    Default No Blob setting allowed

But, of those I've looked into, they require moderately deep thinset coverage, which is not unusual for a bigger tile (and the ones these things work best for and are recommended for).
    The curve requires the tile to be max out on most thin-set max thickness range (1/4") - I've used them and you can see the curved clip push the tile back up once it's tapped into position.

    The TCNA and TTMAC require 100% coverage on all edges and corners.

    Look at these horrible install. Notice the blob setting.

    With clips in the way I see now way to achieve this.

    The job I set with the Raimondi System was a wall tile installation. With micro tile - super thin 1/4". The tile was utter crap. All over the map.

    The clips did help set this shower but grout prep after was a good three hours.

    Forcing tile to stay put is one thing. Forcing tile to bend while setting is another.

    Just wait. Soon Come. Indent Fractures looming.

    When using a product like these clips a self curing rapid setting thin-set might be the safest call. This way the thin-set can quickly set up taking the strain off the clip or lashing system.
