Best Knee Pads to Wear for Tiling

Postby homer67 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:19 pm

does anyone have any recommendations as to a decent brand of knee pad to wear while tiling? iv used many brands, all claiming to do the job but never seem to offer the cushioning i need as iv had a few knee ops and trying to keep comfortable working on them

Tile/carpet guys use the ProKnees, and I am told they are best for flat surfaces. Not so good for stair work.

I picked up a set of Snap-On branded kneepads, and I like them. Lots of padding, but the kneepad is bulky which sucks on hot days. See below.

I also like the plain old nylon/plastic ones with the Craftsman name. I think they are made by ALTA. Simple catch system and the straps don't dig in too much. Smaller and lighter than the Snap-On ones, but not quite as comfy.

I tried the Occidental Leather kneepads, and I did not like them, even though they are well made. The straps kept coming off.
