My experience was the exact same as many others!!! Everything was dandy until the next morning when going to finish the job. !!!!!!!!! ALL TILES OVER 8" FELL !!!!!!!!! Please take heed, look at my pictures and others!!! We have a smaller kitchen and it took my wife and an entire Saturday (14) hours to hang with this stuff. It looked great and as many others on here I am a perfectionist and laid the tile straight and perfect. Before we could even finish hanging, the tile fell!!! If I good give it a no star I would, same as others

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Guy2582 Read the directions before buying and don't believe what everyone will tell you!
I bought this based on a recommendation for a back splash I was doing. The tile was a mosaic on a mat that was not meant for grout. The installation went smoothly enough, and looked great for about two weeks...then I was randomly awakened at night by the sound of backsplash tiles falling to the kitchen floor. This product is meant only for tiles up to 8 inches and requires grouting. DO ATTEMPT TO USE THIS FOR ANY TILE OTHER THAN WHAT THE BOX SAYS EVEN IF SOMEONE SWEARS IT WILL WORK FOR YOU!!!!! I just finished re-doing my entire backsplash this time with cement board and mortar which honestly didn't take much longer and I know it won't be going anywhere. This is not all the fault of the product as much as a bad recommendation from someone who obviously didn't know what they were talking about. Just read the answers in here people will blindly recommend this product for all types of installs it isn't meant for. If you plan to use a large tile or mosaic especially grout free do yourself a favor and go the traditional mortar route...you will be much happier two weeks down the road!!

This tape is the easiest and cleanest product for me to install back splash. At first i was a bit worry after reading some of the not so great reviews, but it was a piece of cake after studying on university of YouTube!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sunny Hard to cut...
I have never worked with tile. My brother-in-law, who is a licensed contractor, told me that my brother had used this product and loved it. I'm all about finding an easier way of doing something so I bought a roll of this stuff. I also bought a box of the sheets, in case I didn't have enough. (I was doing my kitchen and 2 bathrooms in a house I haven't moved into yet.) So, today I was to begin my adventure in doing the kitchen back splash. My brother-in-law and my brother were at the house doing other projects. So I felt comfortable having help if I needed it. After opening this roll of "SIMPLEMAT" I asked my brother if he had any suggestions on how to cut it since it only had paper on one side of the two way sticky mat. He said, "I didn't use that stuff. I used the sheets in the box that had paper on BOTH sides of the sticky mat, I was able to cut it with scissors." Then my licensed contractor said, "let me get a razor blade". To make a long story a little shorter, now I know how a fly feels when it's stuck to fly paper!!! This stuff is sticky!!! I finally gave up. My brother-in-law said I lasted longer than he would've. LOL! So, I switched over to the box of sheets that had backing on both sides of the sticky mat. Much easier to measure and cut. If you have a large area that doesn't need any cutting, like around window sills, then use the roll. I would also recommend that you have all your tile ready to go because this stuff will dry out and lose some of it's adhesiveness. I had difficulty with a couple of tiles sticking after I had to cut them so maybe they were too damp? Anyway, I headed back to HD to get another box of the sheets.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Randy550 DANGER....probably not for many tile projects
This product is not EASIER.
This product is not FASTER.
This product was very disappointing.
Just spent the last two hours removing the tile that I put up yesterday.
Approximately 20% of the tiles moved overnight.
Many tiles required construction adhesive to keep them from falling off the product.
If you do use this product, you must grout immediately to keep the tiles in place. I decided to wait over night because I had used an adhesive for many tiles to keep them from falling off the wall. The adhesive needed time to bond the tile to the plastic sheet. I had removed the spacers anticipating grouting. BIG MISTAKE! Overnight many tiles migrated down the wall.
Also, do small areas at a time. We put the adhesive rolls up on the entire wall before setting the tile. After about three hours, the "tackiness" of the product began to diminish.
Now I have a plastic product on my wall that is next to impossible to remove. I will test some adhesive on this product to see if I can tile over it.
This would have been much easier AND faster if we had just used tile adhesive.

Large double stick tape works well for quick installation of ceramic tile on your wall. Easy installation.

Sales person at Home Depot talked my wife into this product. I looked over the directions 3 times and still had all my tile fall off the wall. I would like to thank the sales person for wasting $150 in tile and 2 hours of my time to go back and buy the right stuff. I would also like to thank Home Depot for not standing behind the products they sell.
