How to cover little holes on side of toilet?

What are these tiny holes on the toilet? Is it okay to seal them with silicone?


Some of the toilets in the house have plugs that cover them. Does anyone know where I can get replacement plugs?

Re: Little holes on toilet

Hello @inno 


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's sensational to have you join us, and thanks for sharing your question about the side holes on your toilet pan.


Those little holes are access points for the anchor that holds the pan to the floor. If you flash a torch inside, you'll see the pan screw heads. The silver caps are just basically hole covers, I suggest bringing one to your local store and asking the special orders team to get some in for you as spare parts.


If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
