    Hello,

    I know most toilet seats have either button locks to release them from the hinges or just screws. But for the life of me I can't figure out how to release the toilet seat pictured.



    The seat is loose and the slow close has stopped working. I've tried googling but have come up empty. I have no idea what the brand is.

    Any ideas?

    Edit: I've tried to see if I can pop off the chrome covers but I haven't been able to get between the seal and the chrome bit. I was afraid of breaking something though so I didn't push that hard

    The chrome covers should slide inwards. Might need soaking in silicone spray first

    Thanks for the response. I did give this a go but they don't feel like they're budging at all.

    Does this part unscrew or pull out ?

    That is part of the toilet lid. It doesn't unscrew, there isn't enough 'give' on the other side in order to pull it out.

    Those chrome caps have to come off. Be brutal.

    Finally figured it out! The chrome covers don't come off. There was a small hole in the back that takes a small allen key, after unscrewing it the whole mechanism comes off with the seat.

    Thanks all.
