Answer: 
Hi Peggy,
If HD is contracting out your floor job to a professional you should not have to purchase an installation kit. If the contractor doesn't have his own tools for the job, request one who does, he/she obviously doesn't install enough floors to warrant special tools.

Remember, the tapping block is only used to tap the plank into it's final locking position.

The tapping block in the Rogers Kit will work with any tap lock flooring system.
The Quick Step system is almost identical to what I had on the Purgo Floor.
Remember, the tapping block is only used to tap the plank into it's final locking position.
You will push the locking tab into position at about a 45 degree angle. You will gently tap the outer edge of the plank while exerting very light downward pressure on the plank until the "lock" gently falls into place and the planks lay down flat side by side. Practice this a few times with a scrap piece until you get the feel of it. Shouldn't take more than two or three tries to see exactly how easy it works.
Then use your newly developed technique consistently through the entire job.
You never strike the edge with any force. The tapping block will simply distribute the energy of the tapping across a long area to prevent "mushrooming" the lock tab.
If it doesn't tap in fairly easy, take it back out and clean the groove out with a cloth or very soft small brush. NEVER get rough on it. It will tap and lock with very little effort.

It depends on the bathroom. It would be okay in a half bath were moisture is limited. But its not a good idea for a full bath as the moisture will cause the laminate to swell.

Answer: 
Not really. You CAN use it, but if it's a high traffic bathroom with a tub/shower, you will begin to see the edges of any laminate flooring begin to curl up after frequent wetting. Even with the application of glue to the edges, it wears, then the edges start to lift. If it's a "half bath", you should be fine.

There really isn't anything in this kit that I would recommend using. If you need shims, they have blocks of wooden shims in various locations around the store. There should be a box of them in the Lumber Dept, they will likely be in the Cabinet Dept, too. Further, the wooden shims are a staple I always have in my toolbox. I use them for lots of projects.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Each spacer is 1/4" wide at its widest point, and by placing two or more spacers together it is possible to adjust the amount of expansion space up to 9/16" by simply adding another spacer. The spacers have “serrated” edges that lock them into the correct position once a board is placed against them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 175 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Laminate Installation Kit Has needed tools to install laminate flooring, but the tapping block did not hold up well, The edges of the device split half way through installation of 400 square feet. Especially helpful and useful was the pull tool used to get the boards next to the wall tapped into place. Would consider buying the kit for that tool alone! My only negative aspect for the kit is that you have to order it on line. It is not sold in the store. Price was reasonable. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap Block doesn't have a lip on it to help hold it in place above the lip of he flooring witch in turn makes it hard to use. The long reach bar bends very easily when you hit it with a hammer, mine is now bent up from straighten it July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good For the price it's a great deal. We only needed a pull bar so we got this. Ended up using the block too. It all came in handy at some point of the project. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy for the job A must needed kit for laying laminate flooring. Works great. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by necessary purchase for installing laminate flooring the installation kit was easy to use & helped to keep flooring in place while installing, instructions were easy to understand. July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of junk If you buy this product, the first thing you will need to do is tape up the crow bar. The padding that is supposed to be on it is either missing or fell off in the box. If you don't tape it, you will scratch the c rap* out of your floor. I bought 3 of these for my floor job and they all had the same issue. Also, the bar bends so easy, I spent most of my time bending it back in place before I finally chucked this thing and just made my own. It's $20 so you get what you pay for but this thing is a joke. It simply does not help out. June 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wasn't helpful I didn't like this kit at all. Spacers don't work very well at all. The bar Didn't fit between the wood and wall once it got close and I had to use other tool to move it. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok but could have done without This was handy but nothing that couldn't have been done with shims. A 6-inch 2x4 and a pull bar. The spacers are short and slipped under the drywall. I had to screw them in place (trim will cover the holes). A shim, because of length, would have done the job without that step June 29, 2016
