Installing snap together floor tiles is a simple procedure that almost anyone can do. Follow these simple instructions to lay your new flooring like a professional. Since no adhesives are required, this installation should be relatively quick and easy. For wall-to-wall installations of snap together flooring, you may discover that you need to cut your tiles to fit. If you find that to be the case, we recommend that you use a table saw. We also suggest that you keep a lubricating spray oil on hand to use on your blade. This will keep it from getting hot and melting the plastic tray of your tiles. You will want to be sure to spray directly on the blade and not on the tiles.
The panels have 2 sides with female loops, and 2 sides with male pegs.
Start by laying your first floor tile in any corner of the room, up next to the wall. Commonly start in a corner of your room that shares the two longest straight walls and away from any door openings. The loops should be pointed in the direction you want to add tiles, so in this case the loops are facing outwards in two directions.
Place the next panel so that the pegs line up over the loops.
Gently step on each panel. You will hear and feel it snap into place. Repeat these steps until your flooring is complete. That’s all there is to it!
All tiles on any given installation should ALWAYS HAVE THE FEMALE LOOPS GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION.
The first time the tiles are assembled, please be sure to assemble the tiles on a hard flat surface. Do not attempt to assemble the tiles for the first time over carpeting. Never hammer the tiles together. Using a hammer can result in tile deformation, which would not be covered by the tile warranty. When the tiles are aligned properly and on a firm, hard flat surface, only a firm stepping motion is needed to secure the tiles together.
CAUTION: If you inadvertently rotate a tile 90 degrees it will snap into place but you will not be able to complete the installation properly.
