Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to install good instructions. very easy to install. arrived before estimated time. February 16, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk, pure garbage, don't buy The knocking block got torn up, it is hard to hold and hit the board squarely so it would damage board ends, the pull bar bent after the first 5 strikes, spacers get stuck and damage board ends when removing. Do NOT waste your money on this. Use a 2x4 as a knocking block and flooring scraps as spacers. If you have to get the pull bar, buy 1 for every 5 rows of flooring. Using a dead-blow hammer will help longevity vs. a rubber mallet. Didn't try a sledge as that may have minimized the number of strikes needed. December 31, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money Terrible product. Just installed 350 sq feet of laminate. Although the staff at Home Depot were great in getting me the materials, this "installation kit" was useless after the first 100 feet. First, the spacers were not wide enough and kept falling over. It was much easier to just put a piece of the laminate around the edges of the floor to use as a spacer. The "tapping block" was a piece of layered hard plastic/rubber that you are supposed to use to tap the boards into place. After striking the block the layers of plastic/rubber began to separate resulting in a rounded edge that was of no use for tapping. I ended up having to saw the block several times to keep a flat edge. A cheap 1x2 furring strip worked much better. Last, and worst of all, the metal "pulling bar" bent easily as you hammered it to pull in the ends of the boards where they meet the wall. This resulted in no 90 degree angle to hammer and I had to keep pounding the bar back into shape each time I needed to use it. It was like trying to pull a board into place with a coat hanger rather than a sturdy pull bar. This "kit" is definately a waste of money and made the installation much harder than necessary.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Eh... I just installed 500 sq. feet of laminate flooring, and found there were things I really didn't like about this kit: 1. The spacers have grooves on them. I understand the reasoning in being able to put two together to get a specific depth. However, if you are using a single spacer, it is nigh unto impossible to remove it after use. The flooring pushes it up against the wall, and you end up chipping your flooring if you are not careful enough. 2. The pounding block didn't last. I only did 500 sq. feet, but the pounding block didn't last through the project. It fell apart, and resulted in me damaging the ends of the flooring. 3. The bar isn't strong enough to last the project. As a result of setting flooring, the bar bent out of shape and became unusable. I was able to bend it back in shape, which I had to do after each use. In summary, the product is a good idea, but the quality is not to the level it should be. December 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Purchased this kit prior to installing 475 square feet of 12 mm laminate. The kit has more than enough spacers. It also has a hard rubber block to tap seams together. My issue with this kit is its strength. The included pry bar used for pulling seams together where you cannot swing a hammer is too flimsy. It may be the result of the thicker laminate I bought (12 mm), but halfway through the job, the pry bar was bending and making it increasingly more difficult to use. The rubber block also lost its edges and became rounded over. The kit survived the job and the floor looks great. I suspect that it would have lasted better with a thinner laminate. July 27, 2014
