Slippery clawfoot tub feet
Put your feet on these
I received this email from a visitor recently:
I am wondering if I have to worry about my acrylic tub moving on the tile floor. We have two children who can be a little rowdy, so I’m worried that they will jar it and damage the plumbing. Is there protocall for installation to prevent sliding?
Here is my response:
I would take care of it if I were you, only because if the tub moves too much it could shake the pipe fittings loose.
On some tubs the clawed feet are drilled for anchors into the floor and I’ve seen others run a metal band across 2 or more of the feet and drill the ends into the floor to keep the tub stationary.
I’d recommend something cheaper as an experiment though.
I’d try these and send the one back that doesn’t work as well. If the slip stick gripper isn’t your color just paint them.. for $7 that’s a quick and easy solution.
Let me know what you end up doing.
I’ve not heard back from him yet but when I do I will be sure to let you know the outcome.
