closet bolt problem
Posted by Radd on March 19, 2003 at 03:14:19:
Purchased an older home - found out that the toilet was loose - it appears that the closet bolt was over tightened causing the bolt to pull up through what I assume is a plastic flange - tried to replace the closet bolt with a new one put it will not tighten because it cannot hold in the flange - keeps slipping through

Is there some way to fix this problem - some different type of bolt that can be inserted without removing the toilet bowl - something like a carriage type bolt that will spread underneath and catch the flange as you tighten the bolt??
