As you refasten the carpet to the tack strip, you need to stretch it toward the wall. If you’re dealing with a corner or a small area, you can use a knee kicker alone. Starting at one end of the loose carpet, set the head of the kicker about 2 in. from the tack strip and nudge the carpet tight against the wall. Force the carpet into the tack strip with a stiff putty knife. Also tuck the edge of the carpet into the space between the wall and the tack strip with a putty knife. Continue along the wall, moving thAue kicker over about a few inches each time.
