For dancing on the wood floors in the East
Valley, please use GLUE-ON style taps and install using a GOOP
product (may be purchased at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware). Any
type of goop will work (household, marine, etc.), they are all the
It’s best to buy NON-Nail on
(GLUE-ON) taps if you are going to be dancing on wood floors.
The burrs around the nail holes are known to scratch wood floors
(not necessarily the nails themselves).
INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLING
TAPS using goop:
Wipe tap and sole of shoe clean. It’s a good idea to scratch
up the shiny underside of the taps with steel wool or sand paper to
make the glue adher better.
Lay tap in desired place on shoe and outline with pencil. Press one
of the adhesive dots onto the underside of each rivet hole (to keep
adhesive out of rivet). Or, you can use little bits of masking tape
to cover the inside of the rivets.
It’s a good idea to help fill up the gap between the sole and the
underside of the tap with two-sided tape. You can use Fast-Ons.
They may be purchased at Stevens Worldwide (web address given
above). If you are using Fast-Ons, apply glue to both sides of them
(be sure to remove the protective paper first). If you are not
using Fast-Ons, you will need lots of goop to fill up the gap
between the sole of the shoe and the underside of the tap.
Apply adhesive to inside of pencil marks on the bottom of the sole.
Also apply goop to the underside of the tap.
Press taps into place and hold taps in place with masking tape until
adhesive dries (usually best to wait one day).
Write your NAME and PHONE NUMBER on the underside of both shoes.
