If you’re wondering how to remove carpet grippers, either when you’re removing the carpet or moving them around, you’ll need to use pincers or the prong end of a hammerhead to pull up the nails. If you’ve glued down the grippers, you’ll need to be prepared to replace them as they may snap when you pry them up from the subfloor.

Place the carpet stretcher about 25mm from the skirting with its teeth facing downwards. To hook the carpet onto the gripper on both sides of the corner, press the padded end with your knee.

Once you’re happy with the alignment position of the carpet go over the main area using both feet in a shuffling step action to work out any ripple or bumps to the edges, at each corner push the carpet as far as you can into the corner and cut the excess carpet vertically from the corner so that it’s more flexible and easier to push into the corner. To make an informed decision, you should consider the benefits of both DIY and professional carpet installation.

You have the selection, preparation, installation, and maintenance. Fold the carpet over on the side where there is more than 10cm excess and cut the excess down to 100mm (10cm) ready for hooking. Make sure you don’t cut through the carpet underneath that’s already laid on the floor. Adjustable length – Many carpet stretchers will come with adjustable lengths to enable you to fit into those smaller spaces with your tool but also to work in bigger areas and spread the force.
