I don't normally discuss bathroom issues, but it is very unnerving to slide sideways while taking care of business. This is a very handy invention for modern society. After going through several toilet seats, and getting tired of slipping and sliding off my perch, I knew that there had to be a better way. Why toilet seat manufacturers do not include seat stabilizers, I will never know; but I am sure that in some unrecognizable way, this invention has saved my life.

The installation of these Safe-T-Bumpers was a little finicky, however it was not difficult. It is best to start with a clean or new toilet seat, and connect the bumpers to the toilet seat with the included rubber band. Next, set the seat down on the toilet bowl and adjust the bumpers so they sit within the bowl. Finally you can lift the seat, and permanently attach the Safe-T-Bumpers with the included screws, as long as you don't drop a screw in the water! (You can still attach with that screw, but you may get a little wet)

After using this product, I have not had to purchase another toilet seat, or tighten the bolts connecting the seat. A recommended purchase for every household.

These are the best invention for the bathroom. I hated having the seat slide when I sat down and if you're elderly it could become a safety issue. I asked a plumber who was doing work at my house if there was anything to remedy that and he said no. Well, turns out he is wrong. Shortly after that I saw these online and figured they were worth a try. WOW! Seat no longer shifts when I sit on it! The are super easy to install. I'm over 60 and a female and had no trouble installing at all. Of course, you need to predrill the holes. I've had these for months now and they are fantastic. Can hardly say enough good about them. If you are considering these by all means don't hesitate any longer. You will be so glad you did.

We were replacing toilet seats every year or so, because they would break near the hinges from people moving around on the seat. I don't remember how I stumbled on these a few years ago, but they've been a godsend. What a simple, great invention! No more loose, distracting seating. No more broken hinges. As such, I think it's safe and accurate to say these not only benefit your pocketbook, but also your health. When we are sitting on the toilet, we need to be able to concentrate on the task at hand and not be distracted by loose toilet seats.
For what they are, these are pretty expensive at five dollars a set. But for the idea itself, and how easy it is to install, and how well it does the job, the dollar trade-off is worth it. Also, taking into consideration the money saved by not having to replace broken toilet seats anymore, one comes to the realization that there are some things in life you just can't put a dollar value on.

If you own a toilet seat that slips sideways this is the solution. They are easy to install, and work perfectly.
If you have people who weigh a lot using the toilet this is essential to keep the seat in place. It can be used for any toilet seat or shaped toilet bowl. It is simple, easy to install yourself, and works as it should without disappointing.

This product was exactly what I needed. My toilet seat constantly slid to one side and I would end up touching cold porcelain, or holding my legs really tense so that the seat wouldn't slip. So very annoying. I tried tightening the bolts a few times but they would just loosen again within weeks. Then I found this - perfection! I installed just one clip, which worked since my seat only slid to one side. (if yours slides to either side, you will need to install both.) Problem solved! I did need to use my drill to drill a small hole in the wooden seat before I could put in the screws. but overall it took less than 10 minutes. Well worth it. I highly recommend it.

After complications from a knee replacement, it put a lot of stress on toilet seats. I had to replace the seat every few months no matter how much I spent on the seat. A plumber friend suggested Safe-T-Bumpers and said it would likely solve the problem.
I can't believe how they have helped, how inexpensive they were and how easy they were to install. Highly recommended!

I think the seller did as good as they could. I have a balance and age. But issue and this requires pre drilling and a shorter screw. It looks like it would work fine but I returned it so I'll never know so, I'll never know. Look like a small plastic L-bracket but metal will chip porcelain.

I had a very frustrating situation with my toilet seat slipping and sliding. In addition to these, I ordered a Toilet Seat Tightening Kit, which contains bushings that basically fill the hole in the toilet where the seat screws in. That helped but it didn't solve my issue entirely. These bumpers have basically eliminated the sideways sliding. They were a little tricky to install because you have to make sure you line them up with the toilet rim for a snug fit. I used a drill to start the hole and then used a screwdriver to attach the bumpers. Take your time when lining these up and the seat won't slide anymore.

I was really skeptical about these bumpers. Toilet seats are usually pretty flimsy and I didn't expect them to stay on. I didn't use the rubber bands to mount them...not really necessary. I am happy to report that after a few months, they are still attached and my seat isn't sliding around.

What a great product and is working great with no problems. I was faced with either buying a toilet seat for $69.00 or this marilous little product for a very low price and it took me maybe 10 minutes to read instructions and install myself. This product, in my opinioun should be rated a "10" all the way.
