    And I agree, the hard part is centering the toilet over the flange and bolts. I put a piece of 3/8 lav supply over the bolts. It helps me line things up and then I just pull them out.
    Good tip on the lav supply.

      I find a straw from a malt (cut into two pieces) is the perfect guide for aligning the toilet

        I dunno... I guess I'm lucky as I don't really have the pain problem. I generally straddle them, grab either side of the bowl just in front of the tank, straighten back, then pull them up and do the toilet waddle out of the bathroom to where I have enough room to pull them up to my chest and out from between my legs. Lord do I hate 24" bathroom doors... oughta be a law.
        This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

          Most of the time I break them down. Rather not have the extra weight, water, & awkwardness.

          A large contractor garbage bag works real well if you have to remove it to somewhere else. Tilt and tuck under. You can envelope the whole bowl. No water or accidental wax on anything.
