Hello all,

I was trying to find the product that a Crucian man invented that sets tile easily and quickly. Does anyone remember (just a few years ago) what the name of the product is and where you can buy it? I think he started by selling on QVC or something similar??? He was kind of a celebrity for a while and was on the news and in the paper with his invention. Thanks for the help.

DL,

Thank you for the lead. I did a search for it, but obviously not well enough as you found the article and I didn't.
That is exactly what I was looking for and it is only $40 now!

I don't know why anyone still uses the little plastic spacers to set tile.

Teresa and DL -

I missed this thread the first time around - wondering how many others did, too.......that is just about the coolest thing I've seen in a while. I've been wanting to lay some tile for some time now.......wow. Has anyone used this, and is it as easy as it appears? (I know, I know, nothing is ever as easy as it appears!) I would assume as long as you are plumb that it would go very quickly? Any feedback is appreciated.

I saw a promo video (and an example of tile laid using said gizmo) at the Hardware store in Sunny Isle about 18 months ago?!?
It looked so simple and quick. I thought to myself...I must get one of those...but then my gaze wasdrawn by some shiny object and oops there the thought went.
I am so glad that you reminded me - I am going to try and get oneas I have plenty of tiling to do.
