Should uniclic flooring be nailed
 
I just purchased uniclic bamboo flooring from Costco. I understand that a sub layer should be placed down first and subsequently the flooring. Wanted to know whether the planks should also be nailed to the plywood floor.

what does the manufacturer recommend?

No never nail or staple a click floor. Its click for a reason and not solid tounge and groove

Any flooring manufacturer that has a product worth installing will have a proper installation sheet contained in every carton of material, or online, typically both. Always, and I mean ALWAYS go to the manufacturers website and study the product installation file for your information, as well as any other relevant files. It doesn't matter what any of us say since we aren't going to be responsible for the warranty on your product. Always consult the source of the product (and I don't mean the store where you bought it) for the proper installation, maintenance, surface prep, adhesives, substrate requirements, etc.
