Q:Why does it say on the package 1/4 inch is the maximum thin set thickness that the levelers will work with? If I have a large tiles And I want to use a half inch thickness for the thin set, won’t the leveler still work?
by|Jun 6, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  1/2 inch of thin-set is too much. The maximum thickness for standard thinset is 3/8 in, but it's usually recommended to use a thinner layer of 3/16 in or less. Applying thicker layers of thinset can be expensive and may make the material unstable. Mike

Answer This Question

A:  The QEP Pro Installation Pliers are not intended to be used for closing a gap between snap flooring. However, we do offer installation kits to help reduce the gap which include a pull bar, tapping block and mallet. Please check model LP2218. Customer Care

        First time using this product as a spacer for my tiles. Working on tiling the walls, which really help to level the tile in place. After leaving them in place for a day or two, there are easy to remove by just tapping them. LESSON LEARN: When putting in the Wedge and using the QEP Tile Leveler, you have to remember not to squeeze to hard or the clip could break off. Very easy to use the clips, wedges and QEP, which helped make the job easier.

        I actually had to return everything. I ran out of time to install tiles for the bathroom surround and instead had to use a preformed, cut to fit system for the bathtub to the ceiling. This worked beautifully and had everything cut, cured and caulked within 24 hrs.

        Don't Use the QEP LASH System Without These!
        I'm a DIY guy who tackled my own shower. As I researched I determined I was going to use the LASH system for my wall tiles. It worked great and this tool was absolutely essential to getting the wedges in cleanly without moving the freshly installed tiles. I highly recommend it (and make sure to clean it off after you use it as it gets a bit gnarly with thinset from your hands and the tile).

          Great tool for the job. Helps put the right pressure on the wedges without having to accidentally move tile around with your hands. Not to mention when you have to do a few hundred of them your hands will thank you for using this tool.

          I used the system to install 12"X24" wall tile in a small bathroom. The tile is dimensional but the system still worked fine. I did not have any challenges as stated in other reviews. I did install with 1/16" grout line. The results were great!

          Its very strong. The only issue is making sure the two tiles being aligned, are level over their whole length. The tool allows you to pull the tile edge up thereby pulling it out of the thinset. Having said this, if you're using levelers, this tool almost guarantees a smooth edge to edge transition from tile to tile.

          The Lash System performed well enough; however, we found the Pro Installation Pliers to be a little awkward and time consuming. Using our hand to snug the wedge seemed to work just as well and occasionally using the pliers in when we needed to snug up the tile to level better.
