click laminate under overhangs


I need to lay the laminate on the floor under a 2 inch over hang from the bottom of the counter. How do I snap together and get in underneath the overhang???

What brand? and if this a bathroom, not a great idea to use that stuff, some of them are nothing more than crap, sorry for being so honest.

A 1/4" gap is usually necessary at the face of the toe-kick and this 1/4" of lee-way is what is going to allow you to still be able tohinge and snap the piece into place.

yes, it is a 2 inch overhang on the bottom of the counter in the kitchen. I don't know about the 1/4 inch gap it still won't allow me to snap the laminate into place

It's beginning to sound as if quarter-round or shoe-mold may be in order in addition to a wider gap at the toekick.
