The PVC closet flange on our toilet was cracked at one of the T-bolt insert slots so that the toilet could not be secured properly to the flange. I do not hesitate to call a professional when professional assistance is needed but I also don't hesitate to do my homework when required. We decided on the Stainless-Steel Flange Repair Ring. I had to remove material from the ceramic floor tiles around the existing PVC flange so that the stainless-steel flange ring would fit over the existing flange. I used a Dremel cordless tool with a Dremel Model #9901 1/8-in Tungsten Carbide Cutter to remove sufficient the material from the ceramic floor tiles around the existing flange to provide sufficient clearance for the stainless-steel flange ring to fit over the existing PVC flange. A slight amount of hammer and chisel work was needed for the finishing touches. Once the stainless-steel flange ring was mounted over the PVC flange ring, I drove four wood screws (not provided in the stainless-steel flange repair kit) to secure the stainless-steel flange ring to the underlying plywood floor. The toilet was installed successfully. I can't imagine a better solution for a flange repair.

Stainless steel, works great. I was tiling my bathroom floor and found the plastic flange had broken and I did not want to go through the trouble of cutting and chipping the old one out. I found this at the store and decided it would be an easier fix since I already had the tapcons. This flange slipped right over the plastic flange, I drilled three holes through the plastic flange and into the concrete floor, and then drove the tapcons in. It's mounted solidly and the toilet mounted to it without too much fuss.

Easily installed (considering the need to drill into old concrete. It will last much longer than I will!

Great product. Worked well. TIP- had to drill addition holes through broken PVC flange to make anchor bolts equal distance from wall because matching the existing holes did not work. Then the hammer drill with pilot bit and concrete screws and it was a done deal. Used the Perfect Seal toilet wax ring and it was worth the money and worked perfectly with no mess.

Ordered this product to repair a broken PVC flange in my upstairs guest bathroom. Removed the toilet cleaned off the old wax seal and screwed the repair unit to the old flange. Placed new flange bolts in place and reinstalled the wax seal and toilet. Bolted the toilet in place and that's it. Whole procedure took me about 45 minutes. It took longer to remove and install the toilet than it did to drill the holes and screw down the unit. This unit is just what the doctor ordered for repair. I can see where this might be a problem for repairing a cast iron flange, but for PVC this is the best.

It's a single flange, works as designed. What else can you say about the standard part?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maverick66 worked like a charm
Installing a new American Standard Cadet toilet (five stars by the way) but I broke off one side of the PVC closet flange. Oops. Screwed this unit right through the PVC using 3 inch zinc coated deck screws. No predrilling. The base was wood so the screws cut right through the plastic flange and into wood. Don't know how this would work with a cement base. The bathroom also had tile installed, which put the original closet flange lower than the base of the tiles. This product gave a little elevation. Used an extra tall reinforced wax ring. Perfect.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OregonPE Not good for repairing steel flanges
I can see how this would work for a plastic flange, but a metal flange relies on the fact the the plastic pipe part in the middle comes through the flange. It is impossible to do this without cutting the flange in half which is what I eventually did. If your steel flange is rusted through and finally lets go your soil pipe will drop down and disconnect itself from the underside of the toilet and make a huge mess.
I think a split flange is a better solution for a steel flange.
