Perimeter Tabs

I read the instructions and it says to always cut the tabs on the perimeter tiles. I assume that means the tabs nearest to the wall but does it mean to cut the two other edges as well so that there is only the tabs left opposite those nearest the to the wall.

The only time you will need to cut the tabs is when a full tile runs adjacent with the wall ,in this case you will cut only the tabs up against the wall. Thank you

Let's assume I started laying tile in the center of my room and I will end up with a half tile all the way around my perimeter. Obviously I cut the wall side tabs off when I trim my tile to fit.

How though am I supposed to install the last tile in the corner of the room if it still has (2) sides with tabs on it? The instructions say to tilt the tiles aginst the walls in with a rubber coated prybar to make them snap in. How can I do that if there two rows of tabs in opposing planes and I am against a wall on the other two sides?
Am I missing something? Thanks!

You will need to lay the tile flat,then use a rubber coated prybar to snap the tile towards you then also use the prybar on the opposing plane. please feel free to give me a call (402)-709-8432 or toll free 1-866-416-7627 thanks Joe Fuller
