- OR a 2-minute video of you doing this
My "slow close" lid had failed and became a fast close lid. Which kinda sucks. No real way to repair it that I know of so I got a new one. It's easy to change them out if you have good finger strength to undo the plastic nuts on the underside.

We had an adaptive seat in one of the bathrooms, but handles were becoming loose. It was actually not needed any more, so the loose handles were a perfect excuse to replace it, clean it, tighten the handles, and leave it in the garage for future use. Since we have a wiggly someone who is potty training in the house, I used tight locks instead of the regular ones.
The seat hadn't broken yet, but was getting progressively looser. It only needed tightened back up a few turns to effect repairs. The difference is a bit subtle visually, but you can feel the difference clearly while sitting.
