This works like a champ to install toilet seats and tighten the bolts.

I am a big guy. I hate sitting down on a toilet seat that wiggles from side to side. When the work is done and the paperwork starts I want STABILITY. This kit delivers. It's a pretty simple idea - cone shaped washers fill the space between the hole in the ceramic that the seat bolt passes through, and the bolt itself. No more shimmy, no more shake.

I am glad I could buy this rather than buy a new toilet seat just because it loosens up after a while. This is easy to use and has several in the pack so its good for several toilets.

This product is necessary for everyone. A loose seat is a bother, and trying to tighten the nuts by hand or pliers is too hard, and most of the time unsucessful. The only problem is that once it it used, the problem is fixed, and the tool is not needed again. Maybe i'll pack it when traveling so that I'll be able to fix seat in hotels.

My toilet seat kept moving and it was annoying, but I also felt a bit embarrassed, thinking that visitors would think about the moveable toilet seat. I got this and the toilet seat no longer moves and the good thing is that there are several extra tightening "washers" just in case I need them.

This works! The "kit" includes a tightener and 6 rubber bushings. For us, the bushings were the important parts. They fit the holes in the porcelin bowl and have held firm since tightening. The tightener only works on the plastic nuts with the extenders for the thumb. It won't work on a regular nut, so you might need to get the plastic nuts in another kit if you don't have some.

You can really tighten the seat down with these. Since the bushings are rubber and and the nuts plastic, I wasn't worried about cracking the porcelin.

Great Idea! Works as advertised. No longer do I have to crawl under the bowl to tighten the seat!! The small gakets actually improve the seat stability!

I bought this kit because I was having to retighten the bolts on my toilet seat every month as they would become completely loose over time. Our toddler is going to start potty training soon and I thought a kid jiggling back and forth on the seat is going to make it even worse so it was time to take action. The kit wasn't too tough to install. It's a little hard to get the tool onto the bolt so that it turns, and the inside of the tool isn't deep enough to accommodate the length of the post so you can get a really tight fit. Also the rotational strength of the plastic is pretty flimsy so even though you would get more power by holding it at the end, the tool would break so you have to hold it closer to the base and then, again, you can't get a really tight fit on the bolt. After installation my toilet seat moves much less than before but still moves some. We'll see if it lasts or if I'll be back to tightening it in a month. In addition to this kit I also installed bumpers under the seat near the front (also purchased on Amazon: Compac Safe-T-Bumpers Toilet Seat Stabilizers) that stop the seat from moving back and forth from the front so that should also help. Again, not enough time has passed for me to say for sure.

This product is fantastic! I have been plagued with slipping toilet seats! You know the kind- when you sit down the seat slides left and you feel like you are going to fall of! This very easy to use and absolutely NO slippage!
