Cachet Q3 Round Closed-Front Toilet Seat with Quiet-Close Technology, Quick-Attach Hinges and Grip-Tight Bumpers
Falls way short of expectations
I bought one to test for a couple of months and liked it so much I bought one for the 2nd BR. After less than a year the first seat no longer closes slowly. I opened it up and found that both "slow closing technology" (this is what Kholer calls it) mechanisms in each end are bad. I guess in the next two months I can expect the other to go bad. I could not just buy the "plungers" (what I call them because they lock the seat and lid together and contain the "slow close technology); I will have to buy (costs tax, & plus shipping and handling) the whole EB Hinge Kit for almost what I paid for the seat. Oh, and the kits are out of stock... that should tell you something. Wouldn't buy it unless you want to spend $ every year for new toilet seats. Their "slow close technology" appears to be faulty.

Fragile Prong Covers!
First the good: this seat is great at slowly closing so that no one can bang it shut. The color matched my almond toilet perfectly. What I am very disapointed with are the covers to the quick release assembly. They are extremely fragile, meaning if you do not have the assembly perfectly lined up when you try to shut the covers, they will break at the seam. In the 1 month since I installed mine, one cover is 1/2 torn at the seam. I now will no longer use the quick assembly to clean my seat, for fear that it will break all of the way.

These seats look good but I replaced three toilets in my house and have bought five seats. One came cracked and was replaced free. One toilet is used more frequently than the others and cracked after about 15 months. In all these years I've never seen a toilet seat crack just by sitting on it. Not even the cheap ones. I expected more from Kohler.

Unexpected Personal Luxury!
These toilet seats are fantastic! How funny that seems to say about such a simple necessity! Although we would have loved to have purchased the fully automatic ones, these seats have more for their small price tag at a price we can afford. My husband especially was quite impressed, and I think has used it more often than needed just to watch both seats go down automatically! It's a small luxury but unexpectedly special. Can't wait to hear the reaction of our future guests! Thank you again, FaucetDirect!

This seat is comfortable and looks great. It has this great feature of actually slowing the lid descent down so it kind of floats to the bowl rim. No more slamming. I really like the fact that it is solid to the lid, so no more gaps and the problems they create. Highly recommend. Install was not hard,

best toilet seat ever
love this toilet seat. the quiet close is awsome. i tell everyone in my house that the lid is ALWAYS to be closed. now it's easier than ever. but i really love that the seat snaps off to clean. it's a dream come true - a toilet seat that is easy to clean in the place where it gets the dirtiest.

Really great service from Faucet Direct. Fast shipping. Seat is nice. Great closing mechanism. Easy to install even for a novice. Only negative is seat arrived with a molding divot on the underside. A manufacturing flaw. I kept the seat anyway since it was on the seat bottom.

We purchased 2 of these toilet seats. We needed the Mexican sand color to match our existing toilets.
The color was perfect and the comfort of these seat are great. The slow close of the lid is very nice......we weren't looking for that feature but are now glad we have it.

Quiet at last!
Love this toilet seat for the no slam feature! It takes about 10 seconds to close and it makes no noise. Now I want to replace all of our toilet seats. We bought white and although the seat is plastic, it matches our white porcelain toilet perfectly.

I love this toilet seat!
This toilet closes quietly and now I don't worry about my boyfriend slamming the lid down when he uses the bathroom. This is one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. Also, I am a huge fan of Kohler products.
