I hate 12"x24" tiles. They can be a pain to get an even surface due to the bow shape from factory. This tool set every tile perfectly flush.
For months, I put off tiling the walls of master bath shower because the thought of using the large format (12 x 24) porcelain tile was intimidating. This leveling system worked beautifully! The clips were easy to install, kept the tiles nice level and evenly spaced Plus they were easier to remove than I thought they’d be. The pliers are sturdy, and ALL the plastic wedges and spacers are well formed so there is no waste due to poor manufacturing. Thanks to this product, the shower will be wonderful as soon as I can get it grouted.
I did tile work for 5 years, over 30 years ago, before the large format tiles became popular. Had a shower to do and saw everyone seemed to be using the spacer and wedge system. Though it was unnecessary, but bought this bundle just in case. Well I am glad I did. Spacer, wedges tool worked flawless to keep the tiles flat. I made sure the walls were as plumb as possible, but still ended up with some low spots. Also the larger tiles are prone to lippage and this system will help over come those issues. Cant see how the more expensive wedges would work any better. Spacers broke away cleanly and never failed during installation. Just Be careful not to have excess thinset under the spacer. Will buy again! Well I am glad I did. Worked flawless to keep the tiles flat.
I purchased these to set large tile on a floor. Having read many reviews, I decided on these and they worked just as I had hoped. They are very easy to use - a couple of tips that I learned. I found the clips difficult to put along edges unless I ensured I set them under the tiles before I set the tile down on them. Also, when ready to mallet the clips out, be sure to hit them on their sides not straight on. They break off very easy that way.
I bought these for my wall tile installation in my bathroom. Great quality! None of the spacers snapped during installation (unlike a different brand I purchased for my floor). My walls look amazing!
