Questions & Answers

can anything else be used as a tapping block?

Asked by: Me
Probably, but this block has a profile that prevents damage to plank edges. It would be an under taking to duplicate as you would need to reinvent the profile. I recommend the block very strongly.

Does this work with other brands of flooring?

Asked by: Abba
I believe it will. I am going to use my tapping block on a different flooring material and I am confident it will work great.

Makes getting the joints tight so much easier. Use a rubber mallet to hit with just incase you miss and you won't damage the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tool you definely need for DIY Allure Untra floor installation Its a bit pricey, but a necessary tool for the TrafficMASTER Allure Ultra floor installation. You need to connect the planks to each other and they can slip slightly as you go down the room laying them. This tool has a custom facing which lets you tap the planks back into each other. Without this tool you are likely to smash and distort the grooves as you tap them with a mallet or block of wood. It can be tiring to go down the room laying planks and this tool assures you don't get too sloppy. I don't know why TrafficMASTER just doesn't provide the tool with an order of planks? In any case, if you are doing the floor its cheap insurance for a job done right

I am laying vinyl plank flooring and this product has been invaluable in getting the planks to tie in together snugly. With the block's recessed edges it prevents you from messing up the edges of the planks. I certainly could not have done the job well without this sturdy tapping block.

It should really be included with the purchase as it guarantees a well laid floor with no seams showing. Easy to use, held up well under pounding using a rubber hammer. Please consider this when purchasing your flooring.

This tapping block made installation a breeze without causing any damage to the floor! Definitely worth the purchase price and will be using it for future flooring projects down the road!

Beautiful piece of work that does not install the boards without damage. It scraped the boards because it wouldn't stay on the board properly. A simple board with a notch would work better. Poor design.

This was used to install approximately 300 sf of the Allure Ultra Wide Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. I purchased this along with the rubber mallet. It was invaluable in helping to tap together both the short and long edge joints so they were snug.
