    I note you use tile spacers as well as the clips. Does this mean for example you can you a 2mm clip and a 3mm spacer ?

    Which ones ? The floor or wall or both? Do you use spacers also

    Yes. I use the 1mm clips.

    I have a theory that they snap better which I have no proof of whatsoever.

    If you use a 1mm clip and a 2or3 mm spacer the theory is you have less chance of the tile chipping when you remove the clips because their is clearance between clip and tile.

    That was my theory but untested as I’ve only ever used the smaller clips (1mm or 1.5mm) and added a spacer. Also makes it less of a problem if you have a small amount of adhesive round the clip IMO

    I agree, always find it better when I use separate spacers with the leveling clips!

    20181109_100347.jpg Just got this . I have to tile a floor with electric ufh that levelled over yesterday and there is no room in the hallway so thought this would be good to give an extra level of protection to the ufh whilst cutting in there
