    Default Toto slow close not so slow anymore

    Hello
    I have Toto toilets with slow close seats. One is closing faster than it was originally. Not crashing - I do that when I forget on a toilet without the slow close feature - but the seat drops much faster than before. Is there any adjustment available ? Thanks

    Seats cannot be adjusted and the hinge assembly can not be replaced you would need to buy a new seat.
    If it is less than a year old it is under warranty and can be replaced no charge.

    When the seat a new, they seem to drop very slowly.
    I notice that as the break in, they drop a bit quicker.

    I haven't noticed any getting so quick that they slam down.

    Thanks for the replies even if they mean a new seat is required - at least I know. My seat free-falls pretty much but catches enough in the last couple of inches to avoid crashes. BTW, what DO you call it when a Toto owner lets a wood seat crash into and break a normal base?? (I have no answer here, but this will happen to me at some point). Richard

    If the rubber bumpers on the seat are intact, I think it would be very hard to crack a toilet bowl.

    I would call that a good imagination.
    Church and Bemis Wood seats are dropping every day in the US without bowls breaking.
