Let's assume for a moment that you can solve the problem that started this thread and figure out how to get this toilet secured to a flange. What assurance will you have that this will not be constantly clogging a trouble free toilet? There are many toilets around with well known brand names on them that at least do not start out needing improvised installation but don't work well. This thing is a piece of junk and should be treated as such. Sometimes one just can't afford a bargain.
