As the title suggests, how do I stop a toilet seat from gradually moving over time? No matter how tight I do up the fittings, the seat will twist clockwise over time. This happens at my daughters house too, on a seat that I have fitted. So what am I doing wrong? Or is it a natural phenomenon? The seat at my house has the type of fitting with a rubber bung, with a bolt through it and a nut which gets pulled into the bung, similar to a rawl bolt. I'm sure there must be a proper name for them. Needless to say I have straightened and re-tightened them several times. But they still move after a period of time. I am reluctant to apply maximum pressure for fear of breaking the pan. Should I be putting some kind of adhesive or silicone or something in the hole before fitting. It's doing my head in. I keep blaming the wife and daughter for "shuffling" It would be great if I could find a solution to this problem.
