Just Measure, Cut, and Glue - The ReadyStepTM is as easy as 1...2...3!


    1. Measure the depth of the existing tread and add 1” to accommodate for the gap where the riser will be applied (under the nosing). Cut to width (with the grain).
    2. Measure the width of the existing stair tread and cut the Ready Step to length.
    3. Apply adhesive to the existing tread. Use double sided tape or a mechanical fastener to hold it in place while the adhesive cures. Press the cut Ready Step into place making sure that all corners are to the back of the riser.
