Stevens Stompers® Buck Taps® may be attached using of various methods.
To NAIL – – or not to NAIL
Nail On, Screw On, or Glue On? Clogging taps have traditionally been nailed onto shoes using shoe tacks. This is still the attachment method of choice for most dancers. Our Nail On design calls for the nails to be inserted on an angle. Properly installed, any nail head that backs out will hit against the outer tap plate and be driven back in while dancing.
Some cloggers like to attach taps themselves using a Screw Kit, purchased separately. The Nail-On style taps are also appropriate for this screw application.
Stevens Stompers® developed a revolutionary Glue On style tap. Glue Ons do not have nail holes and can be installed using a variety of commercially available adhesives. A Fast-On Kit that we sell separately is also available to assist in Glue-On tap attachment. This product contains a pressure sensitive, double sided, foam adhesive, which is particularly effective on the metal surface of the taps. Our Attachment Flyer explains these procedures more fully.
