    So annoying, I dropped it and don't really want to go back to b and q.
    It is a small shed, I have a good concrete base and want slabs so that I can level up with mortar before laying the bearers.

    If ia push it together (now in four parts) canI use it withthe others?

    Best to all.

    Can you lay it in the middle somewhere where there’s not a point load on it?

    No 23vc, only four 600 x 600 slabs, just a small shed, so one will have to go in the corner.
    What do you think, shall I go and get another?

    Put it at the back, out of sight. If it troubles you later you could tilt that shed with one hand and replace it with the other!

    Kind of you. I know its a bit naughty to change the subject, but do the bearers just get laid down, or must they be secured?

    While you are on. Many thanks
