Instructions

    Standard Bemis Seat

  1. 1

    Spray penetrating fluid on the current toilet seat retaining bolts and allow it to soak in for a few minutes. Remove the nuts from the retaining bolts with a wrench. Lift the old toilet seat straight up from the bowl and remove it. Skip this step if you are installing a new toilet that does not have a seat already attached.

  2. 2

    Line up the threaded ends of the Bemis toilet seat hinges into the holes at the back of the top of the toilet bowl.

  3. 3

    Lower the seat so that it sits flat on the top edge of the bowl and the hinge threads protrude from the underside of the bowl.

  4. 4

    Slide a flat washer onto one of the threaded hinge bolts and hold it in place with one hand. Slide a lock washer over the treads and hold it in place. Thread a retaining nut onto the threads finger-tight. Repeat for the remaining hinge bolts.

  5. 5

    Tighten the nuts with a wrench alternately on each side until they are tight.

    Bemis Sta-Tite Installation

  1. 1

    Line up the threaded ends of the Bemis toilet seat hinges into the holes at the back of the top of the toilet bowl.

  2. 2

    Thread the plastic Sta-Tite nuts onto the threaded ends of both of the hinge bolts underneath the back of the bowl by hand.

  3. 3

    Tighten each plastic nut with a wrench until the bottom of the nut sheers off.
