- Surface material: Wear resistant laminate

Fasten the T Mold to the subfloor. Do NOT fasten it to the floorcovering.
Step 1: Install the flooring leaving a 1-1/8” gap between the two floors for the t-molding installation
Step 2: Measure and trim to fit.
Step 3: Center the track between the flooring with 1/4” spacing between the track and floor plank and screw to the subfloor using included screws.
Step 4: Starting at one end, press the molding into the track inching along the length of the molding. It will NOT snap in all at once. You may also use a rubber mallet.
