Certain things are very tough to get broken in. Especially for men.
I just installed a new "soft" toilet seat in the bath room and....well, you guys all know the problem.
The damn seat won't stay up!

It takes about 10-15 good sit down jobs to get one properly broken in so it will stay up for stand up jobs.

And women think that they have all the problems.

Ever have a soft seat that would delay falling until you started your wizz. Half way through, it would decide it's time to fall.

Another tough item is a wallet. Women can have 30-40 purses, but the average American male has only 3 wallets in a lifetime.

There's usually enough slop in the bolt holes to move the seat far enough forward to keep it from falling... unless the wife has put one of those fuzzy covers on the lid that makes it fall down every time!

Ya know Alex, you wouldn't be totaling out those padded seats if you didn't 'rip' the seams apart, melting the seams after eating three hotdogs with onions and sport peppers! Even an Oak seat couldn't pass a test like that!!! LOL!!

Yup, that's also the skill you need when you're in a house with those queer fuzzy toilet seat covers, or as I refer to them, bacteria collectors.

I never could see the point in those things. I guess one remedy would be to pee outside. Not very nice in the ice belt at 2:30 in the morning though.

Another option would be one of these:

When my grandfather passed away in the mid 80's I liked his wallet so much I am still useing it today. So does that count as my second in over 30 years? or my first and still his third?
The wife quit using the rugs on the lids when she kept finding them on the floor.

For some reason I thought about it and recalled that the holes in the bowl are about 3/8 to 1/2 inch and the seat bolt is only 1/4 inch. Have you tried to loosen the bolts and when you tighten them pull the seat forward as far as it goes? It may change the angle enough for it to stay up?

If the seat falls, and the Velcro sticks to Alex and he jumps up in surprise.
Which section would be best to post the topic, "Alex was picked up by the fuzz".

Update:
Well tried the velcro and that worked.
After two weeks I decided that it was worn enough to remove the velcro.
Guess what?
It wasn't!
The damned padded seat still won't stay up.

Don't use super glue gel. When the seat falls you will be there waiting to be set free by fire rescue.

Ok, here's a million dollar idea for someone out there. A small magnet in the seat and a bit of metal embedded in the lid. The seat will stay up and the lid will come down automatically with the seat.

You do put the seat down don't you?
