False Tread Kit - Installation Instructions

1. Cut a 45 degree miter on all false risers for the open side of the stair to match up with miter on stringer skirt board. Fit and install mitered false risers to mitered skirt board using glue and finish nails.
2. Place the false treads on the open side of the stair and mark the length needed from the face of one false riser to the face of the next false riser.
