Toilet seat hinges are sometimes included with the purchase of a new toilet seat and are also sold separately. If a toilet seat hinge breaks, it can be removed and a new one installed with a screwdriver or pair of pliers, depending on the type of hinge.
Common types of toilet seat hinge materials are white plastic, stainless steel and polished brass. Toilet seat hinges come in pairs and include all of the mounting materials required to install them, including hinges, screws, washers and bolts.
As of 2015, the general price for toilet seat hinges ranges from around $4 dollars to $25 and more. The price is dependent on the material the hinges are constructed from, with basic white plastic hinges costing only a few dollars while polished brass hinges are the most expensive. While white plastic hinges may seem more attractive due to their low price point, their downside is the fact that they do not last as long as steel or brass hinges and may break unexpectedly.Learn more about Plumbing
