How to Quick Release a Kohler Rutledge Toilet Seat

The Kohler Grip-Tight Rutledge toilet seat is manufactured from stain-resistant plastic, and the seat gets its Grip-Tight name because it does not shift from side to side during use. The toilet seat features a Quiet-Close lid to prevent slamming and Quick-Attach hardware for easy installation. The toilet seat is designed with the company's Quick-Release system, which allows you to quickly remove the seat for cleaning of both the seat and the toilet itself. No tools are needed for this task.
