Answer: 
The only type I would think this wouldn't work with is a mosaic, because the pieces are so small. The larger the tile, the more I'd recommend the LASH system. The floor I used this on has both marble and ceramic 12 x 12 tiles with a glass and stone mosaic between the rows. I DID NOT use the LASH on the mosaic stripes, but they saved my sanity (and my hair!) everywhere else

Answer: 
These long narrow tiles really need a tile leveling system, they are very prone to lippage. However, consider another leveling system as the LASH part A Ts are very prone to breakage both in the bag and when applying pressure to level tile surfaces.

First and foremost, as a professional tile setter, the ultimate performance for this type of system is achieved with tile sizes 12 x 18 and up. Not suited for tile sizes smaller then that or mesh mosaics,medallions,etc.

First and foremost, as a professional tile setter, the ultimate performance for this type of system is achieved with tile sizes 12 x 18 and up. Not suited for tile sizes smaller then that or mesh mosaics,medallions,etc.
Secondly, using these clips will give you a mortar bed thickness of 3/8" Plus, so if floor height is an issue
( tile to other flooring transitions ) this system is not for you, however, if it isn't, then you will be fine.
Thirdly, you have to allow the mortar bed to set and dry completely ( 36 hrs.) before attempting to snap the vertical piece from the base, otherwise you could accidently pull the tile from the floor or worse yet, snap the tile, so be careful!
Try and avoid getting any amount of mortar on the vertical section where the horizontal clips get pushed in as it makes the snapping more difficult and easier to remove.
But then again, nothing beats a level!!

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic product for laying a flat tile floor I used the LASH tile leveling system for a small bathroom remodel. Approx. 40 sq ft of tile, 8"x18" sized tile, 1/2" thick travertine on a running bond pattern. I had issues with the floor being unlevel, and was very concerned about lippage on this job (showcase type install, wanted awesomeness on the first try). The product is very easy to use, esp. when combined with the LASH tightening plyers (not sure of the technical name) - I bought that tool online at a retailer who was PRIMED to go. I used 2 bags of the clips and 2 bags of the wedges on the floor due to the pattern I selected and the size of my tile. I used a 1/2"x1/2" square notched trowel to lay an appropriate amount of thinset on the floor. The product was very easy to use - trowel out thinset, lay down tile, insert clips at the appropriate locations, lay next tile, insert clips, and so on. I usually laid 2-3 tiles, then inserted wedges and tightened with the plyers. This continued until the job was done. The clips left about 1/8 inch gap between tiles, but to be honest, I didn't have perfectly consistent grout lines when I was done - anywhere from 1/8 to 3/16. I could have done better here. Would I recommend this product? Heck yes, especially for a newby like me. The larger tiles were hard to level out, and I can tell you, there's only 2, maybe 3 spots on the floor that didn't align perfectly with zero lippage. My wife will tell you that if I hadn't pointed the spots out, she probably wouldn't have noticed. I had zero issues with quality control - no broken clips in the bag, and no premature breakages when using the plyers to tighten the wedges. Great product, highly recommended! July 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tile leveling system As a professional flooring installer these leveling clips are a must!! I've used too many different styles over the years that slow you way down or dont work well, or way to expensive. These I've found easy to use, do take sometime, but really save time when it comes to not having to fight uneven substrate. With the trends going to wood plank look tiles that are often 3-4ft long I dont hesitate to use these. Ive been using these for years and so happy that they are finally in the market enough to have the price way down to what it is now. Used to be hard to find and hard to justify to clients on the bill. March 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not for every tile job. I feel sorry for the person that has never tiled before and choose to use these there is a learning curve to this product. First use a lot of grout the spacers have a curve to them. I also broke a couple of them by over tightening which was a pain because then you have to take the tile back off and replace the spacer I could have done a better job by eye... Back butter tile and grout the wall also or you will be sorry. For some applications this product would be good but not all. August 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good, but not perfect. You have to use more glue as this clips raising tile of the floor an extra about 1/8" August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Where has this product been? Saw this product being used on a YouTube video, tried it and they worked great! They are a bit difficult to use, but once you get the gang of it, they work great! Used them with wood plank tile that were staggered and it was a big help! Although you need a lot more of the product with this type of application. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So easy to use! So easy to use and my first job came out great! I like that part of the system is reuseable. April 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good, but... These clips certainly helped me install large format tile shower walls flat and even. I used a 1/2" x 1/2" trowel and raked mortar on both the tile and wall. These clips will hold the tile off the wall about 3/8" at first, and then about 3/16" when you compress it with the wedge. So make sure you use enough mortar. My issue is that because it spaces so much when you set the tile, you don't really feel the thinset making complete contact. I did my bottom row of tile last and didn't use the clips. It was nice to have the feeling of pressing the thinset in to place. Next time I will buy the more expensive kind with the flat backs. Not sure why these need to have rounded backs. February 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If I could give it a zero, I would I bought these because I ran out of T-Lock leveling wedges and I needed something in a hurry. It would have been better to use nothing at all. The curved bottom of these holds the tile up and makes spacing them completely impossible and nearly useless. The wedges are too small to actually work. Horrible. Frustrating. Time consuming. Waste of money.....etc., etc. Spend the extra money and buy the T-Lock or similar you won't be sorry. August 9, 2016
