    OK, this is probably a simple question, but here it is anyway :eek:

    Are there special screws to use to screw the closet flange to the plywood floor?

    If not what type of screw is correct to use?

    Thanks,
    Joel

    I'm no expert, but I think you should useing stainless steel or brass wood screws so that there is no risk of rust.

    Stainless steel is my preference.

    I recently used 2" long #10 stainless wood screws to mount a toilet flange, but it looks like #12 would also easily have fit.

    I'd use the largest diameter that the flange would take. They should be long enough to go through the subfloor.
