Toilet seats


J

John Smith

I wish to replace a couple toilet seats, we want white plastic seats of
approx 420mm x 375mm and the important measurement is 225mm between the pan
fixing bolts - its a Twyford pan of unknown model number.
Any ideas where we may obtain such?
Thanks,
John

Seats I have fitted have been adjustable over quite a range.
Never had to find a special to suit an unusual pan.
225mm does sound wide - just measured mine at about 170mm.

Maybe try a proper plumbers merchant not a shed.

Try a Google search ("toilet seat 225")? I found several sites with
questions asking for 225mm spaced seats, some had no replies, another said
the widest they sold was 220mm.
Then I came to this:
http://www.replacementbathroom.co.uk/twyfords-jupiterrhapsody-wc-toilet-seat-443-p.asp
which seemed a bit expensive and got me thinking that you are after
something rare!

Thanks for the reply Mike. As you say that IS expensive...may be forced to
refit
the original (only 15 years old) nice wooden seat!..whilst we continue to
look around.

So far so bad!...I've failed miserably to locate a seat with fixing bolts
225mm apart (seems that 150mm is the norm). Any ideas?

Get the type that are two mounts with a rod in between
Change the rod for a longer piece of stainless steel and fit two ss
spacers to centralise the seat & lid.

In case it helps in the future, B&Q website links to specific (single)
items can be truncated after the 7digit product ID code to give a
shorter link.

For the part you pointed at, this link will get you there:
