This will work the very bottom edge of the naps across the gap and lock them together. (Photo 33) It may take 5 to 8 seconds of working the edge for the glue to grab; remember, a little bit goes a long way. Practice this part on a 2 -by-4 to get the feel.
Now all that remains is to trim the excess at the floor from the tail and tuck it into the gap of the strip, just like a wall. (Photo 34)
These stairs are not something you run into every day, but there is good money to be made installing them this way. Hopefully this will help you make that money. Photo 35 shows the finished product.
