Discuss Cannot find toilet seats with 270mm gap between hinges? in the Plumbing Forum area at

    Hi all, I hope you can help please?

    I am having real difficulty finding soft close D-shape toilet seats which accommodate a gap of 270mm between the hinge screws. I have checked on plumbing sites, Amazon, eBay with no joy - even the adjustable ones just don't seem to allow a gap that wide.

    Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your help!

    It is indeed a Duravit. They’re ridiculously expensive. Eek!

    Half the time it's cheaper to change the whole toilet to a different style if you can
