Looking for an adjustable slope tool

for creating the 1/4" slope per foot. I use the kerdi system, but mud the slope verse using pre-fab slopes. Any ideas or tools suggested?

Thanks

Tom

Thanks, I've seen the video. Thier preslope shower is made for a 3' x 3' shower. Most my shower installs are 3 x 5 or bigger, hence I prefer not to thier preslope kit. So what im looking for.......

a tool called the "spider", I believe,. It fits in a shower and can expand to its deminsions to achieve the the 1/4" per foot slope. Just lay it out, dump the mud and trowel, its that easy. Have you seen or heard of such a tool? I saw it once on the web and can not find again.

Thanks,

Tom
