How Much Does A Raised Toilet Seat Cost ?

by

If you are looking after an elderly parent, or loved one, you undoubtedly have to look carefully before you buy new equipment, and if you aren’t familiar with all the different types it can all get a bit confusing.

Before my mom’s hip replacement surgery I had to look into raised toilet seats, and to find one for the job. There are about 9 different types, which are divided into a series of different height options.

A raised toilet seat costs between from $15.00 to $199.00 in the US, and between £14.00 to £479.00 in the UK. 

So what are the different types of raised seats ?

 

The seats which can be called raised, or elevated seats, fall into the following categories –

 

Temporary seats which have no fixing (locks, clamps, brackets or bolts) –

 

  • seats which slot onto the top of the toilet bowl, and several inches inside it, often having some type of grip pads,  and are called raised or elevated seats – sometimes referred to as “bubble seats”
  • Clip-on seats which are squeezed and inserted into the existing toilet seat opening and which then clip onto the seat when released

Seats which lock onto the toilet bowl –

 

  • side locking seats – these are placed on, and go partially down into, the toilet bowl, and  are fixed with side locking clamps and a front lip, or bracket – also called raised or elevated toilet seats
  • clipper seats are seats which slot onto the toilet bowl, with a deep inside rim, and  4 large plastic clips on the outside, which are pushed in against the toilet bowl to hold it in place
  • front locking seats -these fit over the top of the toilet bowl and slot partially into it with a front locking clamp, and a lip at the back which slips under the back rim of the inside of the toilet bowl – called elevated or raised toilet seats

Raised toilet seats which slot onto the toilet seat and have legs –

 

  • theses are somewhat like the front locking toilet seats, but they have the additional support of 4 legs

Seats which bolt onto the toilet for long-term use –

 

  • risers, which are simply a block of plastic which has holes that is bolted onto your toilet bowl – you take off your seat and lid, and then you bolt down the lid, and seat, through the plastic riser and onto the toilet, some risers are hinged, so they can be lifted for cleaning
  • seats with little spacers, or legs, underneath which bolt onto the toilet  available in 2 and 3 inch sizes – sometimes called “tall” toilet seats

Safety frames with elevated toilet seats – again for long term use

 

  • some elevated, or raised, toilet seats are mounted on safety frames

Bedside Commodes

 

  • certain portable bedside commodes can also be used as elevated toilet seats, very similar to the safety frames – you simply lift out the commode, or potty, and place the frame and toilet seat over the open bowl of the toilet

Where to buy raised toilet seats ?

 

The prices that you will find in this post were taken from a range of stores for the US section – Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Walgreens, Amazon, and some online specialist suppliers.

Both Walmart and Amazon have huge collections in the hundreds of raised toilet seats, but Walmart is easier to navigate, as their search results are not messed up by sellers stuffing keywords into the titles of their products.

Home Depot carries around 50 models, Lowes has over 25 models, Walgreens just over 20, and my online specialist, Rehabmart.com, has around 50 models.

If you want to know more about where to get a raised toilet seat, you can find out about all the main brands and where to get them, in my article – “Where To Buy A Raised Toilet Seat ?”.

 

The pricing of raised toilet seats

 

I have listed ranges of different risers and raised toilet seats below with their prices.

All the risers and seats are organized by height, and followed by the safety frames with raised seats, and then the portable bedside commodes.

 

How to choose a raised toilet seat ?

 

As you make your price choice, I would advise you to consider the strength, coordination and mobility of the person you have in mind for the seat.

Personally, having experience with the different types, I would suggest a safety frame, or portable commode, for anyone who is elderly and fragile, as it is easy to one’s lose balance when sitting down, or getting up, and the frames really afford the most support and are totally stable as they have four legs.

My mom has had a portable bedside commode over our toilet for the last 18 months, since she had her hip replacement, and it has helped a great deal.

My mom did try a raised seat which fitted on the toilet, but didn’t have confidence in it.

The frames and portable bedside commodes also have the benefit of having adjustable heights, just like crutches, so if you get the wrong height you can just raise, or lower, the frame to what is comfortable.

There are some raised seats out there that have adjustable heights, and I have put examples on the lists, but there are not that many.
