About This Product

The Economy Knee Kicker secures carpet during installation and makes it easy to fix loose carpet. This positioning tool is designed for use with low-profile carpet, and features teeth angled forward to help grip and hold the carpet. The teeth are not straight, because this kicker is not intended to pull or stretch carpet to remove wrinkles. The thick foam-filled bumper pad and nonslip, comfort foam grip handle make this knee kicker comfortable to use. It is ideal for small installations, to fix loose carpet, and to use in hallways and closets. Lightweight aluminum and steel construction.

  • Lightweight aluminum and steel construction

              Q:Can this be used to stretch artificial grass/turf?

              Answer This Question

              A:  SURE I CAN SEE THIS EASILY

              by|Jun 23, 2022

                A:  Yes, it works fine to stretch artificial turf.

                by|Jun 25, 2021

                A:  Yes if you mean the thin mat type that comes in rolls like carpet. I used that type inside of a screened in country style porch and I used one of these carpet stretchers to get it tight just be careful because the style of artificial turf I used wore thin quickly in areas that I had stretched it the most.

                by|Jul 30, 2019

                  A:  Thank you for your inquiry. It is unknown if turf is recommended for stretching. However, knee kickers are to help tighten lose areas and fit in areas of wall to wall carpet.(stair ways, perimeters etc) Always contact the turf manufacturer for installation requirements.

                        Economy Knee Kicker
                        I bought this knee kicker because it was the cheapest way for me to stretch the carpets in our upstairs. This save me SO MUCH MONEY! I was able to get the ripples out of our master bedroom, hallway, spare bedroom, my in-law's hallway, and one of their spare bedrooms. I did tear up my knees on the first round of rooms so I'd recommend wearing kneepads - brushing my knees on the carpet is what tore my knees up, it didn't come from this kicker. This saved me so much money because I didn't have to hire a company and I didn't have to buy or rent the more expensive setups. I highly recommend this kicker. The knee pad is very thick, the handle is padded too, and the "grabbers" that grip the carpet do a great job of pulling and holding. I used this for several hours and it was more comfortable than I thought it would be.

                        Better Than It Looks
                        This knee kicker is a good bit beefier than it looks in the photos. Definitely up to small jobs and homeowner repairs. The professional models are considerably more durable and offer adjustability but for the occasional user this is a great product and a great value. I use it as directed, and also with a 54 ounce flooring hammer on walls and ceilings or in close quarters.

                          Easy to use
                          The economy knee kicker is great for fixing those loose carpet problems where you get a wrinkle over time. It is 16 1/2" in length and has a thick pad and foam grip. It is made out of lightweight aluminum and steel construction. It has three nap grips to hold the carpet firmly that look like they would be sharp but are not a problem in handling the kicker.

                          Device is sturdy and worked fine on my particular rug which was similar to an oriental. You have to push down hard on the head to get adequate engagement of the grippers. The kicker was able to move a 10x12 rug with a heavy table and 6 chairs setting on the rug. The design is simple and cheap but lacks adjustability for depth of carpet weave, which I knew when I purchased it.

                          The knee kicker did the job to let me re-stretch the carpet a little back onto the tack strips in my entry way. Easy to use.
