Cachet Q3 Elongated Closed-Front Toilet Seat with Quiet-Close Technology, Quick-Attach Hinges and Grip-Tight Bumpers
Poorest Quality I have ever encountered
Kohler K-4636 Cachet Q3 Elongated Closed-Front Toilet Seat with Quiet-Close Technology, Quick-Attach Hinges and Grip-Tight Bumper
I expected better from a Kohler product. I had to purchase this toilet seat twice as the first one broke as it came out of the package. That makes it a big over-priced product. I am expecting the 2nd toilet seat to "break" in a not-too-long time frame. The rest of the toilet looks incredible ... then, there is this cheap thing. Never again. 1-star rating is actually too high for this thing. Very, very, very, very poor.
Take this off the market, and come up with a porcelain product?

It doesn't go BANG in the middle of the night anymore. Pretty amazing! Having read most of the reviews, I was a little on the fence. Nearly everyone loves it, but there are some that returned it because it quit working. After about a week, mine also quit working. After a close look, I noticed the little white cylindrical pieces underneath had started to back out. Pushing them back in would fix it, but they wouldn't stay. I bought a $1 part and fixed it. I put a spring loaded toilet paper holder in between the white pieces. It has not failed to close quietly since. In short, WE LOVE IT!!

A suprisingly good toilet seat!
We bought two Toto elongated toilets but after trying the Toto seats in a showroom I decided they were extremely uncomfortable so we only bought the toilets without the seats. I went online and looked for soft close, elongated seats and this one seems to be the only other existing brand besides Toto, who invented the soft close seats. I bought one very cautiously. At first it seemed a little uncomfortable, the shape of the rim is slightly sloped down towards the toilet bowl which gives at first an odd sensation as supposed to seating on a regular flat profile toilet seat. After a few uses the whole family got used to it and we all like it. The seat is extremely comfortable and somehow ergonomic. I strongly recommend this seat especially since at first I was doubting this design very much. One design mistake I made: I bought one gray one for a white toilet in an attempt to be different and match my white and gray powder room marble colors. It was a major mistake! Toilet seats have to be the same color as the toilets otherwise they look very bad. So now I have an extra gray seat, maybe I'll buy a gray toilet for the third bathroom one day!

Now I realize that many don't plan to site on the can as if they are going to watch TV or something, but this seat has a goofy taper to it that make it uncomfortable to sit on. Seating on it for even a minute seemed to bring pain. I ask my wife what she thought after I installed it without saying what I thought and she said the exact same thing. I ended up getting a Kohler K-4774 Brevia Q2 Elongated instead.

Accurate, Reliable and Timely
This was just the last item ordered from Faucets Direct in re doing 3 bathrooms, from toilet seats to slide bars in the showers. Everything came as ordered, quickly and in good condition. Kohler products come with clear instructions that make it easy for anyone with basic tools to do the installations. I know that I will be ordering from this company again.

Broken Toliet Seat
We ordered two of these seats and both were broken when the plumber went to install them. We ordered two with one being a extra. We were very surprised to find both broken in the original packaging. Faucet Direct packing looked fine. Our only thought is that they were broke in the manufacturing process. Faucet Direct did not question our return and immediately refunded our money. They are great.

Soft close feature did not last long
When we did a total remod of our master bath, we had one of these soft close seats installed on the new Kohler Cimmaron toilet. It is comfortable and looks nice as expected. However, after ~ 5 months, the soft close mechanism failed. Now it slams down as any other seat would. Bought another to replace it, and the new seat is still working fine. However, the method Kohler uses to attach the seat to the toilet has changed and the new method keeps loosening and needs to be tightened about every month. I am having second thoughts of using Kohler products as normally I never have trouble with their items. I don't mind paying top dollar for superior products, but think this is not worth the money unless they improve the soft close and mount reliability.

Kohler WC seat and cover.
We needed new WC seats and covers because the old ones
were beginning to yellow and would not clean up with any
cleaners I tried. So, time to buy new ones. As an extra
they include a damped closure means no more banging when
they are closed. The overall shopping experience with
FaucetDirect.com was excellent. Thank you !!!

perfect match to Kohler toilet
This is a very nice seat and it perfectly matches the Kohler porcelain colors like biscuit which others don't. It is also nice because the lid doesn't slam down it is hinged in a way that lets it come down gently. Great item!

Kohler toilet seat
I have bee looking for a match of my toilet seat & of course it can't be found in the stores.
I browsed your website looking for a new toilet & I found it.
Kohler has kept their colors true over the years. The Mexican Sand is still the same as it was 20 years ago.
Although not as sturdy as the original seat it fit perfectly & was easy to install.
