A: I'm assuming that the hole provides a method of hanging the piece of equipment on a rack or wall.
A: I assume to hang it on a peg board for storage when not in use
A: Yes, but be careful that you don't damage the locking strip when using.
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.
A: Yes, any flat surface object or product you need to pull together. it works. I really couldn't see the use for this tool to start with, but it has some neat and helpful uses.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, although this tool is specific to laminate and wood installations,this pro pull bar product is useful during luxury vinyl plank flooring installations. (per flooring manufacturer's specifications)
A: Yes, I used it a few months ago to put now floating vinyl and worked great.
A: Yes. I used it for my LVP and worked well. But it is heavy and must be careful using it to not damage the planks.
A: Yes very helpful
A: Yes, that's what I used it on.
A: A bit over 16 inches.
A: there is two sizes one about 10+- weaker and bend , One about 16 inches +- heavy duty excelent
A: This bar measures 16.25 inches.
A: About 14 inches
A: I think it is 12",
A: Only before the glue dries... Otherwise great for floating floors that separate due to weather conditions.
A: I do not believe it is required for this type of flooring
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.
A: Yes. It pulls the seams tight especially if the boards are a little warped.
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.
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.
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
A: I have only put down one t&g floor and I didn't use it no.
