# of concrete screws to install laminate MPR

Post by davemikewalker » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:29 am

Hello

I am installing a flooring transition piece called a Multi-Purpose Reducer, MPR, on a basement concrete floor between a laminate floor and a vinyl sheet. There is a metal holder that will be 6' long into which you insert the MPR. There are 17 holes to attach to the concrete.
What is a good number of Tapcon 3/16 x 1 1/4 concrete anchors to use?
Other recommendations?

Thanks for all the great videos!

I would place a fastener in every second hole. No real tips here ,drill the holes and insert the screws.

Actually I do have a tip, be sure the head of the fastener is not to tall and does not inter fear with the spline on the transition piece when it is inserted into the track
