What a load of carp these Water Carps are: :angryfire:

Inherited this in our new house. No matter what you do to tighten up the seat (Hex key used) within a day, the seat is wobbling around like a Prada-Willi sufferer at and all-you-can-eat buffet.

Time for a new WC with traditional wing nut fixings!

Has anyone ever had the misfortune of owning a WC like this with the inevitable loose seat? Did you find a permanent fix, or just ditch it?

Rant over!

I have a toilet seat with the same type of fixings and it's been spot on since I installed it.

It could be that the centres aren't correct for that toilet causing undue side load on the fittings

Ditto. (Although I'll admit I had my doubts when I fitted!)
I'd pull it off and see what the fitting are looking like.

Decent advice there - but I've took the plunge: https://www.bigbathroomshop.co.uk/premi ... seat-75376

Already fitted one in the utility recently and like the look of the traditional WC and the Mrs is happy.

Cheers - Martin.

I did, still have and couldn’t be happier with it. Installed it around 4 years ago and never, ever had a problem with the seat moving about even though I dismantled it every few months for a thorough cleaning. However, around a year ago I accidentally damaged the seat and had to replace it. The new seat which cost £70+ has no hex screws but instead has a simple press button release. This new seat has never moved out of position either.
