    Drive Medical Padded Raised Toilet Seat

    I also found this seat that I purchased from amazon.com for $67.00. I took off all of the aluminum hardware and mounted just the padded seat on lexan.

    Drive Medical padded raised toilet seats can be found at their web site:

Normally I would buy a new one for $148 which is a quick fix because you just pop the cushion off and pop the new one on and your ready to go!

    Now that all the cushions are bought up I made my own cushion for less than $50 dollars. I first purchased a 3/8" thick piece of lexan 18" x 18" which is a strong clear plexiglass material from a glass store; a store that sells or fixes glass windows and doors. A padded toilet seat from Sears Hardware, white silicon rubber and four stainless steel blots, washers and nuts.

    Very impressive.

    That makes me wonder if sugru would work. I bet it would: http://sugru.com/

    Thanks for all the great tips and idea for carrying out a repair.

    But there must a be a company somewhere in the US that covers foam with vinyl...
    Just like the poolside equipment.
    I could handle having one as a backup and sending the other to be repaired every time it splits.
    Until then, back to repairing...

    Hopefully this may help others..

    I was using alcohol wipes to clean my vinyl seat.

    After speaking with the company
    I was told by the company not to use alcohol to clean the vinyl cover.

    Only use bleach.

    Can't say conclusively this is why it cracked...

    i've got an active-aid toilet seat just like yours. mine looks like it was used since the 70,s. i've had mine duct taped over and over.

    i figured any upholstery shop could cover it. the problem is not having a back-up.
