The package says "Quick and Easy"; it's not. Installation requires every hour of a long hot day, lots and lots of expensive PL Premium glue, a rented linoleum roller, and a couple of people with knee-pads. I did a patio installation using the 5.5" wide strips. The product itself looks pretty good after installation; start with the least visible strips as you'll get better as the day wears on. I started slightly stretching (~1" on a 20' length) the strip before nailing the far end after about 10 boards and now they are the best looking strips. Put down 3 or 4 strips at a time and then roll them and the last 6 or 8 strips with the roller. I started with the plastic multi-hole spreader they show in the video (there're in the tile dept), but it broke so I changed to a border bead and a sweeping zig-zag fill which worked better and faster than the spreader. (Skip the spreader!) My fear is that this will come loose during the winter; or break if I drop something on it while it is frozen; we'll see. All-in-all, it looks reasonably good on the patio, but I think I would be better off had I selected a different solution.
