The proper repair would be to replace the flange, usually a fairly easy task. But you can also use the crescent shaped metal strips, one on the top of the cast iron and one beneath it with the bolt through them and a nut on the top to clamp them in place.

: After removing a friend's toilet, I found that the cast floor flange had been broken. One bolt can still be mounted through the flange, but the other side will not hold a bolt. Someone before has used a flat strip of metal (about 1/2" wide by 4" long) to hold the bolt upright. It doesn't appear that the flat strip will catch the intact edge of the flange very well. Is this repair satisfactory, or should the flange be replaced?
