Hi I’m Blair Gilbert alias Mr. hardware Gilbert’s Pro hardware in st. Today, I’m going to share, how to fix lose toilet seat. Fixing lose toilet seat is not a problem, but if you face this problem frequently, then you should think about getting a new toilet for your bathroom. Checkout an article on Shoptoilet about buying a best toilet. Clair Shores and Mr. Harbor calm here to talk by the age-old problem of a wiggling toilet the seat now I’ve been doing some research and I’ve got my life I’ve heard all kinds of suggestions and how to take care of the wiggle on a toilet seat and I can’t believe some of the crazy stuff.
I got to show you here’s the trick what’s happening here is you have a smaller bolt going to a larger China hole and a hole in the China’s allowing the bulk wiggle around and yourself adhesive tape people put here which lasts a little while there are lock washers and double nuts and stuff they do at the bottom sometimes works or lasts a little while here’s the trick here at Gilbert’s hardware.
We sell a tapered rubber washer you shove it in the hole and what we’re looking for is that’s the one I cut here’s one uncut if it’s too proud in other words that this washer sticks up too high out of the China I take my razor knife I carefully extract some of the rubber off so it sticks up just a little bit above the China I take my toilet seat bolt I shove it to the washer I tighten this baby down.
Now when I get near the end as I’m tightening this down cover will compress around my bolt and I got that secure like you never seen before this toilet seat will never wiggle no adhesive door held no glue to go bad no lack washers just a simple less than a dollar washer it’s our tapered toilet seat stabilizing washer here at Gilbert’s pro hard way .
