Product Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Concept, Poor Execution As a big fan of Kohler products, I was excited about this release. I prefer wooden seats with an enamel finish but the lure of the nightlight was irresistible. Initial reaction – I was a little disappointed to find plastic hinges and the circuitry for the light is not especially well-sealed, which makes me question its longevity due to water exposure. The nuts for the mounting bolts were a little unusual as well. They don’t actually engage the bolts until they are pressed firmly into the holes on the toilet, essentially making them quick-release nuts for lack of a better term. Being a fan of wooden seats, the plastic didn’t exactly thrill me but it’s better than some composites I’ve seen. Installation – aside from the learning curve involved with the goofy nuts, installation was quick and easy. Removal once I figured out that the batteries can only be installed without the seat being mounted was just as easy. The non-slip rubber inserts on the seat are fantastic and keep the seat firmly planted for more active users (they must be out there) once they are inserted correctly. This could take a few tries. The plastic base of the hinge spread slightly when I tightened the bolt down but the seat hasn’t loosened as a result. Yet. Use – This was my first experience with a quiet-close seat and I have to admit I’m not a fan. I have a thirsty cat with whom I battle daily to keep out of the toilet and the quiet-close just closes too slowly. I didn't subtract points for the quiet-close feature, I'm just not fond of it. The light is fantastic! It is a very soft glow that is bright enough for navigation and use without turning on a light, and it makes the water look luminescent. Very cool effect. Bottom line – the concept is alluring but I would like to see the light feature on a higher quality seat. The materials just don’t justify the price, especially when you consider the cost of a plug-in nightlight. Kohler makes fantastic products but this one feels rushed. With better hinges and a wooden seat, this would be a grand slam.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept that could be improved upon The Kohler K-4888 toilet seat with the nightlight feature is a great concept. My 10 year old was excited to see the new blue glow in/around the toilet. In our bathroom, which is a pretty dark bathroom, the nightlight was not nearly as bright as I was hoping. The quiet close feature is a great feature if you have kids in the house that like to slam the lip upon departure. Overall, I like the look & quality of the seat, just wish it was a little brighter. Side note, the first seat arrived with a broken piece and Build.com was quick to replace it. Their customer service is why I repeatedly order from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Easy to install. No-crash closing feature was primary motivator; night light is a snazzy but non-critical adder. Light stays on for 7(?) hours (haven't timed it) as advertised. Light does not go on when seat or lid is opened at other times. Feels very solid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kohler toilet seat with nightlight The light is very dim hard to see if it is actually on, even in total darkness. It did not come with any instructions, how to open battery compartment , how to turn it on, how long it stays on, nothing!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected... When I first received this, the light assembly was not working. When I contacted Build.com about this, a replacement part was quickly sent out. Installation was fairly easy, but the light is battery powered and it appears that when the batteries die, that I will have to completely remove the seat to access the batteries for replacement. Also, the switch for the light is on the back of the seat, so if you are a germaphobe, this may be an issue for you because you have do some "rooting" around back there to find the switch. I was excited to receive this product just in time for my father's visit. He is in his 70's and we always have a battle about how he has to turn on every light from his bedroom to the bathroom in the middle of the night and it wakes us up. I thought this, along with some nightlights would be the solution to our problem. Unfortunately, the blue light does not illuminate the space well enough and he reverted back to turning on the bathroom lights, but he did assure me that he tried to use it as intended first. It would be enough light for me, but honestly, I don't need any lights to use the bathroom at night, so maybe that is not a good indicator? I really do like the concept, but I think this product could be tweaked to provide better light and easier access to the on/off button and the batteries.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Toilet Seat Review Nice and steamlined design. Easy to install. Instructions state that once the light is turned on, it will stay on for 7 hours and turn off, coming on again at the same time every day. On our unit, the light does not automatically turn off. I find no additional trouble shooting info.
