Q:Once you put this in to reverse the direction, could you nail it using the floor stapler first be...
by|Oct 14, 2019
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Yes . You definitely want this inserted into the groove, even use a little wood glue, then use the stapler as you normally would to nail down the new starter row.

    A:  It has been awhile, try it on a test piece first. I don't think I skipped nailing that row, but can't remember. I think the cleat just misses it. Worst case, if it splits spline, glue it in the night before. Glue it first to make the joint more solid and avoid any future squeaks. Love them, can't do the job without them. Best wishes.

      A:  once spline is in place between to grooved sides (with wood glue) of hardwood flooring you reverse Direction of floor stapler and start stapling the tongue of the next row

        A:  No. Absolutley no . I may apply a thin strip of construction adhesive ,only if the subfloor is not strong. Spline has a tendency of braking and separate itself from groove. Good luck

            Q:Are there different sizes for different flooring

            Answer This Question

            A:  As far as I know, this spline is only for 3/4” flooring. I don’t think it will work for any other thickness. I do not know if splines are made for any other thickness.

            by|Jul 15, 2019

            A:  I bought this for 1/2" engineered hard wood, and they did NOT fit. I only needed one, so I manually cut one down to size. You'll note the complete lack of description as to exactly what this will fit! To be clear, though, every manufacturer everywhere does the same thing. As far as I could tell, this is the only sized slip tongue that you can buy, and it does NOT fit all types of tongue and groove flooring. Nobody tells you that.

              A:  These are the standard size for all 3/4 inch hardwood tongue and groove flooring. They worked very well in a groove to groove situation when reversing the flooring direction.

              by|Jun 2, 2021

                A:  Yes, and when I ordered my flooring in the store, they added the correct size and quantity to my order. If you are ordering online, you could ask the online chat agent. My flooring is 3/4" solid tongue and groove oak hardwood (prefinished). These splines seemed to work great for the installers. My floors are beautiful and I am very satisfied with the results. I found my own installer, did not use Home Depot installers.

                by|Jul 15, 2019

                  A:  Yes, this is designed for 3/4" nail down tongue and groove solid wood flooring. In my case it was Bruce. Great for changing directions. Worked very nice.

                    A:  This is for standard 3/4 inch hardwood. You need to measure the tongue of your board and make the width double that measurement. these are for a 1/4in. x1/4 in. tongue. Since it will be filling two boards grooves it has to be 1/2 in. wide. 1/4 in +1/4 in=1/2 in. Anyone who orders something that list the size in the name of the product but doesn't check to see if it's the size they need should not be doing the work. Since a simple tape measure could have prevented all your frustrations.

                      A:  This is used with 3/4" T&G wood flooring. You can measure your groove, it would need to about 1/4" wide and deep for this to work.

                      A:  Yes I believe there are the ones are used I worked for a three-quarter inch tongue and groove pre-finished Bruce floor

                                              I purchased 5 of these 10-packs for my 3/4" thick hard wood install so that I could reverse the direction of the boards in closets and hallways. Unfortunately, this product has very poor quality control. I would say only about 20% of the pack is usable so you definitely will need to buy more than you need and return the rest. The size of the spline is very inconsistent and I have yet to find a piece where the the next board with a groove goes on as well as the original boards. If the size/thickness is not an issue then the piece is usually warped and/or twisted. Very disappointed.

                                              This product is just what I was looking for to add accent to my 1980 Cabinets. I used them between the wooden pulls after painting the wood white and the Spine, painted almond color which is the same color as laminate. I then used knobs on the cabinets. This changed the look entirely. Painting the wood white around counter tops and the cabinets plus almond colored spines, adding a colorful back splash and removing wall paper and painting walls white changed the look at very little cost.
