Easy & Effective Tread Installation

This applique installation guide applies to a variety of our products. If you are planning to or have already purchsed any of the following products, this guide is for you. If you have purchased our recyclable bathtub treads, then these steps aren't required because they use suction cups rather than adhesive.

Before you proceed with the installation below, ask yourself "Have I already properly cleaned my tub"? If not then read our How to Clean and Prepare Your Tub guide.

Installation Instructions

  1. The first step is to decide how you want them to be laid out. The best way to get your pattern right is to lay out all your treads or appliques on the tub without taking the adhesive backing off. This way you can make sure you have full coverage.
  2. Once you're satisfied with your layout, peal the backing off of the first applique.
  3. 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.
  4. Allow a minimum 4 hours of drying time before you use the shower. If possible, we recommend that you give them a full 24 hours.

If you ever want to remove them, please refer to our tutorial on tread removal.
