      if youre worried about a warranty on a 12×12 piece of carpet, it must be
      pretty nice carpet that costed enough to tell me you wont be installing it

      +Jason Ramon power stretchers can rip carpet, thats why alot of veteran
      installers stick with the kicker

      +frankbradshaw1770 Generally speaking, the majority of people learning how
      to install carpet from youtube videos wont be doing it for 65 years. The
      same people probably wont be doing a big enough area to want to deal with
      obtaining a power stretcher. And to the guy who has an injury from watching
      this, you wouldn’t be so fat if you got some exercise once in a while.


    You made that look easy. Thanks for the video, now my son and I have some
    work to do

    I should have watched this before I went to the store to buy the carpet!
    Very informative.

    a kicker is a positioning tool…. a stretching device is required for all
    carpet installation, this method is incorrect.


    any licensed installer can use their own method for their installations if
    this method voids the manufacturer’s warranty the licensed installer will
    be responsible for the replacement if the carpet needs to be replaced
    that’s why you choose professionals over non-professionals. no installer in
    their right mind Would Knee kick a room bigger than 12 feet by 12 feet.
    this is one of the better video’s I have seen good job.
