Rated 1 out of 5Â by Adam PIECE OF JUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don"t waste your money on this thing. The only piece in this kit thats worth anything is the driving bar. The wedges don't work and the wall spacers won't stay in place. I suggest just buying some lumber and cutting 1/4 in. spacers and finding a driving bar seperatly. Home depot should really consider taking this item out of there stores.

I would not suggest you buy this. It really is a waste of money.

Like the other reviewers I found that the items in the kit were not helpful and the pry bar could damage the flooring. I bought the kit, because it was my first time to install laminate flooring and thought that the kit would improve my chances of success.
I would recommend to others that they purchase spacers separately and invest in a rubber mallet.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I found that the pull bar easily chips the laminate no matter how carefully I used it.
I quit using the pull bar almost immediately and just used a rubber mallet to tap pieces in. I only used the pull bar along the wall where I had no choice and the chips would be covered by molding.
The worst part was discovering a crack from the pull bar on the edge of one piece of flooring after I had finished 500 sq. ft., if I had left that piece in, it would have eventually chipped off, so I was forced to take up a dozen or so boards to replace the damaged piece.
After a few rows, I quit using anything in this kit. Worthless and actually caused extra work.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by GrumpyPro Shims were worthless
We used the installation bar only. It worked fine.
