Rated 2 out of 5 by Garry Didn't match screw holes
I thought changing the hinges on a Homebase toilet seat using Homebase replacement hinges kit would be straight forward, how wrong I was. Removing the old broken brackets from the toilet seat was easy enough, the issue was when I come to attach the replacements and found two issues. Firstly the new screws were too small so they would not tighten up, but fortunately I kept the original screws. Then came the second issue that after screwing the hinges to the toilet seat lid I then found that the hinges were fractionally wider than the old hinges and therefore the screw holes did not line up on the toilet seat base. Fortunately the amount was enough for me to mark the new holes and drill new holes with a 3mm drill, then using the old screws I was able to create new threads and it worked. But seriously I was not pleased, it was meant to be a simple replacement of hinges on a toilet seat that both came from Homebase.

As soon as you pick this up, you can feel the weight of the hardware.
They may cost more than others but these hinges were of much better quality than the ones I replaced.
Also, this pack comes with eight fixing screws which others do not include.
I only tightened up these screws after I completed the fitting to allow for final adjustment.
If you find the threaded posts need to be tightened, wrap a cloth around the thread so as not to damage it and turn them slowly with a pair of grips over the cloth.

I bought these to replace the hinged on a wooden seat, but they don't seem to be much better than the original ones, and at over 1/2 the price of a complete new seat I would have expected better.
