    Broken Toilet Flange

    My toilet flange is broken. I noticed the toilet was loose and it looks like both of the notches where the bolts go are broken. See attached picture. Is there enough flange left to use a stainless steel repair ring? There is also a picture with the repair ring in place. Thanks in advance.
