  • Adjustable wrench

  • Screwdriver

Mayfair is a line of toilet seats manufactured by Bemis, a leading toilet seat manufacturer. Mayfair toilet seats are available in a wide variety of colors and materials, and are available as padded and unpadded seats. Toilet seats are attached to the toilet using plastic nuts and bolts, rather than metal. The plastic material prevents corrosion; however, the plastic bolts are more likely to break over time. When your old toilet seat breaks, you should install a new one prior to using the toilet again.

Step 1

Use a screwdriver to lift the plastic caps protecting the bolts at the base of the toilet seat.

Step 2

Remove the two plastic nuts securing the plastic toilet seat bolts on the underside of the toilet bowl using an adjustable wrench.

Step 3

Remove the bolts from the toilet seat and then remove the toilet seat.

Step 4

Remove the paper on the sticky washers included with the toilet seat and then stick them to the toilet around the bolt holes on the top of the toilet.

Step 5

Align the new toilet seat bolt holes with the bolt holes on the toilet and then insert the bolts included with the Mayfair toilet seat.

Step 6

Thread the nuts onto the bolts from the bottom of the toilet seat by hand and then tighten from the top. To tighten, hold the nut with an adjustable wrench and use a screwdriver to turn the bolts.

Step 7

Snap closed the tabs on the base of the toilet seat above the bolts.
