Each end of the Shampoo & Soap Caddy Shelf is notched to allow it to fit in place without having to cut tile or stone around the ends. This also provides flexibility to form slot and install Shampoo & Soap Caddy Shelf after you complete the walls, freeing you from having to work around the shelf.
Shampoo & Soap Caddy Shelf is designed with a soap dish on both sides. This makes the Shampoo & Soap Caddy Shelf versatile for placement in any corner.
Set wall tile to height shelf is to be located. Install next row of tile around shelf; which will form a 9/16″ slot.
The shelf may then be caulked in place or removed for installation after wall is completed.
If shelf needs to be trimmed, use a wet-saw, 4″ diamond wheel hand grinder, belt sander or table saw with finish carbide blade.
