how to attach Schluter edging

I purchased some Schluter edging for a countertop, and it comes with a flange with some large triangular holes in it. How do I hold this in place until I start the tile work. Staples, roofing nails etc? Of course I need something that wont stick up too high.

thanks

Hi ... just embed it in thinset during your tile install. No fasteners.

Welcome to the forum, Warren.

Unfortunately, the creator of that You Tube topic removed it from the web, so it is no longer available. I was very excited hoping to see it!

the thinset attaches it with the holes and the tile helps hold it in place.

Its better to install them as you set tile but if you can't, then use either roofing nails or pneumatic staples. Be careful not to bend or break the profiles when securing them.

I had a real tricky install once and set the trims vertical on the walls with hot melt glue to tack in place , the struck thinset into the voids with my margin trowel and set the tile.
