Carpet grippers – sometimes called carpet gripper rods – are a must-have when laying a new carpet. Not only do they prevent your carpet from moving, and the underlay from rippling, but they also help to ensure a clean and tidy finish around the edges of your new flooring.
Here at British Flooring, we supply only the best quality carpet gripper rods on the market, including the famous Royale® German carpet gripper which is:
made from high-quality plywood
made with a pronounced bevel edge – making it suitable for all underlay types
quick and easy to install
available in a choice of sizes
Thanks to its thick and sharp zinc nails, this German-made gripper offers a stronger hold than any other.
How to fit a carpet gripper
Designed to provide a firm grip on your floors, carpet gripper rods are a worthwhile investment and, when properly installed, can prevent your carpets from losing tension once they have been laid.
The first thing you need to do before you fit the gripper is to locate any hidden wires or pipes and make sure that the floor is clear of debris.
If you discover a pipe or wire, you don’t want to use nails to fix the gripper in place. Instead, mark the spot in these areas and use gripper adhesive to stick them down.
When it comes to handling and fitting carpet grippers, always wear gloves as the pins are extremely sharp.
