Customer Questions & Answers

can anything else be used as a tapping block?

Asked by: Me
Mostly, no tapping is needed -- You should not have to force the Allure Ultra planks together. When they are aligned properly, they fall right into place and seal without any gap. The only place I needed to tap was where a plank was partially trapped under a door jam and could not be raised up. I used a scrap piece of the flooring.

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.

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.

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
