Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cindi Needs a lot of improvement/re-engineering
This product needs some significant improvement. It doesn't have nearly enough connection points and the result is ridiculously flimsy. The two vertical pieces are screwed together in only two places and the top piece has three places on either side to attach to the vertical sides. Once you cut the pieces down to the size you need, you aren't left with much to hold it together! I ended up using pieces of hay string (which, when frayed, have strong fibers that are like strong thread) to tie everything together so I could place them with more confidence. The video says that if the curbs seem to wobble, don't worry about it. Um. YES, I would worry about it. It's pretty important to have the sides vertical and the top horizontal and it's really hard to maintain that on one piece if it wobbles out of place again while working on another piece of curb! I probably could have rigged something myself using scraps of materials.

Confusing. Picture shows a large 5 ft shower. Product is only 30". I had to order 2 BD one after receiving first one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DLMDIYer Kirb-Perfect Shower Curb kit worth the money
I recently pulled out an old 5' tub and replaced it with a custom designed 5' wide shower. Building the shower pan free-hand was ok, but using the curb kit was awesome! I combined two curb kits together to cover the full 5' length and the result was a straight, square, and level curb with very little extra effort. I'm a weekend DIYer and this was my first attempt at building a custom shower pan. I used a couple coats of RedGuard to waterproof the shower pan and 2x4s used for my curb foundation (the curb kit fit around them nicely), then put the curb kit in place screwing it in place from the outside only and checking that it sloped slightly into the shower, then packed in the mud to form the curb. I highly recommend using a curb kit, especially on your bigger projects.

Looks like this product is a single solution on the market that helps to build customized shower curb. Easy to prepare and install. Gently protects waterproof PVC liner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toolman Patience required
The end result was worth it but it took a lot of effort and patience. I had to trim the dovetail connections so they would work but other than that it performed as advertised. I've done 7 showers using forms and was glad to have another option that works.
