Default Tank to Bowl Bolts, T-Bolts

Anyone out there make any brass tank to bowl bolts and T-Bolts besides Wolverine Brass? Having the best possible bolts is a pet peeve of mine. I always use Wolverine Brass tank to Bowl bolts, even on new installs. I never use the bolts that come with the water closet. I also always use the double nutted 5/16" T-Bolts, I hate the 1/4" bolts most people use. Any other manufacturers put out bolts on par or better than the ones that Wolverine Brass does?

I use these.




johni quick bolt

Unique new patented bolting system for mounting toilets. Eliminates wobbly bolts and the need for double-nutting, flimsy wax, putty or thin plastic washers. Fast and easy; just push down and twist to tighten in one quick motion. Includes two solid brass bolts, two cap nuts, two stainless steel washers, and two heavy-duty plastic washers.

I just bought these today. Tank bolts are brass. I keep a little red screwdriver in my shirt pocket with a magnet on the end. When purchasing tank bolts, I touch my magnet to the bolt; if my magnet sticks, I don't buy 'em.

I don't know who the maker was but I grabbed an old bag out of the bin of my truck. It came with double nuts 1 set was slime for under the tank, I wish I could find more the ones I can get here come with 2 nuts and the head is way small.

99% of the time I install kohler toilets and use what comes with them. I believe they are 5/16" bolts. Never had a problem with other brands though. I use what the manufacture gives me. No reason not to.

These are the type I use, American Standard. Large bolt head that covers almost the entire washer.
