Bemis vs Centoco - elevated toilet seat for aptartment

I'm thinking of spending about $110 for a toilet seat with added height for a relative. I researched the consumer grade elevated seats but after reading reviews I crossed them off my list. Then I found two seats that are marketed for public toilet use - the Centoco HL440 and the Bemis 2L2050T. Anyone have experience with either brand?

I made up my mind...I ordered the Centoco from a local home center. It's super stable and should be easy to clean, unlike the residential ones I was considering.

Dunno why I didn't see this post yesterday...but Bemis is probably the biggest maker of seats. Never heard of the other, but if it works for you, let us know.

The Bemis had an open front seat so it looked more commercial, though raised toilets don't look normal anyway so it wasn't that big a deal. I'm glad it's coming from a local store so I can save $10 shipping if I have to return it. I just hope it's not loaded with tons of antibacterial stuff or something stinky that could make you sick if it's in an apartment.

Looks like it works well. The "stainless steel hinge" is more than slightly magnetic so there's no evidence that it's stainless but I guess it is. It's uncomfortable compared to my old, thin plastic seat which flexed a little to fit my butt. The risers could trap dirt. It uses rectangular rubber gaskets at the top of the mount which I'd probably have trouble replacing if I ever wanted to. But it's good enough to keep given the reviews I read of the competition.

The open-front seat is helpful for the obese people, makes after-wiping easier.
