Hidden Toilet Seat Bolts.
The toilet seat in our 'new' house needs to be changed but the toilet bowl is the newer type where the toilet bowl is part of a solid block where the bolts holding the seat on are not visible underneath (hard to explain what I mean here). On older toilets you could access the bolt underneath at the back but on this one the bolt is within the block. Does that mean I will have to unbolt the toilet bowl from the wall to get access to the seat bolts?

Very interesting. But what a horrible design ! One gets sold special plastic joined thread connectors to screw the bolts into, and have to tolerate any old one dropping inside where one can not remove them. All in order to stop folk getting to the nuts normally required to fit the seat. Makes the bowl look more lump-like too. If they want to hide the nuts why not a plastic cover for them alone ? More evidence that the world is going mad.
