre up in the air. This could cause the seat to sag and possibly crack over a period of time.
I understand that B & Q won't take a toilet seat back if the cellophane seal is broken, so my best bet is to keep the seat and return it under warranty if it breaks during the 1st year. Hopefully it won't.
Might be easy to fit, might not...

I can see why there is a mixed picture in the reviews. The "plugs" that go into the ceramic for this top fit seat were a very tight fit on my toilet. It did feel like they might break as I was hammering them in (yes I had to hammer them in, they wouldn't just push). They are made of two pieces connected by some thin flexible plastic which is vital to the tightening of the hinge attachment. My tip (if they won't just push in) is to hold them tightly, hammer them a little way in carefully and then push the top piece slightly to one side so you can hammer the lower section without stressing the flexible plastic. I was slightly worried about using a hammer on my ceramic toilet... Once in, easy to adjust and works well though.

Well designed and easy to ‘top fit’ to the toilet pan. Once in place allows seat to be removed for cleaning. Most importantly is designed so the once fitted the seat will not come loose and move about during use. Soft close system works well. I now have three of these seats in use,

We have had some disasters in the past when replacing toilet seats, so we weren't looking forward to replacing another one. What a great surprise, it took only 15 to 20 minutes to fit this new toilet seat and it looks great.
Can’t get the fittings to work
