What is the difference between 2mm and 3mm spacing plates?

The width of the plate’s spacing device which creates the gap between tiles, or the grouting space, is what determines if it is 2 mm or 3 mm.

What is the difference between floor spacing plates and universal spacing plates?

The plate’s spacing device, which creates the gap between tiles, is what determines if it is a floor or a universal spacing plate. The floor spacing plate is designed exclusively for use on floors. The universal spacing plate can be used on both floors and walls. The universal spacing plate’s spacing device is solid and not flexible. When used on a vertical surface, like a wall, it keeps its spacing gap. The floor spacing plate has a patented blade device and is designed to flex and accommodate structural movement. This flexibility is great for floors that may move, but the floor spacing plate’s spacing device is not designed to withstand gravity and the weight of a tile when used on a wall.

Will the screw pierce my waterproof membranes?

No, the screw will not pierce your water proof membranes. The base of all of the spacing plates are solid, and in addition the bottom of the screw is flat.

Can a cordless drill be used to install and remove the spindle?

Yes, we recommend using a cordless drill with voltage no greater than 10.8 volts, its clutch mechanism set to low to prevent any over tightening and a 10mm double hexagon metric socket. An ATR socket bit could also be used. The ATR socket bits are designed to securely fit the ATR spindle.
