Glueless floating floor...HELP!--before I lose my mind!!!!
Sorry the pictures not great but it's the only one I could find that showed what I wanted to show. Anyway, which side (of the picture) is your "first" row, and which is your "second" row?
If the left side is your "first" row, meaning, if you're trying to snap the right side into the left side, it won't work. It's been a while since I've done one so I don't know what the instructions say...and I'm a firm believer in following manufacturer inst., but at the end it won't matter which way you snap it and I've found that trying to get the long bottom leg (on the right side) to "snap" past the subfloor (under the left side tab) is almost impossible.
I would suggest raising the left side slightly, push it in ALL the way, then push down. It should go in like that.
I would also suggest (or at least this is what worked for me) putting an entire linear row together first, making sure to line up the tabs on the long sides very carefully, then snap the entire thing in place. (assuming of course you have the totally non-glue kind, where the ends snap together as well as the long sides. (obviously if your floor is really long, this won't work...I've done it this way for up to about 15 feet, with a couple helpers, with no problems)
