    Quick question!!!! (coping clips)

    I'm pouring cement tomorrow!!! The coping clips that are with the bullnose coping doesn't really snap in to well... Sometimes the just pop off without touching them... Should I figure out how to secure them on before pouring cement? Like maybe add a small screw to them?? Or do you put the coping clips on after the cement??

    try bending them a little to make them "snap" on tighter.

    Mine kept snapping off too. Before they poured the cement, they made sure they were on. Once the cement was poured, it secured them.

    You keep sayin you're gonna post pics. Why wait until it's clear? Show us pics of the build. That's what people really want to see.

    Time to give back a little
