Using screwdriver to tighten bolts on toilet seat.

Step #8: Install Toilet Seat

While some toilets come with a seat, many do not. Make sure the seat you buy is made to fit the shape of the toilet bowl.

How to install a toilet seat:

  1. Position Toilet Seat: Place the toilet seat on the bowl, and insert the seat bolts through the holes in the seat and toilet bowl.
  2. Attach Toilet Seat Bolts: Screw the nuts on the seat bolts and tighten until the seat is snug.

      Try carefully tightening the toilet bolts that hold the toilet to the floor up, but don’t overdo it as it could crack the porcelain bowl. If that doesn’t help, put a shim between the floor and toilet.
