Fixing Toilet Seats

Discussion in 'DIY' started by Spacehopper383, Jun 15, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone have a foolproof way of fixing a toilet seat to the toilet so that it doesn't move after a few months of use. I've tried everything I can think of including using double sets of nuts to stop big plastic nut from moving.
    The toilet seats are not cheap ones as I do like a bit of comfort while having a read/dump, so this is becoming a pain the the arse (excuse the pun).
    Any advice especially from the building/plumbing side of arrse would be greatfully recieved.
  2. You have clearly invested wisely in upmarket toilet seats, so they cannot be at fault.The problem seems to be in your personal crapping technique,where you are imparting an unfortunate torsional stress onto the seat itself. Have you considered fitting straining bars ?

  3. .................It's not the toilet seat that is at fault. The fittings are simple to use & fairly foolproof.

    Provided you are of average weight!

    If you are a morbidly obese tub of lard, the poor bog seat stands no chance at all!

    Hence the wing nuts become loose due to those fat grinners, constantly plonking themselves onto a seat designed for a normal person!

    Get to the gym you fat **** & stop eating all the pies!

  4. I used to do building maintenance for a housing assn & a few private landlords. The amount of bog seats the idle fucks used to ring up about to get replaced was unreal. One lard arse used to have one every couple of months. The problem is when they shift their bulk to one side so they can get their arm behind to wipe their arses. It puts so much strain on the fixings they just give up at some point. Best way to solve it is stand up & wipe or get a seat perm a fixed to the chod bin ala public shitehose style.

    I'd see if a wine cork would fit the hole in the porcelain, one top and one bottom and then drill it to the diameter of the bolt to prevent the seat's lateral movement when under stress.

    That or lose some weight to the same end.

  8. The wife gets quite upset when I do that especially if I don't clean up before she takes a shower, plus I find the paper tends to block the waste.
  9. Far easier than that it the BIOTOILET, of which range the "prestige" model is the best as it offers a "pulsating massage" and a "feminine wash" - though I'm not sure if the w@nk comes before the moaning or vice versa.

    In any event, for a very modest charge your scatological and urinary satisfaction (and pleasure) is assured. Apparently.

    Failing that - take a dump at work and the problem is immediately resolved.

    Oh yeah - forgot to mention: it has a quick release feature too. Useful for when suction prevents lardy-arse from breaking seal or when knackers get caught under lid. At least, I think that's what it means.
  10. Paper?? You haven't quite got the hang of this new fangled "shower" business have you?
  11. Dump Arab-style - squat on the bare rim and let it go ...
