Use the knee kicker to tap the straight edge of your carpet onto the smooth edge. When using the knee kicker, centre your shoulder above your hand to give you maximum impact. This also ensures you don’t slip and pull your carpet out. Use the carpet tucker to push the carpet further onto the smooth edge.
Attach the carpet about a quarter of the way across the room. Then go to the same point on the opposite side of the room and work your way towards the corner to stretch the carpet across.
