The manufacturer gives all the equipment for toilet seats with the set of toilets. So, you can find a rubber base, take it and install it on the hinges of the seat post. After that, slip the bolts into the washer and hinge holes. The hinge has a built-in washer with adjustable settings. Fix the washer by rotating it to your preference with the toilet bowl. Now it’s time to thread the bolts with nuts and tighten them up. Use the screwdriver to attach the nuts, but don’t over-tighten them. Carefully close the covers of the hinge, and after that, if the seat is not operating perfectly, check whether the cover is installed correctly.

Now take the mounting bracket, place it on the plate and tighten it with the mounting bolts. Now slide the bidet seat into the base plate and do this until you hear the click of the placement of the plate. Then attach the water supply hose to the seat and connect it to the clip. Plug the seat with 120V AC power, and if you want, install the remote handling case after the toilet’s water tank close to the wall. This place is closest to the toilet, and you can easily handle this after using the toilet each time.
