Can this be used to stretch artificial grass/turf?

Asked by JackR July 28, 2019

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.

I have never used one of these before. What kind of fastener do they use, and can I get them at ...

This does not have a fastner to it. If you are referring to what holds the carpet it place, there are tack strips at the edge of the carpet that hold it in place. This stretches the carpet past its current position on the tacks so that the carpet becomes more taught. I pushed with the kicker and pressed the carpet down on the tack strips. If the carpet moved enough, you can feel the tacks bite into the underside of the carpet when you push down (and sometimes you can hear it too). If you are installing new carpet and don't have tack strips, you'll need to purchase some for the perimeter of the carpet. The come in packs and are pretty cheap. You nail them down with the tacks facing up (or you can screw them down after pre-drilling). Then you can lay your carpet. I hope this helps!

I was told to old can be rented. Us this true and if so is this item one that can be rented?

The Home Depot does have a very good toll rental program and although you will have to check availability in your area I am almost certain that you'll be able to rent one near you.

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.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.

It worked very well for the price. The store was out of the multi-functioning tool and that's how I got this one. The other one was adjustable....that's the difference. I'd buy it again
