      I just installed a new toilet after tiling the floor, and had to use a flange extender. I used a fluid master #3 wax kit along with the flange screws. Because of this the screws didn’t leave a lot of protrusion. The installation was sucessful however I didn’t realize those screws had the cut off ring. This ring is well below the bolt and the only way to correct this is to tear it all apart and replace them. I don’t want to do this. I just would like someone with experience to tell me the tinsil strength is just fine and I shouldn’t have any problems.

      They will be okay, they break off when you bend them to the side, on a steady up pull I think you are safe.Yor bowl will breaknbefore they do.
