How to Cut a Rusted Toilet Bolt How to Cut a Rusted Toilet Bolt

What You'll Need
Dremel Flex-Shaft Attachment #225

1. Years of condensation often rust and fuse toilet floor bolts (also known as closet bolts)
to the point where they cannot be removed conventionally.







2. Before you begin working on the bolts, shut off the toilet water supply valve and remove any water remaining in the bowl and tank.








3. Remove bolt caps to expose washers and nuts. Clear rust particles with the #442 carbon steel brush.








4. The #225 Dremel Flex-Shaft attachment will get you into the tight quarters where the bolts are located. Use the #420 cut-off wheel to slice the bolts below the nuts.
