Customer Questions & Answers

Can you use this to cut subflooring over an oak floor?

I removed the linoleum over the subfloor. Now I'm trying to cut flush with the cabinets. they were placed over the linoleum and subfloor. Will this cut the subfloor or just carpet?
Asked by: TiffanyV
It would not cut wood subfloor, as it's only a razor blade that's in the tool. The tool is specifically designed to insert carpet into it, and then have the tool pushed or pulled along the wall tight, cutting the carpet at the perfect length that allows it to tuck down nicely against the wall, between the tack strip and wall. Buy a Multi-Tool, for cutting the subfloor flush against the cabinet. A Multi-Tool made by many companies, is an incredibly useful tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use, Sturdy Product! Very sturdy construction. Easy to use and adjust. Makes life as a carpet installer much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool, instructions need rewording. This tool worked great for the carpet laying but the instructions did not explain how to set the blades at the proper depth and didn't explain that the blades need to go in one certain way. The tool did a great job, exactly what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT, a joy to use, no more accidents with just a knife When laying carpet I've used just a utility knife to cut it at the walls, but that's not precise and so doesn't allow for a nice uniform tuck between the wall and the tack strip, but this tool does and works great, and though I don't lay carpet very often, I wish I would have bought this years ago…. Oh, at first I believe the blade placement was confusing, but it's preloaded and I think I went online to see a video about this tool, then it all made perfect sense, leaving me wondering why it didn't initially….

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carpet trimmer made quick work of edging the carpet This carpet trimmer worked great. It was necessary to adjust the depth to allow for the thickness of the carpet, but once that was dialed in you simply pressed against the baseboard and trimmed the carpet. You need to make sure to change blades often as it will make cutting much easier.
