Photo above-left: Aside from differences in shape (round, elongated), and features (slow closing), and materials (wood, plasatic), an older toilet seat using a 10-inch (255mm) bolt-spread can be difficult to replace.

Most modern toilet seats use a standard 5 1/2" spacing (North America) or standard 155mm (U.K.) between the seat mounting bolts.

This isn't a new problem: Campbell (cited at REFERENCES) patented a toilet seat with adjustable bolt spacing in the U.S. in 1935.

Before buying a toilet seat, measure the space, center-to-center of the toilet seat bolt openings in the toilet base to check that your toilet uses a standard spacing.
