We renovated our guest bathroom with new flooring, but it also meant that the toilet seal had to be replaced also. This was the perfect kit and did the job!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JH Must Have Level Flange for this Seal
I ended up not using the seal because the drain flange was not level (almost 1/4" above floor on one end and almost 1/4" below floor on the other). With the foam spacer installed the front of the toilet would not sit on the floor and with the spacer out I was not sure I was getting a good seal in the back. Grout and cement from the tiled floor held the flange/drain in place.
Although I did not use the seal, I think the seal would be effective with a level drain flange. I ended up using a Fernco non wax seal that glues to the toilet and seals to the ID of the drain pipe. This type of seal can accommodate some flange misalignment.

Was dreading the repair of a leaking toilet. Went to Depot and bought both standard wax ring (just in case) and this new 'Universal' seal. The plumbing employee said he knew nothing about this item. It Works! It comes with everything you need for a toilet flange which is under the floor base and up to 1/4" (?) over. Part of the instructions say it can be repositioned- but that was unnecessary as it sealed perfectly right off the bat. The part that took the longest was removing all of the old wax and cleaning the parts. It has now been in place for ~2 weeks allowing the sub floor to dry.

We used this toilet seal for installing brand new Kohler toilet. The box with seal contains everything to accomplish installation. All I needed was wrench and measuring tape. If you provide replacement on existing toilet, you will need also putty knife to scrape off old wax seal. This kit has besides fasteners two other parts: "main" rubber seal and spacer. Enclosed instructions could not be better, besides the text they also show all steps in pictures. The most important is making the right decision, how you will mount the seal and that depends on how is floor flange installed (see pic. 3), whether with the spacer or without (pic. 4 & 5). My floor flange was mounted above the finished floor, so we did not need to use the spacer (see pic.6). Remaining installation is very simple. This product works fine, absolutely no mess and no any leaks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mari Didn't use it because it would have restricted the flow from my toilet. I gave the plumbing man at Home Depot a lesson. Got an old fashioned wax ring.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Sewer smell from toilet
Followed instructions and installation was a breeze, and no leaks. Evidently the seal isn't air tight, because when I turn my whole house fan on it draws sewer smell through the flange.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BAA1 The product seals very well and was easy to install. Compressing the seal so the toilet would set firmly on the floor was time consuming and required several cycles of compression and tigntening the bolts.

IT DOES NOT FIT IN ANY FLANGE!! JUST BOUGHT IT AND IT WILL ONLY FIT WITH THE SPACER BUT WITH OUT THE SPACER WHERE IT GOES IN TO THE PIPE ITS TO BIG AND THE RUBBER FOLDS UP ON ONE SIDE BECAUSE ITS TO BIG FOR THE PIPE. ITS ONLY GOOD IF YOUR FLANGE IS BELOW THE FLOOR AND YOU NEED THE SPACER
