Mounting Click’n Tile is actually easier than wallpapering. But if you are still in doubt, we have created the following instructions, complete with a video guide, to ensure you get the absolute best result.

If you need help setting up the mounting plate, please contact us and we will find a solution.
Installation of the mounting plate
The result is best if the bottom layer, on which the mounting plate is glued, is strong. Therefore, before you start gluing, please ensure that the surface is bearing, which means that it does not rub off and that there are no loose elements. If the plaster or putty rubs off, you must apply plaster primer before starting – which is a type of liquid glue.
Start by measuring the wall both horizontally and vertically with a spirit level or 3D laser.
Apply the adhesive glue with a paint roller or a spatula. Make sure the glue is evenly distributed on the wall. You can move the mounting plates around for approx. 30 minutes before the glue starts to set. Cleaning the spatula is very easy. Simply allow the glue to dry and when it is dry it can simply be pulled off. (You can view this in our how-to- film).
Start mounting the mounting plate at the top of the wall and work your way down the mounting plate. It is important that there are no air bubbles between the wall and the mounting plate.
Take your time to mount the first plate and make sure it is level both horizontally and vertically.
If the mounting plate is above a kitchen countertop, make sure the tiles sit about 0.5 mm above the countertop.
Once in place, make sure that it is kept in place on the wall with your hands.
When the first plate is mounted, it is so much easier to use the next plates on the same level. It is important to ensure that the next plate is also level. This is done by placing tiles on both sides of the two mounting plates (one tile at the top and one tile at the bottom). This ensures the correct distance between the mounting plates.
Once the mounting plate is mounted, you can mount the tiles. The advantage of doing this before the glue is dry is that you then have the opportunity to make minor adjustments to the mounting plate.
From start to finish
In the attached video you can see our how-to-do the mounting.

Removing a tile is so easy. You can always remove all tiles using the vacuum cup by simply placing it in the centre of the tiles, twisting the black handle and gently pulling it off yourself.
Adapting the tiles
If you have an area that requires tile alignment, start by mounting the tiles in the centre and then work your way out. If the tiles need to be customized, they can be cut with a fine saw. A circular saw can also be used. The perfect result is then achieved by sandpapering the edges of the tiles, so they become as smooth as possible.
End of the wall.
If you are not satisfied with the edges of the tiles, you have the option of installing an end-profile, available in brass or stainless steel. This end-profile must be mounted whilst gluing the mounting plate, as the ‘flap’ must be glued between the wall and the mounting plate.
