Ok CX, you were right again. I don't know how much of it did not grab tight but there are definitely a few spots that aren't. I used a tooth pick to guage depth at different spots. All the edges are...

Damn, somewhere on here I read that it should be there to help with moisture plus any squeaky floors in future. Oh well, I do not think I am in the mood to take out all those screws. Also, I read a...
