I've been hesitant to even try to bend these back into place because they appear to be made of multiple parts. It looks like some sort of joint between the wall and floor tile portion near floor on the front of the piece. I worry that any efforts on my part could only make this worse (open a sizable gap, snap off a piece, etc.).

I'm hoping DF has a better fix in mind. If not, I may see about returning mine. These could be really useful, but they're not, to me at least, in this condition.

In my experience, hot water fix is temporary. Plus, with a metal plate in there, I don't want to go around submerging it in water. Wouldn't it get rusty?
Yea good point. I will let you know what they say in response. I can't use them in this condition either.

Mine too, it seems to be happening to everyone. At this point I'm curious if anyone's are NOT like this. After the new KS, hopefully DF will recognize something needs to be done.
Mine were fine.

I do not know if the hot weather effected the tiles with metal plates more than some of the others.

I would adjust them myself.

I feel clamping them for a while would probably be enough. If not , hot water is safer than an oven or hot air gun.

You can send them back for replacement. I have waited long enough already.
Yea well I don't have that clamp and not going to spend money on it just for this:) Sent DF an email and if they recommend it ill try the hot/cold water fix and use a piece of wood or some lego's to try and keep them in place.

Looks like you’ve got yourself a rickety stone bridge!

Thanks for the pic.

Do you have pics? My DoD isn’t here yet but I’d like to get an idea of how bad they should be before being concerned. Thank you.
