Prior To Use:
Each Time a new box of straps is opened, they must be soaked in lukewarm water for 2 hours or hot water for 30 minutes prior to use. Soaking is one time only.
The nylon strap is designed to absorb moisture so it will stretch during installation. This strap is engineered in a way that as the mortar is drying it pulls the moisture out of the strap, making the strap more brittle so that the strap can snap off cleanly after the setting material drying is complete.

First time tiler and user if this product. The results are very high quality because of this product. Although this product does not elimate the need for solid sub floors, good surface preparation and proper planning, by eliminating lippage it does go a long way in making the job look whole lot more professional than I could have accomplished without it! Great idea and a quality product. It costs a bit but I like that it is made in the USA right down to the bucket it comes in. [...]
