Default Re: Tama throne warning!

This bolt can be bought at virtually any hardware store. Don't even bother calling Tama. By the time you get one from them, it might be 6 weeks! I wouldn't hold it against them, either, as they had a recall on these when they discovered it, which was the ethically correct thing to do. You did get a used throne, and it was probably one of the first ones. Look around for the recall notice. If I remember correctly, my notice listed which bolts were the culprits and what grade they would replace it with. Fortunately, mine was from the production line that was already retrofitted.
