    I want to cap my roughed in toilet in my basement with something besides a rag. This would have been a good place to use a popout flange, but whoever plumbed it just used a standard one. It is a 3-1/2" diameter hole.

    Rummage in the kitchen?

    Would some type of tupperware lid fit over the flange? I find kitchen gadgets are sometimes suited as renovation tools.

    Good luck,

    You can get a mechanical plug at a plumbing supply house. These look a bit like a rubber cone with a large washer and a wingnut on top. Slide the plug into the opening, tighten the wingnut and you've got it sealed.
