Toilet Flapper- anyone seen this type before


We are new homeowners and our first attempt at fixing a toilet is not seeming to be an easy one. After two visits to local hardware stores everyone is saying they have never seen this type of flapper and do not know how to remove it. Anyone have any suggestions. Or have seen this before.

Thanks!

Pictures do not come up.
Just replace the whole step up and move on.

What you have is probably a Mansfield. It is most likely a cylinder with an integral flapper.

You need to go to your local Plumbing supply house and show them.
