Install top fixing toilet seat and stopping bolts seizing

Postby johnst » Wed Feb 17, 2021 4:26 pm

I have a top fixing toilet seat.
Due to nuts seizing on to threaded posts I had to use a saw to get the old seat off.

I have a new set of fittings.

To prevent the nuts seizing and to make it easier to remove in future, is it advisable to coat the fittings in something?

If so, what can you suggest I use.

Hi johnst
Use silicone grease and coat threads and fixings.
