How to fit wood carpet gripper rods

Fitting wood Carpet Gripper is a fairly easy job for anyone with basic DIY knowledge. It will also help you save  money as part of fitting your own carpeting. It will also make you proud of what you can achieve if you put your mind to it, so don't be afraid just follow our carpet gripper fitting guide.



Tools required for fitting wood carpet gripper are:


  1. Good quality claw hammer
  2. Carpet Gripper shears or wood saw if shears are not available
  3. Measuring tape and pencil
  4. Thick gloves
  5. Protective eye googles
To start with please remember that wood carpet gripper edge has 100's of small metal pins in, which are there to hold your carpet in place when stretched, so be careful and do wear saftey googles and gloves.
Carpet gripper strips are made in 5ft lengths so have a quick measure around the perimeter of the room in feet, deducting any doorways then divide by 5 this will give you the number of sticks of carpet gripper needed for that room.
Lay out the gripper around the room so that the name printed on it can be read, this will ensure the bevelled edge will be towards the wall. Carpet gripper can then be fixed to the floor. How far away from the wall should I fit the carpet gripper strips? The gripper edge strips should be fixed 1 1/2 times the thickness of your new carpet to be installed away from the wall. Check measure the depth of your new carpet with a tape measure before fixing any carpet gripper. If you guess the distance you carpet will not fit neatly. 
Start in the corner of the room and fix gripper in 5ft lengths. Follow the contour of your skirting board as much as possible. When it becomes apparent a 5ft length will be too long, cut to the size required. Cut small pieces of gripper to contour around door archatraves and frames. Dust your knees off and admire your work!
