" Does exactly what was asked off it although I didnt use the wedges or block the pull bar done the job. Black paint scraped off but wasn't worried about that as it didnt bend or break so cant complain for a tenner. "

Its ok

" It does the job. After using it to fit 4 floors, the tapping block broke. At this price, not a bad thing to replace every few floors, shame they don't sell the three bits separately though. "

A must have piece of kit
22 Jul 2011
By Southampton71
, southampton
" First time I've used a flooring kit and it makes such a difference, even on cheap thin flooring you get a excellent finish. Tapping block makes a huge difference to the overall finish - a really useful addition to my use once in a while hidden at the back of my van tool box. "

Good but basic

" Good for knocking in the joints in laminate flooring to make them nice and tight. The spacers aren't much use though. Could be better value too. "

" needed one of these kits as i forgot my normal one. This one is not as strong as it could be, the draw bar bend on the first floor i fitted, its still usable and if you are only planning to occasionally fit laminate floors its fine "

Not worth it
26 Sep 2014
By RichardEdinburgh
, Edinburgh
" i bought this to help with laminate flooring. I would not recommend for the following reasons:
- the spacers, well you may as well use pieces of laminate flooring for this or plywood or anything else
- the block...this can damage the edge of the flooring so use off cuts of laminate flooring instead that will fit in exactly to the side you want to knock and therefore you dont get any damage at all.
- the pull bar. this is the most useful iten but it easily bends and can easily cause damage to the edge of laminate flooring if it slips.

Not strong enough
18 Oct 2013
By niquicho

" Useful but the plastic tapping block doesn't work as well as an offcut of wood; it started breaking up half way across the kitchen floor. Plenty of wedges which I've also used for hanging doors.
The pull bar I got was not as pictured, it had black paint on it which flakes off as you hit it. "

Cheap and chearful
2 Jun 2015
By Wonderer
, Bourne, Lincs
" Wedges are ok but tapping block not up to the job and pulling bar really needs a wider active service and reinforced strike point. I quickly replaced them with Roughneck products - unfortunately only available from an alternative supplier.
If your just laying a small area of light weight laminate this product might be OK and it's certainly not expensive.

Poor item
27 May 2015
By Stelor34

" Bought the product to assist with the laying of a kitchen/diner floor.
Half way through the job the block broke in half. At about the same time the "bar" bent. Did not need the wedges as off cuts or other timber spacers were of more use. "

" Bought this to replace one I lost.
The 'pull bar' is no longer the hardened shiny steel but cheap junk mild steel which bends when used.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they are prepared to class this as a disposable tool and buy one for every room you need to do. "

Rubbish

" I have just purchased a new home and I'm in the process of replacing the flooring from carpet to laminate. I purchased a good quality 8mm laminate and I wish I had purchased a good quality pull bar. It destroyed the first 2 lengths of laminate so it is going back "
