Installation Instructions

  1. Read How to Clean and Prepare Your Tub guide.

  2. Lay out your treads or appliques in the tub without taking the adhesive backing off to make sure you have the pattern you want.
  3. Once you're satisfied with your layout, peel the backing off of the first applique.
  4. Eliminate as many air bubbles as possible by pressing firmly starting in the middle and working your way toward the edges. This will ensure consistent contact on the entire surface.
  5. Wait 4 hours (or longer) before getting the treads wet. If possible, we recommend waiting 24 hours.

For removal, please refer to our tutorial on tread removal.
