How not to forget wall ties, any tricks of the trade?

Recommended Posts

I have started laying my first course of inner wall blocks at a level which requires wall ties. For some reason I keep forgetting ties and have to knock a block off to rectify.

 

Can anyone recommend a fool proof reminder method for wall ties?

 

I am now thinking of stacking the blocks dry with a wall tie sandwiched according to a wall tie plan, then as I lift a block off the stack the tie will fall, then surely I won't forget.

Are you using profiles ..?? 

 

Hang them on the string pins above the row you need them in.

I like that and completely idiot proof i.e. have the wall-tie dangling from a second higher profile line such that it will obstruct the laying of the block where it should go.

I hope you are not poking them in after you have laid the blocks ??

if you lay a bed down approx 1.5m to 2m then push the ties down into the bed, you basically don’t pick up a block unless you have picked up the ties

its just a 3 stage process 

bed

ties

block. 

Keep a bucket of ties right next to you

you will be tripping over it so much you will never forget them.
