Product needed better discription of the finger at the head of the Carpet Groomer (Hard Plastic), Nothing wrong with this it works well just not what I expected form the stock photo. The more you use it you will find different ways to make it work for you. Works well on area rugs too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 The vacuum bag is not full anymore!
This is Chewbacca (named after the hairy one on Star Wars) who sheds constantly. Chewy makes a hairy mess on the carpet. This carpet rake pulls up the hairy shedding in the carpet which can be put in a grocery bag and disposed of. After picture is only after using the carpet rake and before the vacuum.
It also lifts the nap of the carpet making it easier to vacuum up the ground in dirt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sweetgabrown Great for Pet Hair
We have a shephard/chow mix and higher pile carpet...bad combination. Just as we were considering a $300 vacuum cleaner for pet hair, we stumbled across this as an option. We rake the carpet before vacuuming and even after if you want your carpet to have a just-cleaned look for guests. Does not require a great deal of elbow grease. As easy as sweeping. Hope the pics are good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bike4life61 It works, I like it, only one complaint
The groomer works fine on high-traffic areas of my apartment's plush carpet. It loosens matting, brings embedded dirt to the surface, makes vacuuming efficient and the carpet looks nice afterward. My only complaint, as mentioned by other reviewers, is wishing the tines were sturdier. On the other hand, the flexible tines raise the carpet nap without damaging it. The product is inexpensive so I won't mind replacing them as needed. I wish they were available in stores. Overall, I recommend this tool and will be suggesting it to my neighbor, who has two long-haired cats. In my opinion, people with pets and carpets need this item.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MushroomHunter Pretty Impressed!
I received my rake thru the Seeds Program and am really impressed with the effectiveness and cleaning power. Years ago, I bought something similar with rubber tips that quickly broke off.
We are dealing with a flea problem and I really needed something to get deep into carpets! So, if I could give this product 10 stars, I would. We are flea free again!
I gave this 5 stars because it really works! Try it, you won't be disappointed. Two Dogs, One Cat and a woodstove --- Roberts Carpet Rake is a necessary tool!!!
Upgrade? If this had a smaller head and handle, it would take the "urgh" out of cleaning the carpeted stairs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrWar Works great & especially for the money!
Works amazing. Brings life back to the carpet; looks plush again and feels good on your feet too. The only thing I would have done different if I were to do again, and I would, is buy a wider head. The 12 IN head is nice for those tight spots, but usually you would use this on heavy traffic areas that aren't so tight. SO, I would much rather have an 18 IN at the very least, and would welcome a 24 IN. The handle is great and unscrews off the head, so getting a wider head only would save money and would be easy to swap!! Other than that it is great quality, light weight, easy to use, and surprisingly durable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaureenK Small investment to extend the life of a big investment!
We have a low-pile shag carpet in 5 rooms & master closet. At least three of the rooms have had active traffic for almost three years, and the wear is starting to show in places, particularly entry ways. This rug rake does a wonderful job of bringing the life back to the appearance. It's also a great assist in prepping the carpets for vacuuming, loosening up the trapped dirt and pet hair to maximize the vacuum's performance. I will never be without one of these as long as we have carpets with any pile to them. Carpet is a big investment, why not use something easy to keep it looking new?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulCoMat Works great
I have had carpet rakes before but this one is the best. The long tines do a great job evening out the pile. It is light and easily gets around table & chair legs & up against baseboard molding. A word of caution though- Make sure yours has small pins through the head. You will see 2 small holes along the back edge of the rake. The first one shipped me did not have these and it fell apart in 15 minutes scattering little tines all over the floor. If yours comes without the pins simply pry the sides away from the tine holder and put in a little good quality glue for plastic.
