PostSubject: What is a Carpet Stretcher?   Fri Feb 17, 2017 7:07 pm

Carpet stretchers are simple hand tools that are used in the installation of wall to wall carpeting. The main function of the stretcher is to make sure the carpeting is flat and tight across the surface of the floor, with no wrinkles or folds that would make it unsafe to walk across the carpet. A carpet stretcher is often used in conjunction with other carpet tools to ensure the carpet installation is completed professionally.

The basic design for a carpet stretcher involves a long body that is equipped with one or more rows of teeth along the bottom side of the device. An activation lever makes it possible to use the stretcher to make sure the carpeting is taut before the last side of the carpet is tacked into place. While the length of the stretcher makes the tool somewhat difficult for one person to move around with ease, it is lightweight enough that an individual can move the device into position if necessary.
