Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NickyRicky Laminate install kit
The metal slide tapper bends easily so I needed to manipulate it every so often, you're going to expect it to damage the edges of the board so be careful to use on edges to be covered by trim,
Prepare to shave the tapping block after a while, it will look like it's falling apart but after you shave down the frayed spots you're good to go
Consider getting the better made slide tapper and tapping block on its own, usually found further down the aisle from this item

We needed to close the gaps length wise in our newly installed vinyl plank floors. This was a perfect set of tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle Just what I needed
This kit had everything I needed to install my laminate flooring. It had all the shims, which helped keep everything in place, and it had both the tapping block and the end piece installer. The only problem I ran into is that eventually the end piece installer started to bend from all the hits. I will probably end up getting a more sturdy one for my next installations. Overall, good buy though.

For the most part it worked out well. If you hit is off just a bit you might scuff the floor

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheLandlady Upgrade to the tougher pull bar
Maybe the two of us women were a little hard on the pull bar in the kit - but it bent halfway through the 10'x18' install and began to leave scars on the laminate surface. After the first scar (which was going to be hidden under a cabinet) we stopped and got the larger "industrial" Roberts pull bar and that handled all the pounding nicely. I can't imagine that a stronger person would have much better luck with the pull bar in the kit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jings frustrating
While the floor itself went in pretty easy, this installation kit failed us. The installers got about 1/3 through the first room - 15 x 27 - and the long pieces used to hammer the flooring in place bent almost flat.... both pieces. They were rendered useless.
So, I had to run back to HD to get 2 more. I ended up with the larger ones that even felt more sturdy than the one in the box.
Wish we had known, we'd have just bought those 2 pieces instead of 2 box sets. Lesson learned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY Kit had everything needed
Great product would purchase again for future projects if needed. I read other reviews that stated the tapping bar bends easily and recommended purchasing a better one, so I did. I never had to use the additional bar. The one included in the kit worked great through 800 sqft laminate wood installation and did bend.

Guy at store recommended this instillation kit for my bamboo floor. This made installing so easy. Worked perfect. Really glad he said to buy.
