How to Install

Dry fit and cut the Shower Bead to length. Spray the bead with Trim-Tex 847 Spray Adhesive. Immediately apply to the drywall. Once in position, press the legs into place. Staple the mud leg every 6"-8" with ½" staples. Finish the installation by mudding and sanding the bead. Now remove the tear-off strip for a clean finished edge.

Caulking: To prevent moisture intrusion, caulk the gap between the Shower Bead and the shower/bath unit. For additional protection, lay a bead of caulk onto the shower/tub flange and embed the support leg of the Shower Bead in it as shown. 

Advantages of Shower Bead


  • Shower Bead uses less drywall compound than filling the gap.
  • No messy drywall compound on the shower surround, the tear-off strip protects it.
  • No paper tape needed, which means eliminating a source of mold growth.
  • No screws needed. The extra long mud leg can span the gap between the drywall and shower flange, and is installed with staples.
