Going to be putting carpet tiles down in the week and the tiles I’m using want carpet tackifier which I have bought, I believe this doesn’t stick them down solid so you can replace tiles.
Will this be a problem with the movement of the feet? If the feet are near a join can that be a problem?
Also do you have the back feet touching the skirting or forward a bit?
Thanks

My experience of carpet tiles with tacifier is that you can get them up with a screwdriver under the edge but they aren't coming up unless you deliberately try lifting them.

Dan is spot on. The tackifier will hold them down but never 100% sets like traditional glue so you can get one up in the future if need be with a fair bit of effort 👍

Thanks guys never used them so that’s good to know.
Being laid this week.
Mine are being laid on a concrete floor and the backs feel smooth so would probably move without being stuck down.
I managed to get a £7 tile for a quid, happy days.
