Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nails do not If you do buy this product, make sure you get a bag of #10 x 5/8 galvanized concrete nails. The nails that come with this board are awful and do not sink into to the concrete. I had to take all the "concrete" nails out and replace them with #10 x 5/8 galvanized concrete nails. April 6, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by If using on concrete, you will need additional concrete nails Works fine as a tack strip but the nails aren't good for concrete. More than half bent and you will need to get real concrete nails to hold strip properly January 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Got The Job Done I don't know that there is much difference between tack strips. This got the job done. The nails were longer so gave me a couple of problems going into the slab. Overall, I was pleased. The only problem areas I had were in doorways where I couldn't get the carpet to always grab like I needed, but that's probably more to do with my experience level doing this stuff. Everywhere I had places to tuck the carpet edge under was fine. July 22, 2014
