Not fit for purpose
Within minutes of using this the plastic surrounding the teeth that grip the carpet began to break up. Not strong enough for the job. I took it back for a refund

Not fit for carpet stretching!
Broke during first use.
Used to fit and stretch new bedroom carpet, needed to stretch final corner near door and the metal teeth started falling out!
Managed to just finish with the remaining few teeth.
After inspecting found the metal teeth are simply embeded in a plastic bed with a supporting plastic lip, this lip had broke off in places allowing the teeth to push back and fallout.
Reading the included user instructions it states " This tool is not to be used for stretching carpet; it is only to be used as an aid for locating the carpet on the tack strips located around the perimeter of the room".
This been the case it should not be advertised on this site as "Value for money carpet-stretching tool".

Great bit of kit
Bought this's stead of hiring as I had to fit carpets in two different rooms at different times. I was expecting it to be quite cheaply made and not great adjustment on the pins. However mucbo my surprise this is a great bit of kit. I was very happy with the quality of product as well as the padding and support on the part you whack with your knee! You need to set the pin depth correctly however other than that it's simple to use and works a treat!

Just the job for getting the carpet tight up to the edge. So easy to use and a good price from Screwfix!
