Repairing toilet seat


I bought a soft close toilet seat to replace our old faulty one but it keeps moving sideaays. The left side somehow keeps coming loose even though I've swapped the right sided parts with the left side.
I've already been back to the shop I bought it from and without a receipt I don't have any recourse.
Would it be worth ordering replacement parts instead of buying a completely new toilet seat.

Kind regards Mark

    It would be worth uploading a photo, there are so many variations it's difficult to give advice

    Cheap toilet seats are pretty useless, and expensive ones aren't much better. There's a market there for a design that doesn't move after you have fitted it. 
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    I added rubber washers, spring washers and wing nuts which solved the same problem. They are usually M6 size

    Thanks for everyone's replies. In the end I've bought another seat which is working great
