I have a traditional 'heritage' toilet and bought the oak soft closing seat (£130) to match. the soft- closing feature was never perfect - the seat moved all the time. the lid eventually stopped soft-closing. this week the whole thing fell apart! I came across this seat on Amazon and saw the reviews for the last version of this seat- overwhelmingly positive. this one appears to be the updated version. it is the best soft-closing seat that I have come across! it fits like a dream, is sturdy and was easy to install. the soft-closing mechanism is contained within the seat; I assume that this will avoid the hinges slipping and snapping as they do when clasped to the toilet basin.The white still works with my Victorian/modern bathroom - in fact the room looks cleaner with it in. the price is unbelievable (£23)...it is worth every penny...and more. standard delivery took 5 working days with eakers home improvement. I fixed the seat easily on my own within ten minutes (I don't 'do' diy). the design is ingenious, allowing the pin that the soft-closing hinge sits on to move forwards backwards and around the centre fixing by 360°. this means that the seat can be adjusted to fit perfectly to the toilet pan.hopefully the white will remain that colour - it has been uv treated.Finally, it allows you - with the push of a button - to take the seat off; this allows one to clean around the hinges with ease. this was always a problem with the last seat that I had, and I was never happy that it couldn't be cleaned properly. another well-thought-out design feature of this product. if you're looking for a soft-closing seat/lid, or if you've never used soft-closing before, go for this seat. I am very pleased with this purchase.
