Forum Title: Stretching carpet with a kicker, mini or crabjack
Nate Hall said: ? Installers who only make carpet look installed by kicking it in. The same guys who are doing jobs for $2.00-$3.00/sq yd effectively driving the price down for ALL of us.

When I worked commercial workroom in the 70's that is how it was done. Many thousands of yards were put in with the mini or crabjack. Funny thing was is there were no call backs for restretches. If done right I think the little guy can get as much stretch as the poles-maybe. Daris

We used to put 4 extra nails in the tack strip where we would stretch, and literally rip the tackless out of the floor, and still go back for a restretch! Give me a power stretcher any day of the week.
