Toilet seat nuts

I have a Traveler toilet and one side the nut that hold the seat on is loose. I can not get up there to tighten the nutbecause it the side that is against the wall.

Can anyone please inform me how I can get this nut tight. Maybe what is the size of socket as it is a platic nut but some socket must be able to fit.

Thank you for all info.

I swear they install the seat before they install the toilet! ;-)

I tried to tighten one side of mine and decided to leave it loose after playing around with a variety of sockets and extensions. Getting the size is not a problem. It takes a deep socket. The problem is getting into a blind hole that is hard to reach while your nose is in the pot so you can reach.

You could take the near nut off and fit it for the proper deep socket, then install/tighten both of them. A small mirror can help align the socket with the nut on the backside.

You don't by any chance have a screw head on top of the seat, do you? One of mine at home does and it makes it very easy to tighten.

As Retired and Happy says, most toilet seats are held on with big plastic screws that have a slot on top. The plastic nut on the bottom may even have a projection on one side that keeps it from turning, so you don't even need to reach the nut. The seat usually has a snap cover over the screw head.

been away boondocking and no wifi.

So now I would like to thank the wise one that told this uninformed one the it is as easy as a large screw driver.

Unsnapped the covers and voila there they were, two plastic screw heads.

Thanx for the help, now Mama will not slide off the pot.
