Product Overview

The Toilet Flange Template and Tile Guide that makes tiling a bathroom floor fast and easy. This innovative template fits around the toilet drain flange and leaves straight sides where tile can be cut straight with a tile cutter to butt up against the square guide sides. This is a much easier job than traditional tile nipping to match up to the round flange. Just leave the template in place and install the toilet right over the tile and guide as usual. Removable ears make the guide compatible with most toilets and toilet wax bowl rings. In addition, the guide's label card works as a debris and odor cover over the flange opening while the rest of the bathroom tiling job is being completed. Simply remove the label card before the toilet is put in place.

  • No more nipping or grinding tiles
  • For installing bathroom tile around the toilet drain flange
  • Provides straight edges for tile cutting instead of rough tile nipping for fitting round flange
  • For 1/4 in. to 3/8 in. tile and stackable for thicker tile installations
  • Label card works as debris and odor shield during completion of bathroom installation
  • Made of durable recycled polypropylene
  • Helps protect the sub-floor around the flange from future water damage and rot

What do I do if I remove the "dog ears"?

How do I handle installation if I removed the dog ears from the tile guide?
Asked by: Matt
Oh I guess you only remove those if the back of the toilet is narrow, which most toilets are not. I would say if you remove them you would have to use adhesive and place them back down where they belong or cut tiles to fit in that spot. At least it would still be straight cuts. The thing is so cheap, you could probably just grab another one too if you don't want to cut the triangle tiles.

closet flange height

should the closet flange be level with the finished floor to prevent rocking of the toilet? Can the closet flange be above the finished floor and not rock? thanks
Asked by: johnT
Yes it can be above floor level. I would say no more than .5 inch.

Would I need to double stack?

If this is to mount to the sub floor, and the backer board butts up to it, wouldn't I need to stack them since I would have the thickness of the backboard and thickness of the tile? If I do need to stack, is there anything that needs to go between the two tile guides?
Asked by: sgc
Yes, stacking can be done, Use silicone to adhere them together. Thank You for your question.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplified tile installation It was quite simple, put down some thin-set and lay the tile guide down in place. One it was set, cutting the tile to fit was simple to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product especially for beginners This product is fantastic. This was my first tile project that i put off for a long time because I wasn't sure how to tile around the toilet flange. I found this by accident and am grateful for my luck. The best part is the sticky paperback which prevents sewer gases from coming into the bathroom while you tile the floor. Because of this i only had to make two 90 degree cuts with a rented tile saw. Love this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beware of toilet width before using Easy to install. The descriptions say it will be covered by Most toilets. After tiling my powder room, installing oak baseboards and molding, I tested the fit of the toilet. The corners of the tile guide showed outside the tapered back of base. I ended up buying a new toilet with a straight wide base to cover it up. It was only 1 under $300.00 at Home Depot that had a wide straight base. So beware, most toilets DO Not cover the tile guide. You may be able to cover it if you break off the back tabs on it. But then you would not have straight cuts coming up to it. The other option is to lay the tile over it. The tile guide is 8 inches wide. The base of the toilet back is 7 inches wide. Almost all of the toilets at Home Depot had the same measurements. That width is not given in the toilet specs on the boxes. That said, measure your toilet base before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I demanded my contractor use one!!! We had our second floor bathroom remodeled about 3 years ago. I noticed a water spot on the ceiling below the bathroom. I called the contractor that did the job. When he pulled the toilet I could see the gaps between the tile and the toilet flange where the water went rotting the floor. The wax ring must have failed. Before he started the repairs, I saw the tile guide online and got one. I showed it to my contractor but he acted leery. When he got to the tiling, he used it as I requested. He cemented it to the new subfloor. When the bath was finished, he thanked me for showing him the guide. The guide made his job easier and he liked the result. There were no open gaps like before and he said that if the wax ring fails again, the water would appear around the edges of the toilet on the floor letting me know there was a problem so my floor doesn't rot again.
