    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, but be careful that you don't damage the locking strip when using.

    by|Dec 8, 2018

      A:  I used it on mine but I inserted a small block of plastic to spread the force over a larger area.

      A:  Yes, but you also need a special plastic block with groves cut in that match the vinyl planks so you don't chip the edges. Tap lightly, the vinyl planks MUST be at a 45 degree angle to slip into place.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  Only before the glue dries... Otherwise great for floating floors that separate due to weather conditions.

                      by|May 6, 2014

                        A:  I do not believe it is required for this type of flooring

                        by|Mar 19, 2014

                        A:  Hey there Mark, Your pull bar will be very handy not only for being able to get smaller end pieces tight along the walls, but also to help you properly lock your tongue and groove in on the end row as well, where space is more limited.

                        A:  I have used the bar for multiple type of flooring including laminate and engineering wood flooring. I use it to not only for pulling pieces together in tight space but in the open areas. The weight of this bar and it's shape allow me to tap lightly to move boards. That is particularly important in glue down situations.

                        A:  Yes, it is a must have (inexpensive) flooring tool, if you want to do the job right.

                        by|Nov 29, 2016

                          A:  Yes. It pulls the seams tight especially if the boards are a little warped.

                          by|Jul 8, 2015

                            A:  My only experience is with snap-together laminate (both planks and squares), but it was absolutely essential for pulling pieces tight when up against a wall. So if the tongues and grooves on the cork flooring are tight--so much so that finger strength alone won't suffice (if you even have room for your finger tips)--then this tool should do the trick. Think of it as a "remote hammer", redirecting the striking force. If the flooring can stand up to the "tapping" to seat the t&g tightly, this tool will make the awkward easy.

                            by|Mar 31, 2016

                            A:  It depends on your flooring and how much force is required to assemble it. If you can snug the pieces together some other way, no. It works great for the SmartCore flooring I bought that does require some force to get it snap together. Otherwise, I would have had to use a pry-bar to push off the wall and probably marred the wall.

                            by|Oct 21, 2016

                            A:  I would say yes to get tight joints I would recomend having the larger size on hand. BETTER to have on hand and not need rsthen NOT have and need in middle of instalation

                              Strong and heavy, this pull bar allows one to hammer laminate flooring back together so there is no unsightly gaps between the ends of the boards without damaging the boards. Very happy with this purchase!

                              Beware, felt backing incorrectly positioned.
                              Nice heavy duty pull bar. BUT, the soft felt backing meant to protect floors from scratches is positioned incorrectly. It's too far away from the end of the bar. As a result, it doesn't lift the end of the bar off the floor. I added a pad at the end of the bar to prevent scratches.

                                The Roberts 16.25 in. Long Pro Pull Bar is the perfect tool for those last row (edges) when installing two different hardwood floors an a ceramic tile floor. It is the perfect size, and you never have to worry about the bar denting due to the strong piece it is. If this pull bar is to ever get misplaced, I will definitely head out to purchase another. Otherwise, it should be around a life time.

                                Has that extra length for leverage over the tool you may buy in a kit. That extra length can make a huge difference in your day and how your project looks at the end of it. Very useful for tightening the final few rows of flooring as you move into the wall. This tool seems indestructible and I will never have to buy another one. Well worth the investment for the minimal purchase price.

                                This is a very good tool. It is worth the cost for its specialized purpose of tapping laminate flooring over to lock with out damaging the end of the flooring material. Also the tool is long enough to reach under the toe kick of a run of cabinets to tap the flooring over to lock. I have done flooring quite a bit without a tool like this and have cobbled up tools to try to get the effect that this provides and I can say I should have gotten one of these sooner!!

                                I purchased this to help me install laminate flooring in one room. I will keep the tool for the next project. The tool is easy to use but I wish the ends were just a little longer as it takes practice to hit them without having the hammer bounce off.
