My height adjustment collar does not appear to be removable, is made of smaller piping than the collar in the instructions, and I do not have the flat ring of holes that goes around it.

The installation instructions below represent the use of Schluter(r)-KERDI-LINE in floor applications. Installation instructions for the use of KERDI-LINE in shower applications can be found in the Schluter®-Shower System Installation Handbook.

Preparation

For installation adjacent to the wall, the channel body must be aligned in accordance with the thickness of the wall covering. For intermediate installation, use the supplied filling strip with peel-and-stick adhesive layer to make the channel support symmetrical.

Yep, I’m a mud man. I’ve been building showers and all sorts of things out of cement mortar for over three decades now. Nothing like mud. It’s so permanent. I’ve run onto another method for building showers, though, that rivals the mud method. I like it so much, in fact, that I’ve been employing it with ever increasing frequency.
