|Q: What brands does this program match?|
|A: American Standard (Standard), Artesian, Briggs, Crane, Eljer, Gerber, Kilgore, Kohler, Mansfield, Norris, Norris Thermador (NT), Norris Industries (NI), Peerless, Universal Rundle (UR), Western Pottery. For brands not listed, one of the 100 colors will be very, very close.|
|Q: How far back do these colors go?|
|A: The 1950s. Some colors go back to the 1940s. Some color names from the 1940s and 1930s are not shown in the program but will be close enough to a color that is in the program. However, if you are picky about an exact match, do not order.|
|Q: Is everything included?|
|A: Yes. The seat includes the rim that you sit on, the cover (aka lid), the bumpers, hinges, bolts and nuts.|
|Q: What are the seats made of?|
|A: Injection molded plastic which is superior to painted composition wood (sawdust, resin and paint.)|
|Q: What are the exact specifications of the seats?|
|A: The seats are made of heavy weight injection molded plastic. The style is closed front with cover. The four bumpers are color-matched and molded-in. The hinges are color-matched, made with stainless steel pintles and feature Easy-Close™, aka soft-close operation. The mounting bolts are non-corrosive. The "locked-in" design prevents wobble. The Easy-Clean™ feature allows seat removal without tools for thorough cleaning access. Request specification sheet with photos via email|
|Q: Aren't wood seats better than plastic?|
|A: Not necessarily. "Wood" seats, aka enameled wood, aka composition wood are not made of beefy lumber. They are made of sawdust and resin which are compression molded. ...Much like particle-board. The compressed sawdust is then painted. They look thicker and stronger and feel heavier because they must be two-to-three times thicker than plastic to achieve the same strength. The paint color is very thin compared to plastic seats where the color is solid through. (Drill a hole through each to see.) The moisture from bowl water and the acid vapors from urine and the chemicals from cleaning agents will eventually cause the paint on wooden seats to fail. Plastic seats are not susceptible to this failure. The paint on wooden seats can chip. Plastic seats won't chip. The bumpers on wood seats are screwed, nailed, or tacked onto the seat - they can fall off over time. The bumpers on our plastic seats are molded-in - they are integral and cannot come off. In the case of toilet seats, plastic is better than "wood" in our opinion. (Side bar: Dark colors of plastic seats such as Raspberry, Black or Expresso are susceptible to fading over time when exposed to constant sunlight from skylights or windows.) Did you know that enameled wooden toilet seats and croquet balls are made the same way, in the same plant? True.|
|Q: Do any of the numbers inside the toilet indicate the color?|
A: Sometimes there will be alpha abbreviations such as "ALM" for Almond", BIS" for Biscuit, or "SHL" for Shell. These markings were probably to assist workers in the factory where the light is dim.
|Q: Can I get an enameled wood seat in the color I want?|
|A: You might find some common colors such as bone or "pink" or "green" at the home center, but most of the 100 colors in our program are only made in the plastic model. Check our Clearance Center.|
|Q: How much is the shipping charge?|
|A: The prices shown include carton, packing, postage, shipping, and insurance. (Our prices include everything!)|
|Q: My toilet dsecription says "Plain Bowl. What is that?|
|A: Plain Bowl is another term for Round bowl. This term is mostly used by Kohler Company. Their model numbers incorporate this as a suffix, such as "K-3500-PB." Plain/Round bowls are sometimes called Regular bowl.|
|Q: If I know my bowl size and color name, can I skip the charts step?|
|A: Yes. Enter an order above using the line-item for "Skip Charts." Use the Message to Merchant field to say, "Skip Charts - Ship This Size and That Color." We will then enter a warehouse order straight-away for your seat to be shipped to you. Enter your phone number when prompted as it is required by the fulfillment warehouse.|
|Q: Who makes the seats?|
|A: Bemis Manufacturing in Sheboygan Falls Wisconsin. Made in America! (Support yourself)|
|Q: Can you ship to Canada?|
|Q: Do you have Kohler's Taupe color? I don't see it in the list.|
|Q: Do you have white seats?|
|A: Yes. Though it does not appear on the color charts. Use color #000 to order white. Or see White listed above. There is another white called Euro White which is a shade darker. Order color number #160.|
|Q: Do you have red seats?|
|A: Yes. Red is color #153. The color is the same as a Target store shopping cart.|
|Q: What if the color charts do not have a color that matches my toilet?|
|A: Return the kit for a refund less a $14.00 handling fee. See Return Policy below.|
|Q: What if my seat arrives and it isn't the right color match?|
|A: Contact the fulfillment warehouse at 888-700-5510 Mon. - Fri., 8:00 - 4:00 CST. They will arrange an exchange for you.|
|Q: What is the return policy?|
A: There is a $14.00 handling fee for returns if the warehouse order form has not been used. Contact us for return instructions and office address.
A: There is a 25% handling fee for returns of a shipped seat not related to a manufacturing defect. Installed or used seats cannot be returned. Original carton required. Contact us for return instructions and warehouse address.

|Toilet seat vocabulary|
|Toilet seat sizes are determined by the bowl size: Round or Elongated. Other terms are sometimes used but mean the same thing. Round is also called "Regular" or "Plain." Some people call Elongated "Oblong." In the context of our program the terms are Round and Elongated. Toilet Glossary|
|Some minutiae about color matching:|
|1.) Toilets are made of porcelain. Your existing seat may be plastic or enamel painted wood. The toilet seats in this program are made of plastic. The color charts are made of paint. Although they all use the same color pigment, the different materials of manufacture can reflect light differently and color tones may appear different between the various materials under different light sources and at varying angles. 2.) We recommend that you choose a color listed for the brand of your toilet. In addition to color names, the brand names for the colors are listed on the color charts. 3.) If there is any color difference between the paint colors on the charts and the toilets or the seats, it is thought that the charts may run a touch darker. 4.) You might have some degree of color blindness. Article - WikipediA, Article - Color blindness More Prevalent Among Males. This is also to say that some women may have comparatively stronger color tone perception than other people and they may perceive color tone variations that others don't.|
|A note about inset/recessed-front tank lids*:|
These seats will fit the mounting bolt holes and bowl size. However, when putting the cover (top portion) and rim (where you sit) in the up position, the cover will not fit into the recess as did the original seat models. In some cases the seat may not stay up by itself. Possible resolution is to slide the tank lid back all the way and loosen the seat nuts and move the seat forward all the way.
* Such as some American Standard models from the 40's & 50's.
|A note about low-tank style toilets*:|
These seats are not compatible with low-tank toilets* in that the cover lid of the seat hinges back 95 degrees . This means it will not hinge back far enough to rest on the tank of the low-tank style toilet. This may or may not be an issue for you.
* The tank is bolted to the wall and there is an elbow pipe between the tank and the bowl. Toilet Glossary
Pricing: The price includes the color charts, the warehouse order form, the prepaid order envelope, the seat itself, and all shipping charges for delivery of the charts and the seat to the continental USA, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada.
