    I bought a Champion 4 Everclean toilet seat and it is soooo slooooow (over 15 secs for the seat and nearly *25* secs for the lid) ... it just feels very stiff maybe because it's new? Will it loosen up and speed up over time? Is there a way I can lubricate it?

    I suspect the spring tension is too tight. I do not know if there is an adjustment, but I doubt it. Lubrication will do no good. I don't think it will loosen up with time. Maybe an exchange is in order.

    Is there a reason that it needs to close quickly?
    I'm guessing it's going to speed up a bit over time as it wears in.
