That's how I've always done it...was taught by my ornery marine boss that is how you do it and I did because I thought he would probably kill me if I didn't...
He was taught by his dad how to do it that way way back in the 1950s way before there was wax rings just plumber's putty
And his dad had been doing it that way since 1930 and his grandfather since about 1900
So I figured must be the right way

When that happens to me I usually open window's paint, rotate the image and save. Make sure you exit the file because it seems PZ will still think it hasn't been rotated.

I install a few a month. I bought the toilet kart because I had a couple of expensive one piece toilets to install on fancy tile floors in some upscale place and didn't want to wreck anything.

Yesterday had a repair where it was leaking at the wax ring, over 30 years toilet had loosened up, starting leaking

Pulled up the toilet with the kart, rolled it out of the way, cleaned up the flange, new bolts, did a test fit, noticed the toilet rocked a little, so I positioned shims, there orginally wasn't shims (probably why it loosened and leaked) lifted back up, new wax, set down, bolted down, caulked, new connector, checked for leaks and proper operation, wrote invoice and collected the check, down the road to the next job

Toilet kart works great for lifting up and rolling out the door some nasty toilets that look like they haven't been cleaned in months

For 480$ screw that!!!! I could make a primo one for half that from stainless!!!! With pneumatic tires!!!!


And yeah, of course the wax ring goes on the flange first and then you set the toilet looking at the bolts through the holes. I swear the wolverine brass wax ring boxes just tell you to flip the toilet upside down so when any one who isnt a plumber tries they will just say screw that and call a plumber!

I just did a basic google search. But I contest that I could still make a better one for cheaper. Although at that price point I may have to forgo the pneumatic tires
