I like these $4 suction cups. We used them to lay 1200 sf of 24x24 marble and they worked a little too well.

Talking I'd rather be setting tile...

Hello,

Well I'm back from the electronic wars... I've been having lots of computer related problems of late starting with colour laser printer problems. I finally got those sorted and Ka-Boom, my network router went down. I replaced that today with an Apple Airport Extreme and spent the afternoon reconfiguring all of the computers and printers to work with the new router. Whew! I'd rather be cutting and setting tile...

Hammy: Thanks for the heads up on the suction cups... They look cool and the price is right! I'll take a good look at them tomorrow, since my computers, printers and network are all up and running now. (Fingers crossed that it stays that way.)

Brian: Thanks for the detail photo and the explanation. I really like the look of your accents (or do youze tile blokes call them dots?), they are very elegant. I'm finalizing my powder bath layout now, so I may have to rethink a couple of things... If I don't pinch your design and use it in my powder bath, I'll use it in one of the other rooms we are going to tile. Right now I'm trying to learn a computer layout program, so I can do a wee bit of virtual designing.

Still loving the 254 Platinum...

Paul: I'm going to HF in a couple of days, so I will see if the north location has those suction cups... Thanks!

Steve I've never been to a hf that didn't carry them. Once again though they are actually for pulling dents so they will be in the automotive area

Steve, I liked the NT suction cups over the HF ones due to the way the NT ones had a "T" level to break the suction vs. spliting the handles on the HF ones. Just a personal preference.

Hammy

ps. HF $5.00 ea. NT $20.00 ea Kinda like tile work, you get what you pay for.

Here some pics of the TLS in use with the 310 Laticrete on a ceiling application.
The store is a Luxury Watch shop in Fla, Chris Woolsey and his crew from Floor-n-Decor is the installer Company. He also has an interesting product line that he has exclusive here in the USA, the technique comes from Italy, here the linkhttp://www.cogirusa.com

Mick,

On the ceiling aspect. If you didn't have those straps already up there, I wouldn't be using it. Did you grid it determining where to puttem? And what is holding them, thinset, eposy, glue gun?

Jon, I missed the meaning of your question. The strap goes under the tile ( 1/2 of strap base) dont need anything else to hold it up.

Did I miss something here? Would not me thr firsst time.
