Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by macinlover You'd better pick up some suitable nails, if you expect to attach this strip to concrete
The strips come with attachment nails, but they will NOT! go into concrete. I tried many times, only to end up with a bent nail, in every case. I ended up using epoxy to glue the strips to the concrete, which makes a strong bond, but I'll probably have trouble ever removing them, should I ever need to.

The tack portion of this product is fine but the nails are junk if you have aged concrete. If your slab is older, buy a bag of Roberts nails and pull the nails out of the strip. You can get better product from carpet stores but they usually only sell by the case.

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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John 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
