    The LASH clips are not flat so binned what ever I had. Loads of posts regarding levelling systems; well worth research. Anyhow, as above ^

    How do you calculate how many clips etc you need for the raimondo system?

    Thanks for the pic, and to clarify, for a 600 x 300mm tile i would require 22,per square metre?

    Are they reusable i.e can be used to do the floor then reused on the wall?

    I like the idea that u only need 1 strap per 4 corners that means less handling of clips and less clips so in theory should be a faster system to use but ill wait and see

    I still reckon 4 rls will be quicker and also consider the re use caps you will have to unwind caps of threads

    I've bin asking around to see if I can borrow a torque wrench to see what nm of force it takes to twist one till it snaps coz the feel super strong .
    I've also just got some raimondi 3D clips so I'm gonna do a comparison of block level raimondi 3D and the spin'arooos

    Yes, I remember the pain in my hands. To finished work.
    And chaos, to unscrew all the pins.
    the day after.
    Were a free test. The pain was bearable. ;)

    Noooo,
    Just one example, 60x60 tile. to get to spin the wheel,
    It was always necessary to lean with another hand to the tile.
    Like marc @3_fall@3_fall , with that pliers. mlt tipe old weber ;)
    Which must be kept upright.

    Three systems I've used extensively
    PLM perfect level master straps are good strong very few snap when installing the wedges they have a new longer strap for 20mm stone straps come in 1mm 2mm and 3mm
    Mustang similar system to the PLM as in its a wedge style system again very good can just about cope with 20mm stone
    MLT is the engineered system all parts are reusable you only loose the clip that goes under the tile so the straps can be used many times, this is a Rachet down system takes a bit of practice to get used to using and set up is time consuming so not really for the meter munchers.
    it comes as a kit where you clip the straps to the feet which sits under the tile fit the next tile then rachet down the cap and lock off with the gun. make sure the straps are properly bedded into the clip though as you can pull them through if you apply to much pressure.
    the cap also comes with a little stainless steel plate that you can add to the top of the cap this gives a more positive rachet action and worth the extra expense, they also do a rubber boot that fits to the bottom of the cap for delicate materials although i haven't seen the need as yet to use so would say an optional extra but points for trying to cover every angle! MLT is very popular in the USA with strong sales and a very good delivery system there here in UK no one is a direct seller and you have to order from Italy but very good is sent within 3 days so not bad..
    MLT is the most expensive to first buy but should pay for itself over time as its reusable
    we install stone mostly and i would say that on highly polished or lacquered stone neither the PLM or The Mustang are suitable as they leave scratches which is not good a racket down system is the best one to use for polished stone

    Waiting for a delivery of 4000 mustang clips and wedges. Been using the Rubi quick system and buying direct from CTD but expensive especially in the 80 metre 1200x200mm plank floor I am doing just now! Rubi quick system is good tho!
