    I have a suggestion for you guys, having installed this flooring throughout my home and my fathers, and getting ready to do a friends. Instead of the normal rubber block to put against the tile and hammer the tile into place, it would be smart of you guys to have a rubber block that goes on the corner sitting on both sides, with a flat corner on it so that when you install the pieces and use your rubber mallet, both sides would go in at the same time. Would save alot of time and also adjustments as well. I have one that I paid to get made out of rubber and it works great. cuts install time in half.

    What a great idea! What type of rubber did you use to make the block?

    I don't know the type of rubber, but what I used was a 4x4x1 hard rubber block used in jewelry applications. I cut the block so that it set centered on both sides of the tile then I cut off the back corner to make a flat surface to hit with the rubber hammer, and it works great. You tap that corner and it sets both sides in perfectly.
