Notice

Just got a phone call from Mick saying he was concerned that some of you might think he's snubbing you or the forums by not responding to questions or comments you have about the product.

Not so!

Mick is currently bound by contract not to discuss the TLS publicly. Just can't do it at all. Not sure I fully understand the deal, but I do understand that's the way it's gotta be until October 7 of this year.

Mick just wants you to know he's still out there and still working on new and better products for the industry and asks that y'all be a little patient with him.

I think we can do that.

What contract forbids him from discussing anything on the forums?

I'm just curious!

Sounds like a
Schluter style contract. Maybe if Mick became a little birdie.......

Anyone see any problems with just leaving the straps in a bucket of water so that they're always ready when you need em?

Kinda sucks about Mick. Does that mean we can't call him anymore as well?

I've done exactly that a couple times. Not intentionaly, I just put to many in water and since they were already soaked I just left them in there.
Used them a few days later and some of them seemed a little weak (snapped easier?) could have just been my imagination though

Heres some shots from today.
2' x 2' polished porcelain tile. Less than $2.50 a square foot, doesnt that seem a little cheap??
It's a Rona brand tile, so maybe that has something to do with it..
Nice product though, the tiles are pretty darn flat and square for a tile at that price

I used a couple extra straps, just because I didn't want one to snap at an in-opportune time..

TLS......once the straps have been soaked, they do not need to be soaked again. 1 exception......... if the strap have been frozen, then they need to be re-soaked.

Storing them in water isn't necessary but doesn't hurt anything til you turn the bucket over in your trailer.

Sounds like Mick has sold his invention and is bound by a no compete/non competition contract with the obligatory "gag" order. If thats the case, I hope he made a boatload, he deserves it.

That's what I think, too. My guess is it'll be under the Custom/Superior umbrella. TLS would sell like hotcakes out of a place like HD, I suspect.

Well whatever the case I wish you the best Mick, don't see tilesetters doing nothing but mostly struggling with getting paid for everything we bring to the table. Mostly just look to put something on the table. I hope you got the worth you deserve.
