Installing American Forest Flush Mount Stairnose With a Floating Floor
 
When using a flush mount Stairnose, start the installation by installing shims.  The first shim should be placed flush with the front edge of the riser.  Secure the shim by either nailing or gluing it down.  Install a second shim directly against the first shim and secure it in place.  If properly installed, it should extend under the edge of the floating floor.  The shim provides a foundation for the Stairnose molding and serves to stabilize the floor from compressing under weight.  Install the pad with the edge of the pad placed directly against the shim.  Lay the Stairnose molding in place.  To attach the molding, apply one or two 1/4 inch beads of construction adhesive to the shim and seat the molding in place.  To assure a smooth, flush surface, it is recommended that you apply blue tape (Scotch 3M #2090) to the molding and floor to hold the Stairnose in place until the glue is dry.  An alternative installation method to hold the molding flush with the floor is to route the floor and the molding and insert a "spline" to connect the molding to the floor.  If nailing, pre-drill the molding to prevent splitting and nail to the subfloor behind the lip of the molding.
