Installation tools

We have listed the most common tools for carpet installation.

Turning tool

The carpet turning tool is great for tucking carpets under the door bar. The angled leg of the tool ensures that the installers knuckles is not rubbing the carpet. The turning tool can also be used for light stretching of carpets in awkward places.

Seam roller

The seam roller ensures a perfect transition between two carpet seams. Moving the roller both forwards and backwards will mix the carpet fibers and pull the seam edges closer together.

Knee kicker

The knee kicker eases the adjustment of carpets. It is adjustable depending on the thickness of the carpet. Power rods in the pin plate provide support and better force transfer to the carpet.

Loop pile cutter

The pile cutter is excellent at protecting the material underneath while making a straight and seamless cut in the carpet. Its height can be adjusted to match the individual carpet.

Utility knife

The utility knife is great for adjusting carpet edges. It has a great grip for adding pulling power when cutting tougher carpets or longer lengths.

Seaming iron

A seaming iron is used to merge two carpet seams. The low profile of the iron makes it easy to operate.
