    I changed all of mine to that type after we moved in. They look like new after a run through the dishwasher. I gave one to a friend to replace his busted wood POS after his mom complained about it, then installed it because he "couldn't figure it out". :rolleyes:

    Just finished Unstoppable. Not really worth the time, but my sleep schedule was screwed up, and I didn't feel like reading. I'm sure there are some great railroad stories to be told without a bunch of BS thrown in to jazz them up. Air brake fail-safe systems are basically all the same, and I've yet to see Hollywood get it right.

    I saw a documentary about a rail disaster in Paris where a conductor painstakingly defeated the air brake system of his train, contributing to a crash. All a screenwriter has to do is spend a few hours talking to someone in the field, and they'd have a few credible ideas to work with. The San Bernadino train disaster would be an excellent reference. "The air brakes don't work!" is right up there with "I'm so serious, I chambered a round ... again ... and again!"

    Uh, you put toilet seats in the dishwasher? Not sure my wife would be OK with that, but I will sure make the suggestion just to see her reaction. I don't see a problem with it, great idea.

    The dude that couldn't figure out the installation should have his man card revoked.

    Just wash them when she isn't home. My Bosch has a sterilization cycle, the seats have some anti-bacterial properties, and they don't get that dirty, anyway.

    Toilet Seat Friend is an interesting guy. We've done 14ers, canoed the Boundary Waters, hiked Grand Canyon, and other "manly" things, but he's completely inept at mechanical tasks. Teaching him to drive a econobox with a manual transmission was a treat.

    Be sure to spray the surface with a spray adhesive. Then tell the wife it's fixed and to go try it out. I assure you, it will be the last time the wife will ever ask you to fix anything.
    True story: years ago mine kept on bugging me about leaving the seat ring up. I glued the lid to the seat right so it became one piece. I figured with women's rights and all, I wanted to be politically correct. They want to open their own doors, pump their own gas, have a credit card in their own name, equal pay for equal work... they can lift the seat or close them both. In the middle of the night I hear my name called out with plenty of adjectives, adverbs, etc. All I could do is grab my pillow and go to the couch....and laughed until the sun came up. Of course I had to go buy a new toilet seat the next day. I got the one that Kolunatic suggested... Now that I am older and retired, I am the guy that has to clean house, so make it easy on yourself... buy a good one.

    ^^^ And that's how 3M Super 77 caused a divorce. :)

    The seats that came with my Kohler toilets don't even require loosening the plastic hardware. Once mounted, a good tug straight forward unclips them from the plastic heads.

    Gah, you know you are getting old when you get mildly excited about doing the "self-closing toilet seat mod" to your house.

    I have 2 daughters, so I am outnumbered, but I do have my own bathroom in the basement where I can leave the seat up.

    I like the soft close feature. No more dropped seats or lids waking me up, or squawks about the seat being left up. What I don't like is someone leaving a plumber's breakfast in the bowl and closing the lid. It happens a lot more often than I ever left a seat up.

    I was just thinking about this. We can't lose this data point.

    Bob should use a lap counter with you, or scientific notation. Maybe he could create a unit of measurement. 100,000 posts = 1 OZ-T, something like that.

    I used to be told I left the seat up,but my wife leaves the seat down. So I started closing lid,its for that reason,its neutral,Switzerland. She hated that more.
    Now I have a mancave,seat stays up when I want. And leave a plumbers breakfast when I can:)
