Ok, so it’s not exactly a technological break-through on par with space travel or even the phone you’ve got in your pocket. But if you hate it when people slam toilet seats as much as I do, particularly in the middle of the night, you’ll be thanking the engineers over at KOHLER. Their ‘Transitions’ elongated toilet seat features the company’s “Quiet-Close” technology which ensures the seat doesn’t come slamming down with a loud crash that will annoy/waken everyone in the house. Or more importantly, just me.

The Transitions toilet seat will also appeal to families with little ones in the house since it features a smaller child ring that can be flipped down making it safer for kids to use the toilet. I’m not sure how comfortable it would be using the adult ring while the contoured child ring is flipped up as a backrest, but quick release-hinges also make it easy to remove as needed. $96.75, available directly from KOHLER.

    I guess if you havent seen it before its news to you. I've had a no slam seat in my house for alteast 2 years now, and im sure they've been around prior to even that. The little ring seems annoying if thats going to be on your back when 'big boys' need to drop the Cosby kids off at the pool…

    well, we can buy soft close lids at our Aldi in Denmark (cheapest and most discount supermarket) at around $20. They've been around for at least 5-6 years. still, they are really nice untill the mechanism breaks down 🙂

    that's insane. I bought a couple of soft close seats last year….for $50 a pop. One is Kohler and the other is Bevis (or Brevis??). Silly to pay $100.

    I bet that's a surprising day when the mechanism stops working… SLAM!

    I think the child section is brilliant. My 4 Year old is always looking like he is going to fall in.
