Doesn't look like they do. But if you have time and a disposable camera, a screwdriver and some scotch tape, you can make one.

oooops!
Can't find the bolts to secure the toilet to the flange.
It's been a while since I got the toilet out and got the floors done so no idea where I place them.
They didn't come with the valve, the seal did but no the bolts.
1. Does anyone remembers the size by any chance?
2. Also is it recommended to used any sealers while placing the seal between the toilet and the flange?

Hmmmmm. Broke the new one! Sounds like one of my projects. Still waiting for backwards install, or is it reinstall? I'm so confused. LOL

Y'know, I could be wrong (after all, it happens regularly ) but I -think- you may have the closet gasket (you call it the "seal") on backwards.

Would somebody have a look and see if I am right? Been a long while since I did one of those, but I think that wide part goes up against the underside of the toilet...

If I am right, just pull the gasket off, turn it around, and shove it back on.

I'm referring to the top picture in post #31

iirc, standard length is ~ 2.25", long is ~ 3.5". my guess would be the shorter ones. two sets should cost < $5; return the unused ones. you simply hacksaw any extra length off after installation.

you might be right Aage, especially if it were a wax ring and not a rubber (?) gasket. I'd look up the install instructions from the manufacturer to be sure.

thanks for the observation, I just had it laying there and that was also a curiosity that I had.
While removing the toilet I figured that whatever it was there as a closet gasket it wasn't rubber, I thinking that it had a Wax Ring.
Based on researchs people tend to dislike the Wax Ring for many reasons and I'm assumming that the original rubber closet gasket should be better and hope that someone jumps in regarding the correct direction of it before the installation.

iirc, standard length is ~ 2.25", long is ~ 3.5". my guess would be the shorter ones. two sets should cost < $5; return the unused ones. you simply hacksaw any extra length off after installation.

thanks for the help regarding the length...I really don't like buyin 8 different sizes and combinations of screws and bolts to ending using just 2....and then ending loosing the other 6

They go with the 2 you can't find, although a week after you finish, "there they are".
