This was reasonably cheap and ideal for installing carpet, 'less damaging' than my usual trick with a brick chisel.

I was going to buy a traditional bolster chisel to tuck the carpet behind the gripper rails which,although effective, always seems to mark the skirting board and is heavy to use. I saw this lightweight purpose built gadget and was at first put off by the price which seemed a lot for a fairly plain bit of plastic with a handle. However, I splashed out and bought one and boy oh boy is it easier than any other method I have used? Much easier and quicker and no marks. The trouble is I probably wont use it again for years whereas I would have used the bolster for other jobs. Soooo, its great if you do a lot of carpet fitting if not then it is perhaps a bit of an expensive luxury.
