The ability to rent carpet installation tools such as power stretchers and knee kickers helps handy people install carpeting with a greater chance of success than simply tacking it around the edges of the room. One of the most common requirements for padded carpeting is tackless strips. Unlike the name implies, tackless strips have at least two rows of tacks, which grip the edges of carpet from underneath. Older carpet installations used tacks to nail down the carpet, which garnered tackless strips their name. Standard strips are for wooden subfloors; concrete uses a similar strip, but with special nails.
